Publisher's Summary

Meditation offers many benefits: increased self-discipline and concentration, new spiritual insights, compassion for other living beings. But there are so many forms of meditation, choosing one can be stressful! Examine five different meditations - Mantra, Vipassana, Loving Kindness, Karma Yoga, and Kabbalah - and decide which works best for you. Shinzen Young is an ordained Buddhist monk who's spent a lifetime studying Eastern cultures and is now the director of the Community Meditation Center of Los Angeles.

Five How To's

This is a MUST HAVE for anyone who meditates or wants to! These are not guided meditations where the listener is passive to the speaker. The Honorable Shinzen Young presents FIVE METHODS of meditation which are easy to initially understand and which provide a lifetime of spiritual practice to those who will follow his guidelines. I was fortunate to receive this information first hand in a class with him in 1987 as part of my ministerial training. I have used his techniques, and have taught with his recording. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!

Annoying background music

I always listen to the audio sample of each meditation book before I buy it, because I don't like gimmicky "mood" music playing in the background, as if I were at a spa for a facial. This one fooled me because the audio sample was from the lecture part of the book, which doesn't have the background music that plays during the guided meditations. It's a flute solo, like meditating with a whining mosquito in the room.
