Back Cover Blurb:
The Little Book of Buddhist Meditation is designed to help you establish a regular meditation practice. It is based on the Buddha's original teachings. You will be guided step-by-step through establishing a posture, and basic meditation techniques like breath counting, sweeping, the practice of loving-kindness, walking meditation, and the use of 'gathas,' or short poems. There is an explanation of chanting and how this can be used to establish the beginning of a sitting, to bring the mind into the present moment, and to reinforce the Buddha's teachings. There is also a description of what to do when problems occur and how to establish a regular routine. This guide is intended to help you develop a sense of well-being, calm, serenity, and confidence, for a foundation that will serve you for many years to come.
