Synopsis

Nirvana is not to be found in the fulfillment of endless desires the analysis of profound thoughts or even hours days or years of meditative contemplation. In fact it is the very act of seeking to obtain happiness peace and enlightenment that keeps them out of reach. Nirvana in a Nutshell offers 157 Zen meditations to help you discover what you might be doing (or not doing) in your life to sabotage your goal of reaching inner peace your own personal paradise. Let go of the quest and become that which you truly seek and you will find your own Nirvana. Nirvana is the state of grace where there is no longer any physical suffering mental anguish or unanswered questions. Many assume that the only way to achieve that magical state is if they walk away from the world and enter "the spiritual path." But conflict is a part of life--any kind of life. If you allow your peace to be taken away from you by external occurrences or internal disharmony then you will never know contentment. Peace is an inner triumph. Nirvana is not known because it has been propagated as the ultimate obtainment. It has been made a desire. But as Siddhartha Guatama stated "The cause of suffering is desire." Scott Shaw contends that people are looking for contentment in all the wrong places.
