“Beings are owners of their actions, heirs of their actions; they originate from their actions, are bound to their actions, have their actions as their refuge. It is action that distinguishes beings as inferior and superior.”

Beyond Mindfulness in Plain English

Bhante Gunaratana

Countless people worldwide have made Bhante Gunaratana’s first book Mindfulness in Plain English, a beloved and bestselling classic in almost a dozen languages.  Now after nearly two decades, Bhante helps meditators of every variety and level of experience take their mindfulness practice to the next level-helping them go, in a word, beyond mindfulness.  In the same warm, clear and friendly voice, Bhante introduces the reader to what have been known for centuries as the “jhanas”-deeply calm, joyous and powerful states of meditation that, when explored with the tools in this book, lead to a life of insight and unshakable peace.
