Solitude and Loneliness

A Buddhist View

Sarvananda

Charlie Chaplin observed, ā€˜Loneliness is the theme of everyone.ā€™ Although true, it is equally true that we all very skilfully, and often unconsciously, organize our lives in such a way as to avoid loneliness.

Drawing on a wide range of sources ā€“ the poets Dickinson and Hafiz, the painter Edward Hopper, the sage Milarepa, the lives of Helen Keller and Chris McCandless, and of course the Buddha ā€“ Sarvananda explores the themes of isolation, loneliness and solitude from a Buddhist perspective and examines how and why our relationship to ourselves can be a source of both suffering and liberation.

  1. Sue Anderson

    A lovely mix of personal reflection, literary quotes and humour. A comforting and inspiring read illustrating our shared suffering in loneliness and the liberation in finding the courage to turn towards it. Ultimately, it is about finding a balance between solitude and engaging in relationships with others.
