Meditation is a subject of universal interest, practiced by spiritual aspirants of many traditions on the quest for serenity, peace, and wholeness.
Among the many traditions of meditation in Hinduism, Yoga and Vedanta have passed the test of time, proving as vital today as they were throughout the ages in helping us overcome the maladies of life and attain spiritual fulfillment.

Not bad, not great
It may be that my expectations were too high, but I was a bit disappointed by this book; it's a slog to read, and some of the better parts are taken (without giving credit) almost word for word from Swami Pramananda's short but very worthwhile Concentration and Meditation.
