I met German-born Analayo some years ago when he was living a
life of intensive meditation and study in a small retreat centre in Sri
Lanka. He told me how his study of the Buddha’s original meditation
teaching had led him to question established approaches to practice.

Since then, he has published an acclaimed work on the
Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha’s main teaching on mindfulness, taken
full Bhikkhu ordination, published many groundbreaking essays on Pali
Buddhism, especially comparisons between the Pali Suttas and the Chinese
versions, the Agamas and become a widely respected scholar and
academic. As this interview shows, he is above all a deeply devoted
Dharma practitioner

Vishvapani: How do you come to be living as a Buddhist monk here in Sri Lanka?

Analayo: I studied martial arts in Berlin and I found that the
discipline offered a way to express and contain my anger, but it didn’t
address the root of the problem. Along with martial arts I also learned
Soto Zen meditation, and when I found that through practising that some
of my anger no longer arose I became very interested in meditation. I
travelled to Asia and ended up in Thailand where I did a course in
mindfulness of breathing with Ajahn Buddhadasa. With Zen you are told to
just sit, but no more, and through Buddhadasa’s teaching I now received
some instruction in meditation.

Then came the start of the rainy season and the custom in Thailand is
for many people to become monks for the three months of the rains. So
that’s what I did, and I stayed in a cave on a hilltop, surrounded on
three sides by the sea, and there I had the opportunity to live a very
meditative life.

Once I was in robes I found that the monastic lifestyle supported
meditation so I decided to continue with it. Later I came to Sri Lanka
and stayed with Godwin Samaratane, who was an excellent meditation
teacher, and in 1995 he sent me to develop the Lewelle Meditation
Centre. Here we have a main house with a small community, and we’ve
built several kutis on the hill where I stay and other visitors can come
to meditate.

Godwin brought out aspects of meditation that are in the suttas [the
records of the Buddha’s discourses recorded in the Pali language] but
which have been neglected in Theravada tradition. He had a very
open-minded approach that emphasised emptiness, working constructively
with emotions, and developing metta (loving-kindness). He
wanted me to provide scholarly back-up for what he was doing, so he
introduced me to a university professor and the people at the university
just told me that I would be doing a PhD!

V: As a dedicated meditator, what was your motivation for engaging with academic study?

A: I wanted a better understanding of the Buddha’s teaching, and I
hoped to approach Buddhism both from the inside perspective of a
Buddhist monk and meditator, and also to look at it scientifically.
Being a meditating monk the most obvious topic was satipatthana, the development of mindfulness, and I found that there is almost no research on satipatthana or the Satipatthana Sutta, the principal canonical text concerning it.

The book I have eventually written is not only a vindication of
Godwin’s teaching, but also an attempt to go back to the roots and ask,
what were the Buddha’s basic ideas? What did he mean by insight
meditation? What is written in the Satipatthana Sutta, and how can other
suttas illuminate it?

The book reflects my particular perspective as both a scholar and a
practitioner. Academics sometimes go off at tangents because without
experience of practice they can get caught up in ideas that are a long
way from the original meanings. On the other hand meditation teachers
tend either to express their ideas and experience without going back to
the sources, or else to be steeped in the Theravada tradition. For
traditional Theravadins the suttas, which recount the Buddhas
discourses, and the commentaries, which were written later, are one
block. They see everything through the eyes of Buddhaghosha, the author
of the Visuddhimagga [the most important commentary] unaware
that there was an historical gap of 800 years between the Buddha and
Buddhaghosha. So I wanted to separate these out. The ideas and
techniques in the commentaries may well be good, but it’s important to
know that some weren’t taught by the Buddha.

V: How would you characterise the Buddha’s approach to meditation as it emerges from the discourses?

A: In the discourses when a monk comes to the Buddha and says he
wants to meditate, the Buddha usually just gives him a theme like,
‘don’t cling to anything.’ The monk goes off and when he returns he is
an arahant! [one with a high level of realisation]. In other
words, the Buddha gives the general pattern, not a precise technique
such as you find in the Visuddhimagga, whose approach we have
inherited. When the Buddha discusses concentration he talks about what
happens with the mind. He says that when pamojja (delight)
arises the mind naturally becomes joyful, and from that come happiness,
calm, tranquillity and concentration. So you should enjoy meditating,
and in enjoying itself the mind becomes unified.

At the same time the Buddha has a very clear, analytical approach,
and when he speaks of ‘the five hindrances’, for example, he is pointing
to specific experiences that imply specific antidotes. But that’s
different from issuing technical instructions. You could say that the
Buddha didn’t teach meditation so much as the skill of meditating or the
ability to meditate. He was concerned with stirring the natural
potential of individuals to awaken the mind on the basis of a very clear
distinction that never gets lost between what is wholesome in the mind
and what is unwholesome.

V: What difference does the distinction between commentarial
and sutta approaches to meditation make for what you do when you

A: Being an ‘anger-type’ I thought it was important to develop metta. (loving-kindness). In Thailand I followed the Visuddhimagga approach of sending metta
to oneself, a friend, a neutral person and an enemy, and verbalising
good wishes. I found I got stuck in ideas, and when I turned to the
suttas I saw that the Buddha just says that, ‘with a mind full of metta’ (that is an attitude or feeling of loving-kindness) ‘he radiates metta
in all directions’. There’s no verbalisation, no particular people,
just this radiation. That made an incredible change in my practice and
from then on it evolved very strongly.

