Zorba Publishers and Relaxing into Meditation

Zorba Publishers, established in 2010 is an emerging publisher focused on bringing eclectic western writings to the discerning Indian reader. As part of our efforts to enrol new authors to be published in India, we came across a review by Rossinna Ippolito on Linkedin which spoke in glowing terms about a new, yet to be published book called Relaxing into Meditation “Relaxing into Meditation is the best book on meditation I've ever read, and I've been browsing them since the mid-70's. I say this because of the distinction made between relaxation and meditation, and the explanation of why relaxation must happen before meditation can begin. I have never seen it spelled out so clearly before, and in such a gentle, non-didactic manner”.

About 230 million Indians speak English as a first, second or third language. With rapid economic growth, a decline in the age of the working population and increasing incidences of stress related afflictions, we felt the subject of the book was particularly well suited for Indians to help them cope with their daily problems. We sent the book for extensive reviews to renowned people in different fields in India and abroad for their opinion on launching the book in India. There was overwhelmingly positive feedback on the book from our reviewers – both spiritual and lay – and we then decided to proceed with publishing the book in India. With 2013 – the expected inflection year in India for fast track growth – coming up, we feel that books like “Relaxing into Mediation” will be well positioned to serve the needs of the next generation in India very well.
