Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a clear and in-depth description of the jhanas, the traditional Theravadan concentration meditation practices, from two authors who have practiced these meditations in retreat with and under the close guidance of one of the great modern masters. Pa Auk Sayadaw is the abbot of Pa Auk Monastery in Burma. He is considered by many to be the leading teacher of the jhanas.

The authors describe the techniques and their results, based on their own experience. This helpful book will be appealing to anyone who wants to learn more about this type of meditation. The instructions are thorough and detailed and will help even experienced meditators who have done retreats at one of the many popular Buddhist centers where concentration meditation is taught.

About the Author

Stephen Snyder began practicing Zen Buddhism in 1976 and has had a daily meditation practice from that time on. He has practiced for twenty years with Western Zen masters. Stephen attended a two-month retreat with Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw in 2005. He attained the eight jhanas (as well as other practices) in the span of the retreat, becoming the first American male to complete this attainment in the lineage of Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw.
