Readings and lectures about meditation
« on: March 08, 2015, 11:57:50 AM »
I'm looking forward some advice to get any good reading about meditation. I mean i'm sure most of you already readed a lot of books about it, and i wondering if you can guide to some good one.
i'm looking about the essence of meditation more than some kind of guide to learn "how to meditate". Can be novels as well, of course
Thanks a lot in advance  ;)

The essence of meditation simply put is letting go. I just finished a book "freedom from the known" by Jiddu Krishna Murti which brings home this point very effectively. Enjoy!
Take everything I say with a grain of salt.

I'm reading "Anger" by Thich Nhat Hanh. He writes about how to use your meditation in your life and in  your relationships so you can have more compassion. I really like that it gives me an application on how to live my meditation.

Have you looked in the library section of the forum?  There are many recommendations there.

Kind regards,
