"Buddyzm" dla początkujących i zainteresowanych
Buddyzm - Mariangela D'Onza Chiodo

Książka "Buddyzm" Mariangeli D'Onza Chiodo jest krótkim wprowadzeniem w tematykę buddyzmu. Nie jest to jednak typowy wykład skupiający się na doktrynie, założeniach i kulcie. Autorka z jednej strony kreśli proces rozwoju ruchu i przekształcania się go w religię, a drugiej pokazuje też historyczne tło starożytnych Indii. Mamy więc próbę chronologicznego uporządkowania historii życia i legendy Buddy Śakjamuniego, założenia doktryny i konsekwencje podziałów w obrębie buddyjskich wspólnot. W ostatniej części znalazło się też kilka słów o postrzeganiu buddyzmu przez Zachód a w pod koniec również odniesienie do akcentów wspólnych między buddyzmem i chrześcijaństwem.

 

"Budda był przekonany, że w kobietach koncentrują się wszystkie negatywne moce namiętności, które zaciemniają umysły. Dlatego nawet później nigdy nie przestał żałować dopuszczenia ich do sanghi, uważając ten fakt za niewątpliwą przyczynę rozkładu w przyszłości jego nauki."

Mariangela D'Onza Chiodo "Buddyzm"

 

 

 

 

Świątynia buddyjska w stylu japońskim (Sarnath, 2009 r.)

 


Pozycja warta polecenia osobom zainteresowanym nie tyle wyłącznie samą religią, co również jej ewolucją i warunkami, które ją kształtowały.

Wasted potential, which is a crying shame
Tibetan Cross - Mike Bond

"Big business, war. The biggest. You know, one of the poorest kept secrets about Nam was we got into it to protect the CIA–their drug smuggling rings out of the Golden Triangle.”

“No, I don't believe that.”

"You ask any guy who worked in Air America, the CIA freight line, in the sixties, and he'll tell you about the tons of heroin they shipped out every month, out of Laos and Cambodia and South Vietnam–Hell, on river patrols we'd sometimes bring a boatful (spl) of the shit right down the Mekong. The CIA put it on planes and sent it Stateside, kept the locals high and mellow and made the CIA billions of bucks they spent on actions Congress or the generals wouldn't go for.” Alex kicked a stone from the trail. "When we split Nam, the CIA lost its major source of funding, baby.” – Conversation between Alex and Cohen, Tibetan Cross – Mike Bond

 

"For me that was the final turnoff, about the States ...”

"What?”

"That we're a society based on war, that we can't exist economically or psychologically without someone to hate.”

"That's why we invented the good old Commies. Those folks I was fighting in Nam had never even heard of Communism. They were defending their homeland from aggression, same as any American would.” – Alex, Tibetan Cross – Mike Bond

 

It seems like I would learn. I really don’t like Mike Bond’s writing style. It is too choppy, too terse, for my tastes. And then there is the “comic book” brutality – the hero takes damage that is, literally, too much to be survived – and then jumps up and runs away like nothing has happened. Clive Cussler, James Rollins and others write ‘kick-ass’ heroes – but even they wouldn’t find this amount of brutality against their heroes survivable. Bond is one of the most testosterone driven thriller writers out there, which is fine in and of itself, but come on, Mike. Can we have a little realism at some point?

 

This is the third Mike Bond book I have reviewed and, again, it seems like I would learn. I am never happy with them, but I get sucked in, because his overall story concepts are exceptional, and his research on the actual political and military history and up-to-date happenings is beyond reproach. It is terribly frustrating! I want to enjoy the intrigue, but the bad case of testosterone poisoning means that I wind up skimming the story instead of enjoying it.

 

Beginning in Nepal, this book resurrects the war between China and Tibet just after the Vietnam War. Our heroes are leading a photographer/journalist and several Sherpa to Mustang - the former Kingdom of Lo, hidden in the rain shadow of the Himalaya in one of the most remote corners of Nepal. Only, things are not really what they seem, of course, in this shattered land, where starvation, murder, and incredible brutality is carried out by the Chinese against the poor and defenseless lands of Nepal and Tibet. And the Tibetans and Nepalese fight back in any way they can - with a little help from the "friendly" CIA. . .

 

"It is difficult to fight tanks and planes with stones.”

 

When Cohen escapes from the slaughter of his friends and traveling companions, including his best friend Alex, he treks alone cross-country in a desperate attempt to reach Katmandu (also Kathmandu) before he is captured and killed by the same weapons runners who killed his friends. The trip is brutal and harsh, but his arrival brings yet more death to those he knows and loves.

 

I am become death, the destroyer of worlds. - J. Robert Oppenheimer

 

Drugs, guns, human trafficking, and rivers of blood all wend their way through Bond’s work. As I stated previously, l am always left disappointed in Bond’s books, and still I come back for more, skimming for the realities of the story and trying to dismiss the ridiculous “heroes”. Be that as it may, it calls for a strong stomach as well as an ability to retain an open mind about just how twisted and sick the US, and their CIA lapdogs, really are – the misery they have wrought across the world. Would that Bond could see his way to dropping the testosterone levels – it would certainly make his books more approachable by a larger reading audience.

 

I received this book from the publisher in return for a realistic review. Five stars for the military and political research. Minus a star for bad writing. Minus another star for sheer testosterone poisoning and unrealistic character development.

