We have a nice selection of books in the Suggested Reading section of
our web site at http://home.meditationsociety.com/reading.html
While there I suggest you check out the Beginners section, starting
with the "What Is Meditation" article. Then, if you browse through our
archives, you will find dozens of "how-to" techniques, and if one or a
few attract you, actually try to do them. There is no better way to
learn about meditation than by meditating. And then if you have any
questions, or want to share your experiences, this is the place.
Peace and blessing,

I went to the files section and saw that the first file listed is an
eBook of Alister Crowley meditations. I then found that I, as
moderator, can't delete it, which I was inclined to do, particularly
as it may be the first thing that a beginner may check, and I have
great doubts that this would be the "best" this group can offer. So, I
don't mind debating the rightness or wrongness of deleting this, and
prefer that we don't have to, but I'd really like to know if anyone
more compu-savey than me (which would be many), could tell me how one
goes about getting rid of a file in this group.
Also, PapaJeff himself has written a very good book, Sunrise at Two
Lions, that can well serve as a good send off on the Yellow Brick road
of meditation. It can be found at http://www.mindgoal.com
BTW, to me, The Living Gita, and The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, both by
Swami Satchidananda, are the best books you can find.
Peace and blessings,
PS: The Eagles did it again! Look out everybody else!!!
