DESCRIPTION
This Book Explores The Buddha's Teaching On The Five Hindrances To Awakening In The Ancient Scripture Samyutta Nikaya, Where He Contrasts Them To The Seven Factors Of Enlightenment. The Five Hindrances Are A Feature Of What's Taught In All The Buddhist Traditions. Mitch Abblett Gives The Teaching A Unique Modern And Secular Interpretation, Combining Traditional Wisdom With Contemporary Psychology--with Examples From The Lives Of Real People He Has Worked With On The Hindrances In His Psychotherapy Practice. The Hindrances Are, According To Mitch's Formulation (there Are Various Others)- Desire, Hostility, Sluggishness, Worry, And Doubt. Recognizing How Each Hindrance Manifests In You Goes A Long Way Toward Freeing Yourself From It, But Each Hindrance Also Has A Corresponding Antidote That Works Like A Wonder Drug Prescribed For A Specific Illness. The Book Takes The Buddhist Five Hindrances Beyond Their Application To Meditation And Uses Them As A Frame For Engaging Readers In A Process Of Contemplating Their Own Life In General And Learning To Turn Into Their Experience Rather Than Merely Repeating Bad Habits.
