With Each and Every Breath
With each and every breath ? A guide to meditation by Thanissaro Bhikku. The meditation techniques taught in this book are skills aimed at solving the mind?s most basic problem: the stress and suffering it brings on itself through its own thoughts and actions. Even though the mind wants happiness, it still manages to weigh itself down with mental pain. In fact, that pain comes from the mind?s misguided efforts to find happiness. Thanissaro states that meditation helps to uncover the reasons for why the mind does this and, in uncovering them, helps you to cure them. In curing them, it opens you to the possibility of genuine happiness, a happiness you can rely on, a happiness that will never change or let you down.
