Meditation, Prayers, and Practices
There's more to meditation than sitting and watching your breath. The Tibetan word for meditation, gom, means “familiarizing” or “habituating.” Here you’ll find books on how to train the mind and familiarize it with the virtuous qualities needed to become a fully awakened buddha.
This invaluable resource provides Dharma practitioners with clear explanations of the stages of the path (lamrim), complemented by guided audio meditations on each of the topics covered.
