'Kerouac’s sutra, his own renderings on Buddhist philosophy. The work is 66 prose poems in which he describes a "Golden Eternity”, exploring the paradox of this idea. The poems or "meditations" deal mainly with the nature of consciousness and the impermanence of existence. This is laced with the inescapable influence of Catholicism on his life.'
