The foundation of all meditation practice are the two types of meditation that form the core of Buddhist spiritual practice: Tranquillity (Shamatha) meditation which aims at stilling the mind and Insight meditation (Vipasyana) meditation produces insight into the nature of all phenomena. Shamatha and Vipasyana in the Tibetan tradition is different from and more extensive than these meditations in the Hindu and Theravadin schools.
In this 170 page text Thrangu Rinpoche gives non-technical language an extensive descriptions of these two kinds of meditation. He includes a discussion of the purpose of these meditations, their different levels of practice, the obstacles and antidotes to these obstacles that can arise, and the accomplishments of each practice based on Rinpoche's own practice. As a result this book becomes a careful study of the mind from the point of view of actual meditation practice.
"With masterful scholarship and the ability to make subtle ideas easy to understand and apply in practice, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche explains this unified system of meditation for students both beginning and advanced."--The Indian International Journal of Buddhist Studies
