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.

Exactly what was needed

Truly explains all the intricacies of "The Path" and Ngondro practice. I found it to be truly useful and plan to listen to it many, many, times. I also feel like it really puts it all together, although I now realize I must also buy the book itself as well, as the book has illustrations.
