  1. While numerous works on Buddhist meditation are available today, there is still a need for an accessible and understandable handbook. This book is precisely such an exhaustive work. By presenting some of the basic methods,it offers us a detailed map with clear instructions about the path leading to tranquillity and insight. The book is the fruit of the author’s many years’ experience of meditation and teaching, with a wealth of advice – for those who are taking their first steps on the path, as well as more experienced practitioners.
