Therigatha - Book of Verses of Elder Bhikkhunis: Free Download on January 15 and 31, February 15, and March 1 and 15

by Anagarika Mahendra

The present book, Therīgāthā, belongs to the Pāḷi Tipiṭaka, the authorized recension for Theravāda. Therīgāthā is perhaps unique in the world spiritual literature in that it contains verses exclusively by liberated women, and is likely the earliest such compendium.The Elder Bhikkhunis (therī in Pāḷi), whose verses (gāthā) and spontaneous utterances are collected herein, represent a cross-section of the contemporary Indian society: here we find princesses and paupers, socialites and peasants, teens and senior citizens, single and married, reputable housewives and courtesans, high-class society and down-trodden ones, mothers with children and mothers who have lost children, disputation experts and quiet ones – singing songs of joy and gratitude; and extolling the Buddha,...

When you attempt to introduce people to Buddhism, they have this very strange notion that they have to learn a new religion. That makes it complex for people who don’t really understand what Buddhism is. Buddhism is a philosophy rather than a religion. That means that regardless of the religion you choose or the God that you worship, Buddhism can be incorporated into the way that you live your life without actually treading on the toes of religion. It...

The Little Book of Buddhist Daily Living: The Discipline for Lay People (The Little Books on Buddhism 6)

by Eric Van Horn

One of the great challenges for Western Buddhists is how to take a meditation practice and bring it into daily living. Monks and nuns have every aspect of their lives governed by the monastic code, the Vinaya. This makes their lives simpler. The monastic life is optimized for developing the path.In Asia, traditionally lay Buddhists do not meditate. They followed the Five Ethical Precepts, practice generosity by supporting the monastic Saṇgha, and they go to the temple or monastery on Uposatha Days.But in the West we have a mode of practice that lies somewhere between the monastic model and the Asian lay model. Western Buddhists are mainly lay people. But we do meditate, and we aspire to many of the life ideals of monks and nuns.The Little Book on Buddhist Daily Living has discussions on ...

The Little Book of the Life of the Buddha (The Little Books on Buddhism 3)

by Eric Van Horn

In the centuries that followed the Buddha’s death there were many fanciful and mythologized accounts of his life. Unfortunately these stories gained traction, and even today movies and television programs are often based on these accounts. The Little Book of the Life of the Buddha goes back to the original sources in order to reconstruct his life from the oldest material. This helps answer important questions about the nature of the Buddha and his quest for Awakening.
Despite some assertions that there is little biographical information about the life of the Buddha, quite the opposite is true. In fact, a major hurdle for any biographer of the Buddha is the enormous amount of information that is scattered throughout the thousands of pages of canonical literature. This information is...

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 ...

Taoism teaches the basic principles of living a long and healthy life.

Jataka Tales: Volume 2: Folk Tales of the Buddha’s Previous Lives

by Eric Van Horn

The Jātaka Tales are the Buddhist equivalent of Aesop’s Fables. They are morality stories. In the Buddhist cultures of that time, these were the stories that children grew up hearing. They were the popular entertainment of their time. Families would gather together in the evening after the day’s work was done and share these tales. And it is from these stories that people learned about the standards of conduct for followers of the Buddha.Like Aesop’s Fables, the main characters in these stories can be a king, a merchant, a craftsperson, or an animal. This collection contains stories 51-100 of the 547 total stories. Jātaka 68 tells the lovely story about the Buddha and an old couple who - seemingly confused – turn out to have been his parents in many previous lives. Jātaka 72 bri...

The Little Book of Buddhist Wisdom (The Little Books on Buddhism 4)

by Eric Van Horn

There are many aspects of Buddhism found in most religions. These include ethics and morality, altruism and iconic stories of inspirational people. But The Little Book of Buddhist Wisdom looks at what makes Buddhism unique.

This begins with the most central teaching of Buddhism, The Four Noble Truths. The Four Noble Truths identify our fundamental problem of life and its cause. But more importantly The Four Noble Truths provide the antidote as well, the course of training that leads to greater skill and greater happiness. This path culminates in final release and transcendent knowing.

The law of karma states that our actions have consequences. We are not victims of determinism, random chaos or an external authority. While the law of karma allows for circumstances ...

Desire and Suffering

by Anonymous

Are you bothered by intrusive desires? Are you alienated by a false tone in your culture and society? If so, this short book may help. Combining the insights of science, psychology and religion, and without appeal to dogma, mysticism or the irrational, the writer encourages and empowers readers to challenge those of their desires that provoke fruitless pain. It is argued that a metaphorical satanic "Guide", personifying a plethora of noxious commercial agents at work in modern society, saturates physical and intellectual public space with seductive distortions and lies whose intent and effect is to promote desire - the corollary of which is a society marked by confusion, dissatisfaction and suffering. This "Guide" being our own collective socio-economic creation, like the biblical Satan H...
