The Truth about Enlightenment: How to Find Egolessness, Nonduality, and Wisdom on the Buddhist Path (Paperback)
Enlightenment is real, and you can attain it. The Truth about Enlightenment is a direct, accessible, and authentic account of the progressive spiritual insights along the Buddhist path-insights that reveal enlightenment itself.
If you've ever wanted to know what egolessness, emptiness, or nonduality really mean, how they differ from one another, and how to attain these and other core insights, The Truth about Enlightenment is a practical guidebook, written from direct personal experience, that will help these experiences come alive for you.
In simple, personal language, physician and longtime Zen and Tibetan Buddhist practitioner Fred H. Meyer, MD, describes each of the pivotal insights that lead to enlightenment. Drawing on his own life experiences, encounters with his teacher, the renowned meditation master Ch gyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and teachings from great masters throughout the Buddhist canon, Meyer describes how these insights relate to one another, what makes them challenging, and how they represent a progressively unfolding realization of our own true nature.
Throughout, Meyer emphasizes that enlightenment is for everyone, and that the wholehearted aspiration to realize it is the only qualification we need.
