About the Author

Bhante Gunaratana was ordained at the age of twelve as a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka, earned his PhD in philosophy from The American University, and has led meditation retreats, taught Buddhism, and lectured widely throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. He's the bestselling author of Mindfulness in Plain English, Loving-Kindness in Plain English, and Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness--and numerous other books.


"Bhante G. presents classical Buddhist teachings with total integrity, yet his expression is contemporary and understandable by anyone. This potent book doesn't just give you the tools you need to get started on your meditation practice; it gives you the tools you will need to stay with it when the going gets tough."--David Nichtern, author of Awakening From the Daydream and Creativity, Spirituality and Making a Buck
"For beginners, this book will support you to develop an informed practice. And for the seasoned meditator, you'll be reminded of the important nuances so easily forgotten. I foresee both new and long-term practitioners returning to this book over and over for inspiration and wisdom."--Tamara Levitt, Head of Mindfulness at Calm
"This book is a joy and a companion, full of kind guidance and clarity."--Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison, author of Wholehearted: Slow Down, Help Out, Wake Up and co-guiding teacher of the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care
"Beginners will find [Start Here, Start Now] a highly accessible and insightful guide to mindfulness meditation, and even experienced practitioners may find this text useful for revisiting the basics."--Publishers Weekly
