Vietnam Travel Magic #7: Hoi An Pilgrimage

by Scott David Plumlee

I entered a massive cavern, awash with majestic sunlight that filtered down through natural fissures in the ceiling. The faint whiff of incense smoke rose as birds swirled around the chamber; their echoing chirps mixed with the sound of monk’s chanting. Carved into the back wall was a colossal statue of Buddha, seated in a peaceful pose of deep meditation; inspiring me to take a moment and enjoy this sacred sanctuary. My mind began to relax as I allowed the sound of the Aum-chanting monks to wash over me like warm surf. I closed my eyes, focused on the sound, and slowly quieted the dialogue within my mind - until - I unknowingly slipped into meditation.Curious? Scroll up and click the LOOK INSIDE for a free 7-page book preview!In this seventh episode of the Vietnam Travel Magic serie...

Even though Buddhism is commonly listed among the world’s most widespread religions, there are many who would say that Buddhism is not a religion at all but in fact a spiritual journey.
Originally founded in India in the 6th Century BC by Siddhartha Gautama (the first Enlightened One) Buddhism strives to help people bring an end to their suffering by renouncing desire, craving, and ignorance in their lives by knowing and following the Four Noble Truths.

There are two major branches of Buddhism: Theravada and Mahayana. Theravada Buddhism is most common throughout Southeastern Asia and Sri Lanka. Ma...

Buddhism for Beginners: 2 Books in 1 (Buddhism for Beginners & Zen Buddhism for Beginners)

by Emerald Moon

Book 1: Buddhism for BeginnersBuddhism has been around for thousands of years, but it was not until recently when people all over the world have started to gain interest in it once more. Perhaps, it is because they are drawn to the teachings of Buddhism that center on themes, such as living life in moderation, letting go of desires and being compassionate towards others. The physical and mental benefits gained from such Buddhist practices as meditation, yoga and mindfulness may have also contributed to its popularity. Yet, as people slowly begin to introduce Buddhist principles into their lifestyle, many of their questions regarding this ancient way of life still need simple answers. If you are someone who wants to know more about Buddhism and how you can incorporate its principles into yo...

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 ...

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...

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?
