A Master's Secret Whispers

By Kapil Gupta

Book Takeaway

  • Avoid prescriptions. Don't ask how questions, instead ask why or what questions. If you want to learn to meditate don't look for a 12 step guide on how to meditate and follow it. Instead seek to learn what meditation and why you would want to do it. If you focus on how to do something you will be subservient to the how and not to the thing. The goal of meditation is not to get good at meditating, it is to be meditative.
  • "The refinement is the joy, not that something good will come of it."
  • I'll likely never re-read this book but I could see myself checking back to his blog or twitter, siddha performance, occasionally.
