This handbag size full of wonder is an absolute must for everyone following a spiritual path and for those interested in various ways of self meditation. I bumped into this little gem at a book store when i was looking for a handbag size book that i could take out and read whenever i was waiting in a Q. Its the kind of book that you open on any random page and then you read, absorb and then ponder about what has been quoted. It teaches you the importance of awaresness and mindfulness throughout the day so that you will notice the simplest of things going on around you from the movement of a leaf swaying in the wind to the sound of background noise and people's body language around you. I found myself taking it out at train stations, ladies fitting rooms (theres always a Q when u want to try someting on) and as stated on the back cover its an "anytime, anywhere" book and with 3299 quotes and tips to choose from and ponder about you aint ever gonna be bored with this book of wisdom.

Everybody that comes to my house loves this book when i take it out and we end up having little discussions about certain quotes. So im ordering more today for members of my family before they pinch mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Find your meditation style 16 July 2007
By Mary McWilliams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Opening the tiny Self-Meditation: 3,299 Mantras, Tips,
Quotes, and Koans for Peace and Serenity is like taking the top off a beautifully wrapped box. Its alternating pastel-colored striped cover makes the book look like a present you'd want someone to give you. Inside, however, it's more like a jewel box.
Barbara Ann Kipfer, who is the author of the bestseller, 14,000 Things to Be Happy About, provides a style for whatever meditation mode you may need. If one style of meditation hasn't worked for you, don't give up. You'll find your niche with 3,299 choices. This one-inch thick, 6"x4" book will guide you and get you started. Open to any page and you will find a meditation to respond to. Perhaps reciting a mantra is your preferred method. Open to page 215 and you will find: "Meditation is my true nature now." Maybe you need guided visualization. The butterfly meditation on page 44 is a practice to an open heart. For those who dare to ponder the unanswerable, Kipfer's koans provide endless contemplation: "Where do north and south come from?". Kipfer adds mudras, affirmations, and tips to employ in daily life: "Treat simple, repetitive work like knitting, needlepoint, and even washing your face as meditation in action."
Although the great majority of meditations in this book could be considered non-denominational, Kipfer comes from a Buddhist state of mind and there is evidence of that throughout the book. Regardless of your religious affiliation, however, this is a beautiful little treasure trove of wisdom and advice to give yourself and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars a fabulous way to meditate anywhere! 19 Mar. 2007
By DarkAngel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love this book partly because it is great for people who are just starting out on their meditative/spiritual path. It is randomly speckled with creative, inspiring meditations, quotes relating to buddhism and zen, and mantras, perfect for virtually all real-life situations; from food, to yoga, to work (and viewing it as a part of the spiritual demension of the universe) to enjoying the true beauty of a garden, to simply breathing. Because it is small, I carry it in my purse for lunchtime, traffic jams, ect. It is a wonderful aid for relaxation and a "way to catch your inner breath and find the wellness and pleasures of mindfulness in every moment."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 22 Aug. 2007
By RazzleDazzle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am new to the whole idea of meditation, and this book I feel is the perfect starting point for anybody who is interested in meditating, or even just looking to find some good inspiration. I love it and I think anybody would. It's got some great tips for meditating, and is always positive and reminding you to be mindful of each moment of your life. Fantastic!

3.0 out of 5 stars So many great thoughts, but zero organization. I found it overwhelming. 21 Aug. 2009
By Shashi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is effectively a stream of consciousness, endless list of tips and quotes. They are not organized in any way, which I think is unfortunate. I love the idea of the book, but just found the whole thing overwhelming. Some of it is contradictory too. "Cultivate a spacious mind" is directly followed by "Take mental notes. Name your experiences as they unfold". I get that it's just basically a list of a lot of different collected ideas, but just wish it had been organized in a way to make it more user-friendly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Self-Meditation to fit your lifestyle 8 Oct. 2010
By bmae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don't have much time for lengthy meditation? Then this is the book for you. In the "Welcome" section, the author writes: "Remember not to pressure youself, to meditate for the length of time that makes sense within your lifestyle." I have had this book for over year and have not yet finished it because I have a busy lifestyle. To me, this book provides an oasis of peace. It is simple to use. You don't have to be a Zen Master to benefit from it. Learn how to find calm in the midst of everyday life, no matter how serious your problems are. Follow what the writings suggest and you might just change your life!
