When does enlightenment come? At the end of the spiritual journey? Or the beginning? In After the Ecstasy, the Laundry, Jack Kornfield - author of the modern classic on American Buddhism, A Path with Heart - brings into focus the truth about satori, the awakened state of consciousness, and enlightenment practices today. The result is this extraordinary look at the hard work we all must do - the laundry - no matter how often we experience ecstatic states of consciousness through meditation and other disciplines.
Sweeping in scope, and warmly told by one of American Buddhism's most trusted voices, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry is a work of both deep inspiration and daily instruction that cuts through the confusion about what enlightenment really is, who it comes to, and how it continues to inform and guide our spiritual lives.
An original audio adaptation of Jack Kornfield's book, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry.
Inspiring and yet realistic
This book shows a person remaining modest despite of knowing diverse cultural backgrounds to the path of enlightenment. He puts in evidence the fact that most wisdom seekers are only partly and punctually awaken and that this is normal. This can be verified in the own experience and in interaction with a spiritual teacher. JK is truly didactic and helpful as well as inspiring by these rich little stories he tells, that do good to the soul. It helps staying aware of the way still to go even when we think to be advanced in consciousness. It helps to stay modest and humour full, realistic and to avoid frustration or self delusion.
