Description

Publisher's Note

We have great pleasure in placing before our readers this short symposium on Paths of Meditation.

Originally contributed as articles for the 1979 Special Number of the Vedanta Kesari, these essays present an interesting cross section of the diverse theories and techniques relating to the art and science of Meditation. The writers are not only specialists, each in his own field, but speak from deep personal experience. They write, therefore, not like scribes but with authority.

Meditation is not escapism. It is neither an imposition nor a luxury. It is as indispensable for the spiritual life as breathing is for the physical. To meditate is to open the door of the mind to the spaciousness that is our birthright. Devoid of meditation, one is like a blind man in a world of light and colour and loveliness. Our prayer is that this handy volume may serve as an eye-opener to all seekers of the supreme fulfilment.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
