This stimulating book challenges our underlying assumptions about ourselves and the world around us. Only by seeing things as they really are can we become free from the inner source of unhappiness. Are things as solid and real as they appear?; Realise the truth behind appearances; Discover the dream-like nature of our world; Cultivate the wisdom that liberates the mind. By skilfully explaining the dream-like nature of all things, the relationship between our mind and our world, and the extent to which we create our own reality, the author guides us towards a deep and unshakeable happiness.
