Huston Smith

I have read a couple of his books. I bumped into this video on youtube and that reminded me of mentioning him to Mike Waters. I see he has a book on Buddhism, and if it is even half as good as his other books, I think you will find it very useful.

The man has certainly lived an interesting life.
