Very little has been published to date on China's rich traditions of Buddhist meditation. Inspired by the need to increase meaningful interaction between China and the West on spiritual issues, modern meditation master Hsing Yun here brings this vast legacy to life in straightforward and engaging language. Professor McRae's introduction to the world of Chinese Buddhism helps place these instructions in their wider context.

Ellen G. White, in Testimonies, Series B, No. 2, p. 16, wrote the following: " Be not deceived; many will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. We have now before us the alpha of his danger. The omega will be of a most startling nature." Julius Gilbert White (1878-1955) well understood this message, he could clearly see what the alpha of apostasy was and what the omega would be, and he also understood the dangers involved. In this work the reader will find a message that is easy to understand, and it is our hope that the materials found in it will be of great value to all who open its pages with the purpose of wanting to know more of God's holy will.
