abhidhaultsci.pdfThe Buddha's Abhidhamma - Ultimate Science4085 viewsThe Abhidhamma, describes in detail the natures of the ultimate realities that really exist in nature but are unknown to scientists. His method of verification is superior to scientific methods which depend on instruments. He used his divine-eye to penetrate the coverings that hide the true nature of things. He also taught others how to develop concentration and how to observe with their mind-eyes the true nature of all things and finally the four Noble Truths.55555

Between_The_Lines_Vol2_By_Sylvia_Bay_2015.pdfBetween The Lines (Volume 2) An analytical appreciation of the Buddha's Life 2778 viewsThis book seeks to bring the historical Buddha back into the popular psyche. That story is as intriguing, and is perhaps even more inspiring than the best fantasy story that had ever been woven.55555

abhidhamma.pdfA Manual of Abhidhamma (Abhidhammattha Sangaha)5244 viewsAbhidhamma is the Higher Teaching of the Buddha. It expounds the quintessence of His profound doctrine. The Dhamma, embodied in the Sutta Pitaka, is the conventional teaching, and the Abhidhamma is the ultimate teaching. In the Abhidhamma both mind and matter, which constitute this complex machinery of man, are microscopically analysed. Chief events connected with the process of birth and death are explained in detail. Intricate points of the Dhamma are clarified.55555

Buddha_in_his_words.pdfThe Buddha’s Teaching In His Own Words 1567 viewsThe present Wheel booklet contains Chapter 12 of Bhikkhu Nanmoli’s classic compilation, The Life of the Buddha according to the Pali Canon. The purpose of that book, now in print for 27 years, had been to construct a biography of the Buddha by piecing together all the relevant material scattered throughout the Vinaya and the Sutta Pitakas. Since the Buddha’s life was in many respects inseparable from his teaching, Ven. Nanamoli had included, in the middle of the book, an anthology of texts dealing with the teaching, which he entitled “The Doctrine”.55555

FromCraving.pdfFrom Craving to Liberation (1)1943 viewsExcursions into the Thought-world of the Pali Discourses

The essays collected in the present book are revised versions of entries originally published in the Encyclopaedia of Buddhism, Sri Lanka. My main emphasis in each case is on exploring a particular term from the perspective of the early Pali discourses, while other sources − be these later Pali works, Chinese parallels, or secondary publications on the matter at hand − are taken into consideration only in a supplementary fashion.

a_taste_of_salt(2).pdfA Taste of Salt3132 viewsThe Sutta Pitaka was written down in the Pali language over 2,000 years ago. The Sutta Pitaka is made of five collections of suttas; the Digha Nikaya, the Majjima Nikaya, the Samyutta Nikaya, the Anguttara Nikaya, and the Khuddaka Nikaya. These texts remain the most complete record of early Buddhist teachings. The suttas fill thousands of pages, and it is a daunting task for most readers to read through the many volumes. A Taste of Salt draws 350 pages containing the central teachings of the Buddha from the roughly 5,000 pages of the Sutta Pitaka. The purpose of this collection is to make these essential texts more accessible to meditators and students of Buddhism.44444
