books on meditation
Here’s a selection of books to help you learn how to meditate. While this is by no means an exhaustive list of books on meditation, this reading list is a good place to start. Buy these meditation books at your local independent bookstore (or on Amazon), or check out your local library.
I especially like How to Practice: The Way to a Meaningful Life by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It got me started. I then sent my copy on to Louis. Since then I’ve bought a couple more copies (and passed most of them on too.) As I progress in my practice, I appreciate what the Dalai Lama says in this modest book more and more.
Speaking of basics, never underestimate The Relaxation Response. It’s a classic which means it’s as true today as it was when it first appeared in 1975! Easy to find at the library or used bookstore.
