The book that got me started on taking a flyer at meditation. :smile:

A different style, it turns out, suits me better, but I'm very grateful for that book.

i read most of this book years ago. i got to the part where he says you have to be a buddhist, call yourself a buddhist, just commit to it. which is very different from what other teachers, such as the dalai lama, say that you can practice buddhism without "being" a buddhist. i don't necessarily like labeling myself so i stopped reading the book at that part :lol:

but it has great insight and is a worthy read. if you can get around the parts you don't agree with ;)

I read the book Tibetan book of the dead, great book. Hard to read at first with the different chants and prayers but well worth it if you stick with it.
