Guide to Shamatha and Vipashyana Meditation (Book)


This 74 page book gives a clear and concise overview of how to do basic sitting meditation.

Its author Thrangu Rinpoche has spent the last 40 years teaching meditation and other Buddhist topics to both Western and asian students. The process of developing good meditation is to begin with Shamatha meditation which is to settle the mind and to gradually train it it so that we can rest without becoming overly distracted by thoughts and emotions.

The second step to developing good meditation is developing Vipashyana in which we learn how to look directly at our mind and see its true nature. When we are able to do this, we can begin to diminish our disturbing emotions and thoughts and our anxieties.

Both of these meditations can be done anywhere and without a special setting, implements, or empowerments. Rinpoche explains meditation in a simple, non-technical language based on a meditation tradition that is over 1,000-year-old and has produced many enlightened individuals.