Another example is the counting methods in the commentarial approach
to the mindfulness of breathing, which are also not found in the suttas.
The Anapanasati Sutta
describes how in sixteen steps you can be aware of the breath, the
body, feelings, and what is happening in the mind. This extends to
seeing the impermanence of the breath.

This is an excellent approach to practice. Firstly, you calm the mind
by staying predominantly with bodily phenomena. Then you become aware
of your whole self as it sits in meditation, and then you notice how the
breath and the body become calmer. As soon as that happens thinking
activity also calms down, and joy arises. You’re aware of these changes
and encourage them, and that takes you away from the thinking activity
of the mind.

The commentarial approach implies narrowing the focus of attention
onto one point and only prescribes contemplating the most prominent
characteristics of the physical breath – not the many other dimensions
that are described in the sutta. Because you have so little material to
work on, the practice can become boring, so your mind wanders, and you
need counting as food for the mind. But counting can take you away from
the bodily experience of the breath to conceptual ideas about it.
However, if the mind has something it likes it will stay with it, and
that’s the way to get into deep concentration.

V: What about the importance of one-pointed concentration (ekagata), which is usually taught as the way to become fully absorbed?

A: Ekagata can also be translated as ‘unification of the
mind.’ So in developing meditative absorption it’s not so much that you
narrow everything down to a fine point. It’s more that everything
becomes ‘one’. If I take a large object and move it around you have no
trouble following it; but if you try to stay with a pin-point it’s very
difficult and that can create tension.

As you go deeper into meditation (in developing the higher states of meditative absorption known as jhana/dhyana) you need a reference point. But to enter jhana you have to let go of the five physical senses. So the experience of the breath becomes a mental equivalent of it (a nimitta)
not a felt experience. Sometimes meditators experience a light that is
an equivalent of the breath, which may envelop you entirely. Or the nimitta could be an experience of happiness or metta, or just mentally knowing the breath, and the mind becomes one with that.

An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We
often translate that as ‘concentration’, but that can suggest a certain
stiffness. Perhaps ‘unification’ is a better rendition, as samadhi means ‘to bring together’. Deep samadhi isn’t at all stiff. It’s a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience.

V: I practice the five stages of the mettabhavana and I find that there’s a definite psychological value in that approach.

A: I’m not saying that the commentarial approach is wrong, only that
if it doesn’t work for you then there is an alternative. And whatever
practice you follow be aware if it comes from the Buddha or someone

I know people who say the five-stage mettabhavana or the mindfulness
of breathing with counting works for them. That’s completely OK. I’m
trying to add to the commentarial view, and to broaden perspectives, not
to ask people to throw out the commentaries or their teacher’s
approach, and only listen to me. I have been practising the Goenka
technique for ten years and I got very good results with it. But I
wouldn’t say that it’s the only correct technique.

In the discourses the Buddha didn’t say that there’s one way for
everybody.  In the Theravada tradition there have been many debates
about the relationship between samatha (absorption) and vipassana (insight) as goals of meditation. But the discourses say that you can practice samatha first, and then vipassana, or the other way around, or both together. Both samatha and vipassana develop the mind and the two co-operate, but how you engage with them depends on the individual.

V: The breadth of this approach implies knowing yourself sufficiently so that you can plot a course.

A: The process of developing insight is a matter of gaining
self-knowledge and learning to act accordingly. If you sit down to
meditate you need to feel the tendency of the mind – what it needs and
what it wants to do. More broadly, I know that my tendency is towards
anger and that means that I need to develop tranquillity to balance my

V: You place great emphasis on mindfulness, and also to have a very broad view of its implications.

A: The presentation of mindfulness in the discourses suggests an
open, receptive state of mind in which you let things come to you. It’s
different from concentration (samatha) in that concentration
means focus and mindfulness means breadth, but without mindfulness you
can’t develop concentration. It’s also an important basis for insight
meditation (vipassana). Mindfulness has many facets. Many
teachers speak of mindfulness of the body, but people don’t talk much
about the contemplations of feelings, mind and dhammas that are
also in the Satipatthana Sutta. But if you take any experience – like
sitting here now – you can be aware of the bodily aspect, how you feel
about what we are discussing; the state of mind that we are each in; and
you can see it in the light of the Buddha’s teachings. Each situation
has these four aspects and mindfulness can focus on one or all of these
as appropriate

V: How has studying these suttas affected your own meditation?

A: It’s the ground of my practice. Before I started my academic work I
decided that however many hours I studied I would spend more hours
meditating. That’s why it took me six years to complete my work. I would
never lose touch with my meditation practice for the sake of
theoretical study. On the other hand, though, a good knowledge of
Buddha’s teachings ‘clears the path’ as it enables you to know what
you’re doing and then you don’t experience doubt. Now I can learn from
various meditation teachers without getting confused because I know what
lines I am pursuing in my own practice.

The Buddha gave the talks that are recorded in the suttas because he
thought people should know what they are doing. Meditation is like
eating and the knowledge you have gained from the suttas is like the
digestive juice that makes it possible for your body to digest the
nutrients. The two belong together, but meditation has to have the
priority. Doing PhD research is perhaps going to an extreme. But
studying informed sources can be helpful for everyone. They can shine a
beam of light onto your practice and that can inspire it.

