The Journey and the Guide: A Practical Course in Enlightenment

This book is for anyone who wants their life to be a journey.

Maitreyabandhu is a prize-winning poet who has been sharing his experience of practising Buddhism for over 20 years. With humour and profundity, mixing poetry and myth with down-to earth instruction, he describes what it means to set out on the Buddha’s journey and how you can follow it – day by day and week-by-week.

This is an eight-week course in Enlightenment that will take a lifetime to complete.

‘The natural mode of consciousness is to expand. In every moment we can either allow consciousness to unfold or we can make it ‘me’ and ‘mine’ and feel it shrink back to the level of egocentricity. It’s as if we’ve identified with a tiny ripple on the surface of the ocean. Once we let go of that identification there’s the whole ocean:centre-less, edgeless, completely free.’

‘This book feels contemporary and relevant – full of situations and anecdotes that you’ll instantly recognize from your own life. But it also goes deep. Being both practical and profound, it really is what it says, “a practical course in Enlightenment”. – Vajragupta, author of ‘Buddhism: Tools for Living Your Life’.
