Here is the definitive how to guide for meditation Loori s perspective is Zen, but it doesn t matter for this.There are many books on how to meditate, but this is the clearest, and most concise method book I ve seen I love this book. Reading the second half containing the Dharma Discourse was incredibly enlightening. Through Zen Meditation It Is Possible To Find Stillness Of Mind, Even Amidst Our Everyday Activities And This Practical Book And CD Set Reveals How John Daido Loori, One Of America S Leading Zen Teachers, Offers Everything Needed To Begin A Meditation Practice He Covers The Basics Of Where To Sit On A Cushion, Bench, Or Chair , How To Posture The Body Complete With Instructional Photographs , And How To Practice Zen Meditation To Discover The Freedom Of A Peaceful MindBook With Audio CD The beginning of the book was especially helpful, as it outlined how to properly sit zazen in a clear and informative way A pretty good book for me, as a beginner. I really enjoyed how straight and to the point this book was in defining terms and explaining how to meditate I appreciate that the author explains the process and how to improve and over time Most of it was easy to understand and apply The second half of the book got a little confusing to me at times The jump from the straighforward to the philosophical was a bit difficult to follow with little transition This book does come with a CD, which helps a great deal in understanding the process. Very helpful to learn how to meditate the proper way It is still nice to have a teacher The conclusion is a little hard to follow if you have been practicing Christianity for a long time. A brief introduction to guided and unguided self or solitary meditation Free of clutter and flowery talk, it gets down to the business of how to meditate properly Not only is the book an excellent and easy read without a lot of hyperbole and metaphysical mysticism mumbo jumbo, but it comes with a CD that will help guide you as well Another to add to my spiritual reference library Short, sweet and to the point No mumbo jumbo no airy platitudes here, just a stright forward how t guide for the beginner with a cd to help along the way One of the clearest instructional materials I have read and a useful and interesting dharma talk to end it off A great little starter To study the Buddha Way is to study the self,To study the self is to forget the self,To forget the self is to be enlightened by the ten thousand things Dogen nice, concise description of how to sit zen meditation simple to read His instructions make meditation accessible to all Also has a short concluding chapter on buddhist teaching Perfect for beginners as well as those who have meditated for a while but need a reminder of nothing
