Overview

In Joyful Mind, a variety of Buddhist meditation styles are presented, each by a respected teacher. The practices they offer are grounded in traditions that are thousands of years old. If you were to visit monasteries in India, Tibet, Japan, or Burma, these are the teachings you would receive. As a bonus, we've also included yoga instruction to prepare the body for sitting.

In addition to the written teachings, Joyful Mind offers the opportunity to actually sample the practices directly. On the first compact disc in this book, each teacher guides you through the practice they've written about. The second is a music-only disc featuring contemplative flute music perfect for relaxation and contemplation.

May these practices be of benefit.
