Publisher's Summary

Do you practise meditation because you want to feel good? Or to help you relax and be "happy"? Then frankly, according to Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, you are far better off having a full-body massage than trying to practise the Dharma. Genuine spiritual practice, not least the Ngndro preliminaries, will not bring the kind of comfort and ease most worldly people crave. Quite the opposite, in fact. But if your ultimate goal is enlightenment, Ngndro practice is a must, and Not for Happiness your perfect guide, as it contains everything an aspiring practitioner needs to get started, including advice about: developing "renunciation mind" discipline, meditation, and wisdom using your imagination in visualization practice why you need a guru.

Expected more after first book

I was having higher hopes on more practice details, especially after the excellent what makes you not a Buddhist.

I expected meditation guidance and instructions on the Buddhist steps, but this was so light weight, as I was hoping getting some teaching. Shame
