This book is not about meditation; it is one on how to meditate. All too many books offer readers sparse instructions given in general terms. Trouble is that would-be meditators find it difficult to sit still for 5 minutes, let alone 20. In this classic work, author and teacher Justin F. Stone presents easy to follow instructions for many common forms of meditation, including Zazen (Zen Meditation), Japa (one of the oldest spiritual practises in India), Satipatthana (Mindfulness), Nei Kung (Buddhist Meditation) and Tibetan meditations. Meditation can be a powerful tool to improve health, sharpen concentration, reduce stress and enhance spirituality. THE JOY OF MEDITATION was created as a simple book of instructions for using that tool. By concentrating on the practice itself, and not on the dogma, readers will be able to choose those methods of meditation best suited to meet their individual needs.
