Genuine spiritual practice, not least the NgOndro preliminaries, will not bring the kind of comfort and ease most worldly people crave. Quite the opposite, in fact. But if your ultimate goal is enlightenment, NgOndro practice is a must, and "Not for Happiness" your perfect guide, as it contains everything an aspiring practitioner needs to get started, including advice about:
- developing "renunciation mind"
- discipline, meditation and wisdom
- using your imagination in visualization practice
- why you need a guru.
