Wettimuny’s The Buddha’s Teaching and the Ambiguity of Existence is one of those rare and important books that everyone needs, if only they knew it. It builds a bridge between the most important thoughts and thinkers of the east and west: the Existentialists in the west, and the Buddha in the east. More importantly, it completes the task begun by the western thinkers, to bring humankind into maturity after a particularly difficult adolescence.
Here we discuss and illustrate the Eye of the Teaching, dhamma-cakkhu. This means to see reality from the point of view of the Buddha’s teaching, the next stage in the attainment of enlightenment after the reflexive experience of mindfulness.
