The Path of Serenity and Insight The Path of Serenity and Insight

Bhante Gunaratana

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers

At the same time a scholarly treatise and a practical meditation manual, this is one of the most thorough treatments of the jhanas found in English. It was based on Bhante G’s doctoral degree dissertation, here revised for the serious practitioner. There are many explanatory notes, as well as notes that lead to further reading in the Pali canon. Appendices include the 37 constituents of enlightenment, the 40 meditation subjects, kinds of kamma and places of rebirth, and an extensive glossary. There is a bibliography.

Available through online book sellers.
