Sintesi dell'editore

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 14 years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as a means to a goal they never reached. Ultimately, he realized that only when you let go of all techniques, even 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
  • Three guided meditations 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".

    Very Nice, Different and Refreshing

    In reading other reader comments I almost didn't buy this, so now I am writing a review to aid those who might make the mistake of not getting this. Other sites reviewers rated this very highly, but another reviewer here said it was not as described and no mediation techiniques were offered. I disagree.

    I think that reader may have been looking for a more guided form of meditation technique. This author teaches you to let go of trying to control your meditative practice and experience it on a more organic level. It is very effective if you are looking to examine deep meditation with an emphasis on spirtual awakening rather than guided meditation for relaxation or to achieve other goals. Very very nice, relaxing and easy to understand.

    Where does True Meditation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed this book. I struggle with meditation and now I know why..I am to caught up on what I think it should be like. This book takes a fresh look at how to do meditations.

    Although I havnt I have recently purchased another of his books Spontaneous Awakening
    And can't wait to get into it.

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

    My reaction was...so thats what I have been doing wrong all this time!

    Any additional comments?

    Not As Described

    Difficult to follow--No true meditation practice as outlined in the publisher's description.

    He's the real deal

    If you could sum up True Meditation in three words, what would they be?

    Everything this guy talks about, I identify and relate with. He writes from real experiences and insights he discovered on his own and not through outside sources, or made up to make it sound poetic or philosophical. I know this because I've done the same and came to the exact same truths and insights. It's like reading my own thoughts on awakening and what it means, only it sounds better coming from him.

    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a true account of his experiences with awareness.

    What about Adyashanti’s performance did you like?

    You can't tell he's reading from his book. It sounds like conversation.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    True Meditation

    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to understand what real meditation is. If you don't fully understand what he talks about, it's only because you haven't had his experiences. But trust me, it's all true and if you DO understand what he writes about, it's a bit mind blowing.

    A mind blowing speech

    A cut through all the meditation obstacles, especially those which make you chase your tails. Got shocked at the end with a radical shift in awareness. I was asking “ what am I” and found out that there is no one is asking, the one who was asking the question, was the same who was looking for the one who was asking, its funny and super deep and radical. Experienced the non-dual self recognition, and at the same time, I saw the dual, illusive self/reality or ego.

    Highly recommended.

    Short-term help, long-term not so much

    The teachings and guided meditations here are helpful for the short-term if you want to relax and get a good night's sleep.

    However.

    The teachings on accepting yourself and everybody else in the world are too idealistic. Although you may feel like a spiritual giant for awhile, your "acceptance of what is" will likely last until the first driver cuts you off on the freeway or a co-worker takes credit for work you've done. Then you are likely to revert to your previous status as a human being with all the traits of anger, fear and frustration that characterize the human condition.

    As a more pragmatic teacher once said: "Nobody rises above human."

    If you're looking to relax without a martini, then this program might help you for a night or two. But if you're looking for a philosophy of life, you may be disappointed.

    Adyashantis teaching is great, rest is not

    I really like Adyashanti's teachings because it goes from his personal experience, no one's else and his realization can be seen sort of radiating from him.
    I didnt like music and songs between and I for this price it's kind of short - so that's why I have those lower stars on story and performance.

    An excellent understanding and communication of meditation

    This book provides a clear understanding of what meditation is and isn’t. For anyone believing it’s too hard or they aren’t “good” at meditation, this book will offer you a path. So absolutely grateful for teachers such as adyadhanti- his approach is simple and direct-

    See for yourself what I tell you to see

    Generally I like Adyashanti and this was no exception. However I have to say that in the meditations there's quite a bit of directing what the experience is supposed to be. Which wouldn't bug me if he didn't emphasize "your own experience" so much.

    Maybe it works for some.

    Absolutely STUNNING

    Adiyashanti is such a wonderfully gifted and amazingly knowledgeable teacher of enlightenment and self enquiry. My mind has read/listened to hundreds of books on enlightenment, this is by far the best. Absolute gem that will speed up your journey to finding your true self hundred fold. Thank you Adiyashanti.

    Guidance from a true spiritual master

    With a lovely tone of voice and from a place of true spritual grounding Adyashanti offers beautiful guidance and pointers into your true core. One of the greatest thing about this book is how Adyashanti dismantles the obstacles to true meditation - your expectations on how medition should be and your effort on trying to accomplish certain states.

    An excellent guide to the serious spiritual seeker

    As with all Adya's books this is an excellent guide to the serious spiritual seeker. Explained in Adya's easy to understand style, very thought provoking and illuminating. Thank you Adya for all your books you have helped so many people in their spiritual search for awareness.

    Not Bad

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This book in theory I would recommend doing a chapter at a time

    Has True Meditation put you off other books in this genre?

    The Contents of the book is very heavy in places and very lacking regarding the source of meditation content. It was not very helpful as a starter for anyone who does meditation not much content or wisdom at all.

    Would you listen to another book narrated by Adyashanti?

    I would recommend the author. But the narrator at the end had a really annoying voice and got a bit on my nerves.

    Did True Meditation inspire you to do anything?

    Theory

    Any additional comments?

    NA

    Brilliant intro to meditation

    This is a clear and vivid audiobook on meditation. It has been hugely beneficial on my meditation journey and I love to go back to the guided meditations every now and again, for deeper clarity and understanding.

    Beautifully taught and expertly guided meditation.

    A valuable addition to the existing teachings, practices and variations of meditative techniques. A very worthwhile experience.
