Free e-book - Mindfulness Meditation for Beginners
There is no wrong way to meditate. If you want to go within, this is one of the best books out there about doing it.
And that's really the only goal in life, is to learn to love, and that means going within a connecting with the Higher Self. Excellent book and guide for a friend. So many positive benefits, Mine was pain relief at two different points in my life in addition to relaxation and stress reduction when needed. This book surprised me mostly because of it being a for "Dummies" edition.
This clearly written book is a comprehensive introduction on the subject of meditation and the many types of meditation. Its many meditation exercises that you can do on your own open the doorway to regular practice. The CD was disappointing, not in quality, but because the meditations are not recorded in separate tracks. This makes it is less usable if you want to pick and choose a certain meditation to do with the CD.
For that reason, I gave it 4 stars rather than 5. I would still purchase the book even knowing this and would recommend it to anyone interested in getting started with meditation or engaging in a more regular and rewarding meditation practice. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is a beautiful and deep book.
Stephan Bodian gently describes, with great simplicity, how to meditate with mindfulness and cultivate peace. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone. This is one of the best books on meditation. The author is taking a very unbiased approach, and puts a lot of emphasis on the essense of meditation rather than form.
Meditations by Emperor of Rome Marcus Aurelius
He gives a lot of practical advice for beginners and experienced meditators, and shows different methods and techniques, emphasizing that it's not really the method and technique that matters - choose whatever appeals to you and works for you - what's important is the personal transformation you go through, the state of mind you reach. He compares different meditations to different pathways up the same mountain of self discovery and inner peace.
Matara Sri Nanarama. A guide to the progressive stages of Buddhist meditation. Integral to the higher stages of purification are the nine types of insight-knowledge, by which the disciple breaks through the delusions covering his mental vision and penetrates through to the real nature of phenomena. Sayadaw U Jotika. This manuscript is an orginial, never previously published work. It is a transcript of a series of eleven preparatory talks given by Sayadaw U Jotika of Myanmar prior to a meditation retreat held in Australia.
The Sayadaw is very well respected in Mayanmar where he has produced many books. Although born and bred in Myanmar, Sayadaw U Jotika has a great understanding of many other cultures as he has also read widely in Western literature and has spent extented periods in other countries. This book gives a thorough background to the Path with much detail about the various insight stages. The Sayadaw illustrates this with many stories from his own practice and from his many teachers.
This is a 'how to' book. It teaches the liberation of the mind, not as a mind-boggling theory, but as a very basic skill that starts with keeping the breath in mind. The teachings here are drawn from the works of Ajaan Lee Dhammadharo , one of Thailand's most renowned teachers of Buddhist meditation practices.
Ajaan Lee was a forest monk - one who prefers to live in the seclusion of the forest and makes his meditation the central theme of his practice - so his teachings grow out of personal, practical experience, although he also makes a point of relating them to standard Buddhist doctrine.
The eBook also includes a section on the "Duties of the Sangha", that is, the laws and regulations and disciplinary standards Vinaya. Sayadaw U Kundala. Sayadaw U Kundala is a renowned meditation master in the Mahasi Sayadaw tradition of Burma, noted for his loving-kindness. In these Dhamma talks the stages of the practice and the Insight Knowledges are explained. The method of meditation is given with detailed instruction. There is a detailed explanation of the Contemplation of Feelings, the second foundation of mindfulness, which, in the Theravada tradition, is the key to the Insight Knowledges.
Overall, in the Sayadaw's teachings, there is much for the Vipassana or insight meditator to be inspired by. Thynn Thynn. The Path of Mindfulness in Daily Life. I wrote this book to encourage practitioners learning to meditate in daily life. In this sense, the articles are presented as a "hands-on" or, more accurately, a "minds-on" training manual.
Although I discuss meditation in general, the real focus is on how the Dhamma brings us into spontaneous, wholesome and creative living. My objective in presenting the articles is to help the aspirant build up a solid foundation of mindfulness as a way of life rather than as a practice separated from daily living - Dr.
