Product Details

Praise

“Finely constructed meditation manual.”
Buddhadharma

“Clear and in-depth. Practicing the Jhanas explains difficult concepts and ideas in an accessible format and enriches the reader’s understanding of meditation.”
Yoga Magazine (UK)

“Stephen Snyder and Tina Rasmussen know what they write about in this book through their own direct experience as dedicated yogis. This book serves as a bridge for Westerners, as a conduit to the traditional teachings of the Buddha.”
—Venerable Pa Auk Sayadaw

“This is a unique road map to the extraordinary and transforming states of mind known as the jhanas. As a psychologist and as a practicing Buddhist, I recommend this book wholeheartedly.”
—Rick Hansen, PhD, co-author of Buddha’s Brain

Practicing the Jhanas is a wonderful addition to our understanding of concentration practice. Tina Rasmussen and Stephen Snyder draw on a wealth of personal experience to clearly elucidate and fine-tune this profound meditative path. Highly recommended.”
—Joseph Goldstein, author of A Heart Full of Peace and One Dharma

“A fascinating look at the inner experience of jhana meditation as taught by the Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw. Tina and Stephen are among a very few Western students of Sayadaw who can speak authoritatively about these profound levels of concentration. Their work is a most valuable addition to the contemporary literature of Theravadin Buddhism.”
—Guy Armstrong, teacher, Spirit Rock Meditation Center

“This book will be of interest to any dedicated meditator, regardless of their style of practice. It provides a valuable contribution to the growing understanding of jhana and its important place in Buddhist meditation.”
—Richard Shankman, author of The Experience of Samadhi
