Overview

“Of great help to people interested in meditation and an inspiring reminder to those on the path.”Joseph Goldstein, co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society and author of One Dharma: The Emerging Western Buddhism

“Bodhipaksa has written a beautiful and very accessible introduction to meditation. He guides us through all the basics of mindfulness and also loving-kindness meditations with the voice of a wise, kind, and patient friend.”-Dr. Lorne Ladner, author of The Lost Art of Compassion

The aim of Buddhist meditation is to clear away the "defilements" so that we can experience ourselvesmore deeply and more trulyin our primordial purity, clarity, and freedom of mind. Meditation helps us to cut through the agonizing clutter of superficial mental turmoil and allows us to experience more spacious and joyful states of mind. It is this pure and luminous state that I call your Wildmind.

From how to build your own meditation stool to how a raisin can help you meditate, this illustrated guide explains everything you need to know to start or deepen your meditation practice. This bestseller is in a new handy format and features brand-new illustrations.

Bodhipaksa is a Buddhist practitioner, writer, and teacher, and he is the founder of www.wildmind.org, an online meditation resource. He lives in New Hampshire with his family and conducts classes at Aryaloka Buddhist Center in Newmarket, New Hampshire.
