cover illust. is The Anahata (Heart Chakra) after Avelon c.1890; "The Heart of Buddhist Meditation is a classic presentation of the Theravada (or Southern) Buddhist teaching. In his introduction the author says: 'This book is issued in the deep conviction that the systematic cultivation of Right Mindfulness, as taught by the Buddha in his discourse on Satipatthana, still provides the most simple and direct, the most thorough and effective method for training and developing the mind for its daily tasks and problems as well as for its highest aim.' The book is divided into three sections. The first of these explains in simple terms the basic Buddhist practices of meditation, through the application of which anyone should be able to develop a state of full mental and spiritual awareness, irrespective of whether or not he or she subscribes to Buddhist philosophy. This is followed by a full translation with explanatory notes of the Greater Discourse on the Foundations of Mindfulness (The Maha-Satipatthana-Sutta), a basic text of what the Buddha taught on the subject. And finally comes a much needed anthology of translations by the author from Pali and Sanskrit sources of further texts dealing with Right Mindfulness."; a clean copy with small corner-creases to rear cover; incld.notes, glossary & index - 223 pages.