Buddha's Orphans by Samrat Upadhyay
Buddha's Orphans - Samrat Upadhyay

I rarely give 1 star reviews, but this overlong and poorly-written family saga earned it. This review will contain SPOILERS, but you won’t want to read the book anyway.

This is a family saga, more or less, set in Nepal in the second half of the 20th century. The central focus is an orphan named Raja, though the story is told primarily through the eyes of his love interest, Nilu. Meanwhile the early chapters feature a street vendor named Kaki who adopts Raja as a baby, while toward the end there are random psychic flashbacks about the life of his dead mother. Unfortunately, from a young age Raja is an unappealing character, perhaps in part because of the author’s distasteful imagery; here he is as a young boy curious about his birth mother:

“He’d find a woman sitting by herself on the grass, doodling on the ground with a stick, and he’d perch a few yards away. . . . But before that woman looked up, another would glide past, gesticulating with her fingers as she carried on a silent conversation with herself. Then Raja would abandon the first woman and follow the second. And during this pursuit, he’d spot one or two other women who didn’t look any less sad, and he’d feel confused and go to a bush and pee.”

Okay? At any rate, Raja finds a new surrogate mother, gleefully abandoning the woman who raised him up to this point:

“After Raja’s bath, Jamuna would make the boy lie on the carpet in their bedroom and massage him. She’d rub her palms with oil and draw circles on his belly with her fingers, making his shriveled penis jiggle.”

We are talking about a 6-year-old boy and his mother-figure here, and no, this creepy image does not foreshadow child molestation. Though don’t worry, there is plenty of child molestation in the book.

At any rate, Raja becomes a teenager and gets involved with Nilu, who adores him for some reason. I’m sure we’d all want to be friends with this charming pair:

“Often they were together, rarely relinquishing each other’s company to join their other friends, who were not too many. Raja had a group of friends who sat around admiring him for his bravado, but he didn’t hesitate to abandon them when he saw Nilu walking through the campus gates. Nilu in general kept to herself, preferring Raja’s company to that of her women classmates, who seemed to enjoy gossip and talking about fashion more than anything else.”

Stereotypes ahoy! This book runs on stereotypes: all the men are losers, and all the women are maternal, and all the characters are so flat that that’s about all you need to know. Raja and Nilu of course defy their families to marry; Raja then takes the opportunity to mooch off Nilu’s teaching job for years, and without even helping around the house (he prefers to eat out, on her dime). When he eventually finds a job, he does nothing but complain and immediately decide to quit, and Nilu enables him:

“[W]hen she pictured him fidgeting in his chair, drumming the desk with a pencil, responding to rude, dismissive clients, she felt he had a point.”

Poor baby, with an unsatisfying first job! But life moves on. They ignore their families, including the poor woman who devoted her life to Raja for years, and whom he refuses for no reason to acknowledge or visit; she dies of a broken heart, for which Raja never feels a shred of remorse. He and Nilu have a baby, and Raja gets over his giant sense of entitlement (born, apparently, of not knowing the identity of his birth mother) long enough to hold down a job, and then after a few years, the child dies. Our hero is supportive to Nilu in her distress:

“ ‘Don’t you have anything else to say? I’m so sick and tired of hearing about how your world has gone dark. Fed up! I can’t listen to it anymore.’”

So he leaves, demanding of his upset wife, “Why can’t you think a bit positively about this? Why do you always have to be negative?” This is totally reasonable, because most people would think positively about being abandoned by their spouse soon after the death of their only child.

Because she is a woman, Nilu soon finds a new outlet for her maternal urges:

“She was fully aware that with Shiva she experienced a cravenness that was more maternal than anything.”

I don’t even know what that means, except that, of course, Nilu is maternal.

Anyway, this lovely couple reconciles; sadly, more than 100 pages remain in the book. Thus, the random psychic flashbacks about Raja’s mother, which don’t affect the plot, but do reveal that despite being portrayed as a victim of her father’s abuse, she is just as sympathetic as her son, inclined to knocking over old disabled women in the street:

“Holding the books to her chest, she trotted down the sidewalk, brushing past pedestrians. The old spitting lady from the neighborhood, the one with the horribly bent back, was a few yards away, stooping in front of a peanut vendor, arguing about something, probably asking for samples with no intention of buying. As she breezed past her, Mohini thwacked her on the back of the head with her books, making her tumble forward, onto the mountain of peanuts arranged on a nanglo, which scattered all over the sidewalk.”

Lovely. Then there is a random subplot about Raja and Nilu’s adult daughter. Raja never does redeem himself; he simply grows older. Then the book ends. And no, I don’t know what the point of any of it is, except that if you never knew your birth mother, you have a Freudian excuse for anything, apparently.

Long story short, the most positive statement I can make about this book is that the sheer unpleasantness of its otherwise dull characters kept my attention better than the inoffensive blandness often found in bad books. The story is way too long, without any plot to speak of; what events do occur are predictable and trite. The writing is clunky. The setting has the potential to be interesting, but the author never delves into it; Nepalese history passes in the background, but in a way that makes little sense to a reader without prior knowledge of the region. Really, there is no reason to read this, unless (like me) you find yourself looking for a novel set in Nepal and with limited options, or you are curious to see just how unappealing an author can make a protagonist, without apparent reason. Avoid.
