Among the topics covered are: - The hindrances to meditation--ranging from doubt and fear to painful knees--and skillful means of overcoming them - How compassion can arise in response to the suffering we see in our own lives and in the world - How to integrate a life of responsible action and service with a meditative life based on nonattachment Useful exercises are presented alongside the teachings to help readers deepen their understanding of the subjects.
