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.

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.
