If someone is a Buddhist in the West, the chances are they have converted to Buddhism. But what does this mean? In this book the Buddhist life is viewed as a process of conversion at deeper and deeper levels - as a perpetual revolution.
A respected translator and author of over fifty books, Sangharakshita began studying BUddhism at the age of 16. After 20 years studying in India he returned to England and set up the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order which has over 65 centres worldwide, including the USA.
