Read from August 02 to November 20, 2010

It's been many years since a book really changed the way I see the world and my life. What is matter? Who are we? Big questions. It took me about five months to read this book, because after every few pages there's a meditation to do and mostly i wouldn't go on until i felt that i had satisfactorily completed the meditation. Eventually i realized that this is actually the work of several years; in the chapter on single-point meditation, The Dalai Lama shows nine stages: i made it from stage one to stage three in about eight weeks.

This is not a good introduction to buddhist thought, but if you want to understand yourself better and are willing to put work into it, i recommend it highly.
