I will highly recommend this title. Shinzen Young is amazing. He has deep knowledge of multiple subjects, and amazing voice. If you are interested in the path of meditation and enlightenment, please buy this audio-book. I will suggest listenting it at least twice, so you can appreciate the depth of this audio-book. I wish he had more audio-books on this subject.
shinzens voice is a little... American, but otherwise fantastic. contains excellent guided meditation, and is the most intelligent, rational introduction to the topic and discipline I know of.
I'm going to listen to it again. I really think it is a great book for everybody, especially those getting into meditation.
I can say without a doubt that this is the most import book I've read (listened to).
I enjoy the entire book.
I enjoy audio books and blogging.
Practical explanations for meditation and enlightenment are abundant.
I liked the use of science and math to explain enlightenment.
The narrator's voice conveyed understanding of the topic and concern for the reader.
The declaration of enlightenment.
At this point in my career this is the best explanation of enlightenment. A beautiful work that belongs in my library.
Seriously, if you are from a western culture you will benefit greatly from Shinzen's talks. He speaks directly and does not waste your time with psudo-mystical B.S. Many of your question about meditation will be answered and you will be provided with practical tools and actionable advice. I've listened to this book twice now. It is very dense and you will want to take notes or bookmark sections to revisit many times. Also Shinzen has a good sense of humor and is very warm and genuine which helps a great deal.
Straight talk... thank you Shinzen!
Yes but it is far too long
Easily worth three credits but only costs one!
Demystifies the practice and purpose of meditation in a soothing and comfortable way.
The cross cultural insights into how meditation has been lost to the Christian religion, sadly.
.This is an incredible resource.
finally. clear. intelligent. practical. real. experienced
YES. wish I could do just that.
