Buddhism AND

The little and usually overlooked word AND lies at the very heart of Buddhist thought and practice, for it links interdependence and abundance. As Gay Watson shows in this elegant and thought-provoking book, appreciating the power of AND not only changes our perspective: it can change our life.

She writes: ‘If a modest mud pie expressed the noble intention of a gift to the Buddha, so may the humble word “AND” express the wonder and richness of Buddhist thought … a brief conjunction which reveals the rich, complex interdependence and impermanence of everything.’

‘And is not merely additive; it is creative.’
