Better than sex!" That's how Ajahn Brahm describes meditation, and his enthusiasm is contagious.

The Meditator's Handbook is a complete, stem-to-stern guide to the subject, with precise step-by-step instructions for traversing the stages of practice and overcoming obstacles."Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond is riveting, rollicking, and uncompromisingly real. Ajahn Brahm's voice is utterly fresh and compelling, in the greatest tradition of our beloved roshis and bhikkhus." Glenn Wallis, translator of the Dhammapada.

Meditation Advice to Beginners

Bokar Rinpoche

Bokar Rinpoche explores meditation, "Distracted by sense objects or by the succession of thoughts, our mind never remains stable in its own essence.
