Bill Crecelius has
written a straightforward, practical guide for those who seek to
establish themselves in Vipassana meditation. He is an experienced
Vipassana Teacher who was one of Goenkaji’ earliest Western students.
Drawing on his own long experience in the practice, A Meditator’s Handbook
is full of encouragement, homely examples and vivid illustrations. It
contains a wealth of sound friendly advice. It is recommended for any
Vipassana meditator, and especially for those who have just started
practicing. Excerpt from the book:
I have learned how to keep my practice together and make it grow. I
would like to share this with you. First as a single man living in an
area with no other meditators, then living in an area with many other
Vipassana meditator friends and finally as a married man with a Dhamma
partner, I adapted my life to one of living in the Dhamma.
The path of the monk is high and lofty. It is said that the path for
the monk is clear and smooth and easy to walk on. It is high above the
muck and mire. There are no stones, pebbles, sharp rocks or thorns.
Unfortunately for us poor householders this is not the case. Our lives
are bound up in worldly responsibilities, jobs, family ties, and
mortgage payments. Unlike the monks, our path is full of worldly
impediments and distractions. It is for this reason that I think A Meditator’s Handbook might help Vipassana students on their walk along this path of purification.
|On Living Life Well
|This collection of talks by internationally
known Buddhist scholars presents complex Buddhist insights into living
life guided by the Noble Eightfold Path, and how to live more freely
through it. Set in the context of Sri Lankan culture,topics include:
Psychological well-being, The basis for ethical living, Discerning
meaning in this life, The centrality of meditation, The monastic
experience in Sri Lanka, a way to respond constructively to
our global human foibles,Explanations of ancient religious practices
still current today.Engaged discussions with American students and
question-and-answer sessions are included.|
|The Buddha taught of the possibility of a true freedom as something inherent in
human nature. For followers of the Buddha's teaching, the ultimate freedom is to achieve full
release from the root causes of all suffering: greed, hatred and
delusion, which clearly are also the root causes of all social evils, harmful to others. To weaken,
and finally eliminate them in oneself, and, as far as possible, in
society, is the basis of Buddhist ethics. And here Buddhist social
action has its place. |
|Facets of Buddhist Thought: Collected Essays
|This book of essay's topics include, among
many others, the background of early Buddhism; the significance of the
Buddha's birthday; the Buddhist doctrines of karma and reincarnation;
the Buddhist conception of truth, good and evil, Nirvana, the
individual, the universe and the material world; the Buddhist view of
nature and destiny; Buddhism and the caste system; Buddhism and
international law; and the contemporary relevance of the Buddha's
teachings to the modern world.|
The Art of Dying edited by Virginia Hamilton, $ 13.00
|Similes of the Buddha
|This book is an introductory guide to the
rich, wonderful, and profound world of Buddhist similes. The Buddha
often used similes as a skilful means to facilitate the understanding of
teachings that otherwise could appear abstruse and dry to his
listeners. This book offers the reader through the use of these similes
an opportunity to widen and deepen one's understanding of the Teaching
of the Buddha.|
A thoughtful look at the greatest challenge facing each of us: death,
whether our own or a loved one’s. Weaving together material from many
sources, this collection provides a context for understanding death and
experiencing it with awareness and equanimity. Here are passages from
the Pali texts, writings of S.N. Goenka, poems, theoretical expositions,
and questions and answers. But perhaps the most compelling parts are
the sections by or about meditators confronting the end of life. With
humility, tenderness and often a smile, they learn to accept their own
impermanence, suffering and non-self. Their courage and compassion give
every Vipassana meditator an example to which
we can aspire. —William Hart, author, The Art of Living
and Wonder: When and Why the World Appears Radiant by Dr. Paul Fleischman: $ 18.95
What do a marigold, starlight over South Africa, and the birth of a
child have in common? Every person, plant, and star springs up from
information compounded by interaction. We are embedded in an ancient,
intricate world. Changing combinations of atoms pass through the long
filter of history and natural law, to form planet Earth, whales, and our
own thoughts. Based on the growth of evidence explaining how the world
is put together, we have become the first generation to have a narrative
that unites electron motion to our breath, and that connects hydrogen
fusion in the sun to the energy that powers our own minds. We can
describe how the proteins in our mitochondria pinch and place into
perfect position metal ions that were forged in exploding stars. We
cohere for a moment, suspended between information, order, and
transformation of all things. This book is a scientific and literary
exploration of those discoveries that reveal our deepest identity.
Through our urge to understand and communicate, we have uncovered new
meanings that infuse our days with wonder.
