Review

"Many seekers are finding resonance in the infinite possibilities and ordinary simplicity that Adyashanti expresses." 
- SHIFT: At the Frontiers of Consiousness, Sept-Nov 2006

About the Author

Adyashanti is an American-born spiritual teacher devoted to serving the awakening of all beings. His teachings are an open invitation to stop, inquire, and recognize what is true and liberating at the core of all existence. His books include Emptiness Dancing, The End of Your World, True Meditation, The Way of Liberation, and Falling into Grace.

 

Asked to teach in 1996 by his Zen teacher of 14 years, Adyashanti offers teachings that are free of any tradition or ideology. “The Truth I point to is not confined within any religious point of view, belief system, or doctrine, but is open to all and found within all.” For more information, please visit adyashanti.org.


More About the Author

After 15 years of Zen practice and a series of ever-deepening realizations, this direct, loving and engaging modern teacher began to offer dharma talks, weekend programs and retreats in 1996. Known for his clarity, wisdom and rich humor he has a rapidly expanding base of students, many of whom have awakened to their true nature in his presence. His teachings have been compared to those of the early Zen masters, and the wisdom teachings of Advaita Vedanta, and speak deeply to all seekers of Truth.

Format: Paperback
I've been involved with some form of Buddhism for about 15 years. For most of that time I have considered myself to be a committed student of mindfulness practice in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hahn. I've read many, many books on spirtual practice and in particular on Buddhism, but I have never come across anything quite like this book. Adyashanti's words speak to me at a level which I have not otherwise experienced. For me his teachings are pure and direct - like you might hear about in stories about Zen masters of the past. Interestingly, I don't associate his teachings with any religion or spiritual tradition (nor does he), since they speak about Truth/Reality that exists independent of conceptual frameworks (i.e. a particular belief system). This is the most important book I have ever read. Strong words I know. For me it's true. But I also recognize that the value of the book's contents are a function of my personal experiences and where I am. So I also recognize not everyone may value it as much as me. Nonetheless, I highly recommend it as a source of deep and honest spiritual guidance.

Though I buy a lot of books through Amazon and have never entered a review before, just feel like I have to post one this time. Best dharma book I've ever read--and I've read dozens. I heard of the author because I saw an article in a magazine that inspired me, then ordered his books. If you're really serious about waking up, no matter what, I highly recommend this book.

A well chosen array of talks by Adyashanti, which anyone interested in non-dualistic spirituality will likely find compelling. Most valuable is Adyashanti's ability to move beyond explanations and walk the reader through "as-if" versions of awakening, leaving us with at least a clear echo of that experience, and an internalized feeling for what it's all about.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Adyashanti has a wonderful and compassionate resonance in his words and teachings, and for many of us, his experiences passed on through his stories somehow transform our way of thinking and experiencing this great journey we call life. This particular book has received high praises and many people have been moved by the words within.

I, however; was a bit disappointed by this book as I felt Adyashanit's message seemed to take a circuitous route at times and did not always drive the point home, despite a clear intention to do so at the beginning of each chapter. Some chapters in the book were excellent while others might leave one scratching his/her head. Though the writing is compassionate and personal, the message is often lost in the repeating themes and verbiage.

For anyone interested in learning more about Buddhism, I would recommend any of the following Authors: D.T, Suzuki, Alan Watts and Thich Nhat Hanh, Sylvia Boorstein or Pema Chodron. I find that the above authors make no claims, and their message rings true and uncluttered.

Here is an example from the book on page 85. The discussion is on consciousness which is our true being and repressing negative feelings.

"When you know you are consciousness, then there's no repression, and there's no grabbing hold. It's as if you are the sky. You neither push your clouds away, nor grasp them to keep them from leaving you. The sky is inherently completely unaffected, even if the storm comes and lightning cracks and all hell breaks loose. It doesn't matter as long as the sky remembers that it's sky.

Here's a guy who gets to the heart of the spiritual matter. His manner is simplicity itself and his wise-warmth is compelling. I recommend him to those among us whose egos feel solid and whose openness has not fully come to be. My sense is that this is a book for everyone.

Adyashanti is a true teacher. If you read this book with an open mind and an open heart, it has the power to set you free. More to the point is, you are already free and just don't realize it. Many happy discoveries to all that are willing to hear who they really are!

Adyashanti speaks from the heart. For some one who has trancended the notion of an individual self the book does impart a strong sense of his individual personality but I have read that most enlightened beings still make contact with others more or less through the forms of their previosly developed egos. It is a wonderful book and I suspect that Buddhist or even meditators from other traditions will find it to be very revealing.
