Product Details


“I highly recommend Rodney Smith’s book Touching the Infinite. His explanations are interesting, lucid and practical. The Four Foundations of Mindfulness are, in themselves, a most important guide to the realization of the Dhamma. I congratulate Rodney on his excellent work.”—Ajahn Sumedho, author of The Sound of Silence and The Way It Is

“Rodney Smith shares the beautiful fruits of his many decades of devoted practice of the Buddha’s teachings. Touching the Infinite freshly unpacks the instructions on touching the true nature of reality through developing an intimate relationship with the living components of our own direct, moment-to-moment experience. Seekers of system updates for dharma in the 21st century will find much fulfillment in this book, which has been written from the heart in a voice that is delightfully creative.”—Dzogchen Ponlop, author of Rebel Buddha

Touching the Infinite is a subtle in-depth re-reading of the Mindfulness Sutra expanding the horizons of mindfulness beyond self, beyond mind, all the way out to the ineffable and the sacred. As a Zen practitioner, I am struck by the consonance of these teachings with Zen. Thoughtful and provocative, Rodney’s words free us from the self-clinging inherent in so many of our received ideas about Dharma. Especially helpful are his many meditational thought-experiments, that bring his message home.” —Norman Fischer, author of Experience: on Thinking, Writing, Language and Religion and What Is Zen? Plain Talk for a Beginner’s Mind
