What is the biggest impediment of learning anything new? It is the jargons. People usually get scared by the jargons. For example, the fundamental jargons used in economics are Currency, GDP, GNP, inflation, deflation etc. If one wishes to master economics, one must learn to understand those jargons. So, the easiest way to learn the fundamentals of a new subject is to understand the jargons used in that field. But if people find it difficult to understand the definition of the jargons, they will simply show no interest to learn further in that field. Similarly, spirituality has evoked little interest among the masses because of the lack of down-to-earth explanations for the jargons used. Therefore, keeping those in mind who have very little time to explore the jargons on their own, this book contains very simple explanations for the spiritual jargons as well as very simple techniques to do meditation. So, anyone who goes through this book will develop a taste for spirituality and will learn to meditate very quickly and easily. It is immaterial whether you are a believer in God or not, but, if you are someone who has the courage to question anything and everything, this book is for you.

To ask, "What is meditation?" is like asking, "What is music?" No simple answer can even hope to convey the breadth and richness of this subject. Meditation is a contemplative art, a mental discipline, and a sacred journey. Meditation is a reflective practice, a tranquil retreat, and a joyous excursion. Meditation is simultaneously an aesthetic pursuit, a scientific investigation, and a spiritual path. You could say that meditation is a rainbow of many hues. But to describe meditation with fancy words and elegant expressions is like trying to describe the flavour of a ripe peach. Meditation, like the peach, must be experienced to be understood. Words can never suffice. Yet words of description and explanation are not useless. Words can tell you how to select the ripest fruit from a bushel of peaches. And words can tell you how to meditate, leading you to develop a powerful, rewarding practice. This book provides practical, methodical guidance for all who want to develop a powerful and rewarding practice of meditation. It begins with basic principles and proceeds step by step to more advanced topics while exploring a wide range of meditation techniques. Though the subject is vast attempt has been under to create a concise and user-friendly guidebook.

Featuring leading scholars from philosophy and religious studies, The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Indian Ethics dispels the myth that Indian thinkers and philosophers were uninterested in ethics. This comprehensive research handbook traces Indian moral philosophy through classical, scholastic Indian philosophy, pan-Indian literature including the Epics, Ayurvedic medical ethics, as well as recent, traditionalist and Neo-Hindu contributions. Contrary to the usual myths about India (that Indians were too busy being religious to care about ethics), moral theory constitutes the paradigmatic differentia of formal Indian philosophy, and is reflected richly in popular literature. Many of the papers make this clear by an analytic explication that draws critical comparisons and contrasts between classical Indian moral philosophy and contemporary contributions to ethics. By critically addressing ethics as a sub-discipline of philosophy and acknowledging the mistaken marginalization of Indian moral philosophy, this handbook reveals how Indian contributions can illuminate contemporary philosophical research on ethics. Unlike previous approaches to Indian ethics, this volume is organized in accordance with major topics in moral philosophy. The volume contains an extended introduction, exploring topics in moral semantics, the philosophy of thought, (metaethical and normative) ethical theory, and the politics of scholarship, which serve to show how the diversity of Indian moral philosophy is a contribution to the discipline of ethics. With an overview of Indian moral theory, and a glossary, this is a valuable guide to understanding the past, present and future research directions of a central component of Indian philosophy.
