A Whole Book on Meditation by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Hey!

Since ven. Thanissaro's last book on mindfulness and Sati got so much attention here on the boards I thought I'd link to his new book dealing more specifically with the intricacies of his particular method of meditation - 'With Each & Every Breath'! Published a couple of days ago, it's a real page-turner, I'm sure.

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Thanks a lot for pointing this out. This looks very good, and covers jhana practice, which is not as common in meditation manuals I have seen.
When this concentration is thus developed, thus well developed by you, then wherever you go, you will go in comfort. Wherever you stand, you will stand in comfort. Wherever you sit, you will sit in comfort. Wherever you lie down, you will lie down in comfort.

I've been waiting for him to make a book like this. As much as I appreciate his constant quoting of the Suttas, it gives the book a disjointed feeling.
