TIBETAN BUDDHIST MEDITATION
Ole Nydahl

Ole Nydahl, a trained Tibetan Buddhist meditation master in the Kagyupa tradition, takes us step by step through the teaching--first quieting the mind, then focusing on four motivations for meditation, and finally taking refuge in the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha. He also discusses the significance the the Lama in Tibetan tradition and the use of sound and imagery.
WHAT IS KUNDALINI?
Lee Sannella

Changes in the human brain and nervous system can result from intensive spiritual disciplines. Lee Sannella, M.D., author of Kundalini: Psychosis or Transcendence?, has devoted many decades to the exploration of spiritual paths. "Kundalini" refers to energy coiled at the base of the spine which can rise up to the brain. Although Western science knows virtually nothing of this process, it has been described in detail in Eastern spiritual traditions.
BENEFITS OF LONG-TERM MEDITATION
Shinzen Young

Meditation practices can lead to permanent changes in awareness of the self and the transcendence of the ego. Shinzen Young is an ordained Buddhist Monk and scholar of Buddhism. After about a year of meditative practice, he says, one establishes open access to a realm of altered states of awareness. When practicing in a disciplined fashion, one goes on to explore the various stages leading toward enlightenment.
CULTIVATING MINDFULNESS
Charles Tart

The underlying cause of most social and personal problems is lack of mindfulness. Psychologist Charles Tart, Ph.D., author of States of Consciousness and Waking Up, discusses how difficult it is to translate meditative awareness to the problems of daily life. He describes the training methods of G. I. Gurdjieff as an alternative form of mindfulness training intended to be used in the midst of workaday activities.

"The first thing there is to see that this life right now offers a very special opportunity for not dying just as stupid as one was born, but for really learning something while one is here."
