This is the new edition of Easwaran's timeless book "Meditation" in which he outlines a spiritual practice comprising eight points based on the technique of passage meditation. In this method of meditation, you memorize a spiritual text, or passage, that embodies your highest ideals, and then send it deep into consciousness through slow, sustained attention. The other seven allied disciplines enable you to create an integrated life in which you are able to stay calm and focused during the day.
