A Whole Book on Meditation by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Postby Goob » Sat Jan 19, 2013 9:55 pm

Hey!

Since ven. Thanissaro's last book on mindfulness and Sati got so much attention here on the boards I thought I'd link to his new book dealing more specifically with the intricacies of his particular method of meditation - 'With Each & Every Breath'! Published a couple of days ago, it's a real page-turner, I'm sure.

“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

Thanks a lot for pointing this out. This looks very good, and covers jhana practice, which is not as common in meditation manuals I have seen.

I've been waiting for him to make a book like this. As much as I appreciate his constant quoting of the Suttas, it gives the book a disjointed feeling.
