What Is Meditation? Buddhism for Everyone

Nairn, Rob

Nairn, a Buddhist in the Tibetan tradition trained by, among others, the Dalai Lama and the Gyalwa Karmapa, has written a very capable guide to the essentials of modern Mahayana Buddhism and its derivative meditational practices. Inevitably influenced by Western ideas, Nairn's text is nevertheless a clearly written, engaging, and respectful primer in both the religious attitudes and the spiritual practices of Buddhists in the Tibetan tradition. This should prove a helpful reminder for practitioners and a ready guide for beginners. Recommended for most collections strong in religious studies.

Be an Island The Buddhist Practice of Inner Peace

Ayya Kemma

Khema's work is the last offering of an American-born Buddhist nun who died in 1997; her calm, soberly written treatise reviews the path to enlightenment as a form of the search for personal and inner peace. Yun provides valuable insight into the distinct practices and traditions of Chinese Buddhism, still little known in the West. Both of these publications are recommended for libraries where interest in Eastern spirituality is strong.

Still The Mind, An Introduction to Meditation

Watts, Alan W

During the last decade of his life, Alan Watts lectured extensively as he traveled across the country. He often accompanied his talks with guided meditation sessions and contemplative rituals designed to instruct his audiences in the art of meditation; Still the Mind is drawn from recordings of those lectures, meditations, and rituals. Watts's son Mark edited more than 800 hours of audiotapes to create this compilation of his father's teachings. The tape features Alan Watts's thoughts on the purity of everyday experience and the path of soulful contemplation. It concludes with Watts leading a variety of sitting meditations. Still the Mind gives listeners insight into the essence of meditation, which Watts defined as the art of being completely centered in the here and now.

Khema's work is the last offering of an American-born Buddhist nun who died in 1997; her calm, soberly written treatise reviews the path to enlightenment as a form of the search for personal and inner peace. Yun provides valuable insight into the distinct practices and traditions of Chinese Buddhism, still little known in the West.
