Product description


"This is the book that started it all--the book that, with great clarity and ardor, introduced Vipassana and mindfulness to the West. I still have and cherish my dogeared, heavily underlined and annotated copy from way back when--with the price tag still on it: $3.00. Of course its content is timeless--and universal. All teachers of mindfulnessbased programs would do well to carefully read and reread this book and reflect upon the ways in which mindfulness is described in terms of both bare attention and clear comprehension." Jon KabatZinn, author of Mindfulness for Beginners and FullCatastrophe Living--Reviews

"It's wonderful to see this new edition of an invaluable, classic meditation guide. Nyanaponika Thera's The Heart of Buddhist Meditation is sure to benefit many." Sharon Salzberg, CoFounder of The Insight Meditation Society--Reviews

About the Author

Nyanaponika Thera (1901-1994) was a German-born Sri Lanka-ordained Theravada monk, cofounder of the Buddhist Publication Society, author of numerous books, and teacher of contemporary Western Buddhist leaders such as Bhikkhu Bodhi.