Analysis of the Jhãnas
in Theravãda Buddhist Meditation

252 Pages - (1.3 MB) - Free

of the Jhãnas in Theravãda Buddhist Meditation
- Ven. H. Gunaratana

This work, by Ven. Henepola Gunaratana, provides an analytical
study of the Jhãnas, as they are an important set of
meditative attainments in the contemplative discipline of
Theravãda Buddhism. Despite their frequent appearance
in the texts, the exact role of the Jhãnas in the Buddhist
path has not been settled with unanimity by Theravãda
scholars, who are still divided over the question as to whether
they are necessary for attaining Nibbana. The primary purpose
of this dissertation is to determine the precise role of the
Jhãnas in the Theravãda Buddhist presentation
of the way to liberation.

For source material the work relies upon the three principal
classes of authoritative Theravãda texts: the Pali
Tipitaka, its commentaries, and its sub-commentaries. To traditional
canonical investigations modern methods of philosophical and
psychological analysis are applied in order to clarify the
meanings implicit in the original sources. The examination
covers two major areas: first the dynamics of Jhãna
attainment, and second, the function of the Jhãnas
in realizing the ultimate goal of Buddhism, Nibbana or final
liberation from suffering

The Wings to Awakening / An Anthology from the Pali Canon

The Wings to Awakening / An Anthology from the Pali Canon - Translated and Explained by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

anthologies of the Buddha’s teachings have appeared in English, but
this is the first to be organized around the set of teachings that the
Buddha himself said formed the heart of his message: the Wings to
Awakening (bodhi-pakkhiya-dhamma). The material is arranged in three
parts, preceded by a long Introduction. The Introduction tries to define
the concept of Awakening so as to give a clear sense of where the Wings
to Awakening are headed. It does this by discussing the Buddha’s
accounts of his own Awakening, with special focus on the way in which
the principle of skillful kamma (in Sanskrit, karma) formed both the
“how” and the “what” of that Awakening: The Buddha was able to reach
Awakening only by developing skillful kamma — this is the “how”; his
understanding of the process of developing skillful kamma is what
sparked the insights that constituted Awakening — this is the “what.”

the Preface: The word Pali means “the Text”, though
it has now come to be the name of a language. Magadhi was
the original name for Pali. It was the language current in
the land of Magadha during the time of the Buddha. The elements
of Pali can be mastered in a few months, Pali opens one’s
ears to the Dhamma and the music of the Buddha’s speech. This
little book on Pali is intended to be an elementary guide
for beginners.

the Preface to the Third Edition: Most introductory Pali grammar
books consist of lessons that teach the elements of the language
in stages, but because of that they are also very difficult
to use as a reference when you need to look up a noun’s declension,
or a verb’s conjugation. This book because of it’s practical
and comprehensive coverage of the elements of the Pali language
in complete chapters is a very useful reference. This book
was also not written for linguistics experts, but for students
with little experience studying Pali grammar.

A Photo Essay of the Four Places of Buddhist Pilgrimage in India

A Photo Essay of the Four Places of Buddhist Pilgrimage in India —
Bro. Chan Khoon San

aim of this photo essay is to share my experience and knowledge with
fellow Buddhists about the benefits of undertaking a pilgrimage
to the Four Great Places with the correct mental attitude…
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. They are Lumbini, where He was born; Buddhagaya, where He
attained Supreme Enlightenment; Deer Park in Sarnath, where
He preached the First Sermon; and Kusinara, where He passed
into Mahaparinibbana. The pious disciple should visit
these places and look upon them with feelings of reverence,
reflecting on the particular event of the Buddha’s life connected
with each place. Since the Mahaparinibbana of the Buddha,
these four shrines of Buddhism have become the focal points
for pious disciples to rally around and seek inspiration.


Buddhist Pilgrimage (Third Edition)

Buddhist Pilgrimage (Third Edition) - Bro. Chan Khoon San

This is the third edition of ‘‘Buddhist Pilgrimage’ since
it was first published in 2002. It comes with a new cover design and
contains many new topics and fresh information on several Buddhist
sites. An error concerning the religious history of the Matha Kuar
shrine in Kushinagar has been rectified. Since 2002, the author has
re-visited the Buddhist circuit seven times and travelled to many new
Buddhist heritage sites, notably the Ananda Stupa in Hajipur; Pava
near Kusinara; Lauriya Nandangarh in northern Bihar; Kosambi in
Allahabad; Ramagama and Devadaha in Nepal; Sanchi in Madhya Pradesh;
the Ajanta Caves in Ajanta; and Diksha Bhumi in Nagpur, Maharashtra. A
chance remark he heard about the Buddha’s alms bowl still existing in
Afghanistan prompted the author to carry out a research of its
whereabouts after the Buddha had donated it to the Licchavis before
his Parinibbana. The result is a new article entitled ‘The Journey of
the Buddha’s Alms Bowl’ in PART III, 5, page 153. Among the colour
plates, I have included some rare Buddhist sites in Northern Pakistan.
Although the light of Dhamma no longer shines in that country, yet it
possesses some of the most beautiful Buddhist relics from its
glorious past. Sadly, many of them were destroyed by the Talibans who
overran the Swat Valley in 2007 e.g. Jehanabad Buddha carved on rock
and Gandharan sculptures in Swat Museum.

They compared brain activity in volunteers who were novice
meditators to that of Buddhist monks who had spent more
than 10,000 hours in meditation. The task was to practice
“Loving-Kindness” meditation, generating a feeling
of compassion toward all beings.

The novice meditators “showed a slight increase in
gamma activity, but most monks showed extremely large increases
of a sort that has never been reported before in the neuroscience
literature,” says Prof. Davidson, suggesting that mental
training can bring the brain to a greater level of consciousness.

