Buddhist practices like contemplation are one of the methods for changing yourself and to build up the characteristics of mindfulness, thoughtfulness, and be aware of what is. The experience Buddhism has to offer which has been established since a great many years has made a unique asset for each and every individual who wish to take after 'A way'. 'A way' which eventually comes full circle into Enlightenment or Buddhahood. An Enlightened being sees the way of reality totally unchanged, as it is, without any rose tinted glasses and lives completely and fully as this state. This is the objective of the Buddhist profound life, being free of any anguish for any individual who achieves it. Since Buddhism excludes the possibility of a creator, a few people don't consider it to be a religion in the typical, Western sense. The essential precepts of Buddhist educating are direct and reasonable, nothing is settled or perpetual and activities have results so that change is conceivable. Buddhism addresses itself to all individuals independent of race, nationality, station, sexuality, or gender.

The Art and Skill of Buddhist Meditation offers a practical guide to building a strong meditation practice by unifying mindfulness, concentration, and insight into a single, integrated approach. Mindfulness and insight—clearly knowing what is happening in one’s present moment experience—and concentration—the ability of the mind to remain steady and undistracted—are foundational elements of meditation, yet people are often confused about how these aspects of the practice fit together. Should they be doing insight meditation or concentration practices? How does concentration fit into insight meditation? To help, The Art and Skill of Buddhist Meditation offers specific guidance for cultivating both insight and concentration in meditation. This book will be of interest to both beginning and experienced meditation practitioners who wish to familiarize themselves with, deepen their understanding of, and increase their practical skills in mindfulness, concentration, and insight meditation. New meditators who want hands-on skills they can easily put into practice will find the step-by-step instructions accessible and easy to understand. Experienced practitioners will find a complete and useful guide for deepening insight and cultivating the deeper stages of concentration known as jhana. This book also discusses the most common experiences that can arise as the meditation process unfolds, and will help you find the approaches and techniques that work best for you.
