Translated and Annotated By Bin Song
Edited By Paul Blair
Ru Meditation: Gao Panlong(1562-1626 C.E) is an annotated translation of the major works of Gao Panlong on Ruist (Confucian) quiet-sitting. Its major themes include poetic descriptions of the meditative experience, practical guidelines, philosophical reflections, and biographical accounts.
