You will be guided step-by-step through establishing a posture, and basic meditation techniques like breath counting, sweeping, the practice of loving-kindness, walking meditation, and the use of "gathas", or short poems. There is also an explanation of chanting and how this can be used to establish the beginning of a sitting, to bring the mind into the present moment, and to reinforce the Buddha's teachings. There is also a description of what to do when problems occur, and how to establish a regular routine. This guide is intended to help you develop a sense of well-being, calm, serenity, and confidence, for a foundation that will serve you for many years to come.

Updated, revised, with a new cover, new trim size, and illustrations throughout, the national bestseller The Little Zen Companion, with 516,000 copies in print, is repackaged for a new generation of seekers as The Little Book of Zen. A perfect gift and book of discovery, its maverick spirit celebrates ideas drawn from Zen Buddhism that have tremendous currency today: mindfulness, meditation, compassion, paying attention to the here and now, and finding a deeper meaning in life. While it seeks neither to define Zen nor answer its most famous koan (“What is the sound of one hand clapping?”), The Little Book of Zen points to a calming way of looking at the world. Each page features a quote, phrase, story, koan, haiku, or poem, interspersed with essays on the Buddha, Zen arts, significant masters, and more. The feeling is that of a meditation book with 2,500 years of wisdom—from Lao-tzu to Lily Tomlin. It’s a celebration of intuition: “If a man wishes to be sure of the road he treads on, he must close his eyes and walk in the dark.”—St. John the Cross. Individuality: “Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought.”—Basho. And self-discovery: “We already have everything we need.”—Pema Chödrön. New material is taken from contemporary spiritual leaders, writers, meditation teachers, and others with an emphasis on the practice of mindfulness—on the heart, rather than the head. Pen and ink illustrations from the author bring an additional layer of feeling and beauty.

One of the great challenges for Western Buddhists is how to take a meditation practice and bring it into daily living. Monks and nuns have every aspect of their lives governed by the monastic code, the Vinaya. This makes their lives simpler. The monastic life is optimized for developing the path. In Asia, traditionally lay Buddhists do not meditate. They followed the Five Ethical Precepts, practice generosity by supporting the monastic Sangha, and they go to the temple or monastery on Uposatha Days. But in the West we have a mode of practice that lies somewhere between the monastic model and the Asian lay model. Western Buddhists are mainly lay people. But we do meditate, and we aspire to many of the life ideals of monks and nuns. The Vinaya does not provide a lot of guidance to Western Buddhists in our daily lives. But the Buddha does give some guidance, especially in the Sigaalaka Sutta: Advice to Lay People. The Little Book of Buddhist Daily Living has discussions on various aspects of life, such as work, caring for our bodies and minds, working with difficult people, how we relate to money, eating, consumption, speech, politics, community, and death. This book also stresses important qualities to cultivate such as kindness, patience, and simplicity. The goal is to make Buddhist living a part of every moment of every day. In this way we cultivate the path, becoming happier, more skillful people in the world.

When a dozen young boys found themselves trapped in Tham Luang cave in June 2018 in Northern Thailand with their 25-year-old coach, their chances of survival seemed very slim. They had only a handful of snacks they'd bought for one of the boys' birthday that day, and no drinking water. Not only that, while they sat there, waiting, the level of the water in the cave was rising all the time. Also, unbeknownst to them, the oxygen level was dropping. Trapped in darkness and unaware of the desperate search efforts going on in the outside world, the Wild Boys coach, Ekkapol Chanthawong, felt it was his responsibility to do everything he could to keep them alive. One of the survival tactics he implemented was getting them all to meditate. Ekkapol had trained for ten years to be a Buddhist monk in a temple in Northern Thailand. He could meditate for an hour at a time, and knew of the countless benefits that came with such a practice. This book explains how meditation within the framework of Bhavana works, why it's something we should all be doing, and how to do it. Bhavana - which refers to mental and spiritual development - is the cultivation of wisdom and tranquility through meditation. It is the means to developing resilience and strength that will serve when it is most needed. This book makes Bhavana accessible and practical by distilling the insights of thousands of years of tradition. It integrates the teachings and practices with the most recent neuroscience of how our brains and behavior can change to give us the tools to withstand suffering and fear.

A practical guide to experiencing natural awareness—an effortless and spacious state of resting in the depth or our being. Do you recall, as a child, being enthralled by a drifting cloud, a rain-soaked leaf, a wandering ladybug? Or suddenly having a sense of timelessness, contentment, and ease? If so, then you've already had a taste of natural awareness. Known and revered in many traditions as a complement to focused mindfulness training, natural awareness transcends even these wondrous childhood moments. Some describe it as a profound “awareness of awareness”—an effortless, boundless state of resting in the depth of our being. For those new to meditation and experienced meditators alike, these 72 “mini-chapters” guide you on an in-depth odyssey into natural awareness, illuminated by many simple and enjoyable insights and exercises. The Little Book of Being invites you to explore: The spectrum of awareness practices, from focused mindfulness to flexible mindfulness to natural awareness How classical mindfulness and effortless natural awareness enrich and shape each other, and how to practice both Three ways to move into natural awareness—relaxing effort, broadening awareness, and dropping objects A treasury of “glimpse practices” to spark natural awareness anytime, in just a few moments How to bring this way of “simply being” into your daily life, into your connection with others, and into the world “At first natural awareness may seem far away, just a whisper, but then it will begin to grow and expand and permeate aspects of living. Over time we may feel more peace, more connection to ourselves. We may find ourselves taking life a bit more lightly. We may feel a sense of relaxed ‘beingness’ throughout the day, and when we do get caught in our dramas, we may find ourselves moving out of them quicker than we imagined we could.” —Diana Winston
