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 ...

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 present book, Itivuttaka, belongs to the Pāḷi Tipiṭaka, the authorized recension for the Theravāda Buddhism. It is unique in the Buddhist Teachings in that it contains verses recited and collected by a woman named Khujjuttarā (declared by Lord Buddha to be foremost of those who were learned), a maid-servant of the famous Queen Sāmāvati (declared by Lord Buddha to be foremost of those who dwelt in friendship). Whenever Lord Buddha was in Kosambi, Khujjuttarā would go and listen to the teachings. Upon her return she would recite the teachings to the royalty that included queens, princesses, and their maid-servants. To emphasize that she was telling the words of the enlightened one, she prefaced each teaching with the standard formula of “This was said by the Blessed one, ...

Jataka Tales: Volume 1: Folk Tales of the Buddha’s Previous Lives

by Eric Van Horn

The Jataka 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. 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. In this collection, which contains the first 50 of the 547 total stories, we learn about a foolish merchant in Jataka #1. We read about a wise monkey who outwits an ogre to save his followers in Jataka 20. In Jataka 19 we learn about the Buddhist reve...

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 ...

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.
