This is a classic text on the essence of Buddhist meditation. It is an excellent, in-depth description of mindfulness practice and its benefits. It includes a concise explanation of clear comprehension, which is the kind of mindfulness you use in the course of your daily life. It also presents an easily understandable explanation of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.This new edition includes an introduction from noted author and teacher Sylvia Boorstein.Although the Buddha lived over 2500 years ago, his teachings on meditation are among the most effective methods for healing the pain of grief, finding inner peace, and overcoming the sense of dislocation caused by living in the 21st century. Mindfulness is a method not only for committed Buddhists. It is for everyone interested in mastering the mind.

Reviews

"This is the book that started it all--the book that, with great clarity and ardor, introduced Vipassana and mindfulness to the West. I still have and cherish my dog-eared, heavily underlined and annotated copy from way back when--with the price tag still on it: $3.00. Of course its content is timeless--and universal. All teachers of mindfulness-based programs would do well to carefully read and re-read this book and reflect upon the ways in which mindfulness is described in terms of both bare attention and clear comprehension." -Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of "Mindfulness for Beginners" and "Full-Catastrophe Living" "It's wonderful to see this new edition of an invaluable, classic meditation guide. Nyanaponika Thera's "The Heart of Buddhist Meditation" is sure to benefit many." -Sharon Salzberg, Co-Founder of The Insight Meditation Society
