    One thought on “Dharmapummit”

    1. That's a completely nostalgic four stars of course. Has there been a writer whose reputation has plummeted quite so much between the 70s and now as jolly Jack and his tales of merry misogynism? But like Bob Dylan saysWhile riding on a train goin’ westI fell asleep for to take my restI dreamed a dream that made me sadConcerning myself and the first few friends I hadWith half-damp eyes I stared to the roomWhere my friends and I spent many an afternoonWhere we together weathered many a stormLaugh [...]

    2. This was really a pleasant surprise. After making my way through "On the Road" and a few other things by Kerouac, I had come to the conclusion that the dude is a hack, and that the other Beats were really on some way better shit. I just couldn't feel that "rambling" ass style that he writes in, even though I acknowledge that it was a conscious decision of his to write that way. I get it -- he writes the way he travels, making quick decisions and trying to be spontaneous and spiritual. But to me [...]

    3. "Yeah man, you know to me a mountain is a Buddha. Think of the patience, hundreds of thousands of years just sitting there bein perfectly perfectly silent and like praying for all living creaturs in that silence and just wwaiting for us to stop all our frettin and foolin."- Jack Kerouac, The Dharma BumsI recently started going to a weekly Kadampa Buddhism and meditation class at a local Unitarian church with a friend of mine. I'm far too skeptical to jump into or out of religions easily, but I h [...]

    4. Enfant terrible, a unique individual, jazz lover and a poet; this book, was written when Jack Kerouac was thirty-six years old. He was at the forefront of the Beat Generation in California in the fifties, through to his death in 1969, at the age of forty-seven.I kept on telling myself this is not my kind of book and I’m not enjoying myself but who was I trying to kid. Yes, it’s “raw in thought” but spirituality flows throughout, even though the catholic faith is viewed through the eyes o [...]

    5. Kerouac can spin an enjoyable yarn, as long as you don't mind rambling along with him on directionless paths with no real goal in mind but to spin that yarn. In The Dharma Bums he takes the reader from city-drop-outs to mountain solitude, the mind-fuck excitement and shit of civilization to the glorious simplicity and utter loneliness of a retreat back to nature.Even though he cheats the reader with some quick-fix adverbs in place of the proper description owed his audience, Kerouac still deserv [...]

    7. Took some time to get used Kerouac's style but once you do it is an excellent read. One of my favorites, simply a joy to read and reread. My favorite Kerouac. Re-read four years later and its still one of my favorite Kerouacs.

    8. ‎آیا ما فرشتگان مطرودی نیستیم که نمی‌خواستیم باور کنیم که هیچ یعنی هیچ، و آنگاه به دنیا آمدیم که آنهایی را که دوست‌شان داریم، و دوستان عزیزمان را، یکی یکی از دست بدهیم و آخرش هم زندگی خودمان را، تا بهمان ثابت شود که هیچ یعنی هیچ؟‎از متن کتاب

    9. So I only just started this, but just look:"And who am I?""I dunno, maybe you're Goat.""Goat?""Maybe you're Mudface.""Who's Mudface?""Mudface is the mud in your goatface. What would you say if someone was asked the question 'Does a dog have a Buddha nature?' and said 'Woof!'"Fortunately Kerouac's Proxytagonist du jour acknowledges this as "silly Zen Buddhism", but even so, the koan-lobber is a character being presented as enlightened. Of course, I'm going to see where this is going, but if I hav [...]

    10. Dharma Bums is for the hiker/outdoorsman, the aspiring buddhist sage, and the lover of beautifully woven syntax. Ray thumbs his way across the continental U.S. two, almost three times. In his travels, he meets hobos, family, friends, yabyum partners, Zen Lunatics but mostly he discovers a love for the essence of nature and the power of it's awesomeness. Ray overcomes some personal demons with the help and guidance of Japhy Ryder. Eventually, he decides to take a post as a fire watcher on top of [...]

    11. فکر می کردم این کتاب می تواند آن چیزی باشد که لازم داشتم. کتابی از جنسی دیگر و متفاوت. شاید هم باشد. اما قطعاً این کتابی که به فارسی توسط فرید قدمی ترجمه شده آن نبود که می خواستم.مشکل اصلی من، همینطور که مشخص است، با ترجمه این کتاب است. مشکلی که وقتی بزرگتر می شود که هجده هزارتومن [...]

I got my copy in Chicago for a dollarMy friends frienzied onward toward the trainI had the whole thing read by Indianaand I had been forever changed.I started, for some time, to weepabout the beauty in a lonely lifestumbling back to his shade tree, Jack founda magic trap door in his mind.The nature, she beckons, relententlesslydewy sweaters on sweet, green leavestaste like tripping the child right out of meto dance mercilessly among the marching treespush, pull, shove, stop step the hell aroundl [...]

    13. consistently one of my favorite reads. i've bought this book three times now and i still haven't been able to hold on to it. the kerouac estate will forever be the recipient of my hard earned dough. i have to say, it's one of my top ten. not for its far-reaching insights, kerouac's intimate style, or it's lively presentation of a man who was the embodiment, precursor, exemplification, and antecedent to all those to follow dubbed 'heads' or less acurately 'hippies,' but for it's depiction of a ma [...]

    14. Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums: "Hopping a freight out of Los Angeles at high noon one day in late September 1955 I got on a gondola and lay down with my duffel bag under my head and my knees crossed and contemplated the clouds as we rolled north to Santa Barbara."Kerouac gives us the rambling masterpiece of a sentence with no punctuation and yet chock-full of description and character. The poverty/liberty of "hopping a freight", the locale firmly rooted in hippy California (Los Angeles, Santa Ba [...]

