The Science of Enlightenment review Ó 3 What is enlightenment Is it a myth or is it real On The Science of Enlightenment you will learn that the liberated state is as real as the sensations you are having right now For it is through the investigation of your own thoughts and feelings that you can awaken to clear insight and a happiness independent of conditions the state of enlightenmentThrough his expertise in both science and spirituality meditation teacher Shinzen Young demystifies the principles of awakening hidden within the world's great spiritual traditions and shows you how to use them in your own lifeHere in an uneualed 14 CD course covering traditional teachings scientific insights and practical instructions you will test for yourself the discoveries of the great wisdom traditions including Buddhism Christianity Jewish mysticism Sufism Hinduism shamanism and many othersWhy is single pointed concentration so highly regarded on every contemplative path How do you move beyond emotionalintellectual blocks and into a state of highest presence Where do psychic powers and other mystical. I know that the author is an excellent meditation teacher with years of experience under his belt It is because he has such experience and ability that I m going to go hard on this review I m not sure what went down with his publishing of his magnum opus here which should have delivered much much practical content and less fluff I ll present the good bad and uglyThe good The one redeeming factor which earned it 2 3 stars was the simple elegant and effective techniue he presents towards the end of the work being Just note gone It s an excellent method simple and delivers on actually giving readerslisteners a taste of what he has been going on at length for hours regarding anicca impermanence flow contraction and expansion etc This little gem does make going through the whole laborious work almost worthwhile even though this too is explained very briefly and not nearly in enough detailThe bad For a textaudiobook purporting to explain How Meditation Works there was about 5% of the whole work that actually explained how meditation works and what to actually DO assuming meditation or as he calls it concentration is an activity which most beginners and those alike will interpret this word The remainder 90 95% of the work goes into minute detail about the author s own personal views and subjective descriptions on meditative states processes conceptual mappings comparisons with different spiritual paths etc Of course this is all interesting brain food but remains on the level of interesting intellectual mind stuff while never getting down to the nuts and bolts of what processes are involved in actually attaining to these lofty experiences I have no idea why the author makes up his own complicated jargon and maps for Noting practice talks about how effective Noting and mindfulness practice is and then never actually explains in detail HOW to do the Noting practice he refers to throughout Apart from the very brief Noting Gone techniue A lot detail should have gone into Noting how to do it and exercises etc I know that the author does this on retreats and in seminars Why not include it in his greatest work I found that there wasn t much of a need to keep comparing spiritual systems and explaining the real meaning of their practices when essentially most people reading this would be coming to SY from a Buddhist Meditation or Mindfulness perspective If they wanted Christian Mysticism Hebrew euivalents or linguistic explanations of Japanese Zen terms they probably wouldn t be readinglistening to this work The book should have been entitled Descriptions of Enlightenment What to expect and how it all conceptually fits together according to SYThe ugly The author details his own history several times and presents it in a way that demonstrates how excellent and massive his own spiritual journey was and gives the impression that mere mortals in contemporary life would probably not be able to attain such levels mastery due to not having about 20 years of free time to live in temples endure months of standing under cold waterfalls and endurance tests or having the opportunity to study under legendary teachers All this serves to dampen any newbie s hopes of every experiencing the lofty descriptions of meditative states and experiences herein not helpful There is so much complicated jargon throughout that it detracts from the simple experience and approach to meditation and Noting proper This over effort on describing experiences and in giving explanations according to how Master Shinzen sees things goes off track several times His supposedly elegant and wow explanations given for Zen koans such as Joshu s Dog might satisfy the intellectually curious mind and present a nice logical view of dualitynonduality as a concept but that has just undercut the actual REAL use and true result of using that Koan which is to actually STOP intellectual explanations and which the proper use is never discussed in practical terms by the author In another instance he explains that in noting Gone he has a special meaning apart from the usual usage and that objects may keep coming back once noted From a surface view this may seem true but ultimately something gone IS in fact really gone forever which the author refutes There is no identical same experience that ever repeats again in time He seems to demonstrate this with his dancing mountains explanations earlier in the book So why not actually use the regular usual meaning for gone instead of creating a new special meaning that persists This is just one example The use of psychological explanations and comparisons with Freud Jung s mappings etc is distracting than helpful likewise the use of psuedo science terms and concepts which seems to be common in American literature in this categoryOverall the bookaudiobook may be worth it s labour for the Noting Gone techniue but it takes some major effort to endure and complete An author with his level of experience could have done much better The Alien Jigsaw real On The Science of Enlightenment you will learn that the liberated state is as Towards a Comprehensive Theory of Human Learning Lifelong Learning and the Learning Society real as the sensations you are having The Illusion of Gods Presence right now For it is through the investigation of your own thoughts and feelings that you can

An audio series that changed my life As thorough an introduction to the practice of meditation and the experience of the spiritual journey as one could find but also so much Shinzen is such a precise and articulate orator that listening to his words it s as though you are directly experiencing for yourself the deep states of consciousness he is describing Of course though that s not the point the point is to get you on to the cushion to actually practice yourself for anyone who has watched Shinzen s YouTube channel and read his Basic Mindfulness manual will know he is an absolute master mediation teacher with a complete system on offer I defy anyone to listen to the first two chapters of Science of Enlightenment alone and not be curious enough to get on to the cushion and find out for themselves what it is all about I did and I have never looked back
