Product description

Countless people worldlwide have made "Mindfulness in Plain English" a beloved and bestselling classic in almost a dozen languages. Now after nearly two decades, Bhante helps meditators of every stripe take their mindfulness practice to the next level - helping them go, in a word, "beyond" mindfulness. In the same warm, clear, and friendly voice, Bhante introduces the reader to what have been known for centuries as the "jhanas" - deeply calm, joyous, and powerful states of meditation that, when explored with the clearly presented tools in this book, can lead to a life of insight and unshakeable peace.

Review quote

"Bhante Gunaratana has done it again! There is practical logic and an almost startling common sense to the explainations that lead the reader smoothly through the various stages of meditative concentration."--Ajahn Amaro, abbot of Abhayagiri Monastery
