Buddhist Romanticism by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

An important new book By Thanissaro Bhikkhu titled Buddhist Romanticism has been published. This brilliant book is an in-depth study of the pervasive influence of early Romantic thought in shaping the way Buddhism is taught in the West, and of the practical consequences of following the Romantics rather than the Buddha in approaching the problem of suffering and stress.

This book is avaliable as a free PDF Here: Buddhist Romanticism PDF
