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.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
