When practiced regularly, meditation naturally deepens self-awareness and leads to spiritual insight. In our hyper, instant-gratification culture, however, most people miss out on those powerful outcomes because it’s hard to commit to a long-term practice. Despite the increasing popularity of mindfulness and its documented mental health benefits, the silent majority of meditators struggle to maintain a regular practice. In fact, research indicates that more than fifty percent of meditators give up on the practice. Through time-tested teachings and exercises, The Meditator’s Dilemma shows you how to deepen your meditation practice while cultivating ease and delight—for both beginners and longtime practitioners. The Meditator’s Dilemma, written by a psychologist with forty years’ experience practicing and teaching meditation, confronts this problem and its causes and provides specific, accessible techniques and exercises that greatly enhance everyday meditation practice. Bill Morgan’s teachings and guided meditation exercises are designed to generate the all-too-often missing delight and enjoyment in meditation. A note to readers: Bill Morgan also offers audio guided meditations described in the book at billandsusan.net/home-sweet-home/the-meditators-dilemma.

Having identified early material that goes back to the Buddha himself, the author argues that the two teachers of the Buddha were historical figures. Based on the early Brahminic literature, namely the early Upanishads and Moksadharma, the author asserts the origin of the method of meditation learned by the Buddha from these teachers, and attempts to use them to identify some authentic teachings of the Buddha on meditation. Stimulating debate within the field of Buddhist Studies, the following claims are put forward: the Buddha was taught by Alara Kalama and Uddaka Ramaputta, as stated in the literature of numerous early Buddhist sects, is historically authentic Alara Kalama and Uddaka Ramaputta taught a form of early Brahminic meditation the Buddha must consequently have been trained in a meditative school whose ideology was provided by the philosophical portions of early Upanishads Shedding new light on a fascinating aspect of the origins of Buddhism, this book will be of interest to academics in the field of Buddhist studies, Asian religion and South Asian studies.

What would happen if you were to allow everything to be exactly as it is? If you gave up the need for control, and instead embraced the whole of your experience in each moment that arose? In the 14 years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as "an end instead of a means to an end." What he ultimately realized was that only when you let go of all techniques—even the concept of yourself as a meditator—will you open to the art of True Meditation, dwelling in the natural state. True Meditation invites you to join the growing number of seekers who have been touched by the wisdom of Adyashanti to learn: How to make the "effortless effort" that will vivify the present moment Meditative self-inquiry and "The Way of Subtraction": how to ask a spiritually powerful question—and determine the real answer "We've been taught that awakening is difficult," explains Adyashanti, "that to wake up from the illusion of separation takes years. But all it really takes is a willingness to look into the depths of your experience here and now." True Meditation gives you the opportunity to reclaim the original purpose of meditation—as a gateway to "the objectless freedom of being."

Now back in print, these two classics by Raymond "Duke" Moore explore the power of Zen and the meditation in the Martial Arts. Fighting Spirit of Zen is Duke's 1974 treatise on how the spirit of Zen relates to the martial arts, and life generally. First published in 1980, Holistic Meditation tells how this powerful technique can help you succeed in your goals. * Jerry Kunzman: "Duke was one of a kind and, like the other 'greats of yesteryear', can never be replaced. But his words and teachings can live forever in his writings." * Rick Alemany: "We were all fortunate to have known Duke. He was way ahead of his time and it was a great loss to the Martial Arts world when he passed." * James Moses: "This text teaches meditation as a skill that can be learned, taught, practiced, and mastered." * Ferol Arce: "Duke always had a twinkle in his eyes, and always made you feel as though you were on the right track with what ever you were trying to accomplish."
