This book addresses the real, true purpose of meditation. Meditation is the study and practice of the I-knowing-the-I, the true knowledge of the self and ultimately of the Self. This is the path of Raja Yoga, the Royal Road to Union with the All.
This book can answer many of the questions one may have about the theory and practice of meditation. There are many benefits to meditation from the everyday point of view. Relaxation helps one overcome stress, one of the major killers in modern life. Reduction of this stress (and ultimately healing of many of its ill effects) is one of the first benefits of meditation. As one progresses, one learns greater focus and concentration, a benefit in sports, relationships, study and, of course, business. The control and opening of the mind allows one to experience the higher levels of consciousness, which bring inspiration and problem-solving at a new level.
It doesn't matter how little or how much one knows about meditation or how long one has been practicing it, this book has something which can lead you foreward on your path. It is of profit for nearly anyone. The explanations and exercises are clean, concise and well-organized.
No matter where you are as a student and practitioner of meditation, or your reason or reasons for practicing, or your favorite method or direction, this book will help you to grow. I found that just reading it led me to a beautiful feeling and place.