Meditation — Ven. Sujiva

Loving-kindness Meditation or Metta Bhavana and other Sublime
States by Ven. Sujiva is a clear and comprehensive step-by-step
explanation of the systematic practice. It is based on the
Visuddhimagga or The Path of Purification by Buddhagosha.
The texts describe metta as characterised by promoting the
aspect of welfare. Amity, goodwill, friendliness and loving-kindness
are some words used to describe this mental state. There is
no better way to know it than to study it as it occurs in
one’s own and others’ minds. It is a totally unselfish and
pure state of mind that brings profit to oneself and others
now and hereafter.

- With Love & Other Meditations — Ven. Visuddhacara.

The three most important things in life are love, kindness
and wisdom. If we have made these three values the priorities
of our life, then our life will have been well-lived. When
we die we can only have happiness when we look back and not
regrets. Wealth, fame, power, status, worldly success and
pleasures — these are insignificant compared to love,
kindness and wisdom. Cultivate the latter. If we spend our
life cultivating this trio, our birth and life will have been
worthwhile; it will not have been in vain. In this booklet,
Ven. Visuddhàcàra shares his understanding of
this practice of mindfulness and lovingkindness with a view
to encourage all of us to walk the path.

the Breath in Mind & Lessons in Samadhi — Ajaan
Lee Dhammadharo.

This is a ‘how to’ book. It teaches the liberation of the
mind, not as a mind-boggling theory, but as a very basic skill
that starts with keeping the breath in mind. The teachings
here are drawn from the works of Ajaan Lee Dhammadharo (1906-61),
one of Thailand’s most renowned teachers of Buddhist meditation
practices. Ajaan Lee was a forest monk - one who prefers to
live in the seclusion of the forest and makes his meditation
the central theme of his practice - so his teachings grow
out of personal, practical experience, although he also makes
a point of relating them to standard Buddhist doctrine.

Analysis of the Jhãnas

of the Jhãnas in Theravãda Buddhist Meditation
- Ven. H. Gunaratana

This work, by Ven. Henepola Gunaratana, provides an analytical
study of the Jhãnas, as they are an important set of
meditative attainments in the contemplative discipline of
Theravãda Buddhism. Despite their frequent appearance
in the texts, the exact role of the Jhãnas in the Buddhist
path has not been settled with unanimity by Theravãda
scholars, who are still divided over the question as to whether
they are necessary for attaining Nibbana. The primary purpose
of this dissertation is to determine the precise role of the
Jhãnas in the Theravãda Buddhist presentation
of the way to liberation.

For source material the work relies upon the three principal
classes of authoritative Theravãda texts: the Pali
Tipitaka, its commentaries, and its sub-commentaries. To traditional
canonical investigations modern methods of philosophical and
psychological analysis are applied in order to clarify the
meanings implicit in the original sources. The examination
covers two major areas: first the dynamics of Jhãna
attainment, and second, the function of the Jhãnas
in realizing the ultimate goal of Buddhism, Nibbana or final
liberation from suffering.

Zen/Ch’an Meditation and Wisdom

Sweet Dews of Ch’an — by Reverend Cheng Kuan.

Ch’an or Zen is the outcome of meditation. There are
two “right” or “highest” purposes of Ch’an.
The first purpose is to achieve “Dhyana.” Dhyana
is a combination of relaxation, concentration and calmness
or tranquility. The second purpose is, using your very composed
and tranquil mind, to observe clearly all the dharmas or phenomena
externally and internally. As an outcome of Dhyana, you will
be able to observe these phenomena very clearly because your
“mental mirror” is very clear, for there are no
more disturbances to veil it. Out of these observations will
come Transcendental Wisdom, which in Sanskrit is called “Prajna.”

of Moral Concern in Theravada Buddhism: Toward a Theory
of the Relation Between Tranquility and Insight — Ethan

are two main branches of Buddhist meditation techniques: insight
meditation and tranquility meditation. Insight meditation
is aimed at cultivating wisdom; tranquility meditation is
aimed at cultivating calmness. Tradition generally considers
the first to have been a new form of meditation invented by
the historical Buddha and the second to have been highly developed
by Indian practitioners by the time of the Buddha’s life.
The most common story is that the Buddha learned all that
his meditation teachers had to offer and, still unsatisfied,
developed his own type of meditation: vipassana. After he
developed this insight meditation, he achieved nirvana and
transcended suffering (dukkha). I find it useful to categorize
scholars who have written on the relationship between vipassana
and samatha into two groups: one group that considers vipassana
to be essential and samatha to be inessential in the pursuit
of nirvana, and a second group that views both samatha and
vipassana to be essential.

the teachings of the Buddha, he transformed his polity from
one of military conquest to one of Dharmavijaya — victory
by righteousness and truth. By providing royal patronage for
the propagation of Buddhism both within and beyond his empire,
he helped promote the metamorphosis of Buddhism into a world

Intuitive Awareness — Ajahn Sumedho

book is compiled from talks given mostly in 2001 by Ajahn Sumedho;
they convey an intuitive understanding of the Buddha’s
teaching which has arisen from over 35 years of practice as
an American born Buddhist monk. He is the senior Western disciple
of Ajahn Chah.

