The attention revolution
Author: B. Allan Wallace
The attention development path that draws from the precious reservoir of Tibetan Buddhism culminates in a state where the mind remains effortlessly concentrated for a long time. Anyone who suffers from the negative effects of modern life can greatly benefit from them since the attention of most individuals is impaired in various ways. Many merely assume that the mind itself is unstable; Alan Wallace, direct disciple of the Dalai Lama and scholar of the philosophy of science, argues instead that its qualities can be radically increased. This volume, a real guide, indicates numerous techniques to be practiced in the state of wakefulness and sleep, with the aim of finding a stable balance beyond agitation and numbness, restlessness and boredom.
