a_meditators_life_of_the_buddha.pdfA Meditator's Life of the Buddha: Based on the Early Discourses457 viewsIn this work, Bhikkhu Anālayo applies his consummate knowledge of the textual collections of Early Buddhism to the task of constructing a biography of the Buddha that focuses on his life as a meditator. The book not only paints a very human picture of the Buddha’s life, but through the exercises attached to each chapter it enables the reader to join the Buddha on his quest for enlightenment and beyond, into his mission as a teacher and through to his parinirvaṇa or passing away. While offering a scholarly portrait of the Buddha, this book is also a testament to the overarching unity of the various early Buddhist schools in their conception of the Buddha’s life, a unity that coexists along with a rich diversity in their detailed narrations about particular events in that life.

Bhikkhu Bodhi, scholar and translator.

Whitge-Lotus-Ascetic1-106.pdfThe White Lotus Ascetic (Text)835 viewsAbout fifty years ago, the late Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw of Myanmar introduced the technique of focusing one’s attention on the ‘rising and falling’ movement of the abdomen as an object to develop mindfulness. Thus meditators practise Satipatthana developing momentary concentration to achieve purification of mind, without the need to develop mundane jhana. Satipatthana Vipassana meditation became very popular among monks as well as the laity and many new Vipassana meditation centers sprang up all over the world to cater to the growing demand.Aug 14, 2016

Written as if spoken in simple Malaysian English, he continued to draw upon his personal experience to explain and supplement the exposition of the Discourse. Connecting the dots between Text and life, he illustrates it with modern day scenarios enabling us to see how the practice is applied – in both formal practice and daily life today.Aug 14, 2016

Beginners2ed_28Buddhanet29.pdfMahaSatipatthana Sutta: Great Discourse on Four-Fold Establishment of Mindfulness1116 viewsThis book explains Satipatthana or mindfulness practice by going directly and referring to this Discourse, which the Buddha originally expounded to the people of Kurus. So here we return to the basic orthodox Discourse spoken by the Buddha as a guide. In this way you gain a complete understanding of what the Buddha really taught. You can also gauge whether you are on the right track or if there is any missing part in your practice that you might need to include.Aug 14, 2016
