Real Avaita 11 mars 2010
Par Michael Heun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is quite an honor to give the first Amazon book review for this Swartz book as it just might be the best Advaita/Vendanta (Science of Self Inquiry) written by a Westerner. I have read numerous Neo-Advaita books and 90% of them leave my head spinning with concepts that blow the mind (i.e. `You are no thing', `Just look, its right in front of you', `There is nothing for you to do, you are already IT' and on and on). This book will stop the spinning remarks and get you anchored in real Vendanta (knowledge). Swartz asks that `you become immersed' in the book and that is what happened in my case. If you think you have to drop the Mind, the Ego and the Intellect to become enlightened you had better read this book as these tools are the vehicle that will help you get there.
Why can't I see that `I am pure, unlimited Awareness'? Swartz will tell you exactly why and offers the proven methods to realize Awareness [Self]. These concepts are not Swartz's concepts; they go way back to the ancient Indian scriptures. They are proven, scientific methods of realizing the Self. Swartz has an excellent understanding of these methods and his presentation is easy to follow. I copied his triangular illustration of Self Awarness to keep handy as I read the book and I marked it up [as well as my book!] with notes as I progressed through the book. It summarizes quite well the condition of the 3 bodies all wrapped up in ignorance [Maya] through the 3 energies. There is so much more I can't begin to adequately summarize it. If you are serious about Advaita Vendanta, then you better get serious about getting this book. And don't forget his website at [...]. He has some of the key scriptures you can print off.
Thanks James, I was getting pretty dizzy! Now I know what to do.

The complete and time-tested driver's manual of Advaita Vedanta 3 avril 2011
Par V. Binette-Lamb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Although provocative, this book lives up to its title, as it unfolds the complete methodology of Advaita Vedanta, which purpose is to attain Self realization. I will not explain what Self realization is, as anyone slightly familiar with Vedanta already knows about this.

After some initial interest in some modern teachers of Non-Duality (namely Tolle), I decided to read a few classics, such as "Be As You Are" and "I am THAT", which moved me deeply but failed to provide me with day-to-day tools. I was then led to James' book, "How to Attain Enlightenment", after quite some consideration about where to go next.

The author has learned from Swami Chinmayananda in India, former leader of a vast Vedanta mission. He has subjected his mind to the full teaching tradition, removed his self ignorance and went on to study numerous ancien texts for several decades. He walks the talk and is quite agile at delivering clear and down to earth explanations about anything related to the topic of interest. He isn't just throwing at you a few Neo Advaita half-truths, feel good methaphors or even his personal experience of the Self. The whole methodoloy is exposed in a practical, logical and meticulous way and all of it makes complete sense as you contemplate it.

To me, this book is like my bible. I have read it multiple times and refer to it constantly. Since initially getting the book a year ago, I have made a lot of progress and my psychology has totally defrosted. This book helped me develop the qualities such as dispassion and discrimination.

Following Vedanta's tradition, you find all relevant topics such as the limitations of object happiness, the qualifications for self realization, the three yogas (karma, bhakti and jnana), the gunas and so forth. The author's real life examples are quite entertaining too and the reader can easily recognize him or herself in them. At first it may be hard to grasp all the teachings, as it can get quite dense and everything is totally interconnected. Over time, if you expose your mind to it consistently, the truth will stick to it more and more and you will find yourself agreeing with what is taught, because your own experience and logic will point towards the same understanding. This book delivers the template from which to conduct your life if you are interested in developping a pure mind, one which will be able to understand and assimilate the knowledge that culminates in the realization "I am the Self".

Lives Up to Its Title 22 octobre 2010
Par Jonathan D. Walker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I hesitated on this book at first because of the title but, having read through it once I can say it does deliver on its promise. On going back through and highlighting my original highlights I can see how there are enough gems, and a wide sweep of valuable ideas, to make for an extended and valuable study.

As I began reading the first chapter or two I found myself feeling impatient for the author to "get to the good stuff." Having read it all I can see how the beginnings were laying the groundwork for a patient, in-depth and very thorough exploration and preparation for what is to come--and it does come. I don't feel like anything was held back; it's all right here.

