Andre is a Zen Buddhist monk and authorized teacher in the Five Mountain Zen Order. He teaches Zen and meditation in Princeton, NJ, as well as high school English and online courses at Buddha Dharma University. .
As a genuine student and seeker of the truth, Andre considers himself a student of many contemplative traditions. After being deeply moved by the Neti-Neti process employed by the 20th-century sage Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj in his classic I Am That, Andre decided to develop it into a fully articulated meditation system. Neti-Neti Meditation reflects years of Andre's Zen training and deep meditative study.
Neti-Neti Meditation is a form of meditative introspection that eliminates who we think we are as a limited, separate person, and reveals our true nature as the formless, unconditioned Absolute itself, free of all imperfections and suffering. This book walks you step-by-step through the Neti-Neti process developed by Andre Doshim Halaw, Zen monk & meditation teacher.
