Basic Buddhist topics such as the nature of karma, the four noble truths, the factors of enlightenment, dependent origination, and devotion are discussed.

Joseph Goldstein studied for many years in India with the renowned Buddhist meditation master Anagarika Sri Munindra. He has taught numerous meditation classes, workshops, and retreats in America, and is one of the founders and primary teachers of the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachussetts.

”Joseph Goldstein is a unique teacher. Like all good teachers, he is a vehicle for re-introducing the ancient knowledge into the confusion of this modern world. His words ring clearly, because they are born from his own experience. He has spent many years studying and practicing the life of meditation while living in India. Now he is bringing to this country a depth of understanding that could only come from those years of practice.
“He teaches meditation as a method of learning to see things as they are. His discourses are practical instructions for learning how to live with detachment and compassion. And throughout his work, he keeps that one quality essential for being a truly human teacher – a sense of humor.”
--from the Foreword by Robert K. Hall, M.D.
