  Am currently reading "Zen and the Art of Motor Cycle Maintenance" by Robert M Pirsig. It got me interested to look up Zen on the Internet. I don't understand it but am trying to. I'm still searching for enlightenment - maybe oneday I'll find it.

  It is a well pillared beleif of mine that we are products of our enviroment, because when we experience certain things in our enviroment we retain knowledge and emotion of it hence, changing our feelings and judgments.That is also a major reason why we are different. so in other words, our memory is us. so if we were to erase our memory we would be totally different people. But according to buddhism when we are "reincarnated" we` have no memory of our "prior life", therefore in our new life we totally different people hence proving death and human human extinction. But in your religion the person IN the "new life" is refered to as the same person. which not true. The way see ( which has been proven through logic) is that your religion asks full righteousness for the sake of someone elses prosperity. Someone we do not know. I will not waste my time. Please note that I only say this on the behalf and for the sake of reason.

  Buddhism makes no sense, it asks full rightsneousnes but does specify what is right.It also says you should get to nirvana, but in order to do that you have to eliminate desire, but in that proccess are not you desiring nirvana, hence making enlightenment impossible. And a nother thing. It asks one to give up all possessions, but by doing that you would create and obstacle for one who would want to do the same.

  In reading through the site thoroughly, I noticed that you need someone to edit the documents. There are numerous mispellings and words clumped together. Please let me know if I can be of assistance with this.

  I was impressed with the simplicity of the site, as it provides a good guide for people like myself who are new to the ideas and philosophies of Zen. I am currently studying architecture at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne. I am beginning to do research for my dissertation as part of my degree, for which I am interested in studying how Eastern beliefs, such has Zen, have influenced modern Western architecture. I am having difficulty in finding related books and I would be grateful if you could use your knowledge of Zen to guide me in the direction of any references that you believe would be of use to me. Yours hopefully Lisa Sheridan
