Three Books in One - A Book Good Enough to Read Three Times

There are three books in one - in this one book. The book is organized in 10 chapters - each with a stand-alone segment of analysis of one of the 10 oxhearding pictures. I first read only the oxhearding interpretations (that's book 1) - this was a few years ago. I then read the chapters by themselves (minus the ox-hearding interpretations) - a couple of years or so ago (that's book 2). I recently read the book as it was written - that's book 3. Whichever way the story of your narrative starts - if followed all the way - it still ends up in an empty circle (which I am yet to see). Perhaps, it's time to re-read!

bought to write a school term paper

I had to write a school term paper. I chose Meditation so I bought this book. After researching a bit, I decided to change the paper's subject. I looked though this book but I have not read it.

A must

Before starting the practice of meditation, riding the ox home,is an absolute must.History giving meaning to this newfound life style.
