The Best $5 I've Ever Spent,
By A Customer
This review is from: How to Meditate: A Guide to Self-Discovery (Paperback)
I wanted to begin practicing meditation again after some years of absence, and wanted a different approach than the Transcendental Meditation I learned in college. I stumbled onto this little book, and it has been absolutely wonderful. It's an overview, and they'll tell you it's just for beginners, but a year later, and probably 10 more "sophisticated" books later, and a lot of time spent meditating, I find myself coming back to LeShan time and time again. He drifts a bit into speculation about the paranormal, but for the most part his teaching is direct, simple, applicable and inspiring. If I was forced to choose only one meditation book from my shelf, this "basic" and wonderful book would probably be the one.
