Publisher's Summary

The deceptively simple three-phase method presented here is a meditation practice that can be worked with for a lifetime. Larry Rosenberg looks to Zen, to Insight Meditation, and to the teachings of J. Krishnamurti to find three kinds of meditation that anyone can do and that complement each other in a wonderful way: (1) breath awareness, (2) breath as anchor, and (3) choiceless awareness. Having the three methods in one's repertoire gives one meditation resources for any life situation. In a time of stress, for example, one might use breath awareness exclusively. Or on an extended retreat, one might find choiceless awareness more appropriate. The three-step method has been taught to Larry's students at the Cambridge Meditation Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for many years. After teaching the three-step method, Larry goes on to show how to bring the awareness gained in meditation to the world off the cushion, into relationships and into all areas of daily life.

    "Great content, poor reading"

    I love Rosenberg, but the reader for this book was poorly chosen. He struggles and mispronounces names and words that are common and well known to anyone familiar with Buddhist meditation. The book is good, but the audible edition is not a great experience.

    "may be the best all around book for understanding "

    I have heard this book 3 times now. Larry is a wonderful author who is gentle, direct, and grounded. His insight is easily understandable. what I love about this book is that it is an all encompassing book for anyone who is searching for understanding the dharma. if you are interested in figuring out Buddhism, this is the first book I would recommend. the teacher is a Theravada based Buddhist, and this is a nice and simple door to get a basic taste of Therevada. understanding the difference between Therevada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana schools of Buddhism was something I was very confused about when I first started, and understanding meditation was never really clear because I was bouncing through different authors from different cultures. this is the clearest, most easy to understand directions for how to practice, and it always returns me to the ground of the present when I listen to it, as sometimes we get caught up in the idea of awakening in the future. So if you know nothing about Buddhism, or you are an advanced yogi, this is a must read period.
    My only problem was the narrator has no idea what the Sanskrit or Pali words are. He pronounces vipassana like "Vip-in-as-sauna" it's just silly.
