Full, Permanant, 100% Spiritual Enlightenment — can we all have it?

I just finished the book, “Mindfulness in Plain English”.

It talks about Vipassana Meditation as the way to “Enlightenment”.

The author defines Enlightenment as full, persistent, unbroken, 24×7 “Mindfulness”.

He says it is totally doable, for anyone, meaning it does NOT require spiritual or religious or mystical or “new age” mumbo jumbo.

Just practice. A particular practice. The meditation PRACTICE known as Vipassana. As taught by The Buddha 2,500 years ago, and fully refined through today.

And it is hard work, but it is just work. So anyone can do it, and achieve Enlightenment, and radically and dramatically change their life for the better forever.

And all that other stuff is either total BS, or just side-effects of Meditation.

Can anyone and everyone achieve Enlightenment by practicing Vipassana Meditation??

  • Hello

    Enlightenment is possible for us all, we have to be dedicated in that aim.

    If you do not wish any ‘ spiritual or religious or mystical or “new age” mumbo jumbo’ then maybe Vipassana isn’t for you – it is Buddhist & spiritual.

    You say that it is Just Work, to work with the mind to create harmony & quiet the monkey mind is a very hard task, a lot start but few finish.

    Meditation makes changes at all level of life.
