Opening the tiny Self-Meditation: 3,299 Mantras, Tips,
Quotes, and Koans for Peace and Serenity is like taking the top off a beautifully wrapped box. Its alternating pastel-colored striped cover makes the book look like a present you'd want someone to give you. Inside, however, it's more like a jewel box.
Barbara Ann Kipfer, who is the author of the bestseller, 14,000 Things to Be Happy About, provides a style for whatever meditation mode you may need. If one style of meditation hasn't worked for you, don't give up. You'll find your niche with 3,299 choices. This one-inch thick, 6"x4" book will guide you and get you started. Open to any page and you will find a meditation to respond to. Perhaps reciting a mantra is your preferred method. Open to page 215 and you will find: "Meditation is my true nature now." Maybe you need guided visualization. The butterfly meditation on page 44 is a practice to an open heart. For those who dare to ponder the unanswerable, Kipfer's koans provide endless contemplation: "Where do north and south come from?". Kipfer adds mudras, affirmations, and tips to employ in daily life: "Treat simple, repetitive work like knitting, needlepoint, and even washing your face as meditation in action."
Although the great majority of meditations in this book could be considered non-denominational, Kipfer comes from a Buddhist state of mind and there is evidence of that throughout the book. Regardless of your religious affiliation, however, this is a beautiful little treasure trove of wisdom and advice to give yourself and others.

I love this book partly because it is great for people who are just starting out on their meditative/spiritual path. It is randomly speckled with creative, inspiring meditations, quotes relating to buddhism and zen, and mantras, perfect for virtually all real-life situations; from food, to yoga, to work (and viewing it as a part of the spiritual demension of the universe) to enjoying the true beauty of a garden, to simply breathing. Because it is small, I carry it in my purse for lunchtime, traffic jams, ect. It is a wonderful aid for relaxation and a "way to catch your inner breath and find the wellness and pleasures of mindfulness in every moment."

I carry this book with me everywhere. The mantras never get old and it is a life saver when you are having a bad day, get angry or just impatient with life. I take this book out and read a bit of it and it makes me happy and calm.

This a wonderful book filled with simple yet powerful reminders of ways to shift your focus and attitude. I had discovered this gem at the local library and simply had to own a copy myself. I amusingly call it a "magic book", since I can randomly open to a page and find suggestions that are right on target to my needs. It is so chock-full of practical ideas that remind you that meditation is not just limited to sitting in silence. For me, it is a blueprint for a more peaceful life.

Love this book. I keep it handy and pick it up a few times a week. I have incorporated some of the meditations and breathing reminders into my yoga classes. This book helps to keep you present in the moment and stop and just be.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes to think about life a little deeper.

I am new to the whole idea of meditation, and this book I feel is the perfect starting point for anybody who is interested in meditating, or even just looking to find some good inspiration. I love it and I think anybody would. It's got some great tips for meditating, and is always positive and reminding you to be mindful of each moment of your life. Fantastic!

The book is effectively a stream of consciousness, endless list of tips and quotes. They are not organized in any way, which I think is unfortunate. I love the idea of the book, but just found the whole thing overwhelming. Some of it is contradictory too. "Cultivate a spacious mind" is directly followed by "Take mental notes. Name your experiences as they unfold". I get that it's just basically a list of a lot of different collected ideas, but just wish it had been organized in a way to make it more user-friendly.

Don't have much time for lengthy meditation? Then this is the book for you. In the "Welcome" section, the author writes: "Remember not to pressure youself, to meditate for the length of time that makes sense within your lifestyle." I have had this book for over year and have not yet finished it because I have a busy lifestyle. To me, this book provides an oasis of peace. It is simple to use. You don't have to be a Zen Master to benefit from it. Learn how to find calm in the midst of everyday life, no matter how serious your problems are. Follow what the writings suggest and you might just change your life!
