Path_of_Freedom_Vimuttimagga.pdfThe Path of Freedom / Vimuttimagga 1647 viewsThe work is compiled in accordance with classical Buddhist division of the path into the three stages of virtue, concentration, and wisdom, culminating in the goal of liberation. It is widely believed that the Vimuttimagga may have been the model used by Buddhaghosha to compose his magnum opus, the Visuddhimagga (Path of Purification), several centuries later. The older work is marked by a leaner style and a more lively sense of urgency stemming from its primarily practical orientation.Nov 15, 2013
Mindfulness_Breathing.pdfMindfulness of Breathing2861 viewsThis is a useful anthology of important and pragmatic source material from the Pali Canon and Commentaries on the technique of Anapana, or breath-awareness meditation. It includes the Discourse on Respiration-Mindfulness from the Majjhima Nikaya, commentary from the Vishuddhimagga (Path of Purification), and analyses of other passages and Suttas.Nov 15, 2013
Buddha_in_his_words.pdfThe Buddha’s Teaching In His Own Words 1403 viewsThe present Wheel booklet contains Chapter 12 of Bhikkhu Nanmoli’s classic compilation, The Life of the Buddha according to the Pali Canon. The purpose of that book, now in print for 27 years, had been to construct a biography of the Buddha by piecing together all the relevant material scattered throughout the Vinaya and the Sutta Pitakas. Since the Buddha’s life was in many respects inseparable from his teaching, Ven. Nanamoli had included, in the middle of the book, an anthology of texts dealing with the teaching, which he entitled “The Doctrine”.Nov 15, 2013
Begin_Pali_Suttas.pdfBeginnings: The Pali Suttas1453 viewsExcept where otherwise noted, all factual information in this essay is garnered from the Pāḷi Suttas and their companion-piece, the Vinaya. In these texts we find accounts of the first months following the Buddha’s awakening (Khandhaka I, Mahāvagga, Vinaya), of the final months before his decease (Sutta 16, Dīgha Nikāya), of the events leading up to the First and Second Councils, together with an account of those Councils (Khandhakas XI and XIi, Cullavagga, Vinaya), and, scattered through the texts, incidental information and clues about the middle period of the Buddha’s ministry. Considerable additional information is available in texts of later date, such as the Classical Commentaries. Nov 15, 2013
The_Anapanasati_Sutta_2.pdfThe Anapanasati Sutta3174 viewsA Practical Guide to Mindfulness of Breathing and Tranquil Wisdom Meditation. This is a meditation instruction book, written by an American monk who currently runs the Dhamma Sukha Meditation Center in Missouri. While the subject material is nothing new, the Venerable. offers a different (and somewhat controversial) point of view on the practicing of the Tranquil Wisdom meditation that is well worth the read.
