What does it actually feel like to move towards Enlightenment? That’s the question asked by the authors of two recent books from Windhorse Publications (WP): Compassion and Emptiness in Early Buddhist Meditation, by Anālayo, and The Journey and the Guide, by Maitreyabandhu.

As WP’s Hannah Atkinson writes, “Both books are practical guides to the Buddha’s teaching – Compassion and Emptiness focuses on the meditative practices of compassion and emptiness, and The Journey...
