Kerouac on the Buddah

“Buddha is only for the West to study as history, that it is a subject for understanding, and Yoga can profitably be practiced to that end. But it is not for the West an Answer, not a Solution. We must learn by acting, experiencing, and living, that is, above all by Love and Suffering,” — Jack Kerouac – letter to William Burroughs, 1954
