Publisher's Summary

According to the Buddha, no one can attain basic sanity or enlightenment without practicing meditation. The teachings given here on the outlook and technique of meditation provide the foundation that every practitioner needs to awaken as the Buddha did. Trungpa teaches us to let go of the urge to make meditation serve our ambition; thus we can relax into openness. We are shown how the deliberate practice of mindfulness develops into contrived awareness, and we discover the world of insight that awareness reveals. We learn of a subtle psychological stage set that we carry with us everywhere and unwittingly use to structure all our experience - and we find that meditation gradually carries us beyond this and beyond ego altogether to the experience of unconditioned freedom.

Great book

Trungpa books are always amazing. The reader is very good but the way he pronounces 'Trungpa' or 'Rinpoche' is too hard.

You have to be fairly experienced

You have to be fairly experienced to grasp the concepts of this teaching, despite the fact it is aimed at students - however the students here are not new to the concept of meditation - it is excellent for those who want to go deeper, but may be lost on noobs.
