My husband has been writing a couple of books about meditation for beginners lately. The first book was a real success and has sold a few thousand copies already at Amazon.com. The title is, “Meditation for Beginners – A 22-Day Course”. Here is the information page for it at our main Thai Amulet Sales site – Meditation for Beginners book (click).
He is almost finished with the next book in the series, called, “Meditation for Beginners – 10 Breath Meditation”. This one gives the entire meditation process in detailed format so you can follow it no matter what your experience level. This next book will be available at Amazon.com also, and will be about the same price – $2.99 to $3.99. Estimated release date is about July 20, 2013.
If you or someone you know is beginning meditation and you want a book that shows you exactly, step-by-step, what to do in order to reach the higher stages (jhana) of meditation – get this next book when it is released. It is cheap and I promise it is one of the best on the Amazon.
