Practice at the Pa-Auk Monastery: A Meditator's Experience
Table of Contents
About The Book
This step-by-step meditator’s guide walks the reader through practices that can hold the key to unlocking new levels of concentration and insight. A student of the famed Pa-Auk Monastery and a practicing psychiatrist, Jeon Hyun-soo, MD, PhD, uses these two paths to guide the reader to a new understanding of themselves and the world around them. Drawing both from Jeon’s own experience with Pa-Auk Sayadaw and from the words of the Buddha, this is an authentic and practical guide to samatha, materiality, mentality, dependent origination, and vipassana.

Raves and Reviews
"This is a book that conveys a profound message to those who would like to know and see the truths as they really are."
– from the foreword by Sayadaw Revata
"This book is nothing short of extraordinary. With humility, clarity, and absolute fidelity to the original teachings, Dr. Jeon shares his direct experience of advanced states of absorption, along with technical details of practice, in a manner that makes the ancient texts come alive. This book will surely inspire meditators to practice more deeply and more sincerely for years to come."
– Christopher Germer, Harvard Medical School, author of The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion
