Radical Compassion: Shambhala Publications Authors on the Path of Boundless Love

by Shambhala Publications and Ringu Tulku

What is compassion? Much more than just being nice, compassion is about looking deeply at ourselves and others and recognizing the fundamental goodness we all share. It’s about opening up to the vulnerable space inside every one of us and letting our barriers down. And it’s about daring to be present to ourselves and others with genuine love and kindness. Empowering personal awakening and social change, it might be the most radical and transformative thing we can do.The cultivation of compassion has long been at the core of Naropa University’s mission, since its origins in 1974—and its students and faculty have been leaders in contemplative education with heart. In celebration of Naropa’s fortieth anniversary, Shambhala Publications is pleased to offer these teachings on the path...

How to Live in the Present Moment: The Beginner's Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

by Beau Norton

If you are reading this now, you may have already come to the realization that striving for material gains and everything else the world calls “important” is not actually fulfilling. You probably have a yearning for something more significant. You might not know exactly what it is that you want, but I do know, because everyone on this planet is actually seeking the same thing…

Each and every one of us is seeking for inner peace and a sense of completion. We attempt to reach this by different means, but the goal is always the same. Some people strive for this sense of completion by chasing money or success. Some people use food, some people use drugs, and some people use so-called ‘spirituality’ in an attempt to reach this state where they can finally say “all is we...

by Sharon Moriarty

An Engineer, disenchanted with the frantic, all-consuming, yet ultimately low quality of life in Silicon Valley embarks on a Yoga pilgrimage into the Himalayas. There she hopes to reach some clarity of mind. She successfully travels up through India, encountering many interesting experiences along the way.

Foundations of Buddhism

by Helena Roerich

The Great Gotama gave to the world a complete Teaching of the perfect construction of life. Each attempt to make a god of the great revolutionist, leads to absurdity.Previous to Gotama there was, of course, a whole succession of those who bore the common welfare, but their teachings crumbled to dust in the course of millenniums. Therefore the Teaching of Gotama should be accepted as the first teaching of the laws of matter and the evolution of the world.Contemporary understanding of the community permits a wondrous bridge from Gotama Buddha up to the present time. We pronounce this formula neither for extolling nor for demeaning, but as an evident and immutable fact.The law of fearlessness, the law of the renunciation of property, the law of the evaluation of labor, the law of the dignity ...

Buddhism#now: Big Questions. Inner Peace. LOL

by Nigel Mellor

Monkfish and DVD are friends. Well, sort of. DVD likes meat pies. And a pint. And girls. But he's often miserable. Quite reasonably, he needs to know why he's not happy. The problem is, the answers keep bringing up more questions. Monkfish reckons he knows a thing or two, if only DVD would let him get a word in and stop being difficult. He wants to blend modern science with the essence of Buddhism. DVD just wants a quick reply. Can the two quarrel their way to dealing with the Big Questions of life, the universe... and Buddhism (with a little help from the author and Auntie Joan)? And what exactly is 'inner peace' anyway? And can you still party?

The Essence of Buddhism

by David Tuffley

This book describes the basic principles of Buddhism. Much has been written about Buddhism and how to practice it. Readers will have no difficulty finding hundreds of books on the topic. This book simply focuses on the essence of Buddhism, as expressed in the Four Noble Truths and the Eight-fold Path.

Buddhism is not a religion as such; it does not propose an external God. It does not seek to replace a persons existing religious beliefs, only to supplement them. The Buddha, in all likelihood, would rather his followers describe themselves simply as Followers of The Way.

Beyond Anger: How to Hold On to Your Heart and Your Humanity in the Midst of Injustice

by Shambhala Publications and Shambhala Publications

In July 2013, multiple bombs exploded in Bodh Gaya, India, in and around the holiest Buddhist pilgrimage site, the Mahabodhi temple that marks the spot where the Buddha attained enlightenment. In response, Shambhala Publications offers this free eBook consisting of excerpts from some of our books from a variety of Buddhist traditions that encapsulate values of love and nonviolence, which we can all practice ourselves. A chapter from the Karmapa points out the toxicity and uselessness of anger, from a basic, interpersonal level to the wider society at large. In I Take Up the Way of Letting Go of Anger, Zen teacher Diane Eshin Rizzetto helps us look at how we relate to an emotion like anger and, rather than suppress it, she marks a clear pathway we can follow to awaken in its presence and...
