Publisher's Summary

Countless people worldwide have made Mindfulness in Plain English a beloved and best-selling 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 style, Bhante introduces the listener 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.

Horrible Pali pronunciation

The reader must learn to pronounce Pali words correctly and leave more space before and after section headers. He does the same with "In the Buddha's Own Words" by Bhikkhu Bodhi. It is hard to listen to him.

nirvana

not a bad guide regarding mediation as a practice and using it in every day life. The story lost me at the various infinite levels of nirvana. probably not a good book for beginners to zen Buddhism.

A silent book

Timer clicked along but no sounds were made through out except for the beginning announcement: This is Audible. Had it replaced twice but was the same silent book every time. Customer service staff Rome was a fantastic help!
