In this book--Meditation on Perception, Ten Healing Practices to Cultivate Mindfulness, Bhante Gunaratana focuses on "how perception can be used as an object of meditation. In Buddhist teachings, perception is one of the basic constituents of the body and mind. It includes the information we get from our five senses, as well as the way the mind processes and understands this information.
When we understand what perception is and how it impacts our lives, we can use it, just as we do any other object of meditation, to overcome harmful ways of thinking and acting and to develop spiritually."
