The Other Side of Midnight: The Fundamental Principle of Polarity.

Original Title in English
By Author: Dillon Masters 

About the Book:
 

“The Other Side…” tells how the principle of polarity, when correctly understood, can transform our sense of conflict into harmony and show us how to solve the many problems we face today. This vision moves us from delusion to clarity and provides us with the means to meet our challenges with respect, dignity and truth. Moving from bad dreams (our present reality) to good dreams (our opportunity) is a matter of waking up to the integral nature of connectivity between ubiquitous polarity, regardless of venue ⎯ physical or metaphysical. While primarily a Zen thesis, the author employs material from Christian mystics, other Buddhists and even quantum physics to state his case. Read More



About the Author: 
Dillon Masters was born in 1940 and cut his Zen teeth 30 years ago while living in a Zen Monastery in the Catskill mountains of upstate New York. It was there at Dai Bosatsu that he awakened to the Buddhist understanding of reality following a major spiritual and emotional crisis which brought him to the edge of death. More details

Vietnamese Classical Literature - 19th Century

Vietnam Classical Literature is not known to the outside world as Chinese Literature. For the younger generation, the study of Vietnamese literature seem to fade away, leaving place to contemporary authors on topics on modern existentialism. In my attempt to "come back to source", I have started a collection of books on Vietnam, and classify them under various topics such as Culture, History, Vietnam War, Politics, Biographies, Contemporary Vietnam, International Relations, Doing Business in Vietnam, Reference and Languages, Zen Buddhism, Philosophy, Art and Literature. 

Here is a short picture of the literary world under the last dynasty of Vietnam: the Nguyen. 

Indeed, the 19th Century was a flourishing century for literature and the arts in Vietnam. It opened up with the Kim Vân Kiều  by Nguyễn Du (1765-1820) and closed with the anonymous Song of True Patriotism (Chính Khí Ca :1900).
