"Science and spirituality merge in this book"
I would like to congratulate the author of this fascinating book on spirituality, and how he blends this with science. This has to be a read for anyone interested in getting a deeper insight into the nature of matter, consciousness and the source of all things. The book explains complex terms such as impermanence in a simple yet profound way. This is without doubt a book with the potential to transform the way we perceive our selves and the world we live in.
"Awesome blend of Buddhism and Science!"
Shinzen Young presents a comprehensive survey of the different flavours of Buddhism and blends his knowledge of scientific matters in a very persuasive and pallatable way. His analogies are very good and help understand a potentially complex subject. I particularly liked his space and time descritpions using the analogy of microscope and oscilloscope, something every scienctist and student of science can relate to on a practical level. A very high quality and rewarding audio book indeed. What's more, it's never been done before with such expertise and unlikely to be matched.
Note to general listener: there are many blank segments as part of the meditation exercises - these are intentional!
"A really beautiful introduction to mindfulness"
I really enjoyed this book, the only problem being it ended. I enjoyed the timber of the voice, the joy and humour of the speaker as difficult concepts were explored in simple terms. Thank you
