The bestselling, classic guide to insight meditation! is a book that people give to everyone they know--a book that people talk about, write about, think about, and return to repeatedly.
With his distinctive clarity and wit, "Bhante G" takes us step by step through the myths, realities, and benefits of meditation and the practice of mindfulness. We already have the foundation we need to live a more productive and peaceful life--Bhante simply points to each tool of meditation, tells us what it does, and how to make it work.
This expanded edition includes the complete text of its bestselling predecessor, as well as a new chapter on the cultivation of lovingkindness, an especially important subject in today's fractious world.
Bhante Gunaratana was ordained at the age of 12 as a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka, earned his Ph.D. in philosophy from The American University, and has led meditation retreats, taught Buddhism, and lectured widely throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. He lives in High View, West Virginia. Bhante Henepola Gunaratana is the president of the Bhavana Society in West Virginia.
