Meditation: Coming to Know Your Mind is a wonderfully refreshing, well-informed, and practical guide to a rich array of meditative practices drawn from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The practices explained here, interspersed with illuminating personal narratives, are central to Buddhism and are at the same time relevant to everyone seeking a more mindful, empathetic, meaningful way of life. I recommend it to beginners and seasoned meditators alike.                 B. Alan Wallace, President, Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies
