From the Publisher's Note:

The first two sections of this book—Secrets of Meditation, and Secrets of Inner Peace—consist of seed thoughts for meditation. They are listed as daily readings, and it may be useful to follow along with one reading from each section for each listed day of the month. Alternatively, you may prefer to pick a reading at random. Either approach can be effective.

We recommend absorbing a selection from Secrets of Meditation just before meditation—these seed thoughts are ideal for deepening meditation—and a selection from Secrets of Inner Peace at the end of your meditation—these affirmations are geared toward extending the peaceful aftereffects of meditation into your daily life.

In addition, the following pages offer guidelines for the optimum use of the readings for both of these sections.

The last section of this book, “Be Still and Know,” is an article by Swami Kriyananda on the importance of meditation and the best attitude for success in going within. It ends with brief meditation instructions.

We hope that this book will bring you ever-deeper insights and inspiration. And we wish you profound success in your meditations.
