A Meditator's HandbookCurrent Canadian Price, Nov. 2015: $ 6.50 (email for price update, as our prices rise and fall with current exchange rate between US/Canadian currencies. Prices on this site are NOT current!)
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.

Buddhism & Social Action  WH285-6

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.

     Similes of the Buddha
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.

The Art of Dying edited by Virginia Hamilton, $ 13.00

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.
