About my libraryI love Indian art, especially Indian Miniature Painting. If you have found any good books with this subject, please drop me a message.

You will find a lot of books about Buddhism and Zen in my collection. Religion and philosophy are special interests but more with an Eastern psychological perspective. So, I'm interested in how we make sense of our world rather than how the world makes sense. I tend towards skepticism. Not the trivial skepticism of popular "bumper sticker" atheism but I am skeptical of notions of objective reality and the transcendence of reason.

In my early 20's I read "Beginning to See" by Sujata in which he wrote "There is dishonesty in any mind that demands that reality occur in a specific way".
