Life An Enigma, a Precious Jewel
The eternity of life and life's inherent dignity are central themes in Ikeda's discussions of topics that include body, spirit and mind; individuality and self-realization; human life, nature and the cosmos; and life and death as a continuum. The literature he cites is broad and extensive—from scientist Charles Darwin and philosopher Immanuel Kant to literary Walt Whitman and historian Arnold Toynbee—in comparing various views of the whole human being. At the heart of his approach is the author's Buddhist perspective, which places an understanding of cosmic life within the practical grasp of daily human existence. As in many of Ikeda's writings, Buddhist philosophy not only informs but provides an inclusive framework for the diversity of knowledge about life and its environment. Though this volume was published more than 20 years ago, the questions it addresses—what is life, what is its meaning, how do we know what we know—are perennial. It presents a timeless survey of scientific, philosophical and religious thought of both East and West.

Life An Enigma, a Precious Jewel has 94 ratings and 11 reviews. Marshall said: This book attempts to reconcile Buddhism with modern scientific knowledge. Melissa Bradford rated it it was amazing May 23, Excusing the obvious evangelical component of this conclusion, I think there is a lot we could gain as a society from incorporating Buddhist tenets of love into our everyday living. It was purely speculative, and never claimed that Buddhist concepts are somehow proven by modern science. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. A bedside book I shall go back to u. This book is absolutely amazing, in fact it is ka blowing.
