Meditation on Perception PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Meditation on Perception free pdf Perception - one of the basic constituents of the body and mind - can be both a source of suffering and pain, as well as a source of happiness and health. The Buddhist tradition teaches that perception can be trained and ultimately purified through the practice of meditation. When we understand how perception impacts our lives, we can use it, just as we do any other object of meditation, to overcome harmful ways of thinking and acting and to develop healthy states of mind instead. In this book, the author brings us an introduction to the unique Buddhist practice of meditation on perception as taught in the popular Girimananda Sutta.
