Resources on Meditation (黙想 mokusou)

There are many resources on meditation.  I have compiled a list below of those that I have found helpful and some that seem helpful.  It is intended to aid me in finding them in the future and to aid others who may be interested in meditation.  Some kendo-related articles in English (which appear to be few in number) are included.  The resources are organized as follows:

  • Articles (mostly)
    • Articles About Meditation
      • Introduction to Meditation
      • On What is Meditation
      • Why Meditate?
      • Medical Studies
      • Differences between Meditation and Thinking
      • Metaphors for Meditation
      • Categories of Meditation Approaches
      • Stages of Meditation
    • Articles on How to Meditate

      • Ways to Meditate – in More Detail
      • Related to Thoughts, Thinking and “Thoughting”
      • Thoughts Coming in by the Back Door
      • Postures and Positions
      • Related to Letting Go and Surrendering
