Description
Poet and Buddhist scholar Leah Zahler offers this vivid and detailed description of the meditative practices needed to develop a calm, alert mind capable of penetrating the depths of reality. The book reveals Tibetan Buddhist views on the mental states—known as the concentrations and formless absorptions—attained through meditation as described by three contemporary Tibetan lamas. Zahler also discusses the ways in which certain meditative states act as bases of the spiritual path, as well as the nature of meditative calm and the prerequisites for cultivating and attaining it.

"An excellent resource for anyone devoted to the study or practice of Buddhist meditation ... [and] highly recommended."—Wisconsin Bookwatch

"Working under the guidance of Jeffrey Hopkins, Leah Zahler has here produced a definitive introduction to the Tibetan interpretation of the concentrations and formless realm absorptions. Of interest to scholars of meditation, comparative religion, mind training, and altered-states-of-consciousness, this work will productively make available to readers information that will enable them to appreciate the Tibetan articulation of these states of meditation and their overall place in the Buddhist path."—Harvey B. Aronson
