Posts Tagged ‘books for happiness’

Here is the wanted list! The books are in no particular order: some were more relevant than others. The teachers I go back to and read frequently are Bhante Gunaratana and Thich Nhat Hanh. The Dalai Lama’s words are always wise. Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein also provided valuable insights. Tibetan Buddhist practices are much closer to yoga meditations from the tantras, that we have practiced over all these years, than they are to insight meditations and loving kindness meditations. I created a synthesis of various practices for June meditations.
