Includes word-by-word Sanskrit, transliteration, and translation into English, with summary sentences and commentary. Topics covered include the nature of Self, dying, practices for and obstacles to nondual awakening, dealing w/desires, renunciation or not, faith, steps in awakening, likelihood of success in awakening, affecting/changing the world, moods, being disrespected, working effectively and fully in the everyday world, free will and control, surrender and letting go, and the bliss of awakening.

The second half is a "Dialogues" section which gives dialogues in a question and answer format with practitioners on key elements and questions of the Bhagavad Gita as it applies to nondual awakening. This includes sections on free-will, practice and awakening in everyday life w/full-time job and family, surrender, sin and karma, cognitive neuroscience, quantum physics, stopping thoughts, dealing with anger, self-inquiry, and obstacles to and experiences of nondual awakening.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

The author was raised in a devout Methodist home and through early adolescence until late twenties, was married, had two children, was in the submarine service and got a Ph.D. Following a near-death experience in the military, he deeply explored what was possible to remove his suffering brought about by endless self-referential narrative. Reading a famous Zen poem he experienced the falling away of the normal world and a luminous transcendent state. When this passed, he was left with a burning desire to return to it. He went deeply into Zen meditation, various yogas and self-inquiry. With a wife and two children and increasingly responsible research jobs in national laboratory, industry and academia, he still got up daily, hours before work, to meditate and do yoga asanas. This process continued for over 25 years eventually reaching the senior executive level of a major company with 1000 folk, 4 research laboratories and a budget of $260M. There were many "spiritual experiences", but nothing that ended the suffering brought about by thought. One day, after consciously surrendering every attachment, and realizing his inability to reach the final understanding “by his efforts”, doing an asana done thousands of times before, a complete shift occurred - self-referential thoughts, fears and desires fell away and all that happened, happened in stillness and presence. He realized that he was not this body, nor these thoughts, but the undying consciousness behind them. He saw that everything was perfect as it was and that all was somehow within him, and that simultaneously everything was One. He soon left his executive position, did many silent retreats and saw his Zen masters, and yoga teachers in the U.S. and India to confirm his understanding. To see if it was possible to function successfully from an awakened state, he took other complex, high responsibility, upper-level management positions in fields in which he had no previous experience, and was very successful. During this last period, at the urging of students, other yoga teachers, and a Zen master, he began teaching again. Since then, he has taught, authored two books, a blog, many articles, numerous videos, interviews, and presentations on nonduality and neuroscience at various conferences and universities. He has been a subject and/or collaborator in cognitive neuroscience and meditation studies at Baumann Institute, IONS, CSNSC, Yale, Johns Hopkins, and Penn State.

HASH(0x933a248c) von 5 Sternen dancing beyond thought 1. Oktober 2013
Von Cory Zorba - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Have you ever read the source code for the Universe?

I have been searching high and low over decades for a book like Dancing Beyond Thought. After so many trials and errors it is extremely refreshing to have "all" one might need for non-dual meditation practice in one concise volume.

Gary Weber PhD has created something that goes beyond words, beyond this or that, and is ever so perfectly "pointing directly at Mind and realizing the Way."

What is most important to me about this book is it is not a scholarly treatise but more along the lines of a poem that sings a song of true liberation.

Some have this burning question: What is this right now? Who or What am I really? This book enables the reader to see directly what the answer to this question may be. You can call it a book but I might call it a mirror that shows you who you really are. In here you will find these lines of the Gita unpacked by a long-time meditator who writes in a way that goes beyond the meanings. It is a very beautiful book that enables the Gita to come alive in the reader's a way that seems timeless.

Prepare to have many questions answered. Gary Weber PhD is definitely qualified, via his depth of experience in many different paths, to point to the liberating Knowledge of the ancient non-dual traditions.

My only chagrin is that the book is not longer. The dialogues and extra stuff at the end add a surprising touch of intimacy - demonstrating how the practices actually work in the real world of 21st century, western, post-modern life...facebook and email included!

HASH(0x933a24e0) von 5 Sternen The power of chanting could not have been predicted 18. September 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was lucky enough to have received an advanced copy of Gary's book some time ago and am well in progress learning to chant the 60 Bhagavad Gita verses. I just received my paperback copy of the book two days ago and read through it all. I am delighted at the format, very well done. The accompanying video of Gary chanting these verses on YouTube (search "Gary Weber Bhagavad Gita") is obviously super helpful in learning to chant these verses. The subtitles with the Sanskrit text & translation is perfect.

I mentioned in my review of his book Happiness Beyond Thought that I never could have predicted or imagined I would have any desire to chant Sanskrit ("I" was a die hard rocker). Gary once remarked to me that chanting in my head "is better than the alternative" - the alternative being the usual chaotic array of disjointed thought patterns. This comment sunk in, and, as Richard Doyle so eloquently writes in the foreword of the book, I shut up and chant. Ideas and beliefs and old patterns really do just drop away... I cannot explain this. There is power in chanting, and it seems to be not about the chanting at all.

During most of my daily walks with the dog I have a written paper with the verses I am learning with me, and chant them over and over. During work breaks, morning coffee, shower, etc. Mostly in my head, and sometimes out loud to get the feel of the sounds. Once a new verse is gelling in memory I chant everything from the beginning to tie it all together. Then I go to YouTube and listen to be sure the pronunciation is at least close :)

Happy to see the chapter "Letting go of the "I" and its stories". I found it was meaningless until I actually sat down, took a deep breath did the exercises. This chapter is worth repeating. Huge thanks and gratitude to Gary.

HASH(0x933a27bc) von 5 Sternen Practical contemporary comments on the Bhagavad Gita 24. September 2013
Von David - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Gary Weber's work has taken away many of my doubts as a meditator and replaced them with strong confidence to persist with self-inquiry.

Subject in numerous scientific studies, Gary is the living proof that it's humanly possible to be permanently without troublesome thoughts and remain fully functional.

Who could be better placed to write contemporary practical comments to the Bhagavad Gita?

"[...] Gary Weber. We have scanned him in the FMRI work we are doing at Yale and he lives in the present more than anyone else we have yet scanned (we have scanned 100 or so experienced meditators)"
- Jeffrey Walker

"Enlightenment for me is what Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta, Patanjali's yoga sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Tao Te Ching defined, which is to have no thoughts."
- Gary Weber

Von Billy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Gary provides an incredible mix of bhakti and jnana yoga for those wishing to achieve enlightenment. Through his easily adopted method of self-inquiry, one may learn to find their true Self which lies within the heart of every individual. His diction is humble and efficient. Great book, easy read.
