Publisher's Summary

More people are "waking up" spiritually, discovering a sense of identity beyond any ideas of a separate self. In the Dawning of Awakening, Adyashanti describes what he calls the virtual reality of everyday existence, and what happens when we begin to emerge from this dream into a much vaster world.

Helpful Brief Introduction to Adyashanti's Concept

This brief talk is a good introduction to the concept of awakening. Adyashanti explains spiritual experience in everyday language, so the listener doesn't need to be familiar with Buddhist or Zen terminology since it is not used in this talk. It is also free of self-help idealism. The listeners are not told that they can transform themselves into spiritual giants or attain magical powers. Most refreshing is Adyashanti discussion of how a seeker might understand an awakening that is not permanently life altering but is instead a momentary glimpse of a larger unity. It might last a day or a week. But Adyashanti says it is still valuable and even if the sense of spiritual awakening seems transitory -- and what in life isn't -- it still has value.

Thank you

Easy to listen and to follow. I was pleased that he mentioned that even those who not spiritual are having this awakening. It all resonated and has giving me some insight on the past year.

Great speech

Adyashanti's teaching is profound . By his teaching, I have a further understanding of awareness. I hope someday I experience awakening as he described.

Powerful description of Awakening

Insightful teaching about the awakening process. Adya, as usual, explains the unexplainable with clarity and understanding.
