ART OF MEDITATION Matthieu Ricard
Following on from The Art of Happiness, we welcomed Matthieu Ricard's elegant and inspiring guide to The Art of Meditation, which he was compelled to write because he is so often asked to explain what meditation is, how it is done and what it can achieve. So, in this authoritative and entirely accessible book, he sets out to answer these questions and talks you through the theory, spirituality and practical aspects of meditation. The Art of Meditation demonstrates that by practising it on a daily basis you can change your understanding of yourself and the world around you. He illustrates each stage of his teaching with examples, meditations and sources of inspiration, leading you deeper into your own practice. Through his experience as a monk, his close reading of sacred texts and his deep knowledge of the Buddhist masters, Matthieu Ricard shows the significant benefits that meditation, based on selfless love and compassion, can bring to each of us.
