A Meditator’s Life of the Buddha: Based on the Early Discourses
Anālayo offers an inspiring biography of the Buddha based on the early discourses and focusing on his meditative development and practice. By focusing on the Buddha as a meditator, Anālayo seeks to provide inspiration and guidance to all meditators, of any tradition and of any level of experience. Each of the twenty-four chapters concludes with suggestions to support meditative practice.
“Read this book slowly.
Savour it and let it sink in.
Make it a manual of practice.
Use the reflections to deepen your journey.
May the teachings, stories and practices here
bring you the blessings of the Buddha.”
-From the Foreword by Jack Kornfield
