    Here's some advice. Go to library or book shop and get whichever book(s) look interesting to you. I think that's your best bet.


    New album 'The Essential Nonsensical' out now. Check out some tracks here...

    Ok if you ant some suggestions I will give you a couple of books that really made an impression on me:

    Tao Teh Ching - the Translation by CH Wu is one I like. I can email this to you if you can't find it as a PDF or it is available from Shambalah.

    Hua Hu Ching - translated by Brian Browne Walker - love it.

    I Ching - by same translator

    Hagakure - most people on here agree that is a classic I think...

    Musashi - Eiji Yoshikawa - GREAT novel...easy reading...if you wanna ease into reading...

    The Soul of Rumi - Coleman Barks - beautiful poetry....

    Dhamapada - The Buddha....get's deep with this one..

    Rich Dad, Poor Dad - Robert Kiyosaki

    The Autobiography of Malcom X


    I tried to give a broad spectrum...also, where I said the translator...that is because I have also seen the same text by other translators and I didn't like it.

    That should keep you busy a while...

    Is that monkey one this:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Journey-West...109034-5167061

    I think that's the one I have...I really didn't feel that one at all...didn't even read half of it...it was a real let down from Monkey Magic lol.

    Yeah Mushashi is great. I stayed up nights reading that.

    I just saw Catcher in the Rye like 5 mins ago in this library...must be a sign.

    A couple of other great books if you're willing to order online are
    Muata Ashby's Egyptian Book of the Dead
    And Metu Neter 1 &2

    Why was this thread moved from Know the Ledge to scriptures?

    If you like horror get some stephen king shit.
    Everythings eventual is a good one because it's a bunch of short stories(some really good, others not so good).

    The shining is a fucking amazing book, much better and different to the movie (even though kubrick made it).
