Between_The_Lines_Vol__1.pdf
Between_The_Lines_Vol__1.pdfBetween The Lines (Volume 1) An analytical appreciation of the Buddha's Life 2410 views"Some 2500 years ago in ancient Northeast India, a young, brilliant and courageous man discovered the sublime answer to how the mind works and how to realise unconditioned happiness and bliss. For the next 45 years, he devoted his life to teaching the doctrine that helped bring unparalleled happiness, peace and relief to numerous people long after his death. In time stories began to emerge proclaiming his greatness and his near-divinity status. Over generations and into distant lands, those stories took on a life of their own. Eventually the real man is buried under a mountain of beautiful fantasies and magical tales. Scholars in Buddhist studies have never lost sight of the historical Buddha. There is a beautiful story to tell about the real man but the materials never quite made it to the mass market because academic books are generally hard to read and appreciate.Jun 14, 2014

craft.pdfThe Craft of the Heart, by Ajaan Lee Dhammadharo1375 viewsThis book, Ajaan Lee’s first, is like a catalog. In it, he gives the full range of his teachings on the practice of the Buddha’s craft, from the observance of the five precepts to the attainment of total liberation. Thus the different parts are written for different people at different stages in the practice, and the reader is advised to read, not judgmentally, but judiciously - taking whatever is useful for his or her own practice, and leaving the rest for others.Jun 14, 2014

upanisasutta.pdfTranscendental Dependent Arising - Translation & Exposition of the Upanisa Sutta1064 viewsTucked away in the Samyutta Nikaya among the “connected sayings on causality” (Nidanasamyutta) is a short formalized text entitled the Upanisa Sutta, the “Discourse on Supporting Conditions.” The Upanisa sutta reveals the entire course of man’s faring in the world as well as his treading of the path to its transcendence. This exposition sets out to explore the, “transcendental” application of dependent arising, drawing freely from other parts of the Canon and the commentaries to fill out the meaning.Nov 16, 2013
Wings_of_Awakening.pdf
Wings_of_Awakening.pdfThe Wings to Awakening - An Anthology from the Pali Canon1389 viewsMany anthologies of the Buddha's teachings have appeared in English, but this is the first to be organized around the set of teachings that the Buddha himself said formed the heart of his message: the Wings to Awakening. The material is arranged in three parts, preceded by a long Introduction. The Introduction tries to define the concept of Awakening so as to give a clear sense of where the Wings to Awakening are headed. It does this by discussing the Buddha's accounts of his own Awakening, with special focus on the way in which the principle of skilful kamma formed both the “how" and the \what" of that Awakening: The Buddha was able to reach Awakening only by developing skilful kamma this is the “how"; his understanding of the process of developing skilful kamma is what sparked the insights that constituted Awakening - this is the “what."Nov 16, 2013

Path_of_Purification_Visuddhimagga.pdf
Path_of_Purification_Visuddhimagga.pdfVisuddhimagga / The Path of Purification1596 viewsThis book is "The Classic Manual of Buddhist Doctrine and Meditation". Written by Buddhaghosa in the Fifth Century in Sri Lanka, and known by its Pali title, Visuddhimagga, it is the fundamental manual for the Theravadin school of Buddhism, upon which the popular Vipassana meditation is based. But it is ever so much more than merely a Vipassana manual. Divided into three main sections covering the three "baskets" of Buddha's teaching, it first addresses Virtue (Sila) and a brief chapter on acceptable ascetic practices. Next there follows a large and wonderful section on training in Concentration (Samadhi) based on the forty traditional meditation subjects. Finally, it concludes with a large section on Understanding (Panna), the wisdom teachings of the Abhidhamma. Nov 15, 2013
Path_of_Freedom_Vimuttimagga.pdf
Path_of_Freedom_Vimuttimagga.pdfThe Path of Freedom / Vimuttimagga 1685 viewsThe work is compiled in accordance with classical Buddhist division of the path into the three stages of virtue, concentration, and wisdom, culminating in the goal of liberation. It is widely believed that the Vimuttimagga may have been the model used by Buddhaghosha to compose his magnum opus, the Visuddhimagga (Path of Purification), several centuries later. The older work is marked by a leaner style and a more lively sense of urgency stemming from its primarily practical orientation.Nov 15, 2013
