Meditation and the Discovery of Internal Happiness - with Richard Tunis (Rakesh)

Thursday, March 23, 2017
7:00pm to 8:30pm

Banyen Books & Sound
3608 West 4th Ave.


At this special Banyen event, Richard/Rakesh will speak on four of the most effective traditional techniques of meditation which he illuminates in his new book The Handbook of Meditation: Discovery of Internal Happiness. He will then lead a guided meditation employing a unique and powerful combination of three of these techniques. Rakesh's presence and ability to articulate on the subject is sure to provide attendees with a special and profound experience.

Richard (Rakesh) Tunis is a teacher who has dedicated his life to the study and practice of meditation. At the age of 16, a powerful drive from within inspired him to make his first trip to India in order to get to the depth of the enlightenment talked about by Hindu and Buddhist teachers alike. His experiences there were profound, leading him to spend time training with an enlightened meditation master. Rakesh has been practicing and studying meditation for over 40 years. His new book The Handbook of Meditation: Discovery of Internal Happiness is a clear and accessable book on meditation. It explores practical techniques, discusses yoga and meditation philosophy, and elucidates the physiological and psychological benefits of meditation practice.

"As a guide to the practice and benefits of meditation, The Handbook of Meditation is second to none.”

Glen Kezwer, Ph.D., Author of Meditation, Oneness and Physics
