Publisher's Summary

Meditation: It's not just a way to relax, or to deal with life's problems. Done correctly, it can be a way to radically encounter bliss and to begin - and sustain - real transformation in ourselves.

In Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond, self-described meditation junkie Ajahn Brahm shares his knowledge and experience of the jhanas - a core part of the Buddha's original meditation teaching. Never before has this material been approached in such an empowering way, by a teacher of such authority and popularity.

Full of surprises, delightfully goofy humor, and entertaining stories that inspire, instruct, and illuminate, Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond will encourage those new to meditation, and give a shot in the arm to more experienced practitioners as well.

    "one in a thousand"

    I'm a serious beginner mediator, I've spent the last month or two blocked. This book has just been so very helpful with so much I need to work on. I have read literally about 100 dharma books, there are a huge amount of good and very good ones but this is among the very best. if you only listen to a few I strongly recommend this and a trilogy called "Abiding in Mindfulness" by Joseph Goldstein. Also Ajahn Chas "Food for the Heart". seriously, try listening to these, they likely will change your life. Metta!

    "best Meditation book I've read"

    there are many great books on meditation but this is my favorite because of the ease of learning. ajahn brahm makes things very easy to understand with his stories, analogies, and conversational writing style. anyone can learn from it. plus he teaches with grace and compassion for all.
