This book brings together a broad range of
Buddhist meditative techniques that have appeared in the magazine over
the years. Contributors include some of the foremost voices in
contemporary Buddhism: Pema Chdrn starts our journey with an
inspirational
Foreword. Lama Surya Das explores the definition of
meditation, while Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein lay out a 28-day
program for establishing a daily practice. Wherever you are on your
search, you will find plenty of guidance in this book. Learn about
insight meditation from Bhante Henepola Gunaratana and Sylvia Boorstein.
Or about zazen from Barry Magid and Martine Batchelor. Gil Fronsdal
offers instruction in metta (lovingkindness) meditation, while Judith
Simmer-Brown teaches tonglen, a Tibetan Buddhist practice for
cultivating compassion. We also learn about the crucial role the body
plays in meditation from S. N. Goenka, Reginald Ray, Wes Nisker, and
Cyndi Lee. We receive guidance on managing issues that arise in
meditation from Jon Kabat-Zinn, Christina Feldman, Matthieu Ricard, Pat
Enkyo O'Hara and others. And there are practices for bringing
mindfulness and compassion to daily life from Thubten Chodron, Sayadaw U
Tejaniya and Michael Carroll.

Though targeted to the reader who would like to begin meditating, this
collection also offers support and guidance to the experienced meditator
working to sustain a lifelong practice. This is a guide to meditative
practice for any seeker wishing to deepen their understanding of
themselves and their world.
