Book recommendation for beginner

Post by Christopher » Thu Jan 24, 2013 9:19 am

Would you recommend this book for a beginner?

Mindfullness for Beginners

Or is there a better book more suited for a beginner?

Thanks

Christopher, check out the introductory resources thread in the Discovering Theravada sub-forum.

- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
