Sintesi dell'editore

For those who are seeking a path of simplicity, not bound by the trappings of spiritual practice, Adyashanti brings a fresh and humble approach to Zen wisdom. "Don't think that awakening is the end," teaches Adyashanti. "Awakening is the end of seeking, the end of the seeker, but it is the beginning of a life lived from your true nature."

I agree MIND BLOWING

This guy is amazing. I have both of his speeches that are available here, and recommend them both VERY VERY VERY highly. His views on being awake are actually liberating (no joke). He teaches that being AWAKE is really not hard, and that in his opinion there are a lot more AWAKE people than you realize ... MAYBE EVEN YOU.
You can hear his authentic-ness in his voice. Very easy too listen too. He leads you through a couple guided meditations. This is basically the teaching he gave at a retreat. I would love to meet this guy!!!

Satsang w/ Adyashanti

This is the best fromat I have listened to of the teachings of this emerging teacher of enlightenment. There are only the teachings, dialogues have been omitted. Recommended for would-be students and veterans alike.

Great for Awakened Minds

If you are wondering what life will be like once you've experienced awakening...this is very helpful. Even if you haven't had the experience; listening to Adya is very helpful--a good reminder to just be as you are; as you always have been.

Great read on enlightenment

Adyashanti has a very approachable style and he speaks from an awakened place, so listening to him is listening to awakening. If you are on the path, you will love this! Highly recommended.

Incredibly Valuable To Me

I once saw a video of Adyashanti and did not enjoy his style. But an audio talk of his came to me as a gift, and I loved it, and so downloaded this book. Maybe I just wasn't ready for his teachings when I saw the video, or maybe his style is different in this book, but in any case, I totally LOVE this book.

I fully agree with the enthusiastic reviews that preceded this one, and can also understand the negative reviews....this book is not for everyone. But I would say that anyone who has been studying and resonating with Eckhart Tolle's teachings, or Gangaji's, would probably find this interesting at minimum, and possibly life-changing, as it has been for me. Each time I listen to it, I am struck by the power of things that I heard previously but suddenly see in a new way. I especially love the way Adyashanti speaks about the experience of living in the enlightened state, and the accessibility of that state to us all. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

So familiar and so natural

Spirituality doesn't have to be hard work. Thank you Adyashanti.

It's Alright

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes since I listened while driving - otherwise I think some parts were good, others worthless

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Still the same; not too much life altering information

Did Spontaneous Awakening inspire you to do anything?

Not really

Any additional comments?

The thing is this - author is really telling us stuff we already know and there is absolutley no life changing information. He is selling live talks done previously at a retreat that he has already "put on." My impression is that he is giving spritual advice based on what he has learned from spiritual teachers - but at the same time telling the audience not to seek too much spiritual advice. My impression is that he is a bit narcissistic and full of crap. FYI: An hour of this audio book is meditation, which is a silent waste of time and money.

Stream of consciousness baloney

You will not spontaneously awake by listening to this book. There are some great inspirational books and audio-books out there that one can read to develop a path to spiritual awakening and this is not one of them. Adyashanti speaks a lot in ellipses, where it would seem you have to know what he is actually thinking, not saying, to understand what he is getting at. If I were to summarize this book in one sentence it would be: "You may or may not spontaneously awaken if one day you happen to truly understand that there is no you, your thoughts are not real, and you are not special."

Deeply Disappointing

I am grateful many people benefit from this. For me personally he teachings are so full of internal contradictions that they become irrelevant. It strikes me as a Buddhist version of the California-style of 'hang-loose' Christianity. I find much more value in reading, or listening to, the Dhammapada. I'm glad I listened, but won't be coming back for more.

Great read

I found this book really interesting and very well presented. I really liked the way that just when the subject matter was getting a little dry, some hummer would put in to lighten the mood - great book which I will listen to again.

Wow!

The most “real” spiritual book I have listened to so far. Made me feel human again in all of my human imperfections. Best description of what is the ultimate meditative state as well as the objective. I am certain J. Kabt-Zin would highly approve :-) made me feel human again. Never felt so ok to not know anything and to be totally confused!! Thank you!!! Excited to listen to the rest of your books!!! Best part was “quit looking for something cause there ain’t nothing to find” love, love, love it! Can say so much more at the same time enjoying the silence in my life again :-)))))

Very good, nonjudgemental book

Adyashanti is the only person I've listened to that doesn't fat shame other religions/faiths. It is so refreshing to listen to someone who has found his own path and who sees the value that the different religions have without pinning his flag to any of them.

For anyone who is a true seeker or for those who are just interested this is a good book.

An encapsulation of Adya's teaching.

It gets straight to the point, covering profound contemplations in Adya's conversational yet lyrical voice, and a nice surprise in store at the end.

Life Changing

Any time I'm struggling with my mind.. whether it be anxiety, getting to sleep, being too focussed on the past and future rather than the present, I listen to this. It totally grounds me. It is truly liberating. I have so much love for Adyashanti purely for being a true advocate of his teachings and showing that it is possible to free your mind. It has saved me from myself.

Absolute gem of enlightenment, communicated without pretentiousness. The beauty of his enlightened lectures with such ordinary, humble and beautiful guidance is unlike any other I have heard.

Another path to try

Would you consider the audio edition of Spontaneous Awakening to be better than the print version?

There is nothing better than a live presentation of an author's ideas. Adyashanti is an engaging host, presenting his ideas on a path to enlightenment in a very personal way. The engagement of his audience also comes through.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

n/a

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The initial welcome sets a light, yet engaging tone for the whole series of talks.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Smiles and thoughtful engagement.

Any additional comments?

This books offers an intriguing path that may be of real benefit to those who are ready to follow. Certainly, the lack of strictures and Thou Shalts allow these talks to reach a wide audience and engage them. Adyashanti has a quiet, engaging charm that comes through. His personal anecdotes of his long term engagement with Zen Buddhism give him depth and his ideas show an understanding of people and how they put up there own roadblocks to understanding.
