About this title


The Science of Enlightenment
Shinzen Young

Is enlightenment a myth? Or is it real? On The Science of Enlightenment, you will learn that the liberated state is as real as your sensations right now. For it is through the investigation of your own experience that you can awaken to clear insight and happiness independent of conditions: the state of enlightenment. Through his expertise in both science and spirituality, meditation teacher Shinzen Young demystifies the principles of awakening contained in the world’s great spiritual traditions, and shows you how to use them in your own life. Here – in a 12-tape course covering traditional teachings, scientific insights, and practical instruction – you will test for yourself the great wisdom traditions, including Buddhism, Christianity, Jewish mysticism, Sufism, Hinduism, shamanism, and many others. Why is "single-pointed concentration" so highly regarded on every contemplative path? How do you bypass inner blocks for a state of highest presence? How do you know if your meditation practice is working? Shinzen Young elucidates these topics with precision and intelligence, demonstrating why he is regarded as one of the West’s most articulate and understandable teachers of classical mystical experience.The search for awakening is not limited to a chosen few. It is a field open for you to investigate – once you possess the "inner technologies" to do so. Now you can begin that investigation, with The Science of Enlightenment.

Book Description:

In his dual life as an American-born scholar of physics and mathematics and a fully ordained Buddhist monk, Shinzen Young is uniquely poised to bridge the wisdom of East and West. Here, he discusses the nature of enlightenment, and teaches listeners specific meditation exercises to cultivate this state in their own lives.
