    The Buddha said many times that just as the great oceans have but one taste, so do all the true teachings of the dharma: the taste of freedom. Jack Kornfield's The Roots of Buddhist Psychology is an invitation to drink deeply of these teachings; to taste the wisdom that flows from the heart of Buddhism's most useful ideas on the interior life and what brings awakening, freedom, and happiness. Jack Kornfield opens this eternal view of the mind for all listeners in this collection.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone I know. It is filled with wisdom, insight and compassion teachings. It is probably the best book I have read on Buddhism, and the best part is that it is NOT about Buddhi"sm" . Kornfield says in one of the chapters, "If you are here to be a Buddhist, to wear just another costume, then stop. These teachings will only show you that you too, can become a Buddha."
    His insight and teachings is so inspiring, so wise, but also so simple, that anybody who wants to achieve true happiness and liberation will take a out of this book. It has expanded my horizon, inspired me to accept myself and everything around me the way they are, opened my heart to be more compassionate to every living being. If you are interested in this psychology, read this book.
    I wish to meet Jack Kornfield in person someday.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had to listen to it in a lot of different sessions. It is simply too long to get away with listening to it in one sitting, besides, between every teaching, you need some time let it really sink in.
