What would happen if you were to allow everything to be exactly as it is? If you gave up the need for control, and instead embraced the whole of your experience in each moment that arose? In the 14 years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as "an end instead of a means to an end." What he ultimately realized was that only when you let go of all techniques—even the concept of yourself as a meditator—will you open to the art of True Meditation, dwelling in the natural state. True Meditation invites you to join the growing number of seekers who have been touched by the wisdom of Adyashanti to learn: How to make the "effortless effort" that will vivify the present moment Meditative self-inquiry and "The Way of Subtraction": how to ask a spiritually powerful question—and determine the real answer "We've been taught that awakening is difficult," explains Adyashanti, "that to wake up from the illusion of separation takes years. But all it really takes is a willingness to look into the depths of your experience here and now." True Meditation gives you the opportunity to reclaim the original purpose of meditation—as a gateway to "the objectless freedom of being."

These selections present the core of Krishnamurti's teaching on meditation, taken from discussions with small groups, as well as from public talks to large audiences. His main theme is the essential need to look inward, to know ourselves, in order really to understand our own—and the world's—conflicts. We are the world, says Krishnamurti, and it is our individual chaos that creates social disorder. He offers timeless insights into the source of true freedom and wisdom.

Discover your True Nature… through Self-Meditation Today, the word Meditation has been confined to practices of mindfulness, concentration exercises, relaxation techniques and contemplation. However, these are mere by-products in a journey that leads to the ultimate purpose of true meditation. Truly speaking, the essence of meditation is not the techniques, but the clear realization of who-we-truly-are. The practice of meditation with right understanding leads us to transcend the limiting beliefs and tendencies of the mind and stabilize in pure consciousness. This book is one in the ‘Ocean in a drop’ Series. Through a series of conversations between seekers of truth and Sirshree, this book expounds the deeper understanding that lends completeness to the path of meditation. 100% Meditation dispels prevalent myths about meditation, identifies the roadblocks in the journey and unravels the heart of meditation, leading to the sublime state of unshakable peace and bliss.

Why Buddhism Is True

From one of America’s most brilliant writers, a New York Times bestselling journey through psychology, philosophy, and lots of meditation to show how Buddhism holds the key to moral clarity and enduring happiness. At the heart of Buddhism is a simple claim: The reason we suffer—and the reason we make other people suffer—is that we don’t see the world clearly. At the heart of Buddhist meditative practice is a radical promise: We can learn to see the world, including ourselves, more clearly and so gain a deep and morally valid happiness. In this “sublime” (The New Yorker), pathbreaking book, Robert Wright shows how taking this promise seriously can change your life—how it can loosen the grip of anxiety, regret, and hatred, and how it can deepen your appreciation of beauty and of other people. He also shows why this transformation works, drawing on the latest in neuroscience and psychology, and armed with an acute understanding of human evolution. This book is the culmination of a personal journey that began with Wright’s landmark book on evolutionary psychology, The Moral Animal, and deepened as he immersed himself in meditative practice and conversed with some of the world’s most skilled meditators. The result is a story that is “provocative, informative and...deeply rewarding” (The New York Times Book Review), and as entertaining as it is illuminating. Written with the wit, clarity, and grace for which Wright is famous, Why Buddhism Is True lays the foundation for a spiritual life in a secular age and shows how, in a time of technological distraction and social division, we can save ourselves from ourselves, both as individuals and as a species.

Monks Are From Meditating Monkeys

"This extraordinary book unveils the scientific source of true spirituality. A vision of reality emerges when the brain is in the grip of “near-death” frenzy. The dominant ego declines and consciousness shifts to the right side of the brain. True mystics like Ramana Maharshi meditated up on the dazzling vision and reached “nirvana”, the culmination of spiritual quest. The god men, who sell yoga, meditation, and salvation, are self-centered mimics with inflated ego and greed. The facts now revealed by brain scans might debunk the divine comedy of fake monks misleading the masses? Drug-induced euphoria of “Meditating Monkeys” cannot take humans to lasting bliss and calmness. The only authentic route to sustainable spiritual transformation is shifting consciousness through egoless meditation. Universal compassion is the prominent expression of true enlightenment. The transition of mystics from the ordinary to the sublime can motivate the modern youth to achieve similar awakening. This book shows the reality but faiths may deny it with divine deceptions."

As yoga gains popularity across the U.S., many people are becoming interested in its traditional Vedic roots. While Buddhist meditation is well represented on bookshelves, there has been little Vedantic philosophy written in lay terms until now. Author David Frawley guides readers through the challenges of cultivating awareness, calming the mind, and practicing meditation according to Vedanta and Hinduism. He examines how cultural knowledge systems in the West lead individuals to disillusionment, and speaks about how meditation can aid in understanding the true nature of one's thoughts, emotions, and perceptions. Frawley explores meditation support practices such as yoga, mantras, kundalini, and pranayama, as well as the role of gurus, and concludes with a short, more technical essay on self-inquiry.

"Kodo Sawaki was one of the most respected Zen masters of 20th century Japan. He had a profound understanding Dogen Zenji's teaching and also knew how to express Dogen's philosophy in clear and simple language-language that average folk could comprehend. Dogen's philosophy was deep, but Sawaki's principle concern was to bring people to an awareness of the Self, which he believed came through Zen meditation. Having come of age as an orphan in the slums of Tsui City, Sawaki had to fight his way to adulthood. A strict, no-nonsense teacher, Sawaki demonstrated a real concern for the development of his students. Though he remained financially poor by choice, he was rich in spirit. Sawaki traveled throughout Japan giving talks and running retreats most of his adult life. He never charged for his teaching and lived on a government stipend as a result of being wounded in the Russian/Japanese war. His humor and straightforward talk attracted people from all walks of life. Sawaki had many followers as a result of his easy accessibility during his travels through Japan. Two of his disciples who became known in America as well as Japan were Kosho Uchiyama, abbot of Antaiji Temple and author of "Opening The Hand of Thought" and Gudo Nishijima, Zen teacher and translator of Dogen's Shobogenzo"--

First published in 1932, this little book from Swami Paramananda, the highly-regarded Vedanta philosopher and teacher, contains nine guided meditations—one each for the individual to address life’s problems and issues. “THERE is nothing so potent as meditation to re-establish our rhythm when our mind is tossed by the waves of unruly thought. “There is no ill in life that cannot be cured by right meditation. “True meditation purifies our mind and clarifies our vision. “True meditation gives us, as it were, wings for flight to a higher realm and thus detaches us from terrestrial fetters. “It is through the habit of meditation we overcome all our sorrows and afflictions. “For every ill there is a meditation. There is the Meditation of Life, Meditation of Light, Meditation of Purity, Meditation of Humility, Meditation of Joy, Meditation of Freedom, Meditation of Love, Meditation of Wisdom, Meditation of Peace.”—Swami Paramananda
