Although I'm just starting my meditation, I think it's an excellent introduction into meditation and one's life. It focuses heavily on the mind and building awareness and thereby gives glimpses at the goals of the practice of meditation. Tulku continually explains why many people feel lost, anxious and misdirected in their lives and how meditation can help these people find a natural inner confidence. If you're looking for something to tell you to 'sit here, think this, breath this way' you might be disappointed in the philosophical nature of this book's writing. I think that's a normal attitude for us beginners to have, but once you've begun your journey on the path of meditation you'll probably think your original preconceptions about it were silly.
This is an absolute gem of a book. Read it
