Quantity:

'Meditation Differently,' presents a translation of an important Tibetan work which contrasts and compares two central traditions of Buddhist meditative practice - the Mahamudra and the rDzogs-chen practice- particularly the sNyingthig version. 

This book offers not only a translation, but also a detailed and critical commentary based on original Tibetan sources.

The commentary offers a hermeneutical and phenomenological study of the key ideas in the understanding of Being and of Experience - utilizing development in modern thinking to bring out the nuances of Buddhist thinking.

A translation and commentary on Pad-madkar-po's definitive work on the four tuning in phases introduces the Mahamudra approach to meditation.

To understand the rDzogs-chen approach, a philosophical introduction to the rDzogs-chen understanding of Being is presented, and shows how this understanding can be compared to the modern philosophy and the development of the scientific study of dynamic processes and cosmology. 

Dr. Guenther's study is a critical and revealing approach to the problem of meditation that is at once true to the subject-matter and relentless in bringing out, in the contemporary context, what is said so comprehensibly and clearly in the original texts.
