Overview

Everyone dreams of a better life. All the things you’ve ever wanted — happiness, loving relationships, well-being, abundance, and peace of mind — are all qualities of enlightenment, a way of embracing our fullest potential that seemed unavailable to us, until now.

For thousands of years, the secret to enlightenment has remained hidden in the distant reaches of the Himalayas, deep in wisdom impenetrable to all but the most dedicated seekers. For the first time in history, The Backdoor to Enlightenment burns the rules and barriers that have hindered our understanding and reveals the keys to immediate, profound realization to the rest of the world. Blending centuries-old texts with contemporary wisdom, readers of any faith can bypass the traps and limitations of modern life and achieve lasting peace every day.
More than just a heartfelt story of mystery and discovery, this revolutionary work stands out as a smart, clear guide, showing step-by-step how you can use these astonishing truths to transform every aspect of your life. There might not be a shortcut to your dreams, but there is a Backdoor!

Meet the Author

ZA RINPOCHE is a Tibetan monk who first came to the world’s attention when his life story was chronicled in the first chapter of Po Bronson’s megabestseller, What Should I Do with My Life? While growing up in a refugee camp in Southern India, he was recognized by the Dalai Lama as the sixth reincarnation of the Za Choeje Rinpoche. He is the founder of the Emaho Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Scottsdale, Arizona, dedicated to sharing Tibetan culture with the West, supporting humanitarian projects, and assisting with personal spiritual development. Za Rinpoche teaches throughout the world, while maintaining his obligations as the spiritual leader to many monks.

ASHLEY NEBELSIECK is an author and adventurer.

    Great Title

    The backdoor to enlightenment is very catchy title. Enlightenment is trendy word that used these days and backdoor is something I would look for.

    Not worth finishing

    Writing is too simple to bother with. Book might be okay for children, but not for adults or any serious readers. Weak character development. Cliche prose. There are much better books out there representing such topics. Backdoor to Enlightenment doesn't have anything creative or new to offer the reader. Look elsewhere.
