"I don't know what to say."
So professional. Extremely relevant.
The insight on adult and children's perspectives is worth the price of admission, alone.
The detailed accounts of the spiritual retreats is also helpful for mediating on purpose beyond observing awareness.
You are gonna get tools for myriad of psychological constructs.
If you are considering picking this up. Do it. What's fifteen dollars, anyways?
filled with reverence and love. thank you Jack for these teachings I really enjoyed this book
"Practice is the Key!"
Bring home the Dharma and share it with the world. Thanks for another beautiful teaching.
"Perfection. Sheer audible/literary Perfection."
The content of this book will change the life of anyone who really hears it, who truly "reads" it.
The content of this book is only matched with the glorious sound of its main narrator: Edoardo Ballerini. Undoubtedly the most profound book I've ever come across, & certainly the most influential, 2nd only to the Holy Bible, from which I believe. However, the Dharma, as you'll learn, can be lived, & breathed, & practiced in all of us, through all of us. Upon completing this work, I immediately began listening to it again.
Simply beautiful. What are you holding on to?
Beautiful insightful book, no matter your spiritual path. I will definitely relisten to this book.
"Learn about 2,500 years of collected Wisdom"
History and Tradition of the various paths towards Enlightenment/Nirvana. The author's specialty is teaching to Americans without the religion parts Buddhism.
"Strong Sense Of "I""
The book was a lot of self promotion on the part of the author. He has a strong sense of "I". Amusing that a book on Buddhist dharma has so many sentences that start with the word "I". For serious students, or those that wish to become serious students, of Buddha Dharma this is not the book for them.
"Worth Your Time!"
Enjoyed this book a great deal. As usual Jack's way of examining and explaining the 'middle way' is easy to understand and digest. An interesting perspective of many years practice. Would suggest this to anyone interested in words of honest lived wisdom.
This book helped me understand my goals more completely. I've listened to it twice and each time was unique and thought provoking.
The reader is hands down the best out there. His voice is calm and reassuring. Filled with emotion. Compassionate and understanding.
I loved the book and will treasure it always for helping me along my path.
"Do something and sit there!"
Other reviews explain that this a compilation of previous essays. A fact I missed if it was in the introduction. That explains a lot about the 'flow' the book. Putting that aside the book gives a mixture of biography and analysis with some hints about practice. I liked the narrator's voice, it was calming and soothing. It made me realize that there was a wealth of variety in Buddhist practice and described the goals of Buddhist practice.
