These views are explained in plain English, with contemporary metaphors and examples to bring out their meaning for modern Buddhists. Quotations from both historical and living meditation masters and scholars are presented as examples of key principles. Topics include*;Egolessness*;Appearances and reality*;Methods of investigation*;Enlightenment*;Tenets of different schools through the centuries*;The root of compassion*;The origin of thoughtsGuided exercises encourage the reader to trust in experiential understanding through deep contemplation of complex concepts.