This approach starts with accepting ourselves as we are, not
as some ideal of whom we think we should be. By doing this a
relaxation can take place that creates space for insight to
arise. For some people this space arises as the sound of silence,
or simply a quiet or empty mind. However it manifests, this
points to the unconditioned; beyond body and mind objects. From
this place of spaciousness, social and personal conditioning
can be investigated or reflected upon, thus freeing the heart
from the delusion of identifying with the personality. This
is not a process of rejecting ourselves or of considering certain
thoughts and feelings as wrong, but of learning to be a silent
witness to all that arises without attaching to that experience
or rejecting it.

The opening essay, “A Buddhist Social Ethic for the New

social system fostered by global capitalism and the type of
social organization that might follow from a practical application
of Buddhist principles.

“A Buddhist Model for Economic and Social Development”
continues the argument by highlighting the economic, social,
and ecological costs of industrial-growth society, sketching
a more “people-friendly” alternative based on Buddhist

“The changing face of Buddhism” opens with the question
why, in traditional Buddhist countries, Buddhism today is losing
its appeal to the young, on its way to becoming little more
than a fossilized expression of ethnic culture; in attempting
to answer this question he proposes some new lines of emphasis
that might help to reverse this trend.

In “Sangha at the Crossroads” he explores the problems
that young monks face in finding a meaningful role in today’s
rapidly changing world.

Can Killing a Living Being Ever Be an Act of Compassion?
The analysis of the act of killing in the Abhidhamma and Pali
Commentaries — Rupert Gethin

In the Early Buddhist exegetical tradition, the notion that
intentionally killing a living being is wrong involves a claim
that certain mental states are present in the mind. The idea
that killing a living being might be a solution to the problem
of suffering runs counter to the Buddhist emphasis on dukkha
as a reality. The cultivation of friendliness in the face of
suffering is seen as something that can bring beneficial effects
for self and others in a situation where it might seem that
compassion should lead one to kill.

to all beings with children, we have to tap into the store of
knowledge accumulated by lay people and parents. It must be
knowledge which has grown out of years of living and loving
with children and young adults. Gregory Kramer, father of three
boys, shows us here with what subtle but precise adjustments
in the standard practice of loving-kindness he was able to anchor
in the lives of his children.

in English on the Buddha, throughout the long history of Buddhism.

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.

The Wisdom of Nagarjuna

Wisdom of Nagarjuna — Dr Peter Della Santina

Nagarjuna holds an almost unequaled place among the ranks of
those Buddhist saints who expounded the teaching of the Buddha
Sakyamuni for the benefit of the world. Nagarjuna revolutionized
the interpretation of the doctrine of the Enlightened One which
was current at his time and lent it a vitality and dynamism
which has continued to sustain it even to our day among the
votaries of the Mahayana. The revolution which Nagarjuna accomplished
within the fold of Buddhism was not a radical departure from
the original doctrine of the Buddha Sakyamuni. On the contrary,
the adherents of the Madhyamaka school are undoubtedly justified
in asserting that their interpretation represents the true import
of the doctrine of the Buddha and the essence of Buddhism.

of the Buddhas — Patriarch Ou-i’s… Commentary on
the Amitabha Sutra.

Of all the forms of Buddhism currently practiced in Asia, Pure
Land has been the most widespread for the past thousand years.
At the core of this school is a text of great beauty and poetry,
the Amitabha Sutra, intoned every evening in countless temples
and homes throughout the Mahayana world. This important text
shares with the Avatamsaka and Brahma Net sutras the distinction
of being among the few key scriptures preached spontaneously
by the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, without the customary request
from the assembly. Although several translations of the sutra
itself are available no major commentary appears to have been
published in English. The Van Hien Study Group is therefore
privileged to be associated with J.C.Cleary’s present rendering
of The Essentials of the Amitabha Sutra — a seminal Chinese
commentary by the T’ien-t’ai Master Ou-i (1599- 1655),
later recognized as the ninth Patriarch of the Pure Land school.

The Shobogenzo — Zen Master Eihei Dōgen

A new translation of a
Zen classic… The Shōbōgenzō is the recognized spiritual masterpiece by
the thirteenth century Japanese Sōtō Zen Master Eihei Dōgen. It is
comprised of discourses that he gave to his disciples, in person or in
writing, at various times between 1231 and his death twenty-two years
later at age fifty-three. These discourses cover a wide range of topics
pertinent to those in monastic life though often also relevant to those
training in lay life. He discusses matters of daily behavior and
religious ceremonial as well as issues involving the Master-disciple
relationship. He also explores the deeper meaning that informs the
so-called Zen kōan stories, which often puzzle readers by their seeming
illogicality and contrary nature.

Sutra on the Eight Realizations — Translation by Thich
Nhat Hanh

content of The Sutra on the Eight Realizations is grounded in
both Mahayana and Theravada viewpoints. Please treasure this
Sutra. When I was seventeen, and in my first year of novice
studies at a Buddhist Monastery, I had to study and memorize
it. This enabled me to easily combine the meaning of the Sutra
with meditation of breath counting. From this period until now,
44 years have passed and this Sutra is still an invaluable torch
lighting my path. Today I have the opportunity to present it
to you. I am grateful to this deep and miraculous Sutra. I join
my hands and respectfully recite, “Homage to the precious
Sutra on the Eight Realizations.” - Thich Nhat Hanh

Dying to Live - The Role of Karma in Dying and Rebirth —
Aggacitta Bhikkhu

purpose of this work is to present a comprehensive picture of
kamma and the often unpredictable role it plays in the process
of dying and rebirth according to orthodox Theravada doctrine.

the aid of colour diagrams, basic concepts of Abhidhamma are
first introduced in order to facilitate a thorough understanding
of what happens, on a microscopic level, to the body and mind
of a person dying to live again. Since kamma is inextricably
linked with Abhidhamma principles, and our main subject of discussion
is one of its specific roles, the whole of Chapter 2 is devoted
to an exposition of the nature of kamma and its various aspects,
classified according to four different ways of analysis.

