Description About the author Contents
 
In this book, Analayo investigates the meditative practices of compassion and emptiness by examining and interpreting material from the early Buddhist discourses. Similar to his previous study of satipatthana, he brings a new dimension to our understanding by comparing the Pali texts with versions that have survived in Chinese, Sanskrit and Tibetan. The result is a wide-ranging exploration of what these practices meant in early Buddhism. While his presentation is based on academic methodology, this book is meant for practitioners, and he focuses on passages in light of their relevance to meditation.

"This book is the result of rigorous textual scholarship that can be valued not only by the academic community, but also by Buddhist practitioners. It serves as an important bridge between those who wish to learn about Buddhist thought and practice and those who wish to learn from it...As a monk engaging himself in Buddhist meditation as well as a professor applying a historical-critical methodology, Bhikkhu Analayo is well positioned to bridge these two communities who both seek to deepen their understanding of these texts."
-H.H. Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje
