In the same warm, clear, and friendly voice, Bhante introduces the reader to what have been known for centuries as the ''jhanas'' - deeply calm, joyous, and powerful states of meditation that, when explored with the clearly presented tools in this book, lead to life of insight and unshakeable peace.
