Excerpt:

Meditation for Beginners offers the central trainings and teachings found in the best Buddhist monasteries translated for Western society.  In Meditation for Beginnings, you will find some of the simplest and most universal of the practices of meditation-in particular, the practices of mindfulness and lovingkindness. 

The point of these teachings has nothing to do with becoming a Buddhist, or learning any Eastern ceremonies or rituals or bowing.  The point is that you learn how to work with meditation in order to find benefits from it in your life.  When we take time to quiet ourselves, we can all sense that our lives could be lived with greater compassion and greater wakefulness.  To meditate is to support this inner potential and allow it to come forth into our lives.
