How to make the "effortless effort" that will vivify the present moment
Meditative self-inquiry and "The Way of Subtraction": how to ask a spiritually powerful question, and determine the real answer
Three guided meditations intended to reveal what Adyashanti calls "your home as awareness itself""We've been taught that awakening is difficult," explains Adyashanti, "that to wake up from the illusion of separation takes years. But all it really takes is a willingness to look into the depths of your experience here and now." True Meditation gives you the opportunity to reclaim the original purpose of meditation, as a gateway to "the objectless freedom of being".

Very Nice, Different and Refreshing
In reading other reader comments I almost didn't buy this, so now I am writing a review to aid those who might make the mistake of not getting this. Other sites reviewers rated this very highly, but another reviewer here said it was not as described and no mediation techiniques were offered. I disagree.
I think that reader may have been looking for a more guided form of meditation technique. This author teaches you to let go of trying to control your meditative practice and experience it on a more organic level. It is very effective if you are looking to examine deep meditation with an emphasis on spirtual awakening rather than guided meditation for relaxation or to achieve other goals. Very very nice, relaxing and easy to understand.

Have you listened to any of Adyashanti’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Adiyashanti is such a wonderfully gifted and amazingly knowledgeable teacher of enlightenment and self enquiry. My mind has read/listened to hundreds of books on enlightenment, this is by far the best. Absolute gem that will speed up your journey to finding your true self hundred fold. Thank you Adiyashanti.

Brilliant intro to meditation
This is a clear and vivid audiobook on meditation. It has been hugely beneficial on my meditation journey and I love to go back to the guided meditations every now and again, for deeper clarity and understanding.
