Vipassana is an ancient meditation technique of India. The Buddha discovered it, attained full enlightenment using it and made it the essence of this teaching, which spread throughout the Indian subcontinent and then on to neighboring countries. For five hundreds years Vipassana flourished in India but then eventually it became polluted and was lost there. However, in Burma (now Myanmar) a chain of devoted teachers maintained the theory and the practice of the technique from over the centuries. This books give both an introduction to the meditation technique, practical guidance and it contains essays on how the practises are implemented in different walks of modern life.

Handful of Leaves VOL I and II http://www.holybooks.com/handful-of-leaves/ http://www.holybooks.com/handful-of-leaves/#comments Wed, 15 Oct 2014 02:33:34 +0000 http://www.holybooks.com/?p=6012 Handful of leaves Handful of Leaves an anthology from the Digha Nikaya of the Pali Canon is translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (Geoffrey DeGraff). The suttas selected and translated here for these volumes were chosen for the interest they might hold for a person intent on understanding and practicing the Buddhist teachings, or Dhamma. Some have been chosen for their detailed discussions of basic doctrines; others, for the vivid stories or similes they use to illustrate those doctrines. Although they constitute only a small portion of the Sutta Pitaka, taken together they present a fairly comprehensive picture of the Pitaka’s essential teachings. Unfortunately only volume I and III are available at the moment, please let me know if you have information about volume II and IV.
