Originally published in the '40s, this book was the first to accurately and clearly present the Buddhist practice of meditation and adapt it to Western understanding and lifestyles. Now considered one of the standard manuals, this practical guide begins by strengthening the mind through concentration, then explains the deeper spiritual development available through meditation.
