Open Secret is an essential work by the mysterious Wei Wu Wei, author of a series of Buddhist and Taoist spiritual classics. In poetry, dialogs, epigrams, and essays, he addresses our illusions concerning the mind, the self, logic, time, space, and causation. His substantive interpretation of The Heart Sutra—the epitome of Buddhist teachings—conveys the inexpressible truth of existence.
Reading this jewel of a book, one enters into a heart and mind possessed of a very clear insight into the essence of understanding. "The nonsense of Wei Wu Wei is the sense of the infinite" (Sunday Standard, Bombay).
The pseudonymous Irish author was born in England in 1895 and died in 1986.
Praise for Open Secret
When I first read Open Secret, I could not make any sense out of it, except that I had the good fortune to realize that this book was a real treasure. I repeatedly felt that Wei Wu Wei was having a private joke at my expense. As I realized some time later, it was to bring about a sudden awakening in this body-mind mechanism called Ramesh.
