Since Mindfulness in Plain English was first published in 1994, it has become one of the bestselling — and most
influential — books in the field of mindfulness. It’s easy to see why.
Author Bhante Gunaratana, a renowned meditation master, takes us step by step through the myths, realities, and
benefits of meditation and the practice of mindfulness. The book showcases Bhante’s trademark clarity and wit, as he explores the tool of meditation, what it does, and how to make it work.
This expanded edition includes the complete text of its predecessor along with a new chapter on cultivating loving
kindness, an especially important topic in today’s world. For anyone who is new to meditation, this is a great
resource for learning how to live a more productive and peaceful life.
Mindfulness In Plain English
I realize that this sounds trite but this book virtually changed my life. As an introduction to meditation,
it is clear and straightforward. But do not delude yourself, meditation is not easy. It takes discipline and determination, the results can be profound. In my case I had the determination, I am not saying that I am better than anyone else, no on the contrary I am equal and that is all. Because of this book and teachers I have finally attained a level of peace and well being that I never knew existed.
I would never buy an iBook on this subject. I needed to have a hard copy. I cannot speak ffor anyone but myself. This is a fantastic book, it can be a life changing volume, it was for me. If you are reading this, obtain this book in whatever format suits you but get it and practice it.
Fantastic! Not a walk in the park, certainly but the rewards can be transcendent.
I loved this book, and have begun my own meditation practice. It's thorough and reliable.