The last chapter explores what the author considers to be some of the shortcomings of "neo-advaita." The critique is thoughtful and insightful, and the body of the book as a whole furnishes enough in-depth background to understand the basis of his point of view. His occasional characterizations of seekers and teachers is delightfully snippy, bringing a smile and an occasional cringe when the snippy approaches the all too familiar. His website, shiningworld.com, is full of very good content as well. I had to explore the whole site before I finally bought the book.

What always used to put me off about yoga and vedanta was the inferred exclusivity of it all, "only for the truly dedicated seeker," etc. And then there was the solace of a possible "payoff" if only one were willing to be patient for what might be just a few more lifetimes. I just never was a gung-ho "seeker-type." But the inner drawing, on the other hand, the mystery that has sustained my curiosity for all these years, has never diminished. Whatever IT is, I used to think, is certainly already right here, right now. And this eloquent book clearly seems to agree.

"Neo-advaita" has brought the ultimate human issue into the immediate present for many of us, and in a language that westerners can relate to. So personally I really have no criticism of it. But in my opinion, this book provides the missing backstory. If you feel drawn to the promised payoff that the title infers, get this book. I'm sure you'll enjoy it and appreciate how James Swartz has laid it all out so beautifully. Clearly, a lifetime of heart went into this work.

SRI ADI SHANKARACHARYA RIDES AGAIN! 25 août 2011
Par Nathaniel Merritt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Before reading How To Attain Enlightenment by James Swartz I had been a Buddhist priest for over a decade and a Buddhist for over two decades. However, the Advaita Vedanta of James Swartz destroys Buddhism just as Advaita Vedanta did in the seventh century when Sri Adi Shankaracharya rid India of Buddhism, the very land in which Gautama was born. Buddhism had supplanted Advaita Vedanta in India, and Advaita Vedanta was almost unknown. Shankaracharya defeated and destroyed Buddhism via debate with the great Buddhist masters and teachers of his time. Most of the defeated Buddhists embraced Advaita Vedanta and the few who did not left India with their defeated and discredited doctrine. To this very day India is nearly devoid of Buddhism.

How To Attain Enlightenment thoroughly defeated and destroyed my Buddhism. As a result Buddhism has been banished from within me. Having read many other books on Advaita Vedanta I thought I really understood it. I did not. Not until I discovered genuine Advaita Vedanta presented by James Swartz--a disciple of the great Chinmayananda and Abhedananda--in a step-by-step "How to" manner that results in genuine understanding and genuine realization. Swartz is a realized being and a master of Advaita Vedanta. My eyes were opened to the fact that Advaita Vedanta is the Truth that enables one to realize enlightenment. I began to watch cherished Buddhist errors fall and be replaced by the Truth. Therein lies the vast difference between reading an abstract book written by a mere academic and reading a book written by a realized being, a living master (the best kind).

If you're serious about enlightenment and are tired of "always learning but never arriving at a knowledge of the Truth" then obtain How To Attain Enlightenment. Read it, study it, contemplate it, discuss it, and make this Truth your own. Advaita Vedanta is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Let James Swartz, a realized being, teach you. Visit his extensive, multifaceted, and engrossing web-site at shiningworld dot com

James Swartz is seventy years old and in apparent good health. Nonetheless, you should consult him as best you can while he still walks among us. Of course, if you're a mere dabbler, a dharma-fly, the solid no-nonsense presentation by Swartz is probably not for you. Swartz does not pander to the zeitgeist or any spiritual fad or the confused, aloof, and lazy mindset of the average seeker.

Swartz delivers on his promise in the title. 26 octobre 2010
Par Maury Lee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I happened on James Swartz website, [...] and read some of his free material. There is quite a bit of it and well worth reading. Other than this, I had never heard of him, despite having read non-dual books for over forty years. What I read was enough to convince me the book would be good.

This is one of the best books I've ever read on the subject. It brought me to final clarity, and after forty years, that's a lot! This is not new stuff. This is going back to the roots of Advaita Vedanta, explaining it clearly, and then pointing out the tried and true methods of obtaining enlightenment. This is not instant nirvana, this is the real method, the one's yogis practiced for thousands of years.

James explains that this is not a religion, not a philosophy, but a method to reach the truth. As with any method, there is work to be done. I'm not going to say more, except to repeat, this reader has read in this subject are for 40 years, this is one of the clearest, most precise works on the subject I have read. THANK YOU JAMES !!!
