by Ignatius Brianchaninov
As Buddhist practitioners, we must find our way into our practice, be it through intensive meditation, the recitation of mantras, or practice of the moral and ethical teachings. This book gives a view of the contemplative life through the ancient prayer that many Christians have taken up as the core of their lives. Bishop Brianchaninov, a 19th Century Russian writer, has a clarity that cuts straight to the heart, and his choice excerpts from other Christian mystics lay bare the power of a single phrase, invoked with the whole body and mind. Paperback, 167 pages.
