Editorial – Many Roads – Time for a Change



First of all, I would like to thank you all for your best wishes and comments following the first issue of Many Roads. I think most people found something of interest there. Unfortunately, due to pressure of work, I’ve been unable to give as much time as I would have liked to the magazine and I’m sorry about that.

However, I’m delighted to say that I’ve received a number of enlightening, moving and thought provoking pieces for the magazine and I hope you will all continue to keep sending them in to me.  But, following advice from Rinpoche, I’ve decided to change the way we present Many Roads and instead of a one- off magazine a few times a year, we will from now on post different articles etc on an on-going regular basis. Perhaps one or two articles a week.  This way, you can read and digest articles as they are posted and still be able to go back and read over your favourites.  Let’s see how this develops.

To start this off, I am very happy to share with you all one of the best articles I have read about quantum physics and Buddhist thoughts on the nature of reality. It is by Graham Smetham, who has written a book about this subject called: Quantum Buddhism – Dancing in Emptiness. This article introduces the ideas presented in Graham’s book and  Ringu Tulku was so impressed by the article that he encouraged me to make it available to everyone as soon as possible.

With many thanks to Graham for kindly sharing with us.
