Reviews summary

Shaila catherine is the real deal in dharma, and this book is meant for dedicated practitioners who will not be daunted by seeing the vast distance to be covered in the spiritual journey

This is not a book for spiritual window shoppers, but rather for those who wish to achieve mastery of the mind and the wisdom that comes from seeing clearly, free of all defilements

No book, or collection of books, can eliminate the need for sangha and an ongoing relationship with a luminous teacher, but this book is a valuable jewel, and will be treasured by those willing to not only read about the work but actually do it

This book was recommended to me by a monastic teacher when approached regarding ways to deepen my practice
