Practicing The Jhanas

While Zen people are notorious for saying things like, “Sit there and meditate” — without telling you how to meditate — a book called Practicing The Jhanas is the best book I know on the topic of meditation. It not only walks you through how to meditate, it also gets into the different levels of meditation, and what you can expect at each level.

(If you’re only interested in Zen, the book Zen Training is the best Zen meditation book I know.)