3 begins by surveying the causes of death and the possible manifestations
of the kamma that is about to produce rebirth in the dying person,
and concludes by presenting a microscopic description, accompanied
by a colour diagram, of the actual process of dying and rebirth,
based on the basic principles of Abhidhamma introduced in Chapter

Chapter 4, the order in which specific types of kamma generate
rebirth is discussed with the help of many interesting storie’s
mostly extracted from the commentaries, but including a few
modern one’s and accompanied by pencil drawings.

Chapter 5 summarises and concludes this booklet with some proposals
for skilful dying, and a dramatic personal account of a young
monk’s own observations and masterly manipulation of the changing
visions experienced by a dying Buddhist devotee.

to talk about these things.” The material for the seminar
is taken mainly from two sources: traditional Buddhist teachings,
and contemporary writings in the field of caring for the dying.

The Many Faces of Death

The Many Faces of Death — Jacqui James

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. Dying and death becomes a great challenger,
breaking into our lives – which we try so hard to keep
smooth and under control.

The Varieties of Religious Experience — William

most influential book written on religion in the twentieth century.”
Paving the way for all modern spiritual thought, The Varieties
of Religious Experience was revolutionary in its view of religious
life as centered not within the Church, but solely within the
person. James, a vivid, subtle stylist writing for the skeptical,
nonspecialist reader, was the first to define spirituality as
“the feelings, acts, and experiences of individual men
in their solitude.”

One hundred years after its publication James’s work remains
even more vital than before. Beyond its influence on the founding
of Alcoholics Anonymous, beyond its influence on launching the
American pastoral counseling movement, and beyond its role in
spawning the psychology of religion, it remains a book that
empowers individuals and inspires readers with erudition, insight,
and kindness.

Bouda Quotes sou lavi

“Li pi bon pou ou konkeri tèt ou pase pou genyen yon mil batay. Lè sa a, viktwa a se pou ou. Li pa ka pran nan men ou. ”-Buddha

“Si ou te konnen sa mwen konnen sou pouvwa a nan ban nou pa ta kite yon pas repa yon sèl san yo pa pataje li nan kèk fason.”

“Aprann sa a soti nan dlo: fò boule yo ravin lan, men pwofondè nan oseyan yo kalm.”

pa gen anyen, kèlkeswa kote ou li li a, oswa ki te di li, pa gen
pwoblèm si mwen te di li, sof si li dakò ak pwòp rezon ou ak pwòp sans
komen ou.”

“Lang tankou yon kouto byen file … touye san desen san.”

verite sa a trip tout moun: Yon kè jenere, diskou bon, ak yon lavi nan

mennen ou pi devan ak sa ki kenbe ou tounen, epi chwazi chemen an ki
mennen nan bon konprann. “-Buddha

“Gen sèlman de erè yon moun ka fè sou wout la verite a; pa pral tout wout la, epi yo pa kòmanse. “

“Pa gen moun ki sove nou men nou menm. Pa gen moun ki kapab e pa gen yon sèl ka. Nou menm nou dwe mache sou chemen an. ”

panse yon moun nan labou, si li se ensousyan ak plen twonpe, Ki jan li
ka li mete gwo rad la jòn? Nenpòt moun ki mèt pwòp nati li, klere, vrè,
li ka mete vès jòn lan an menm tan. “
“Kòlè p’ap janm disparèt
toutotan panse resentiman yo pran swen nan lespri a.” Kòlè a pral
disparèt osito ke oblans bliye panse. ”

“Kò ou presye. Li se machin nou an pou leve. Trete li avèk swen. ”-Buddha

byento kò a ap jete, Lè sa a, ki sa li santi? Yon boutèy demode pou
bwa, li bay manti sou tè a, Lè sa a, ki sa li konnen? Pi move lènmi ou
yo pa ka fè ou mal menm jan ak pwòp panse ou, san gad. Men, yon fwa yo
metrize, pèsonn pa ka ede w menm, menm papa ou oswa manman ou. “

“Youn ta dwe fè efò pou konprann sa ki anba soufrans ak maladi - epi vize pou sante ak byennèt pandan w ap pran nan chemen an.”

sa ki pral vin nan ou, depann sou pesonn. Se sèlman moman ou rejte tout
èd ou libere. ”

“Mete kè ou sou fè byen. Fè li sou yo ak sou ankò, epi ou pral plen ak kè kontan. “-Buddha

Boudis Quotes sou espirityalite

“Sepandan anpil pawòl ki sen ou li, menm si ou pale anpil, ki bon yo pral fè ou si ou pa aji sou yo?”

“Si ou limen yon lanp pou yon moun, li pral tou eklere chemen ou.” -Buddha

“Si nou te ka wè mirak la nan yon sèl flè klèman, tout lavi nou ta chanje. ”

“Moun ki echwe pou yo travay nan direksyon verite a te manke bi pou yo viv.”

“Nan separe manti pi gwo mizè nan mond lan; nan pitye manti vre fòs nan mond lan. “

“Si ou pa jwenn yon moun pou sipòte ou sou chemen espirityèl la, mache poukont ou. Pa gen okenn konpayi ak imatur la. “

108 ציטטות הבודהא הבאות מגלמות את הדגש של המנהיג הרוחני על חמלה, שלווה ואושר.

