Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Piver (The Hard Questions) brings together the collective insight of six noted teachers of meditation in the Buddhist tradition, including Sakyong Mipham on tranquility, Larry Rosenberg on vipassana, and Sharon Salzberg on loving-kindness. For all the variety and richness of experience these teachers offer, there is a remarkable unity in the simplicity and focus of their brief essays. Both Buddhists and non-Buddhists will find this introduction brief and clear. For most collections. (Accompanying CD not heard.)
