The Monastery Rules: Buddhist Monastic Organization in Pre-Modern Tibet (South Asia Across the Disciplines)

by Berthe Jansen

At publication date, a free ebook version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program.

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,...

Meditation: First and Last Step - From Understanding to Practice

by Ivan Antic

In this book, you will find everything you need for the practice of meditation the way the oldest and greatest authorities, Buddha and Patanjali presented the matter leaving a legacy for humankind that left an indelible trace. An additional point would refer to the sense of purpose: why the man needs meditation in the first place, why it is so appealing to the spiritually mature people, and what its relationship with the soul is.Unlike other practices of meditation, that deal with the mind only (mantra), or with the body only (yoga), or with emotions only (bhakti), which often lead to discrepancies that have to be adjusted through various rituals and beliefs, the practice of meditation presented here, encompasses all of these dimensions of man in a harmonious unit.

Travel Guide to the Buddha's Path: The Buddha's training in conduct, meditation, and understanding

by Van Horn, Eric

Starting with the first time that you sit down to meditate, the Travel Guide to the Buddha’s Path takes you all the way to the end of the path.
