Product Description

Review

The teachings of the Buddha are always fresh and apt, and Bodhipaksa has a canny way of making them so for us. He teaches here the best prescription I know for true happiness. What could be more basic, and totally transformative, than conscious breathing, mindful sitting and walking, and opening the heart? Wildmind brings us directly to that awakened wisdom of our true nature. --Gary Gach, author of 'The Complete Idiot's Guide to Buddhism'.

Of great help to people interested in meditation and an inspiring reminder to those on the path. --Joseph Goldstein, co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society and author of 'One Dharma: The Emerging Western Buddhism'

Bodhipaksa has written a beautiful and very accessible introduction to meditation. He guides us through all the basics of mindfulness and also loving-kindness meditations with the voice of a wise, kind, and patient friend. --Dr. Lorne Ladner, author of 'The Lost Art of Compassion'

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have looked at numerous books and CDs recently to help me get started with a meditation practice, and this is by far the very best. In fact I have sold all the others, but this one I shall definitely be keeping. As well as very easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, there are sections answering questions you might have concerning the practices. I would recommend you have an online look at the "Table of Contents" in the "Inside this Book" section, as this will amaze you with the many different topics the book covers. The only niggle I have is with the silly size of the book. I know this is to prevent it being read like a novel, but it continually annoyed me as the book flopped around between my lap, and reading it made my hands tired and uncomfortable after a while. But the book is so exceptionally useful I can overlook the design faults! If you are a beginner and want to learn Buddhist meditation, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. To begin with, it's the most beautifully produced introduction to meditation I've ever seen. The text is easy to read, the layout is clear and uncluttered and the accompanying photographs are breathtakingly beautiful. If you wanted a coffee-table book about meditation, you need look no further than Wildmind - simply handling the book could make you feel relaxed and at peace with the world. But of course it's much more than that. As a guide to meditation it comes with an impressive track record on several levels. The material in the book is based on Bodhipaksa's on-line meditation resource, also called Wildmind, of which I, for one, am already a satisfied 'customer' (that's why I needed no prompting to buy this book on the day it was published, and how I already know that if you want it to, what it contains could help you change your life, as it has done for me). That material in turn is based on Bodhipaksa's own experience of meditation over a period of more than 20 years, both as a practitioner and as a teacher. And as if that weren't enough, the techniques he introduces have themselves been tried and tested over the 2 ½ millennia since the Buddha first taught them - they have already worked for millions of people across space and time, who have found in meditation one of the essential keys to happiness and spiritual growth.
The personal experience of teaching and practice on which the material in this book is based shines through on every page. Bodhipaksa is confident enough to be refreshingly honest about the ups and downs of his own experience, and that in itself gives the book an immediate appeal for the new meditator - you feel as though you have a trusted mentor at your side whenever you need advice or encouragement.

I have found this book well structured, easy to read. The step-by-step details of the process were easy to follow as I was learning and continue to learn. There were good photos explaining the postures, which I found invaluable. I continue to dip into the book for inspiration and reminders of where I need to improve. I'm sure this will become a classic helpful both to the beginner and those who have been meditating for a while. A good buy!

This is a fantastic book thanks to its clear writing, its unambiguous explanations of meditation techniques and the way Bodhipaksa introduces little exercises and ideas to make this a worthwhile read. Since reading it, my meditation has been 'turbo charged' after years of chugging along ineffectually and my doubts and confusions about many issues have been swept away. Buy this without hesitation.

Contains all the information you need to practice and improve on mindfulness of breathing meditation, metta bhavana and walking meditation. The only negative point is that sometimes the pages are not ordered very logically but all the information is there somewhere.
