Sharon Salzberg's long-awaited first book illuminates the heart of lovingkindness like a lamp in the darkness, like the clearing of fog, like a sunrise on a beautiful morning - it brings light so that all those with eyes may see."
- Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart
"We have been waiting for Sharon Salzberg's Book for a long time. And it was worth the wait. From one of our finest meditation teachers comes the genuine article: the practice of the heart, of lovingkindness, by a heart made genuine through more than twenty years of committed practice."
- Stephen Levine, author of A Gradual Awakening
"A question often asked: 'How can I open my heart?' In Lovingkindness Sharon Salzberg recasts for us, with sweet simplicity, a 2,500-year-old answer that works."
