Sorry to hear about your father, Bill.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Condolences, Bill. A man's books say so much about who he was.

Since you have read some Zen stuff I wondered if you ever looked into the Tibetan stuff? For an earthy and enlightened introduction to the real core of that kind of Buddhism I recommend "Words of My Perfect Teacher" by Patrul Rinpoche.

I have read a few books on Tibetan Buddhism. I took a class on Buddhist Psychology that was taught by a Tibetan Lama who had fled with the Dalai Lama so we had the required reading from that and I've read a few by the Dalai Lama too.

Soto Zen and Taoism are kind of the core of my personal religiophilosophy. I learn lots of things from lots of different places though.