This is a series of twenty-two talks given at Wat Bovornives, Bangkok by H. The Four Foundations of Mindfulness is the Buddha's explanation of the practice of mindfulness meditation within the framework of four foundations of awareness: If you read this book, you will discover the truth of the 'knots' and problems that exist within you.
In short, this can be described as the 'knot of suffering'. You may also then see the method to unravel and safeguard against this suffering. This is a compilation of Dhamma discourses to foreign meditators at the Mahasi Meditation Centre, Rangoon, Myanmar, who came to practise under him in Yangon formerly Rangoon between August to March Translated from Myanmar by the late Mya Thaung.
Ajahn Sumedho. The aim of this book is to provide a clear instruction in and reflection on Buddhist meditation as taught by Ajahn Sumedho, a bhikkhu monk of the Theravadin tradition. It has been edited from talks Ajahn Sumedho has given to meditators as a practical approach to the wisdom of Buddhism. This wisdom is otherwise known as Dhamma or 'the way things are'. It is a step-by-step manual on the practice of meditation.
This book contains two sections: Invitation to Vipassana and 2. Basic Instructions.
In the first part, I have endeavoured to explain: Vipassana meditation requires long-term commitment. While it can be done to some extent in everyday life, realistically for the practice to deepen it needs to be done intensively in a supportive retreat situation. Vipassana meditation is developmental, so to realise its ultimate benefit it has to be sustained with appropriate intensity under supportive conditions.
Pannyavaro, a practitioner of over 30 years, guides you through the vipassana experience in a retreat situation, in a systematic and practical way. Meditation is the intelligent heart of the Buddha's way; the only criterion is that you should apply it to daily life.
The purpose of this meditation course is not to create a system of beliefs, but rather to give guidance on how to see clearly into the nature of the mind. In this way, you can have firsthand understanding of the way things are, without reliance on opinions or theories - a direct experience, which has its own vitality.
This course has been prepared with both beginners and experienced practitioners in mind. This is a handbook on the art of meditative attention or meditating for insight. It deals with the basics of awareness meditation. There is practical instruction on how to do sitting and walking meditation and how to apply awareness in daily activities based on the Insight Meditation Vipassana tradition. The purpose of this handbook is to give the beginner to awareness meditation a guide to the basics of the practice, with the emphasis on its practical application to daily life.
Insight Meditation as explained by Ven. But we have got to start somewhere. After some years of introducing this type of meditation, I still find that there is a lack of introductory material for those without knowledge of Buddhism. What is available is often extremely technical and loaded with ancient Indian terminology.
There are some words in the English vocabulary which we can never hope to substitute perfectly. Sujiva is a clear and comprehensive step-by-step explanation of the systematic practice. The texts describe metta as characterised by promoting the aspect of welfare. Amity, goodwill, friendliness and loving-kindness are some words used to describe this mental state. There is no better way to know it than to study it as it occurs in one's own and others' minds.
It is a totally unselfish and pure state of mind that brings profit to oneself and others now and hereafter. Nyanaponika Thera. It is, indeed, the mark of a genius to perceive and to harness the power of the seemingly small.
Here, truly, it happens that, what is little becomes much.
A revaluation of values takes place. The standards of greatness and smallness change. Through the master mind of the Buddha, mindfulness is finally revealed as the point where the vast revolving mass of world suffering is levered out of its twofold anchorage in ignorance and craving".
Four sublime states of mind have been taught by the Buddha: Loving-kindness metta , Compassion karuna , Sympathetic Joy mudita , Equanimity upekkha These four attitudes are said to be excellent or sublime because they are the right or ideal way of conduct towards living beings They provide, in fact, the answer to all situations arising from social contact.
They are the great removers of tension, the great peacemakers in social conflict, and the great healers of wounds suffered in the struggle of existence. They level social barriers, build harmonious communities, awaken slumbering magnanimity long forgotten, revive joy and hope long abandoned, and promote human brotherhood against the forces of egotism.
This "Brahmavihara Dhamma" Divine Abidings expounded by the late Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw, reveals the systematic method of developing Metta, loving-kindness towards all beings and the way to lead a life of holiness.
