Useful for meditators and non-meditators alike. This was the first book to appear in English that accurately describes the practice of Vipassana at length for the general reader. It includes stories by Goenkaji as well as answers to students' questions that convey a vivid sense of his teaching.

    " Basically a polished edition of Goenka's Dhamma talks at his 10 day vipasssana courses describing the heart of yoga practice, absorption to one's own being and thus deepening one's understanding of reality, ultimately liberating oneself from the prison of one's own behavior patterns. "

    " A compelling and accessible explanation of Buddha's teachings, and the hows and whys of Vipassana meditation. "

    " I just finished a 10 day silent retreat with S.N.Goenka. It was absolutely amazing and I learned so much. This book is essentially that training. Don't know how much a person could get just by reading it. Afterwards, though, it is a great resource. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sparji | 5/31/2013

    " It comes closest to the best book that I have read till date on meditation and what it can do for you. I understand that perhaps one cannot get the technique right till one goes for the 10 day conclave but at least one knows the reasoning behind it and what it can lead to. "

    " Great principles of vipassana "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rwildfon | 3/19/2013

    " As a "new" Vipassana meditator I find myself wanting to know more about the technique. William Hart with S. N. Goenka have put together an accessable account of what it is all about. "

    " Simplifying the way of living: Just by practicing Vipassana Meditation. Not a better formula. Precious! "

    " May all beings be happy, peaceful, liberated. "

    " Maybe not as interesting as some similar books I've read, but clear and precise on the principals of Vipassana. "

    " read this book, take a vipassana meditation course. it is honestly one of the most fulfilling experiences you can have on the planet that doesn't involve something illegal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chazzy | 6/4/2012

    " not as clear a guide as some others i've read, but still interesting and full of very useful observations. "

    " i just finished this book. i recently finished the 10 day silent vipassana retreat in north fork, california, and it had a profound affect on me. i want to maintain the awareness i felt there. "
