Buddha's last sermon – in hell
Translated from German by Mark Foster

Every true seeker is a fearless and passionate warrior. She does not dread the fight, she thirsts for victory, and continually seeks her own liberation – the gerat defeat.

Only her master – the great defeat – is capable of shattering the true seeker’s and warrior’s far too tightly bound corset of acquired, and soon outdated, survival skills. The great defeat demands everything, the utmost and ultimate strength, courage, determination, cunning, pain, desire, passion, devotion, knowledge and hope. The grat defeat temporarily only offers the unending void, the complete annihilation. Only from this great and complete defeat does the true – not the romantic – seeker and warrior arise as a transformed and reborn being, as if born for the second time. This different being is grown up, sober; it questions and comprehends more deeply, it is a being which is calmer and more serious. Habitual familiarity with people and with life have been sacrificed or rather exchanged. Since it is not a joyless being – not at all – it lives differently with a new innocence. 

The book (Buddha’s last sermon – in hell) is concerned with the handing on of what has been called the ‚Buddha Mind‘. It is a provocative challenge to those seeking the Way. One could say it is a „grown up“ presentation of Hermann Hesse’s „Siddhartha“.

On a long walk in the Almora region of the Indian Himalayans, a woman truth-seeker, M., tiring, finally lies down in the grass and has a strange dream. In it, she continues to walk and comes across a ferry. The ferryman is the Buddha himself. In the conversation which develops between the two, he tells her how things were in the India of his time and how his message has come to be misunderstood and misinterpreted. In passing nods, too, in the direction of other religions by way of comparison. He tells her that the old way must be abandoned for a new way now in the almost inconceivably changed world we live in today and sees in her his successor. This is the message of the coming millennium: the old must be given up for a new message of liberation. Only then can the old Buddha die and the new begin to live.
