  • Re: Book of Eights: General comments

    If some of the members who have the book already feel like posting some general comments on the book, maybe you can already begin.

    We may all catch up as best we can eventually.

    We are leaving on vacation on Sunday, so I am not sure how often I'll be able to post.
    But please go aheadπŸ‰πŸ‘

    The only problem I see, even if we have the impression that some chapters do not have much food for discussion, is that to be able to discuss themes and broad general comments, we would all have had to finish the book.

    Maybe we could follow the format that @karasti outlined above, as pinpointed in the book, encompassing themes and chapters:

    1) Letting go of views (Chapters 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12 and 13)

    2) Sensual Craving (Chapters 1, 2, 7 and 9)

    3) Description of the Sage (Chapters 4, 6, 9, 10, 13 and 15)

    4) Training (Chapters 14, 15 and 16)

    We could create threads for each theme, and add to them as we read each chapter...
