What is enlightenment as defined by the Buddha? Here is a complete meditation guide to introduce you to this mystical state/experience called Nibbana. It is based on the most ancient historical Buddhist texts said to be spoken by the Buddha himself. A step that might as well be a secret in the text is brought to light that is the key to fast progress. The way the Buddha taught this meditation is fast and can even be done with consistent practice at home. All instructions are in this book. The result is a mind free from the ego's neurosis, with lovingkindness and mindfulness as the replacement.
Latest edition with added chapters that dive deeper into the profound levels of mind, more than any other other book published. New Summary of progress and instructions chapter added for 2021. "Wow! Got your book. It is a major contribution. What is Nibbana? What is the experience and how to achieve it is in this book." Based on the earliest Buddhist Texts with information from the suttas never discussed before.
Is Awakening actually possible? This new book definitely says yes, but only if you add back in the step that is left out of other methods. And only if you follow the method laid out by the Buddha in his earliest teachings. Nibbana can and does happen with practice - and in this book you will be shown the step by step progression through the eight aware jhanas (levels of understanding) to the final cessation and the appearing of the unconditioned (Nibbana); and the incredible joy that arises afterward. It will give you the instructions on how to practice - even at home at your own pace.
This is a complete meditation handbook with all the instructions to achieve the goal and all of the levels of knowledge along the way. Now integrates the full text of "A Guide to Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation (TWIM)," with detailed instructions, into the front section - also includes the full text of "A Guide to Forgiveness Meditation" as an appendix. Three books in one.
You will learn a different definition for Mindfulness that totally changes how you practice; and about a step in the text that has been left out of contemporary practices that is the key to the deepest levels of tranquility.
Learn the basics of Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation (TWIM) which is really the practice of Loving-kindness and the Brahmaviharas from the earliest Buddhist texts: The Majjhima Nikaya and the Samyutta Nikaya. This book will guide you from the beginning stages to the highest attainments laid out clearly and concisely. Many previous students’ experiences have been compiled and researched to create the basis for this book.
Additionally, other popular methods are compared here against the suttas to see if they match the Buddha's teachings and lead you to the enlightenment.
David Johnson wrote this book based on his insights as a senior student under Bhante Vimalaramsi, a 30-year monk living in the forests of Missouri. He came from a career in Silicon Valley to learn and study TWIM.
