Interesting and useful compilation

This collect of AW talks started off perfectly. It went into the general ideas around meditation and also some very important ideas about the self, mind, and the aims of spirituality.
Unfortunately towards the last 20 minutes, it descended into some bizarre talk on sound meditation. Why he chose a humming sound meditation to demonstrate what meditation is, is totally lost on me. From there it went into mostly irrelevant chatter about music, sound tones, and very by the way topics that only few would find vaguely useful.
The first part of the audio is highly worthwhile to hear, and is well delivery by AW.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
