Synopsis: This booklet offers the basic meditation instructions described by the Buddha in the earliest records of his talks (as compared to later commentaries on those talks). If you are new to meditation or considering switching to this style, you'll find all you need to get started. If you are practicing this way already, it may help you review and fine-tune your practice. On the other hand, if you are seeking a deeper understanding of how the practice works, descriptions of insights that arise out of it, or ways to modify your meditation as it deepens, those are beyond the scope of this booklet. Buddha's Map: His Original Teachings on Awakening, Ease, and Insight in the Heart of Meditation provides that information in depth and detail. Breath of Love and Moving Dhamma also offer skillful guidance from my teacher, Bhante Vimalaramsi. The purpose of this booklet is to help you begin walking the Buddha's path of kindness and wisdom.

About the Author: Doug Kraft had difficulty sitting still in meditation for more than 10 or 15 minutes. So in 1976 he signed up for a ten-day meditation retreat. It was difficult. When he left, he thought, “That may have been the most wonderful thing I’ve ever done, but I’m glad I’ll never have to do it again.” Nevertheless, he found himself sitting an hour and a half a day. And he went back for another retreat the next year. And the next. And the next. Over the years he trained with Theravadan Buddhists such as Larry Rosenberg, Corrado Pensa, Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg, Christopher Titum, Joanna Macy, and Andy Olendski. He also trained with non-Theravadans including Korean Zen Master Sahn Seung, Tibetan Mingur Rinpoche, Siddha Yoga guru Muktananda, Ram Dass, Pir Vilat Khan, Salvador Rouchet, Emmanuel, and Jean Houston. Shortly after moving to California in 2000, he became a student of John Travis and traveled to Thailand to study with the Thai Forest master Ajahn Tong. With Travis’s encouragement he trained with a jhana master, Bhante Vimalaramsi. In his first few years with Bhante, his practice progressed more quickly than in the previous twenty-five years. This book is a product of those experiences and Bhante’s encouragement to teach.
