By Cynthia Thatcher
In eloquent, expressive language this book explores in depth the Buddha's significant teaching, "When seeing, just see; when hearing, just hear," as it applies to the practice of insight meditation as taught by Mahasi Sayadaw. Along the way, the book touches on the two kinds of reality-ultimate and conventional-expounded in the Abhidhamma. The author explains these two realities through the example of a pointillist painting of Seurat that can be viewed in two ways. In addition, there are meditation instructions for beginners, an appendix on the perceptual process as described in Buddhist metaphysics, and a crossword puzzle of Pali terms.
