God Tweets

God Tweets1The other day i received this book from the author Sadasiva Saccidananda. It is a collection of 130 short texts written for twitter.  They are humorous, insightful and more or less elegant. Here is a couple of examples:

No one expects presents from Santa Claus after knowing. No enlightened being expects anything again in maya-world.

They say “when sex is good, there are no thoughts”. And I say “when life is good, there are no thoughts”. This is fullness.

A Heart Released

Posted on | August 2, 2016 | No Comments

A Heart Released free PDF e-bookA Heart Released is a record of passages from the thai monk Phra Ajaan Mun Bhuridatta Thera sermons, made during the years 1944-45 by two monks who were staying under his guidance, and edited by a third monk, an ecclesiastical official who frequently visited him for instruction in meditation. The unusual style of Phra Ajaan Mun’s sermons may be explained in part by the fact that in the days before his ordination he was skilled in a popular form of informal village entertainment called maw lam. Maw lam is a contest in extemporaneous rhyming, usually reproducing the war between the sexes, in which the battle of wits can become quite fierce.

Gifts He Left Behind

Posted on | July 8, 2016 | No Comments

Gifts He Left BehindGifts he left behind is the legacy of the thai monk Ajaan Dune Atulo. He was born on October 4, 1888. At the age of 22 he ordained in the provincial capital. Six years later, disillusioned with his life as an uneducated town monk, he left to study in Ubon Ratchathani. He abandoned his studies and took up the wandering meditation life. After wandering for 19 years through the forests and mountains of Thailand and Cambodia, Ajaan Dune received an order from his ecclesiastical superiors to head a combined study and practice monastery in Surin. It was thus that he took over the abbotship of Wat Burapha, in the middle of the town, in 1934. There he remained until his death in 1983.

Noble & True – a collection of essays

Posted on | June 16, 2016 | 1 Comment

Noble and TrueNoble & True is a collection of essays from the Metta Forrest Monastery.  A main theme is impermanence and how Buddhist are dealing with it. It’s an often-overlooked feature of the Buddha’s teachings that he identified the basis for all our good and skillful qualities as heedfulness—not innate goodness or compassion: heedfulness. To recognize that there are dangers both within and without, that your actions can make the difference between suffering from those dangers and not, and that you’d better get your act together now: This is the heedfulness that makes us generous, wise, and kind. We’re kind not because we’re innately kind. In fact, our minds are so quick to change that they’re not innately anything, good or bad, aside from being aware.

Easy Journey to other Planets

Posted on | May 11, 2016 | No Comments

Easy Journey to other PlanetsEasy Journey to other Planets is quite amusing and at the same time rather sad. It intends to document the power of Bhakti Yoga, but the entire basis is an unsubstantiated criticism of modern science. The publisher, the Hare Krishna Movement, still insists that NASA’s moon landing was a fake and that mans inspiration to travel to other worlds can only be attained by the practice of Bhakti yoga. Srila Prabhupada originally wrote Easy Journey to Other Planets in the 1960’s at the height of the Apollo space program and the book is dedicated to “Scientists of the World”. Srila Prabhupada also incorporates the, at that time, newly discovered science of antimatter and he chats away about how nothing of this is new, everything has been discovered in ancient time if you read the Bhagavad Gita the right way.

From Buddha-to-be to Teacher in the Buddha’s own Words

Posted on | May 5, 2016 | No Comments

From Buddha-to-be to TeacherFrom Buddha-to-be to Teacher in the Buddha’s own Words documents the earliest teachings of the Buddha. Even before his enlightenment the Buddha was teaching and much of these early lectures have not been documented thoroughly in later biographies. Maybe because the post-enlightenment teachings have been emphasized. But Buddha himself would often in his encounters with others refer to his own practice before his Awakening, and his life shortly thereafter. This free PDF e-book presents the early material in a way that will help students familiarize themselves with these episodes from the Buddha’s life and learn how the Buddha himself viewed his practice and his decision to teach. It is not the whole story, and it is not meant to be, but it does present a more or less continuous narrative, and a single voice, and that has certain advantages.
