Abstract:

A Meditator's diary is a very personal account of a woman's struggles and her fears; her sometimes euphoric, sometimes frightening inner visions; her coping with distractions and discomfort; her instruction from the wise monks who guided her medication. The author takes the reader to a land of mystery and beauty inextricably commingled. She presents the broad sweep of the Thai countryside, the musky fragrance of jasmine, temple bells lightly brushed by the evening breeze, the gentle kindness of the people. A Meditator's diary marks a touch, intellectually disciplined attempt to understand Theravada Buddhist meditation, its techniques and its benefits for Westerners caught up in a technology that too often seems out of control. Jane Hamillton-Merrit finally gained the understanding she sought. She found compassion without attachment, the peace that endures, a sense of the living flow of the universe. The book does not stop short wit one woman's unique experiences. the author goes on to describe how every reader can practically initiate one's own journey in meditation. The real journey of a Meditator's diary is not to Thailand, but a much more important one: the voyage into the most profound realms of the self.
