COMING SOON! - Buddhism: Key Ideas
From Abhidhamma to Zen, this book offers a simple introduction to key Buddhist ideas - each explained in straightforward language, and suitable for students from GCSE upwards.
As an ebook, each of its terms has links to others. You can start with any one entry - the Buddha, perhaps, or Meditation or Zen - and follow the links to related topics so that you build up a complete picture of the key ideas of Buddhism.
It will be available in July at a ridiculously low price!!
Time to think about holidays... and what to read on that 'beach'.

Going high res...
With the latest iPad and other computers getting high res screens - 'retina' screens in Applespeak - I thought it was about time that the images on this site started to accommodate this wonderful new world of screen technology.
So, from now on, new images will appear in higher resolution. The first photo galleries to go high res are the ones on Vienna and Berchtesgaden. Just take a look and see the difference, if you have a new iPad or MacBook Pro. Please accept my apologies if the screens take a little longer to load - that's the price you pay for an increase in file size.
And - whatever your views about Apple and tax, production facilities etc - I have to say that the screens on the new MacBook Pro laptops are absolutely, gobsmackingly, wonderful! If you're into photography, they will transform the way you view even your older images.
Sorry if this looks like a commercial plug. I get no commission from Apple, just speak as I find!
