Reading the Tipitaka is a spiritual adventure; a spiritual quest; a form of prayer; a type of meditation; a chance to sit at the very foot of the Living Buddha. Reading the Tipitaka often leads to a sense of awe and wonder, and to feelings of transcendence and profound compassion. New Guide can help with the adventure. Matthew Meghaprasara
