Description

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.

$2.00!!!

I found great value in this audiobook. It presents some very unique perspectives and explanations that really helped me wrap my head around some concepts and expectations in regards to meditation.
I wouldn't recommend this as a starter book for the very beginner, but very good for anyone beyond the basics of Buddhism.
You really can't go wrong for $2.00.

Difficult to understand in content. Narrator was perfect.

I'm new in learning about Buddhism so this was probably way over my head. Also didn't know about Trungpa's reputation so it was a shock at first but it is kinda refreshing. Narrator was spot on in reflecting his reputation.

Generally good information on meditation.

For the most part, I liked the book. It has some good information regarding getting started and continuing meditation. Some of what to expect and how to grow your practice.
My only real complaint is the language. I don't think the story was helped any by using "fucked and fucked up" so many times. I know these descriptions can be useful at times, but I don't think they helped here. Maybe he was going for a young audience. I hope that is not needed to appeal to a young audience. Oh, and my "favorite" word was "fuckedupedness" .

Trungpa Rinchope is brutally honest in truth!

Brilliant, honest and mesmerizing. Elfer's narration captures the spirit. Go Shambhala! Mudita fellow Beings! Meditate

Very Informative

A lot of good explanations of both what to expect on the path of Buddhism, and of key concepts. Also clarification of quotes from great masters, including Buddha. Plenty of practical guidance too.

it wasn't for me

it was hard to follow, the teacher seemed to just run in circles with the explanations. I can't speak for others but this wasn't a message I could fully get behind

Worth many listens

Adding it to the rotations of Spiritual Materialism and Smile at Fear. Worth listening to.

Not the best one by Trungpa.

I really like Trungpa’s teachings, but this book is a bit messy and unclear. The essence is there, but it could’ve used a bit more editing and coherence.

Didn’t like too much the Q&A session at the end of each part. It was specially annoying the whole dynamic of mentioning the whole “Trungpa Rimpoche” before each one of his responses.

Trungpa’s teachings are not very clear here. There are better books out there.
