(But it is a fiction and thus not to be feared).

      A very profound book for Meditators and those who want to get a deeper understanding of the workings of the mind.

      Found these teachings to be practical and super helpful with my mediation practice as well as with everyday experience.

"It's gold Jerry, Gold!"
