    In this simple, beautifully written book, David Michie opens the door to the core teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. With wry, self-deprecating humour, he shows us how he began to incorporate Buddhist practices into his daily life. He explains how he came to understand the difference between the temporary pleasures of ordinary life, and the profound sense of well-being and heart-felt serenity that comes from connecting with our inner nature.

    In the words of the Buddha, the four foundations of mindfulness (the four sadhipatthanas) are " the direct path for the purification of beings, for the surmounting of sorrow and lamentation, for the disapperance of dukkha (suffering) and discontent, for the acquiring of the true method, for the rea;ization of Nibbahna." Within the quinitessential discourse called the Satipatthana Sutta, we find the Buddha's seminal teachings on the practice of meditation.

    Would you listen to Abiding in Mindfulness, Vol. 3 again? Why?

    I would listen again. Too much to absorb in one listen.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Abiding in Mindfulness, Vol. 3?

    Joseph presented complex philosophical thought in a very practical way. Numerous examples of how to apply to everyday life.
