Overview

From newspaper op-eds to corporate retreats, mindfulness is all the rage these days. But mindfulness meditation is not merely a wellness trend - it's an ancient tradition.

Bhante Gunaratana is a monk practicing in the Theravāda school of Buddhism. Originally from Sri Lanka, Gunaratana's missionary work brought him to the United States, where he is now a leading author and lecturer on mindfulness.

First published in 1994, this classic text provides an authentic introduction to vipassana, the Buddhist practice of mindful meditation, explaining both its necessity and its benefits. With traditional Buddhist philosophy illuminated through relatable examples, Mindfulness in Plain English is a practical manual for establishing one's own vipassana meditation practice.
