The Mind Illuminated by Culadasa is a phenomenal book. I’ve never encountered such a clear, practical and comprehensive meditation manual. This meditation manual offers step-by-step guidance, and can take you from the very first sit all the way to mastery of the deepest states of peace and insight.
The techniques taught in The Mind Illuminated are designed to progressive build your cognitive skills such as stability of attention and mindfulness so that they can be used to cultivate of tranquility and insight. As opposed to other practical manuals, the emphasis and the map of progress is not defined by the occurence specific experiences, but by the mastery of key skills.
Since encountering it in 2016, I’ve been practicing the technique taught in The Mind Illuminated, and am now training as a teacher under Culadasa. If you’re looking for a single meditation book that covers it all, this is the one.
