A non-denominational treatise on the benefits of meditation.Laurence Freeman, Swami Satchidananda, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, Edward McCorkell, Swami Shankarananda, Shree Chitrabhanu, Wayne Teasdale, and Bhante Gunaratana agree:meditation is for everyone. It is the practical, experience-based wisdom at the core of all religions and at the very heart of the spiritual life. This book of plain-speaking conversations brings together outstanding contemporary teachers of meditation from quite diverse yet very accessible wisdom traditions, including Christian Meditation, Contemplative Prayer, and Christian Sannyasa; Buddhist Bon Dzogchen and Theravada Vipassana; Jain Meditation; Integral Yoga and Kirya/Advaita Vedanta. This book does not focus on the theological or philosophical differences of its contributors but on the actual practice of meditation-how to meditate and get the most out of it. What emerges in the course of the book is how much the different roads of wisdom agree on the goal of the journey and the means to get there.
