About Book “Nectar Of Sunyata"
This document is re-typed from a photocopy of Sunyata s original work on a manualtypewriter. His grammar and spelling are preserved; these give the flavor of the man;where the commas are is where he probably paused in his musings. He apparentlystarted to write an autobiography three different times; all three are included here. Thesequence of pages here is the same as in the original materials, though the paginationdoesn t make much sense. We note in italics where words are illegible, and also wheresome lines of text at the bottoms of pages were lost in photocopying.There is a version of these writings, edited by some of his friends, and published as Lifeand Sayings of a Rare Born Mystic. There is also a second book about Sunyata,Dancing With The Void.Sunyata often refers to himself as Wuji . Wu is Chinese for nothing ; ji is aSanskrit suffix which indicates respect.So here is his ——–foreword to MemoryHow did such a rambling contemplation happen to get itself bodied forth into the disease of wordiness? The mere expression in words seems to prove the validity of thecontention that Silence is the better and the real language of the unseen Reality, and thatassertiveness is a dis-ease of ego. We write to ourselves and we mostly talk toourselves even in an audience and with the most beloved. He who livingly knows needsno words.A redeeming feature in this timeless Memory seems to be its lightness, the levity, theplay with words and with thoughts which, in contemplation of the Viking s childconsciousness, bubbled up and overflowed into words. There is often the gay, carefreeawareness that words are falsifying, especially if we body them forth with labor andwith much trying. A spontaneous, natural overflow reveals more than doesacademically trained sentence and the cultured word.
