Ebook description:

If, as Buddhism claims, the potential for awakening exists in all human beings, we must always have the ability to map the phenomenon with the identical science we apply to different types of consciousness. A pupil of cognitive social science and a Zen practitioner for greater than forty years, Richard P. Boyle brings his refined perspective to bear on the growth of a theoretical mannequin for each peculiar and woke up consciousness. Boyle conducts probing interviews with eleven distinguished Western Buddhist lecturers (Shinzen Young, John Tarrant, Ken McLeod, Ajahn Amaro, Martine Batchelor, Shaila Catherine, Gil Fronsdal, Stephen Batchelor, Pat Enkyo O’Hara, Bernie Glassman, and Joseph Goldstein) and one scientist (James Austin) who’ve skilled awakening. From the paths they traveled to enlightenment and their descriptions of the expertise, he derives three elementary properties of woke up consciousness. He then constructs an overarching mannequin that explains how Buddhist practices assist free the thoughts from attachments to actuality and the self and make attainable the three properties of awakening. Specifically, these lecturers describe how they labored to regulate consideration and quiet the thoughts, detach from concepts and habits, and open themselves to compassion. Boyle’s account incorporates present theories of consciousness, sociological insights, and analysis in neuroscience to advance the research of woke up consciousness and assist a fair better variety of individuals to appreciate it.
