Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With over a quarter of a million copies sold, Mindfulness in Plain English is one of the most influential books in the burgeoning field of mindfulness and a timeless classic introduction to meditation. This is a book that people read, love, and share - a book that people talk about, write about, reflect on, and return to over and over again.

Bhante Gunaratana is also the author of Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness, Beyond Mindfulness in Plain English, The Four Foundations of Mindfulness in Plain English, and his memoir Journey to Mindfulness.

Synopsis:

The bestselling, classic guide to insight meditation! is a book that people give to everyone they know—a book that people talk about, write about, think about, and return to repeatedly.

With his distinctive clarity and wit, "Bhante G" takes us step by step through the myths, realities, and benefits of meditation and the practice of mindfulness. We already have the foundation we need to live a more productive and peaceful life—Bhante simply points to each tool of meditation, tells us what it does, and how to make it work.

This expanded edition includes the complete text of its bestselling predecessor, as well as a new chapter on the cultivation of lovingkindness, an especially important subject in today's fractious world.
