This is clearly the most helpful guide to meditation that I have ever read. Bodhipaksa's careful explanation of the meditative process eliminates much of the wonder and mystery we have about it.

Use of this book can help to make meditation a valuable tool for taking charge of our lives.

I have read many books on meditation and this was by far the most clear and concise book of them all. I especially enjoyed the mindfulness of breathing chapter. The author gives a step by step process on how to get to one pointed concentration, whereas most other authors begin there. I highly recommend this book for anyone serious about starting or enhancing their meditation practice.

Agree. This book can help to meditate for people who know what meditation is. I don't think all who read this one know what meditation is. It's better to read something about spirituality and meditation generally. Two or three books. and only then begin to read books like Wildmind. For example try to start from a crossing or the drop's history by Anatoliy Obraztsov. It's a very easy book what explain your a lot.
