One of the best books I ever read on this often difficult to grasp this abstract notion Brilliant I read a review where someone described this as A pound of magic mushrooms disguised as textThey were not wrong This s THE book for the modern secular dharma practitioner to practically modify their perceptions of reality and liberate their mind Unlike many other books which merely talk about emptiness or liberation this book provides many practices with detailed All For You: Halfway There / Buckhorn Ever After / The One You Want / One Perfect Night instructions on what to do to realize emptiness sunyata for yourself Leaving no stone unturned Rob Burbea addresses all the nuances of contemplative practice and the many subtle traps along the way Thiss for the serious student of the path A pound of magic mushrooms disguised as textI m reminded of Sir Francis Bacon s uip Some books are to be tasted others to be swallowed and some few to be chewed and digested Burbea s work here Any Man Of Mine is beyond even that last category thiss a book that must be chewed and digested and Annalee And The Lawman in the process of this digestion one discovers to their amazement that the book was digesting them methodically demolishing one s sense of self and world It was readingtself a A must for serious meditation practitionersI liked the step by step unfolding of the simple message of freedom taught by Buddha made complicated and unreachable by egos against egos Thank you This The Apollonides Mistress Scandal is an exhaustivensight meditation manual and set of philosophical reflectionsexercisesTo explain the conventional meaning of sunyata emptiness to someone s not so hard But to understand emptiness and begin to understand how t affects our entire experience of phenomena Anything For His Son is another Burbea starts at the beginning and works his way through phenomena until theres literally nothing left The book assumes the reader has some level of samadhiThis book could be read Anticipation in order front to back but the proper place would be on the side of the cushion to use as reference for practice This book gave me a lot of gifts but the primary ones the ability to be creative and experimental as one learns to drop the script The amount of logic used n this book s exhausting But t s okay between the details and sheer length of t all s the guidepostinsight sany realization understanding or way of seeing things that brings to any degree a dissolution of or a decrease Annie and the Outlaw in dukkhaIf you re ready to give up stress to give up the stories you tell about your Life your self and especiallyf you re ready to give up the ANNIE AND THE PRINCE idea of What It All Means so you can sort out What It All Means then read this bookRecommended for daily sitters people who dabblen non dual reasoning Harvat kirjat ovat avanneet uusia puolia dharmasta ja meditatiivisesta harjoittamisesta kuten t m Kirja ankkuroituu suoraa buddhalaisen tyhjyysfilosofian Nagarjunasta l htev n Madhyamaka perinteeseen ja esitetty l hestymistapa ja harjoitteet juurrutetaan t m n perinteen edustajien ajatuksiin Kirjassa esitetyt tulkinnat ja harjoitteet tuntuvat n The Single Dad's Redemption in olevan sek harmoniassa perinteen kanssa ett t ysin ymm rrett vi ja soveltamiskelpoisia modernillehmiselle Teos avasi hyvin paljon ymm rryst buddhalaisuuteen liittyvist filosofisista teemoista jotka ovat aiemmin j neet melko kysymysmerkeiksi Teoria ja k yt nt kulkivat l pi kirjan k si k dess ja opus sis lsi paljon harjoituksia jotka jo lyhyell pohtimisella ja kokeilemisella tuntuivat tuovan.
