As a guide for newcomers to the Buddha Dhamma the Truth which the Buddha awakened to and subsequently taught , this book is an invaluable guide. In it are contained the essential teachings of Buddhism. The Handbook is especially useful for those who approach the Buddha's teaching not as a subject for scholarly study but as a means to understand and ennoble their lives. Venerable Buddhadasa is well known for the readiness with which he gives non-literal interpretations of Buddhist texts.

He does not hesitate to reject as naive a word-for-word interpretation that has no bearing on real life. The format to "Buddha Dhamma for Students" is as answers to questions a non-Buddhist is likely to ask about the fundamentals of Buddhism.

It is the results of two talks given by Ajahn Buddhadasa in January to students at Thammasat University, Bangkok.

He goes back to the original principles pointed out by the Buddha, explaining these simply and directly, and showing that their relevance is timeless.

Kamma is an interesting subject because it concerns everyone and there are many different aspects of it. There are many natural laws that govern our lives but the most important is the law of kamma-vipaka. In a discourse A. Having willed, one acts through body, speech and mind". This means that intentional action is kamma, and vipaka is the result or effects of it.

The result may ripen immediately, later in this life or in a future life. Master Chin Kung. The Art of Living with Ven. Included is a glossary and a contact list of Ven.

Master Chin Kung's teaching centres around the world. These are Dharma Talks given in Australia by Ven. The teachings of Master Chin Kung are based on true sincerity towards others; purity of mind; equality in everything we see; proper understanding of ourselves and our environment; compassion by helping others in a wise and unconditional way. See through to the truth of impermanence; let go of all wandering thoughts and attachments; accord with conditions to go along with the environment.

A Dharma Talk given by Ven. Transcribed and translated into English by the Dallas Buddhist Association. In this talk Venerable Master Chin Kung gives us an explanation of his understanding of Buddhism as an education rather than as a religion. There are chapters on the author's own experience of Buddhism and the methodology and symbolism of the Buddhist Educational System. It is primarily because, this is the only original poem written in English on the Buddha, throughout the long history of Buddhism.

This distinction is quite necessary to be established, because there are translations of original Pali works into English and other languages.

Some of these are outstanding instances of spiritual poetry. Sir Edwin Arnold, the Author of this epic poem, was initially persuaded to compose this sacred work, as a result of his deep and abiding desire to aid in the better and mutual understanding between East and West.

Weragoda Sarada. In this life of the Buddha's personal attendant, Venerable Ananda, we see that in his character and outlook, Ananda was touchingly and movingly human. This was partly because of his simple and charming behaviour, and his ever-present readiness to help anyone who was in distress or difficulty.

In spite of his administrative and organisational responsibilities as the Buddha's attendant, Ananda displayed a deep intellectuality and a profound grasp of abstruse philosophic concepts.

Chatsumarn Kabilsingh Ph. Chatsumarn Kabilsingh provides answers to questions often asked about women and the ordination issue and related topics. She responds to such questions as: In the Buddha's time what role did women play in Buddhism?

Why cannot women become buddhas? What is the Buddhist attitude towards prostitution? What is an attitude of a Buddhist towards abortion? What is the unique characteristic in American Buddhism which might interest a feminist? Today, when the role of Women in Society is an issue of worldwide interest it is opportune that we should pause to look at it from a Buddhist perspective.

In the recent past, a number of books have been written on the changing status of women in Hindu and Islamic societies, but with regard to women in Buddhism, ever since the distinguished Pali scholar, Miss I.

Horner, wrote her book on Women under Primitive Buddhism, as far back as , very little interest has been taken in the subject.

It seems, therefore, justified to raise again the question whether the position of women in Buddhist societies was better than that in non-Buddhist societies of Asia. We will look briefly into the position in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Burma and Tibet, at a time before the impact of the West was ever felt. While walking along the path to liberation a Buddhist has to live in the world and deal with the conditions of worldly existence.

This problem is likely to be felt especially acutely by the lay Buddhist, who may find that the demands and attractions of secular life tend to pull him or her away from the path to deliverance.

However, the Buddha was not unaware of or unconcerned about this dilemma confronted by his lay disciples, but gave it his careful attention.

He taught his lay followers how to organize lay life in accordance with the ethical principles of the Dhamma and how to lead successful lay lives without deviating from the path of rectitude. This booklet is meant as a brief introduction to the subject rather than a detailed explanation. Imagine a life partner, a family member or a close friend of yours is dying. How might she or he be feeling? Facing death, being in pain maybe.

What are her or his intimate needs and wishes? What happens to us when staying with a dying person? How can we deal with the sorrow, the confusing thoughts and the trying situation? How should we communicate with her or him and with the family members and friends?

When a beloved person is dying we are touched to our deepest core. Difficult, painful emotions may rush up, stirring in our hearts. Since I have chosen to put this subject in the context of Buddhism, it seems desirable, first of all, to discuss the significance of the first precept in Buddhism of not taking life.

This in turn raises two fundamental questions: Can the first precept be fairly construed to prohibit meat eating? The idea of a pilgrimage came from the Buddha himself.

Before He passed into Mahaparinibbana, the Buddha advised pious disciples to visit four places that may be for their inspiration after He was gone. De Silva.

The purpose of this book is threefold. Firstly it aims to critically examine the fundamentalist approach to Christianity and thereby highlight its many logical, philosophical and ethical problems.

The third aim of this book is to awaken in Buddhists a deeper appreciation for their own religion. This is an account of the process of casting a Buddha statue: a case study of the making of Phra Buddha Dhammacakra. The process of casting explained and illustrated. An Introduction of Buddhism. Rudiments of Mental-collectiveness. Dhammacakra Mudra: the meaning.

It's not meant to be a didactic treatise on Pali Buddhism. The first covers the side of doctrine, and the primary response it elicits is understanding; the second covers the side of discipline, in the broadest sense of that word, and the primary response it calls for is practice. In the structure of the teaching these two principles lock together into an indivisible unity called the dhamma-vinaya, the doctrine-and-discipline, or, in brief, the Dhamma.

These Dhamma talks were mainly given to the women who stayed at her centre to practice meditation. After listening with calm and centred mind, they would all sit in meditation together. Granville Dharmawardena. Dharmawardena points out that the reason why classical science cannot explain rebirth is due to inherent limitations in classical science. Modern science has transcended these limitations, and therefore rebirth is within the scope of modern science. Modern science accepts rebirth as a scientifically acceptable phenomenon through the same tests used to prove scientific acceptability of generally accepted modern science phenomena.
