Whitge-Lotus-Ascetic1-106.pdfThe White Lotus Ascetic (Text)959 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.

Beginners2ed_28Buddhanet29.pdfMahaSatipatthana Sutta: Great Discourse on Four-Fold Establishment of Mindfulness1295 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

Panca_Sila_Pali_Canon.pdfPanca Sila (The Five Precepts) in The Pali Canon713 viewsIn some suttas only the first four precepts are mentioned, whereas all five precepts are described together in other suttas. The first four precepts are pakati-sila whereas the fifth precept is pannati-sila. Venerable Nyanatiloka explains in his Buddhist Dictionary that pakati-sila [is] natural or genuine morality, [which] is distinct from those outward rules of conduct laid down for either laymen or monks. Those latter are the so-called prescribed morality (pannatti-sila).
Suttas which include The Five Precepts are listed.
