“Magnificent, inspiring! . . . This excellent book has come to me personally as an illuminating text, despite my close on sixty years’ concern with Buddhism . . . [Batchelor’s] approach is likely to appeal to many categories of readers who have hitherto never considered Buddhism as having great relevance to themselves.” from the Foreword by John Blofeld

Alone With Others is a uniquely contemporary guide to understanding the timeless message of Buddhism, and in particular its relevance in actual human relations. It was inspired by Shantideva’s Guide to the Bodhisattava’s Way of Life, the oral instructions of living Buddhist masters, Martin Heidegger’s classic Being and Time, and the writings of the Christian theologians Paul Tillich and John MacQuarrie.
