Self-Deception: The Buddha's Liberating Teaching of No-Self textStepping Out of Self-Deception: The Buddha's Liberating Teaching of No-Self ⏛ Author Rodney Smith ␦ Rodney Smith Lessons from the Dying , a Seattle insight meditation teacher and former hospice director, argues that the core of Buddhist wisdom is the nonexistence of the self anatta But even dedicated practitioners find this teaching difficult, he argues Through all our techniques and procedures, the senseof I remains the cornerstone of our existence Focusing on Buddhisms eightfold path, Smith tries to jolt the reader out of this belief in a separate self He emphasizes the importance of discovery and experimentation, following the Buddhas dictum of testing principles rather than accepting dogma A sometimes idiosyncratic terminology reflects Smiths own journey from reliance on spiritual teachers to detailed investigation Acute insights mingle with vague abstractions We only lose sight of unity it never leaves us He critiques what the late influential Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chogyam Trungpa considered spiritual materialism attachment to particular methods or experiential states, especially in the Western pursuit of psychological health Additional concrete examples and tighter editing would have made this book approachable, but Smiths examination of a profound teaching is thought provoking Copyright Reed

the Buddhist doctrine of anatta no self , which is a concept that is most difficult at the best of times The Middle Way Journal of the Buddhist SocietyEvery so often a book appears that revitalizes our understanding of who we are and what our lives are about Stepping Out of Self Deception is such a book A wonderfully fresh and beautifully written investigation of the path of awakening, it also challenges many of our assumptions along the way.Joseph Goldstein, author of One Dharma and Insight Meditation The Practice of Freedom The Buddhist doctrine of anatta no self seems quite counterintuitive to the Western mind we may not be sure of much, but aren t we sure we are here Descartes says as much Rodney Smith succeeds masterfully in laying bare the self non self doctrine and its many insidious misunderstandings that often than not result in our using spiritual practice to reinforce the very pain we hoped it would liberate us from He makes it clear that the Buddhist goal is not self improvement or self elimination but rather the radical recognition that we have never been isolated, we have always belonged I am deeply moved by this intelligent, practical, and challenging look at the Buddhist path for our time and place.Zoketsu Norman Fischer, author of Sailing Home and Taking Our Places The Buddhist Path to Truly Growing Up I found this book extremely clear and helpful Rodney is able to explain concepts that are generally hard to comprehend, and make them readily accessible His words are written from the heart, which is where this book resonates.Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Faith Trusting Your Own Deepest Experience Rodney Smith humanizes the Buddhist path He probes no self but in so doing reveals himself to be honest, humble, and wise His writing makes this most elusive concept come alive.Mark Epstein, MD, author of Thoughts without a Thinker and Going to Pieces without Falling Apart Rodney Smiths terrific new book will help us step out of the vicious cycle of self deception and into the illumined realm of self knowledge and spiritual realization His deep, long term of Buddhist practice and liberating wisdom combined with a vocation of service work in the field of death and dying has perfectly equipped him to bring together here the best of East and West in elucidating how we ourselves can explore and penetrate the inner dynamics of identity and self, no self, transpersonal being, and discover the complete being of our innate Buddhaness, the radiant Buddha nature.Lama Surya Das, author of The
