Books on Meditation, Qigong and Related Subjects

How To Use This List

The table below contains a large number of items. However, it can be sorted so that you can find what you want. Use the ratings, categories and classifications to hunt through the listed items. By clicking on a column heading the whole table will be sorted up or down according to the criteria in that column. You can also use the search box to look for particular items by name or by any of the sorting criteria.

Have fun poking around but remember that, while a bit of reading can help to clarify our understanding, it is not book learning that is of the first importance.

Even if you consume as many books
As the sands of the Ganges
It is not as good as really catching
One verse of Zen.
If you want the secret of Buddhism,
Here it is: Everything is in the Heart!

Ryokan

Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

Ecclesiastes

A special transmission outside the scriptures
Not dependent on words or letters
By direct pointing to the mind
Seeing into one's true nature and attaining Buddhahood

Bodhidharma
