Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
For those who like their Buddhist mysteries unadulterated, Cohen, founder of the Impersonal Enlightenment Fellowship and author of Enlightenment Is a Secret, Freedom Has No History and An Unconditional Relationship to Life, provides a slim handbook on his understanding of the Buddhist experience of enlightenment. Cohen does not discuss Buddhism's history, tell the story of the Buddha's life, recount myths or even use much Buddhist terminology. Rather, he goes straight to the heart of Eastern mysticism--enlightenment, or, as he sometimes calls it, liberation--explaining what is required to attain it, what prevents it and its effects. Unlike much mystical literature currently on the market, this volume does not aspire to be a harmonization of the world's great religions. Plainly written and free of religious jargon, it is about one thing, enlightenment, and everything relates to that topic. Cohen presents his ideas uncompromisingly: one will not attain enlightenment unless one desires nothing else; the ego must disappear; all human experience is impersonal; enlightenment means realizing "nothing ever happened"; and one sees nothing by looking into the face of God. These stark concepts are not for the idly curious, but for readers who are serious in their desire to seek enlightenment in this pure form. (Sept.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
From The Critics
With Embracing Heaven & Earth, American spiritual teacher Andrew Cohen offers the reader a "psychology of liberation", blending transcendent spiritual wisdom with a penetrating scientific inquiry into human nature. Highly recommended reading for students of Eastern philosophy and spirituality, the major presentations comprising this informative, thought-provoking compendium include "The Five Fundamental Tenets of Enlightenment"; "Desire: The Perennial Obstacle"; "The Psychology of Liberation"; and the title piece, "Embracing Heaven & Earth".

    Posted September 25, 2000

    The last book you need to buy.

    It's the same everywhere: people raised by materialists, living as materialists, and perhaps passing to future generations, if only indirectly, the cultural creed of superfluous hungering for things of all sorts to ease a day's desire. You're guilty of it, and so am I. You've come here, to this page, looking for something. Very likely you're interested in spiritual matters, perhaps consider yourself a 'seeker,' and have heard of this new book by Andrew Cohen and decided to check it out, to see (if you're undecided) whether it's worth buying. I promise you that it is, but no doubt similar sentiments can be found alongside every other five-star review for each of the many spiritual books you already own. So let me try to convey to you why after reading this book you won't need another, and why the aimless perusal of the halls of BN.com late on computer-fan-humming weekend nights can finally give way to more fruitful pursuits.<br> <br> This book holds the highest honor of being both the simplest and most challenging book I've ever read. Simple in style and language, challenging in meaning and persistent imperative, this most flawless transmission of spiritually awakened genius should give any serious reader precisely all that he or she need ever know to engage the war against selfishness and ignorance wholeheartedly. And the real beauty of Andrew's message is in its absolutely universal applicability--and by 'universal' I mean exactly that: one gets the sense, when studying this book, that it should properly accompany any sentient creature born into this universe at any time, on any planet, in any galaxy (duly translated, of course). I'm not just gushing up superlatives here. The title of the book means exactly what it says. <br> <br> Regarding the actual content of the book, everything significant that every truly mystical religious tradition has ever conveyed is here, in both practical and philosophical aspects. The first half is devoted to the foundation of Andrew's teaching, called the Five Tenets of Enlightenment, which are the essential points that any spiritual seeker must thoroughly grasp and employ if his or her goal is the attainment of perfect liberation. These five tenets Andrew has culled from over a decade of incessant work as a teacher, and a well-read student of mysticism should easily recognize the parallels in established religious traditions (such as Tenet 5--'For the Sake of the Whole'--being a highly pragmatic implementation of the Bodhisattva vow, which Andrew's tenet basically renders as: 'Sentient beings are numberless, I vow to spare them all from my own ego'), but the beauty of these perennial teachings being shared so lucidly and dogmatically-free cannot be overstated. <br> <br> The second half of the book deals with such perennial topics as seeing through the illusions of desire, thought, feeling, and time, so clearly that anyone brave enough to listen can't help feeling their ego squirm a bit, and there's also an excellent chapter on meditation (and how to sink to the nondual Ground of Being absolutely effortlessly, Dzogchen-style), which, if successfully engaged in serious practice, should do far more than make the ego squirm. . . .<br> <br> But the really revolutionary and important point of Andrew's teaching isn't in his remarkably clear explanations of how humans continuously revolve in the samsaric wheel of foolishness (and how they can stop); it isn't in his insistence that the pursuit of freedom take precedence above all other concerns in all times and places (although that's certainly a big part of it); nor is it his unceasing demand that spiritual practice is meaningless if it is expressed in any context outside a life of absolute maturity, sanity, and integrity (and how many spiritual seekers--teachers, even--can claim strict adherence to that?). No, the really revolutionary ingredient in Andrew's recipe of ego-destruction is his definition of enlightenment itself
