Yifa: Only reflect
Meditation is a key way not only to get in touch with your inner self but a wonderful way to reduce stress.
Lantern publishes several books that approach meditation from different perspectives. Glen Peter Kezwer explores it from a scientific perspective in his book Meditation, Oneness, and Physics
. Kezwer articulates how the discoveries of twentieth-century physics parallel the discoveries made by Hindu meditators centuries ago and carried on in an unbroken lineage to today. In this regard, the sense of oneness achieved by deep meditation is as complex, and yet as profound and somehow simple, as that of the great physicists' apperception of the unity of physical processes. Those interested in Hindu meditation may well be interested in The Bhagavad Gita as a Living Experience
, which talks about yoga as a meditative practice, and Yoga of Heart
, which explores the world of tantric yoga as a meditation.
A different approach is undertaken in the Ven. Yifa's two books, Safeguarding the Heart
, The Tender Heart
. While meditation is not the central component of either of these books, Yifa takes time to explore Buddhist meditation practice and theory (the reflection on emptiness and stilling the mind) and shows how meditation can help you deal with stress, suffering, and the vanities of our existence.
