Reader Review: "In February, 2010, I led a group of twenty Buddhist practitioners to the holy sites in Buddhist India. We used Kory Goldberg and Michelle Decary's "Along the Path" as our guide to gain a deeper understanding of places we were visiting. We often used the book's selections from the Pali Canon as the basis of our group reflections and dhamma talks. It became a most inspiring source for us both as travelers in India and as Buddhist pilgrims. Goldberg and Decary are to be complimented on their devotion and commitment in putting this book together for those wishing to visit the holy sites. —Mu Soeng, Resident Scholar at the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, Barre, Massachusetts This eBook is in PDF format, which can be read on any eBook reader which can display PDF files, and on computers.

Buddha, The - PDF eBook
Buddha, The - PDF eBook
Far from being a recluse concerned only with an inner mystical experience, the Buddha always involved himself closely in the social and political world of his time. If he preached detachment from many of the things by which ordinary men are tied, he did so as a means of enriching life rather than escaping from it. Trevor Ling describes the India into which the Buddha was born, recounts what is known of his life and the development of his teaching, and then follows the course of Buddhism through succeeding centuries in India and Sri Lanka. His admiration for the Buddha and his teaching and for the civilization which embodied it makes this a warm and stimulating book.

Buddha's Path to Deliverance, The - PDF eBook
Buddha's Path to Deliverance, The - PDF eBook
This classic anthology from the Pāli Canon charts the entire course of spiritual development as prescribed in the most ancient Buddhist texts. Drawing upon the Buddha's own words from the Sutta Piṭaka, the compiler has arranged them in accordance with two overlapping schemes of practice: the threefold training in virtue, concentration, and wisdom, and the seven stages of purification. A long chapter on concentration provides sutta sources for all the forty classical subjects of meditation, while the chapter on wisdom cites texts relating to the development of insight. Ven. Nyanatiloka Thera (1878-1957) was a prolific and highly regarded translator of Pāli Buddhist texts into German and English. He spent more than 50 years in the Buddhist order, most of this time in Sri Lanka. This eBook is in PDF format, which can be read on any eBook reader which can display PDF files, and on computers.

Burmese Monk's Tales - eBook
Burmese Monk's Tales - eBook
The Monk’s Tales contained in this collection were first told during that dark decade of Burmese history (1876–85), when the coming event of the British conquest of the whole country was perturbing the Burmese people. For the first time since the eleventh century the future of Burmese Buddhism became uncertain, and there was widespread fear, both in Upper Burma still under a Burmese king and in Lower Burma already under British rule, that the final fall of the Burmese kingdom would result in the total extinction of both the national religion and the Burmese way of life. Told with the purpose of allaying this anxiety and fear, these tales give a full and faithful résumé and appraisal of the position of Burmese Buddhism on the eve of the British conquest of 1886.

Chaṭṭha Saṅgāyana Souvenir Album - PDF
This souvenir album contains photos and text documenting the Sixth Buddhist Council. The Sixth Buddhist Council opened on May 17, 1954. Like the preceding councils, its chief objective was to recite, affirm and preserve the genuine wording of the Vinaya, Suttas and Abhidhamma--the pariyatti--as related by the Buddha and his principal disciples. This Council was unique in that the 2,500 learned Theravāda monks who participated came from eight countries--Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, India and Nepal--unlike previous councils which had included monks from the host countries only. Mahayana monks and representatives from all Buddhist countries also attended.

