    Thousands of years prove it, and Western science backs it: Meditation sharpens focus. Meditation lowers blood pressure, relieves chronic pain, reduces stress. Meditation helps us experience greater calm. Meditation connects us to our inner-most feelings and challenges our habits of self-judgment. Meditation helps protect the brain against aging and improves our capacity for learning new things. Meditation opens the door to real and accessible happiness. There is no better person to show a beginner how to harness the power of meditation than Sharon Salzberg....

    If you could sum up Real Happiness in three words, what would they be?

    Compassionate, simple and practical.


    What other book might you compare Real Happiness to and why?

    I can't think of anyone as this one.


    What about Sharon Salzbergā€™s performance did you like?

    Yes. Her voice is very calm. It's nice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Meditate and start being happy


    Any additional comments?

    I really recommend it. I have hear and read a lot of different approachs to meditation, but no one has been as simple, compassionate and practica as this one. It is amazing for someone that wants to start meditating or even to improve your actual meditation practice. The only thing I would suggest to audible.com is that they make the authors add a index with the chapters and sub-chapters and the minutes and seconds in which you can find it. It would make it easier to get back to a especific theme.

    Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.
