Salzberg distills greater than twenty-five years of educating and training meditation right into a sequence of brief essays, wealthy with anecdotes and private revelations, that supply actual reduction and luxury for an individual at the non secular direction. Many likelihood moments, either small and profound, function the foundation for Salzberg's teachings: listening to a marketplace stall hawker calling "I have what you need!"; noting inn guests' reactions to a hour of darkness fireplace alarm; observing her instructor, Dipa Ma, bless a belligerent puppy; seeing the Dalai Lama giggling uproariously at his personal mistake. each one passing second, Salzberg exhibits, may also help us down the trail towards "a seamlessness of connection and an unbounded heart."

Ananda: The Guardian of the Dhamma

His abdominal merely grows and grows,
But his perception deepens not.
