No nonsense manual for meditators,

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond: A Meditator's Handbook (Taschenbuch)
Clear, no nonsense step-by-step explanation of samatha meditation, Ajahn Brahm does have some strong opinions concerning samatha/ jhana, since I have no way to prove his statements historically, I take them with a grain of salt, and enjoy the rest of the book.
According to the author all those years I spent of vipassana training (mindfulness of the present moment) are 'merely' a preparation for the real work aka samatha meditation. This preparation is not less important, though; since how could I otherwise keep the delicate balance between energy and concentration, faith and wisdom, and mindfulness?
IMHO samatha meditation is not the appropriate method to start with if you are a newbie in meditation, but it's the next step for those who want to make further progress in the path.
