Publisher's Summary

What would happen if you were to allow everything to be exactly as it is? If you gave up the need for control, and instead embraced the whole of your experience in each moment that arose? In the 14 years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as a means to a goal they never reached. Ultimately, he realized that only when you let go of all techniques, even the concept of yourself as a meditator, will you open to the art of true meditation: dwelling in the natural state. True Meditation invites you to join the growing number of seekers who have been touched by the wisdom of Adyashanti to learn:

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.

Wonderful..Fresh Look at Meditation

Where does True Meditation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed this book. I struggle with meditation and now I know why..I am to caught up on what I think it should be like. This book takes a fresh look at how to do meditations.

What did you like best about this story?

He has a sense of humour.. while still getting to the point

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

Although I havnt I have recently purchased another of his books Spontaneous Awakening <br/>And can't wait to get into it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My reaction was...so thats what I have been doing wrong all this time!

Any additional comments?

I loved it, anyone struggling with meditation should purchase this book and try this approad to meditation!

Absolutely STUNNING

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.

Not Bad

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This book in theory I would recommend doing a chapter at a time

Has True Meditation put you off other books in this genre?

The Contents of the book is very heavy in places and very lacking regarding the source of meditation content. It was not very helpful as a starter for anyone who does meditation not much content or wisdom at all.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Adyashanti?

I would recommend the author. But the narrator at the end had a really annoying voice and got a bit on my nerves.

Did True Meditation inspire you to do anything?

Theory

Any additional comments?

NA
