Description

The Heart of Buddhist Meditation

By: Nyanaponika Thera

In print for more than fifty years and translated into some ten languages, Nyanaponika Thera’s The Heart of Buddhist Meditation has attained the stature of a modern spiritual classic. Combining deep personal insight with the power of clear exposition, the author guides the reader into the essential principles making up the Buddha’s Way of Mindfulness. Besides offering a lucid account of the basic practices of insight meditation, the book contains a complete translation of the Great Discourse on the Foundations of Mindfulness, the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha’s own instructions on the practice.

“A work of unique importance … written with great depth, extraordinary knowledge, deep humanity… I do not know of any book which could be compared to this work as a guide to meditation.”

Erich Fromm

Nyanaponika Thera (1901�94) was born in Germany and became a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka in 1936, where he lived until his death. Widely regarded as one of the foremost interpreters of Theravada Buddhism in our time, he is the author of numerous books and translations both in English and in German.
