'Posthumous Pieces' is the favourite of many serious students of Wei Wu Wei's books, who say that it delivers his message in a concise and consistent way. In addition to addressing the nature of time, space, and the self, he also skewers illusions about mantras, karma, science, and death. The profound aphorisms he is known for are here in abundance.
