Description
 
A funny and engaging guide to finding awareness in daily activities beyond sitting meditation--from a rising leader in the Insight Meditation community

Meditation is great, but it's not what Buddhist practice is all about. Deep insight and liberation from suffering can be found in any ordinary activity--from sorting the laundry to data entry--as long as we approach them with the necessary awareness. Such is the teaching of Buddhist monk Sayadaw U Tejaniya, who himself learned to cultivate awareness in the raucous years he spent in the Burmese textile business before taking his final monastic ordination at the age of thirty-six.

In this refreshingly modern guide, Sayadaw U Tejaniya teaches us how to bring awareness to all activities. By training ourselves to be aware of the clinging and aversion that arise in any situation, calm and deep insight will naturally follow. "The object of attention is not really important," he teaches, but "the observing mind that is working in the background. If the observing is done with the right attitude, any object is the right object." The flame of wisdom can be kindled in the midst of any life, even one that might seem too full of personal and professional commitments to allow for it.