בודהה ציטוטים על החיים

“עדיף לכבוש את עצמך מאשר לזכות באלף קרבות. אז הניצחון הוא שלך. אי אפשר לקחת ממך.” “בודהה

“אם ידעת מה אני יודע על כוחו של נותן לך לא לתת ארוחה אחת לעבור מבלי לחלוק אותו בדרך כלשהי.”

“למד את זה מן המים: קול רם את הפלג אבל עומק האוקיינוסים רגועים.”

“העבודה שלך היא לגלות את העבודה שלך ולאחר מכן עם כל הלב שלך כדי לתת לעצמך את זה.”

תאמינו דבר, לא משנה היכן אתם קוראים אותו, או מי אמר את זה, לא משנה אם
אמרתי את זה, אלא אם כן הוא מסכים עם הסיבה שלך ואת השכל הישר שלך.”

“הלשון כמו סכין חדה … הורגת בלי לצייר דם”.

“כל יצור אנושי הוא המחבר של בריאותו או מחלתו שלו.” - בודהה

“כדי להימנע משקר הוא בעצם בריא.”

“הימנע מעשים רעים כאדם שאוהב חיים נמנע מרעל”.

ציטוטים בודהה על מדיטציה

“החזקת כעס היא כמו לשתות רעל ומצפים שהאדם השני ימות”.

“מה שאתה חושב, אתה נעשה. מה אתה מרגיש, אתה מושך. מה שאתה מדמיין, אתה יוצר. “

מביאה חוכמה; חוסר מדיטציה משאיר בורות. דע היטב מה מוביל אותך קדימה
ומחזיק אותך בחזרה, ולבחור את הנתיב שמוביל חוכמה. “- בודהה

“יש רק שתי טעויות שאפשר לעשות לאורך הדרך לאמת; לא הולך כל הדרך, ולא מתחיל. “

“אף אחד לא מציל אותנו חוץ מעצמנו. אף אחד לא יכול ואף אחד לא יכול. אנחנו עצמנו חייבים ללכת בשביל “.

מחשבותיו של אדם הן בוציות, אם הוא פזיז ומלא הונאה, איך הוא יכול ללבוש

את החלוק הצהוב “.

מהרה הגוף מושלך, אז מה זה מרגיש? עץ עץ חסר תועלת, הוא שוכב על הקרקע, אז
מה הוא יודע? האויב הגרוע ביותר שלך לא יכול להזיק לך ככל המחשבות שלך,
ללא שמירה. אבל פעם אחת שולט, אף אחד לא יכול לעזור לך כל כך, אפילו לא אבא
שלך או אמא שלך. “

“יש לשאוף להבין את מה שעומד בבסיס הסבל והמחלות - ולכוון לבריאות ולרווחה תוך השגת הנתיב”.

“אם אתה שקט מספיק, אתה תשמע את זרימת היקום. אתה תרגיש את הקצב שלו. לך עם הזרם הזה. האושר טמון קדימה. המדיטציה היא המפתח “.

“יותר מאלף מילים חלולות, זו מילה אחת שמביאה שלום.” - בודהה

“אלה החופשיים ממחשבות כוזבות בוודאי מוצאים שלום”.

“חייב להיות רשע כדי שטוב יוכל להוכיח את טוהרו מעליה. “

“לכבוש את עצמך היא משימה גדולה יותר מאשר לכבוש אחרים”.

“כל סוד הקיום הוא לא לפחד. לעולם אל תחששו מה יהיה עליכם, לא תלויים באיש. רק ברגע שאתה דוחה את כל העזרה אתה משוחרר “.

“תניח את הלב שלך על לעשות טוב. תעשה את זה שוב ושוב, ואתה תהיה מלא שמחה.” - בודהה

“לכל דבר שיש לו התחלה יש סוף. לעשות את השלווה שלך עם כל זה יהיה טוב. “

“שורש הסבל הוא התקשרות”.

בודהה ציטוטים על רוחניות

“הכישלון האמיתי היחיד בחיים הוא לא להיות נכון למיטב ידיעתנו”.

“טומאה או טומאה תלויה בעצמך. אף אחד לא יכול לטהר אחר “.

“עם זאת כמה מילים קדושות אתה קורא, עם זאת רבים אתה מדבר, מה טוב הם יעשו אם אתה לא פועל על אותם?”

“אם תדליק מנורה למישהו, זה גם יבהיר את הנתיב שלך.” “בודהה

“אם היינו יכולים לראות את נס של פרח בודד, כל החיים שלנו ישתנו. “

“אלה שלא הצליחו לפעול למען האמת החמיצו את מטרת החיים”.

“בהפרדה טמון הסבל הגדול ביותר בעולם; בחמלה טמון כוחו האמיתי של העולם “.

“אם לא תמצא איש שיתמוך בך בדרך הרוחנית, לך לבד. אין ידידות עם הבוגר “.

“עבד את הישועה שלך. אל תלויים באחרים “.

עם זאת הרבה מילים קדושות אתה קורא, עם זאת רבים אתה מדבר, מה טוב הם יעשו אם אתה לא

10 Best Uses Of Classical Music In Classic Cartoons
I grew up watching Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, and Popeye cartoons,
because they were regularly shown on the independent stations here in
St. Louis. (Disney cartoons weren’t readily available unless the Sunday
night Wonderful World of Disney show featured one of them.) Those
cartoons helped develop my love of classical music. (Sorry, Mom. You
were a huge musical influence, but not quite as much as Bugs Bunny!)
While the vast majority of the cartoons of the 1930s-1950s made
excellent use of popular music and original compositions, they also used
classical music to great effect, creating some of the finest animated
masterpieces of all time.

