Banyen's Description: 

Here is the ultimate go-to guide for learning how to meditate. It contains all the instructions you'll need to get started in a remarkably short space, but it also shows you how to make meditation practice a permanent part of your life, infusing it with wisdom and compassion as you go about your day. And it's instruction in the voice of the meditation teacher the young spiritual-but-not-religious crowd have come to trust: Lodro Rinzler, a young Buddhist teacher who speaks to the twenty- and thirty-something crowd in a way that has made his first book, The Buddha Walks into a Bar..., a best seller.

Lodro begins by challenging you to understand why you want to meditate in the first place, then, after the basic instructions, he shows how to prioritize your practice among your other daily activities and make it the center of all of them. He then shows you how to bring the wisdom and insight gained from meditation into all aspects of life.

It is up to you how you want to view the world. You could ignore those moments of peace and buy into society’s point of view that you are basically messed up and need fixing. You could continue to take refuge in external circumstances, ranging from new advances to make in your career to new products to buy to new people to date, and see how that works out for you. Or you can rejoice in those moments of peace and through discovering your innate state make a conscious decision to cultivate conviction in that experience. You can learn to appreciate your life and your world through having faith in this discovery of your peaceful abiding state.
