From the pages of Tricycle, the country’s most widely read Buddhist magazine, comes Commit to Sit, an introduction to the art of meditation. In recent years, interest in meditation has grown to include not only those on a spiritual search, but also those who are simply working toward a healthy and meaningful life.

This book brings together a broad range of Buddhist meditative techniques that have appeared in the magazine over the years. Contributors include some of theforemost voices in contemporary Buddhism: Pema Chödrön starts our journey with an inspirational  Foreword. Lama Surya Das explores the definition of meditation, while Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein lay out a 28-day program for establishinga daily practice. Wherever you are on your search, you will find plenty of guidance in this book. Learn about insight meditation from Bhante Henepola Gunaratana and Sylvia Boorstein. Or about zazen from Barry Magid and Martine Batchelor. Gil Fronsdal offers instruction in metta (lovingkindness) meditation, while Judith Simmer-Brown teaches tonglen, a Tibetan Buddhist practice for cultivating compassion. We also learn about the crucial role the body plays in meditation from S. N. Goenka, Reginald Ray, Wes Nisker, and Cyndi Lee.We receive guidance on managing issues that arise in meditation from Jon Kabat-Zinn, Christina Feldman, Matthieu Ricard, Pat Enkyo O’Hara, and others. And there are practices for bringing mindfulness and compassion to daily life from Thubten Chodron, Sayadaw U Tejaniya, and Michael Carroll.

        Though targeted to the reader who would like to begin meditating, this collection also offers support and guidance to the experienced meditator working to sustain a lifelong practice. This is a guide to meditative practice for any seeker wishing to deepen their understanding of themselves and their world.
So many great entry points to practic
I have read some of Sharon Saltzburg's materials before so much was repetitive but this book is a useful tune-up to my more or less daily practice. It would also be useful for someone new to meditation who wanted to understand the philosophy and method without being bogged down in a lot of very religious or ritualistic behaviors.
Comprehensive book. Helpful meditation tool.
I decided to go paperless every chance I get and this was the first I bought. Love the book love the paperless concept. I just needn't to commit to sit and even after reading this I still can't seem to sit! But definitely good reading
A reasonable compilation of previously published articles on meditation practice. It does not replace the direct relationship with a teacher however.
For beginners as well as people advanced in meditation, Commit To Sit is an excellent primer with all sorts of great information . It's articles are short and helpful. The book is organized in a really accessible way. I highly recommend it as being both lucid and profound. It has inspired me to sit everyday.
