The philosophy and contemplative practices of the Mahayana are within this book. The philosophy of no-self, of mind only, and many different perspectives on emptiness are presented here. This is the real deal.
Without the right view, our insights in meditation will also be mistaken. The information in this book helps us to navigate our different insights and experiences while practicing meditation and provides contemplations to help you progress further. If you want to understand the philosophy and logic of the different schools, that is all presented here in a clear, and understandable way that also doesn't hold back in its philosophical rigor and depth.
I can't recommend this book enough. I spent a year as a temporary monk and by studying this book as well as Andy Karrs "Contemplating Reality" I finally understood many things I had been struggling to understand in Buddhism and my own practice.
I listen to this book on audible now whiled ping some routine things so that I can keep the dharma fresh in my mind. I listen to it at the gym, while driving, or cleaning. It is amazing to be able to hear such amazing teachings during my daily life. This in depth level of Dharma teaching is hard to find in books as most are designed only for shamatha and breathing meditation. Shamatha is good, but this will open you up to much more if you have been stuck in your shamatha practice and feeling like you aren't getting anywhere.
