Right Concentration: A Practical Guide to the Jhanas

Right Concentration coverNo aspect of the Buddha’s teaching seems to have been more misunderstood and neglected than Right Concentration, yet it is a part of the Noble Eightfold Path and an integral element of the Buddha’s own path to awakening. Now legendary American Buddhist teacher Leigh Brasington’s Right Concentration: A Practical Guide to the Jhanas offers a practical, accessible and demystifying look at the states of deep concentration – the jhanas – as described in the suttas of the Pali Canon. The book gives pragmatic, achievable instructions for entering these concentration states and provides an expert look at the theory, history and presentation of the jhanas in the Buddha’s original teachings.
