Sarvananda introduces his new book ‘Solitude and Loneliness: A Buddhist View’.
“Some of us are naturally drawn to solitude. For others, the idea of being on our own, whether in the wilds or even in the privacy of our room, can seem like a very unattractive option. Loneliness is an emotion that many of us seek to avoid at all costs and, for those of us for whom this is true, solitude and loneliness may appear synonymous. In this book, we’ll be looking at the Buddhist perspetive on loneliness and how a Buddhist might deal with this problematic emotion. We’ll also be exploring in what way time spent in solitude can be of benefit on the Buddhist path, and we’ll be investigating the seeming paradox that, in facing up to our essential aloneness, we come to recognize how essentially connected to others we truly are.”
‘Solitude and Loneliness: A Buddhist View’ is available to purchase from the Windhorse online store, £8.99
