Well put together,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Experience of Samadhi: An In-depth Exploration of Buddhist Meditation (Paperback)
The first part of the book is more of a scholastic work that documents the differing textual sources of what jhana is and is well put together in these terms.
The next part is a series of interviews which are effectively discussions on why people have different opinions about what samadhi is. As such I would not recommend it for a meditation practice manual but more for reading and interest around the subject but be wary of some of what the teachers he interviews say about jhana. I think its worth making the point that you probably will not get much of the sense of the Experience of Samadhi like the title suggests but more a sense of the contemporary debate around Samadhi.
