Brutal Beginnings by The Ruthless Arena

I got at mail from Ciaran who runs the Ruthless Arena. Some months ago he and the hardworking forum members published a book with the best stuff from the first months work on the forum. If you don´t know about the Ruthless Arena, you should take a look (The forum has been shut down now). The […]

It starts out citing the author himself: “Enlightenment is just something unenlightened people made up,” and it goes on following a 70-year old zen-guru´s travel through USA and Mexico. This book is different, read it for fun or for the sake […]
