In no particular order: "Food for the Heart" by Ajahn Chah. His teachings are so profound yet so easy to understand. "Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness" by Bhante Gunaratana. I did have have the pleasure of attending a meditation retreat and series of teachings he gave. "The Art of Happiness" by The Dalai Lama. " The Majjhima Nikaya" The translation by Bhikku Nanamoli and Bikkhu Bodhi and " The Lotus Sutra" just because it was fun to read
Hello. I have been meditating for about 9 years, Mostly Vipassana. I recently read the Tao Teh Ching and I have just started the Hua Hu Ching. I think that I understand the major points (sort of ) I haven't come across very much about the meditation techniques or if it is any different from what I have been practicing, so I look forward to learning here.