Comprehensive Manual of Abhidhamma, A - PDF eBook
Comprehensive Manual of Abhidhamma, A - PDF eBook
This modern translation of the Abhidhammattha Sangaha (Manual of Abhidhamma) offers an introduction to Buddhism's fundamental philosophical psychology. Originally written in the 11th or 12th century, the Sangaha has served as the key to wisdom held in the Abhidhamma. Concisely surveyed are Abhidhamma's central themes, including states of consciousness and mental factors, the functions and processes of the mind, the material world, dependent arising, and the methods and stages of meditation. This work presents an exact translation of the Sangaha alongside the original Pali text. A detailed, section-by-section explanatory guide and more than 40 charts and tables lead modern readers through the complexities of Adhidhamma. A detailed introduction explains the basic principles of this highly revered ancient philosophical psychology. Abhidhamma , the third division of the Pitaka, is a huge collection of systematically arranged, tabulated and classified doctrines of the Buddha, representing the quintessence of his Teaching. Abhidhamma, meaning Higher or Special Teaching, is unique in its abstruseness, analytical approach, immensity of scope and conduciveness to one's liberation. In the Abhidhamma, the Buddha treats the dhamma entirely in terms of ultimate reality (Paramattha sacca), analyzing every phenomenon into its ultimate constituents. All relative concepts such as person, mountain, etc. are reduced to their ultimate elements which are then precisely defined, classified and systematically arranged. In Abhidhamma, everything is expressed in terms of khandha, five aggregates of existence; ayatana, five sensory organs and mind, and their respective sense objects; dhatu, elements; indriya, faculties; sacca, fundamental truths; and so on. Relative conceptual objects such as man, woman, etc. are resolved into ultimate components and viewed as an impersonal psycho-physical phenomenon, which is conditioned by various factors and is impermanent (anicca), suffering (dukkha) and without a permanent entity (anatta). Having resolved all phenomena into ultimate components analytically it aims at synthesis by defining inter-relations (paccaya) between the various constituent factors. This volume, a recent update of Ven. Mahathera Narada's classic annotated translation, contains the Pāli text, Bhikkhu Bodhi's lucid, revised translation, and a long introduction by Bhikkhu Bodhi and Ven. U Rewata Dhamma explaining the basic principles of the . It also features 48 charts and tables representing the subject in a visual format, provided by Ven. U Silananada.

Healing of the Bull, The - Audiobook MP3
One day, into the temple premises where Kapuri the she-elephant, the wise tortoise, and the peacock lived, there arrived a work-worn bull. Kapuri saw him seated in the middle of the temple grounds behind the monks' quarters, looking as though he were weighed down by a world of sorrow.

When Kapuri's mahout tied her to the accustomed jak tree after her day's work and went away leaving a heap of kitul palms for her to munch on, Kapuri cast several thoughtful glances in the direction of the bull. He was seated close by, looking like a dejected sack of bones that had been carelessly deposited on the ground.

"But let not metta be mistaken as a mere sentiment. It is the power of the strong. If the leaders from different walks of life were to give metta a fair trial, no principle or guideline to action would be found to possess greater efficiency or fruitfulness in all spheresÖ.If man decides to substitute metta as a policy of action for aggression and ill will, the world will turn into a veritable abode of peace. For it is only when man shall have peace within himself, and boundless goodwill for others, that peace in the world will become enduring." (p. 47)

Short Biography of Ledi Sayadaw, A - eBook
The late Venerable Ledi Sayadaw was a highly developed and respected monk in Burma, both in pariyatti (intellectual/ scriptural knowledge) and in patipatti (practice/ meditation). He lived from 1846 to 1923. He is also known as the first monk there to teach Vipassana meditation to lay persons (people who are not monks). One of his leading students was a lay farmer Saya Thetgi, who the Sayadaw instructed to also teach others. One of his students was Sayagyi U Ba Khin, the great lay teacher of S.N. Goenka. Following is an introduction to Ledi Sayadaw and this biography by Goenka. "There are no words appropriate or adequate to express my feelings of deep gratitude towards my great-grand-Dhamma teacher, the most reverend late Ledi Sayadawgyi. He was the most brilliant star in the galaxy of Dhamma teachers of this age, both in the fields of Pariyatti as well as Patipatti. The present book on his life is written by Agga Maha Saddhamma Jotika Dhaja Venerable U Nyanissara of Sagaing Sitagu monastery. He is one of the leading personalities in the present day Myanmar Saṅgha. It is all the more a pleasure to learn that this book was written while Venerable Sayadaw visited Dhammagiri, Igatpuri (India) to practise the Vipassana technique as taught by Ledi Sayadaw. May the readers of this book get inspired to walk on the path of liberation and attain real peace. Metta Cettena" by U S.N. Goenka
