КНИГИ О МЕДИТАЦИИ


Если я когда-нибудь еще буду работать с группами, я обязательно добавлю к обучению по развитию внимательности в повседневной жизни формальную сидячую медитацию. В ней достигается глубина прозрения, которой нелегко добиться при чувствовании-смотрении-слушании среди повседневной жизни, хотя эти глубокие прозрения трудно распространить на повседневную жизнь, как говорилось в Приложении I. Эти практики прекрасно дополняют друг друга.

Медитацию лучше всего осваивать под руководством учителя, такого, как Согьял Ринпоче, но если нет такой возможности, то очень рекомендую кассету Шинзен Янга «Пять классических медитаций» (Shinzen Young. Five Classic Meditations). Это один из лучших учителей медитации для западных учеников, какого я только знаю; кассета дает возможность направляемой медитации, так что вы можете начать практику. Это коммерчески распространяемая кассета; многие другие его лекции по медитации и направляемые медитации, а также информацию о его учении и расписание ретритов можно получить в Vipassana Support Institute, 4070 Albright Avenue, Los Angeles CA 90066.

В нижеследующий список литературы, ориентированной преимущественно на практическое овладение различного рода медитациями, включены также несколько книг более теоретического содержания, которые, впрочем, интересны и широко доступны. Я отметил звездочками книги, которые кажутся мне особенно полезными для обучения медитации.
