5.0 out of 5 stars A good start, or encouraging, for your quest, to find out what Really is - or is not, 11 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Living This Life Fully: Stories and Teachings of Munindra (Paperback)
Munindra-ji taught me in '66 - at Samanvaya Ashram, Bodhgaya - i was his sole student at this periiod.
his words still ring in my ears, and are faithfully recorded in this book.
before i left, he said: "some time you will want to sit and be quiet"; and although i seemed to have forgotten all about the matter, his prediction came fully true starting 7 years later when an american friend invited me to meditate, (at that time in chögyam trungpa's school). since then until now his instructions of 1966 take up more and more space in my heart, words so concise that none of my subsequent teachers from zen to vajrayana could supersede them. this wonderfully elucidating book gives many of the details i heard from him and it is a good starter or deepener for everybody who wants to find out more about themselves and what life is about - on the buddhist or any other spiritual path. it is maybe good to mention that munindra's interest in everything led him to tell me about computers in 1966, and he told me how far off western objective psychology is from elucidating the mind from outside compared to insightful meditation. he showed me a work, possibly indian, created in this way detailing and systematizing all aspects of thought, sensations, volition etc. i'd be interested to find such a book now. anyway i owe munindra my basic tools for relating to all that is - until now, still using the technique he told me - in a few words, but precisely - to locate my self, or my non-self in the universe, or its relation to the illusions of maya.
you have the basic tools to vipassana in this book - read it and practise - i wish you good luck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book....., 20 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Living This Life Fully: Stories and Teachings of Munindra (Paperback)
A wonderful compilation of differing accounts by people who knew or who had been affected by Munindra and his teachings.
Some poignant stories which help give an insight into this most human and modest of meditation teachers whose compassion and joy touched so many lives. Inspiring......
