A Meditator's Bible,
This review is from: A Path with Heart (Paperback)
I was recommended to read this book many years ago but it took me a couple of years to really take notice and buy it. Then I regretted the long period of time without it! I use it regularly. There are sections on so many of the things that come up in a meditators practice - and I also have friends who find that they just look up the chapter headings and get the answers they need. Jack Kornfield is a very experienced meditator and teacher and there is a wealth of guidance and insight in this book. I tell my own students that they cannot do without it and they admit they keep in close at hand and take it on retreat with them. It applies whatever tradition you are in and there are accounts from Christians and Hindus and Buddhists and people who are just meditating and needing help. A superb book.
