Despite the interest in meditation, few works have studied what meditation means within the original traditions.
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 Dzogchen - particularly the Nyingthig version.
This translation is supplemented by a detailed commentary based on original Tibetan sources by Dr. Guenther - an eminent scholar of Buddhism and modern thought.
This critical commentary is a hermeneutical and phenomenological study of the key ideas in the understanding of being and experience, utilizing developments in modern thinking to bring out the nuances of Buddhist thinking.