Rossini’s overtures were popular with
cartoonists, as were Liszt’s Hungarian rhapsodies and Brahms’ Hungarian
dances. In cartoon-land, Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata became synonymous
with quiet, moonlit scenes, while the opening notes to his Fifth
Symphony were used to introduce Nazis during World War II. The final
movement of Liszt’s Les Preludes frequently introduced some cartoons.
Any favorites you’d add to this list? Enjoy!
The Band Concert


Music: Rossini’s William Tell Overture

Made before the William Tell Overture became identified as The Lone
Ranger’s theme, The Band Concert features bandleader Mickey leading an
outdoor performance. While the band plows through the overture, Donald
Duck continually interrupts by playing “Turkey in the Straw” on his


Pigs in a Polka


Music: Brahms’ Hungarian Dances #5, 7, 6 and 17 (they appear in that order)

The familiar story of the three little pigs was a popular vehicle for
cartoonists. This Warner Bros. version cleverly syncs the action with
Brahms’ music, so much so that the music seems like a fifth character.


Baton Bunny


Music: Von Suppe’s A Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna

Bugs is the conductor of a musician-less orchestra. He performs Von
Suppe’s “Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna,” but with a twist: He turns
part of it into a cowboys and Indians saga, using his ears as props.


Magical Maestro


Music: Largo al factotum aria from Rossini’s Barber of Seville opera

This famous aria was never showcased better in a cartoon than in this
Tex Avery romp (although Long-Haired Hare comes close). After a two-bit
magician fails to convince Poochini, the “world’s greatest baritone,” to
let him into the opera singer’s act, the magician uses his wand to make
life quite difficult for Poochini. It’s one of Avery’s absolute best.
It’s often cut these days because of some unfortunate racial
stereotypes, but you can still find the uncut original. Note: Watch for
the fantastic bit where Poochini “breaks the fourth wall” and plucks a
hair from the “film.”


Tom and Jerry in the Hollywood Bowl


Music: Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus

Tom is the conductor of an orchestra of cats. Naturally, Jerry wants in
on the act, and of course, Tom repeatedly shoes him away. Excellent
choreography in this one. And both Tom and Jerry look pretty sharp in
those tuxes.


A Corny Concerto


Music: Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto #1, Strauss’ Tales from the Vienna Woods and The Blue Danube

Warner Bros. frequently poked fun at Disney, especially considering
many animators migrated from Disney to Warner Bros. (and MGM). A Corny
Concerto rips on Disney’s Fantasia (see #2), starting with Elmer
appearing as an unshaven Stokowski introducing the two segments. The
first segment is a wild romp in the Vienna woods with Bugs, Porky and an
unnamed dog. The second is more standard fare of a duck protecting a
family of swans from a vulture.


The Cat Concerto


Music: Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody #2

The Cat Concerto won the Academy Award for Short Subjects-Cartoons in
1946. Warner Bros. released a nearly identical cartoon the same year,
Rhapsody Rabbit, which had many of the same gags. Both MGM and Warner
Bros. accused the other of plagiarism, but nothing official came of it.
It’s a toss-up as to whether The Cat Concerto or Rhapsody Rabbit is the
better cartoon. Also watch Rhapsody in Rivets, an Oscar-nominated Warner
Bros. cartoon that features the construction of the “Umpire State
Building” while the foreman/conductor leaders the show.


The Rabbit of Seville


Music: Rossini’s Barber of Seville Overture

Bugs does Rossini in a beautifully timed and written masterpiece. Elmer
chases Bugs into a theater. Bugs and an unwilling Elmer act out
Rossini’s “Barber of Seville,” with Bugs giving Elmer a full head
manicure. Best part: Bugs uses his ears to massage Elmer’s bald head.
Some of the lyrics: “Hey you! Don’t look so perplexed/why must you be
vexed/can’t you see you’re next? Yes, you’re next. You’re so next!” and
this one: “There! You’re nice and clean! Although your face looks like
it might have gone through a machine.” (Note: The music here is from the
overture, while the music from #7 is from the famous aria of the
opera.) The film quality is not good but this is the only English
language version I could find on youtube.


The Sorcerer’s Apprentice


Music: Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Fantasia is one of Disney’s greatest films. It’s a safe bet to say that
more people saw the segments of Fantasia as one-off cartoons on TV than
actually saw the movie in the theater. The best part (and probably
best-known) is the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, with Mickey as the apprentice
who literally gets in over his head. The rest of the music featured in
Fantasia was: Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Tchaikovsky’s
Nutcracker Suite, Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, Beethoven’s Sixth
Symphony, Ponchielli’s The Dance of the Hours, Mussorgsky’s Night on
Bald Mountain, and Schubert’s Ave Maria.


What’s Opera, Doc?

[dailymotion id=xelqe]

Music: Wagner’s Ring Cycle

Bugs and Elmer Fudd do Wagner in this Chuck Jones masterpiece. Some may
have put Fantasia first, but this Bugs Bunny short is consistently
ranked as the best Bugs Bunny cartoon of all time, and usually the best
of all cartoon shorts. Jones reduces Wagner’s whole Ring saga to 6½
minutes in a hilarious parody — and it’s one of the only times Elmer
actually “gets” Bugs. You’ll never listen to “Flight of the Valkyries”
