Meditation for All, by Ngon Som, is named as such since the Dhamma discovered by the Buddha is the universal law, the law of nature, which can be beneficial to anyone who is able to follow diligently the Noble Eightfold Path, summed up in three groups of sīla (morality), samādhi (concentration) and paññā (wisdom). Gotama Buddha, just like all the Buddhas in the past, found out this law due to his pāramī (perfections). Thus, the Buddha-Dhamma is not a monopoly but the possession of all, whether Christian, Jain, Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist. This book is intended to inspire those who undertake the actual practice of sīla, samādhi and paññā; enabling them to come closer to the goal of full liberation.
