Heidegger Interviewed by a Buddhist Monk



Bikkhu Maha Mani, to be precise. Now that's what I'm talkin' about! I think it's from 1964. If anyone knows different, let me know.

The monk's name means “Great Jewel.” Of great interest, without doubt, is how Heidegger stresses a difference between Buddhist and Western thinking in terms of granting some kind of specialness to the human (as opposed to the animal or the plant).
