Book Description

The Scripture of the Golden Eternity is a book of 66 prose poems written by American 'beat generation' novelist and poet Jack Kerouac. The book is Kerouac’s sutra on Buddhist philosophy, in which he describes a "Golden Eternity" that is paradoxically everything and nothing; written in 1956 the poems deal mainly with the nature of consciousness and the impermanence of existence.
