Following the success of the publication of The Supreme Doctrine in 1998, Sussex Academic Press is proud to announce a completely new and updated translation by Graham Rooth, MD, MRCPsych, of this seminal work. The Light of Zen in the West also includes a new translation of one of Benoit's other major texts, The Realization of the Self. The volume also contains two lesser known works - Buddha and the Intuition of the Universal and Techniques of Timeless Realization - and has a glossary and index. Benoit's writings on the human predicament were influenced by his studies in Zen Buddhism and psychoanalysis. Both books foreshadow contemporary transpersonal and integral psychology: through the re-integration of psychology and metaphysics, Benoit invites us to make our own journey toward spiritual transformation and the intuitive understanding of universal truths.
