Format: Kindle Edition
If interested in Indo-Tibetan Buddhist meditation, I'd really recommend "The Stages of Meditation" by the Dalai Lama, or anything by B. Alan Wallace who's a master at uniting Western and Indo-Tibetan Buddhist perspectives. There's over 2,500 years worth of books covering the stages of meditation according to Buddhism, and life is short. This book isn't worth the time or money when there are so many other resources available. And to be honest, Ms. Mcnally self-ascribes the term "Lama," when most of the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist community doesn't see her filling that role. Being that she's simply the girlfriend of a Western monk kind of detracts from any credibility that she may have. Most of the rave reviews for this text simply come from direct students of her and Michael Roach. I'd recommend checking out what others in the Buddhist world think before spending time with this book.

Format: Paperback
The picture of the bald monk in bad times, along with the title of the book inspired my imagination of what I may learn and experience. But the book is poor. I now meditate regularly. I can confidently say, after all the other books I have read and techniques I have learned, that this book doesn't teach anything. I'm surprised it was published. I felt like I was sifting through the pages of a journal written by a mental patient that might be able to show you something about yourself that no one else has yet to do. And she did. She showed me that I can be perfectly fine with some books going into a book burning wagon.

Please be advised that this author is the victim of a cult. It is sad and I do hope she is able to see her way through.

Format: Paperback
This was the first book I have ever read on meditation and I'm glad it was. The progressive nature of the meditations (starting small then getting into more advanced and deeper meditations later) is a great set up. It's easy to follow, especially for a newcomer (I have done audio guided meditations but they lack the depth that this book has).

There is a lot of good advice that doesn't just pertain to meditation either. If you are intermediate or advanced in Buddhist knowledge or meditation then you may not gain as much from this but if you are a novice or brand new, you have quite a bit to gain.

As a bit of side advice, I combine my meditations with Tibetan Singing Bowls and it really helps, just in case you're looking for a boost.

I do like the meditations but... and this is a big BUT... the fundamental "Buddhist" logic the book is based on, I find to be very flawed. I would not recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning about Buddhism or Buddhist meditation. There are many much more accurate books about the religion. If your interested in this book I would probably recommend borrowing it from a library before spending money on it.

After returning a multitude of times to my meditation practice finally a book that not just points the way but almost drags you out of bed to the cushion. Seriously if you want to learn how to really meditate in a practical manner this is the book. It walks you through what has been years of study for me and many others. I feeling like a beginner again and loving it.

You would be so lucky and blessed if this is the first guide you ever try for meditation. Then going forward if you move onto other books you will realise just how amazing this one is. Nothing compares.

I very much enjoyed going through this book. As someone that's brand new to meditation, it was nice to have a book that eases you into the different types of meditation ultimately introducing you to the huge concepts such as emptiness. I never felt as if this book was trying to teach me everything, but it was thorough enough to give me a taste and lay a solid groundwork for my search into spirituality.

Over the years of reading meditation books I've become a bit jaded. It seems most meditation books are either impractical or inauthentic. I can truly say that the Tibetan Book of Meditation is both practical as a meditation guide and authentic in its source. Practical because not only is the philosophy of meditation explained clearly and simply but because there are step-by-step meditation instructions for numerous topics that are the cornerstones of Buddhism. The book's content is also authentic which seems to be rare with so many new age meditation books on the market. The material presented comes from a true historical lineage from the Tibetans, back to ancient India and the Buddha. From studying Buddhism with great Tibetan Lamas I can say that this book is the real deal.
