Personally i find Bodhipaksas voice very calming and easy to listen to, which is a bonus when trying to do guided meditations. Like all his previous CD's this one is an excellent product. At just over 2 hours long this really is well worth the price.

The following is copied from the official blurb from Wildmind Meditation:

This product is a two-CD audiobook of Bodhipaksa's teachings on how an awareness of the breath can help us break through into an awakened perspective. By exploring three meditation practices, Bodhipaksa reveals how the breath can help you:
*Let go of the past and future, and rest in pure presence
*Dissolve the sense of separateness to experience oneness with the world around you
*Embrace the essential impermanence of all life with serenity and joy
*Tap into your own natural wisdom by exploring the breath as a metaphor for living

Bodhipaksa has an absolutely beautiful voice. It is everything you need to keep you focussed but relaxed.

It's a very well thought out CD set. You have his lecture on the first one which is interesting even if like me you don't buy in to absolutely every part of it. You really get a sense that he genuinely cares about this life practice and that sincerity comes through his voice.

I also particularly liked the length of each meditation ranging from around 18 minutes to 21 minutes. There are also lots of expertly timed gaps within the mediation which really helps you to sink deeper in to it. And as his voice picks you up again - it's not at all intrusive. And it's nicely timed in terms of one to the next (there are 3 meditations on here). So if like me you don't want to do them all in one go - you have plenty of time to come back out of your meditation, enjoy the moment and then press stop on your player!

I gave this 4 stars simply because the track listing is only on the cd's themselves. I wish they'd put the track listing on the cd box too! Or had a leaflet with it or something. Yes I know I'm nit picking! I perhaps need to meditate more!

I am a relatively novice meditation practitioner, but am always 'on the look out' for new slants on the practice...and new meditation CDs. I happened upon Bodhipaksa via another web site...and thought that I would give him a go.
Hmmmm.....whilst I have enjoyed using the actual meditations for my practice purposes, I don't know if I would recommend the 'life story' part of the CD.
Do purchase if you want to try some 'different' angles within your practice and if you are seriously investigating Buddhism. Don't purchase if you are a complete beginner.
