With the advent of the Internet, meditation books have been a staple of the meditation scene.

For those who are still struggling with it, a great number of books on the subject are available online.

These books are often packed with advice for meditation practices, and are designed to be accessible for people with no previous experience of meditation.

The best meditation books for people who are just getting into meditation are also available for free on Amazon.

But for those who have been meditating for a while, the best meditation book for new meditators can be a challenge.

Here are the best books for new, first-timers to help them figure out how to meditate.


Siddhartha Gautama: The Mindfulness of Mindfulness by John MacArthur, published by Doubleday and republished by W.W. Norton & Company.

This book has been a classic in meditation for many years, and was one of the most popular meditation books on Amazon when it was first released in 2005.

But its popularity is mostly due to the fact that it’s written by someone who has a long history of writing meditation books, and has become an important part of the modern meditation movement.

You can read an overview of this book on The Huffington Post.

But if you’re a first-time meditator, you’ll want to read this book first.


The Power of Mind: The Essential Guide to Meditation by Michael Oakes, published in 2005 by The Bully Pulpit.

This is one of my favorite meditation books.

Oakes has written over 200 books since being introduced to meditation in the 1980s, and this is one he still considers one of his favorites.

It’s a collection of more than 250 meditation-related topics and exercises, as well as a guide to meditation for people in general.

It covers a wide range of topics, and the authors take care to give readers plenty of guidance on how to practice meditation in general, rather than just for meditation.

It also has a chapter on “how to meditate without having a doctor’s recommendation.”


Zen Habits: A Practical Guide to Happiness by Scott Adams, published 2005 by Random House.

Adams is the creator of the popular YouTube channel The Simpsons, and his writing is both insightful and humorous.

This guide is his take on the principles of Zen Buddhism, which have become popular in recent years as a way to improve our relationships with others.

It includes a section on “How to Meditate,” as well a chapter that outlines some of the key meditation practices for people to start practicing.


The Complete Zen Book of Meditation by John Piper, published 2000 by Penguin Random House, with the addition of chapters on meditation and mindfulness.

Piper has written many books on meditation, but this one is perhaps his most comprehensive.

It has over 250 meditation topics and more than 60 exercises, covering everything from basic mindfulness to advanced meditation techniques.


The Tao Te Ching by Ching-Tzu Huang, published 2002 by Bantam Books.

This meditation book has become a classic among Buddhist meditants, especially in China.

It offers a comprehensive, up-to-date meditation guide for students, and is one the most influential texts on meditation in Chinese history.

It is also an excellent introduction to Buddhism, and many Buddhists today use it as their primary source of meditation instruction.


Zen: The Science of Peace by D. Michael Bailey, published 2003 by Penguin.

The author of the bestselling book The Art of Happiness, Bailey’s Zen philosophy is widely accepted in Western philosophy and politics, and it has become the foundation of much of the world’s current peace-building strategy.

This highly regarded book is also widely used in meditation retreats, with over 250 retreats offering it as a central component of their programs.


How to Get Rich by John L. Donahue, published 1998 by Penguin, with an introduction by the Dalai Lama.

This well-received book is an insightful look at the psychology of success, and also a meditation guide.

It explains how meditation can improve your life, including the benefits of meditation for your finances.


The Zen Master by Dogen Zenji, published 1993 by Doubling Books, with commentary by D’Arcy Campbell.

This first book of Dogen’s “The Zen Master” is widely considered the definitive book on the Zen tradition.

It was published by the Zen Monastery in 1988, and its impact on Zen meditation and Zen philosophy has been immense.

It contains many of the basic techniques for meditation, including a chapter covering mindfulness, and provides a detailed analysis of D’ Arcy Campbell’s teachings on Buddhism.


Meditation for Dummies by James Risen, published 1997 by HarperCollins.
