True Meditation: Discover the Freedom of Pure Awareness

Front Cover, Oct 29, 2010 - Dharma (Buddhism) - 93 pages
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 fourteen years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as an end instead of a means to an end. What he ultimately realized was that only when you let go of all technique seven 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 Two guided meditations on CD 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.

What a load of crap! The author makes bold assertions with no basis and I'm sure that people just eat it up. This was a waste of time and yet another failed example of Eastern religion or philosophy. Read full review

About the author (2010)

Adyashanti began teaching in 1996 after a series of transformative spiritual awakenings, at the request of his Zen teacher of 14 years. Today, his retreats are so popular that would-be attendees must win a lottery held only twice a year. Adya's teachings have been compared to some of the early Ch'an (Zen) masters of China as well as teachers of Advaita Vedanta in India. His books include True Meditation (Sounds True, 2006) and Emptiness Dancing (Sounds True, 2006). For more information, please visit
