Ram Dass is an American psychologist and spiritual teacher who has studied and practiced meditation for many years. Here he shares his understanding and explores the many paths of meditation--from mantra, prayer, singing, visualizations, and "just sitting" to movement meditations such as tai chi--and suggests how you can find methods suitable for you. He illuminates the stages and benefits of meditative practice, and provides wise and often humorous advice on overcoming difficulties along the way.

Great book. He made it understandable to a common reader. The book really makes you think about eliminating/rethinking poor personal traits we all deal with such as an ego. Also a good introduction to meditation if one was looking to start meditating. Read full review
