Preface

This book was first written in 1987 in response to the increasing interest in Buddhism amongst Singaporeans. To my surprise and delight, it has turned out to be very successful. The Buddha Dhamma Mandala Society, Singapore, alone has printed 30,000 copies and it has been translated into several languages including Tamil, Chinese and Nepali. Requests to for copies have come from as far away as Australia, Argentina and the Seychelle Islands. In July this year, I visited a remote hermitage high in the Himalayas in Ladakh only to discover that the abbot had not only read Good Question, Good Answer but greatly appreciated it. All this had convinced me that this little book's
style and contents has filled an important need and that revision and enlargement would enhance its value. Hence this new edition. Those wishing to reprint "Good Question, Good Answer" or translate it may do so without writing for permission. However, we would appreciate it if you send us two copies and let us know how many copies have been printed.

Now we'll try the walking meditation. How to do it? Well, first you find a level track about 15 to 20 paces and walk back and forth noting the parts of the steps in the walking. Don't worry, it's all explained in the diagrams that follow, and there's a flow chart with more instruction as well - we look after you very nicely here.

“Who and what am I?” “Why do I exist?” Each of us, during some part of our life, wonders about these questions. While we’re aware of our own being, we don’t actually know how or why we came to be. Our existence poses a great mystery. Our view of who we are and why we’re here, consciously or unconsciously, affect every moment of our lives.