    15. Kerouac is innocent and rowdy and loco, unjaded and earnest, a real goodfellow. I tried reading On the Road as a high schooler and was unimpressed, I was too serious and uptight. I lacked experience. This time around I get the Zen stuff, yo, I was put off at first by his attempts at telling what is impossible to tell, but he reveals himself, he risks ridicule to show how sincere he feels, and how arrogant too, like when Rosie dies and he thinks if only she had listened to him, if only she knew w [...]

    16. Anyone who knows me knows that for the longest time, I considered the Beat poets/writers my mortal enemies. I used to claim that the beat generation represented everything I hated in literature, yet I refused to read full works of any prominent beat writers.I gotta admit, "On the Road" has got to be one of the worst novels I have ever read in my life; which is a valid statement to make, considering that the prominence of the novel was never due to flawless prose or any technical aspect that is c [...]

    17. So this is what started the "backpack revolution". Great. Except it was less backpacking, more Buddhism preaching. The main character (Ray?) comes across as a patronizing nutcase with his combination of drunken bumhood, Christianity, and Buddhism. So he is a buddhist - correction: he thinks he is Buddha - and he also thinks he is a "crazy saint". He believes he can perform miracles, namely cure his mother of allergies, but then decides he won't perform miracles anymore because that will make him [...]

    18. کتابی خیلی دوست داشتنی. الان که تموم شده و بهش فکر می‌کنم، دلم تنگ می‌شه براش. علاوه بر خوب بودنش، توی موقعیت‌های خیلی خوبی هم خوندمش و خریدنش هم مربوط به یک روز خیلی هیجان‌انگیز بود. اما خود کتاب چرا خوبه؟ ماجراش، که ماجرای سفرهای کرواکه. مثل رمان در راه. اما این بار کرواک عا [...]

    19. The cruellest thing you can do to Kerouac is reread him at thirty-eight. From The Buddha of Suburbia by Hanif KureishiSpotting the problematic - some people assume it's what you're meant to do with art now. Paraphrase from a comment by Wastrel in a recent discussion.I chose this because, in my tsundoku-reading, I'd recently read 3 short books on Buddhism, and it fit right in. Also, sort of like All Time Popular Reviewer Karen and the seasonal avatars. Summer! Time for books set in hot places! [...]

    20. So many people I trust and respect love Jack Kerouac. They consistently praise his work to me, recommend books that I should read and even buy me his books, hoping I'll love him like they do, but try as I might I still haven't found what they find in Kerouac's work.But I do try. Every couple of years I crack out another one of his books that I've started and never finished (which is all but The Dharma Bums and Mexico City Blues), and start reading it again. I rarely get very far. I did get throu [...]

    21. I first read The Dharma Bums in about 1969. It was our instructional manual on "how to be a hippie." The long, late-night drug and alcohol fueled parties, the disdain for money and suburbia and middle class life, the simple foods and hanging out on the floor. Hiking in the woods, free love, earth mothers and footloose uncommitted men. As soon as my first husband and I reached San Francisco after driving and camping our way across America from Michigan, we climbed up to Mount Tamalpais and got hi [...]

    22. Don't read Kerouac when you're too young. Read him as you join that long death march called steady employment. Then look back. Look back to all the people you knew, those people who went here and there, those people who knew odd patches of philosophy and poetry. They fucked. They doped and boozed in desperate self medication. Look back at yourself.Jack travels here and there. He knows people with Odd Knowledge. They have plumbed the breadth and depth of human existence. They get laid in the era [...]

    23. Dharma Bums is set in the late fifties, in Jack Kerouac's life shortly after the events chronicled in On the Road. It focuses on his relationship with poet Gary Snyder and his exposure to Snyder's love of the outdoors and study of Buddhism. I know that some have criticized Kerouac's treatment of Buddhism, but I think those purists have missed the point, what I found compelling was the effect of Buddhism on the lives and lifestyles of the Beat poets and writers.Reading this 50 years after publica [...]

    24. "Then I added 'Blah,' with a little grin, because I knew that shack and that mountain would understand what that meant, and turned and went on down the trail back to this world."

    25. Love this book. When I first read it, I read it for the sex and the late night bull sessions had not had sex, was still living at home and had no idea who Japhy Ryder (Gary Snyder) was. REad it more recently--now I've had sex and a million late night bull sessions, so that wasn't the thrill it had been at 16. Now I find what I admire the most is Japhy Ryder, and especially, the liveliness of Kerouac's nature writing. I've done a lot of hiking and backpacking, and my god Kerouac's sense of nature [...]

    26. I was charmed and uplifted by this reflective, poetic vision of a life of rambling in California and the Pacific Northwest, a thinly veiled fictional portrayal of Kerouac’s friendship with poet Gary Snyder in the 50’s. While “On the Road” felt like a portrait of America and the key characters often felt a bit lost and self-centered, here the action is more attuned to connections with nature and an exultant exploration of Buddhist outlooks. Like the other book it reads more like a memoir [...]

    27. I had read an article, a few weeks ago in the Tampa Tribune, about the Kerouac house in St. Petersburg, Florida being up for sale. It talked about how he had died in 1969 at the age of 47. His last drink was consumed at the Flamingo Sports Bar, later he was rushed to the hospital where he died of cirrhosis. The article stated that he was overweight and not doing well at the time of his death and did not produce much, from a writing standpoint, while he lived there. They mentioned the Dharma Bums [...]

    28. My introduction to Kerouac came in college, when my New York City internship offered lots of reading time via hours spent riding public transportation. "On the Road" was my book of choice during the transitional phase when spring break in Florida drove home the sad reality that I need greenery far too much to ever live happily in in The Big Apple. Such an unwelcome intrusion of honest self-assessment crushed my plans of making a beeline for the city immediately after graduation, but at least I h [...]
