Gotama, is Nibbana... continue...

Product Description:
This work deals with the mastery of awareness and with the realization of a new cycle of seers, "warriors of total freedom, ... such masters of awareness, stalking, and intent that they are not caught by death, like the rest of mortal men, but choose the moment and the way of their departure from this world. At that moment they are consumed by a fire from within and vanish from the face of the earth, free, as if they had never existed."

Through don Juan's mesmerizing stories, the true meaning of sorcery and magic is finally revealed. Honed in the desert of Sonora, the visions of don Juan give us the vital secrets of belief and self-realization that are transcendental and valid for us all.

Summary
Editorial Reviews
From AudioFile
In this ambitious work, Victor Sanchez distills many of the teachings and practical applications contained in Carlos Castaneda's first eight books. THE TEACHINGS assumes a listener's familiarity with the lexicon of Castaneda's world, and the vocabulary can be initially overwhelming. The exercises though are infinitely practical and are explained clearly. Some of the techniques presented include: "not doing," experiencing the body as an energy field, the magic of attention and intention, the power of silence, and working with dreams.

Summary
From the Publisher
Thirty years ago the University of California Press published a remarkable manuscript by an anthropology student named Carlos Castaneda. The Teachings of Don Juan initiated a generation of seekers dissatisfied with the limitations of the Western worldview. Castaneda's now classic book remains controversial for the alternative way of seeing that it presents and the revolution in cognition it demands. In a series of fascinating dialogues, Castaneda sets forth his partial initiation with don Juan Matus, a Yaqui Indian shaman from the state of Sonora, Mexico. He describes Don Juan's perception and mastery of the "non-ordinary reality" and how peyote and other plants sacred to the Mexican Indians were used as gateways to the mysteries of "dread," "clarity," and "power."
