New 2018 Edition with added chapters that dive deeper into the profound levels of mind than any other other book published." "Wow! Got your book. It is a major contribution. What is Nibbana? The experience and how to achieve it is in this book. Awakening actually is 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 for the past seven years at the Dhamma Sukha Meditation Center near St. Louis. He currently teaches Online Retreats and authored "A Guide to Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation" along with Bhante, which is the detailed beginning instructions for TWIM Loving-kindness practice.
