Why read it?

1 author picked Living with Awareness as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

There’s a lot of writing out there about mindfulness and meditation, but this book is really the place to start. Sangharakshita writes with a depth of clarity that manages to be inspiring, philosophical, and practical all at the same time. I can find books on mindfulness worthy and dull. This book is neither. My copy is covered with highlighter pen!

From Maitreyabandhu's list on Buddhism, meditation, and philosophy.
