  • Sale! A Concise History of Buddhism

    A Concise History of Buddhism

    The phenomenon known as “Buddhism” embraces an uninterrupted process of communication through which the Buddha’s followers have been guided and inspired for 25 centuries. Communication is a living, evolving thing, and for all its continuity the Buddhist tradition presents the modern student – and practitioner – with a bewildering array of cultural, philosophical and practical forms. This work describes and correlates these diverse manifestations – in Buddhism’s homeland of India, and in its spread across Asia, from Mongolia to Sri Lanka and from Japan to the Middle East. Drawing on recent historical and literary research, the author explains the basic concepts of Buddhism from all periods of its development, and places them in an historical framework.

    Ritual and Devotion-Sangharakshita

    Imagine a world without beauty, myth, celebration or ritual. It seems that to feel fully and vibrantly alive, these experiences are essential to us–helping us to feel in touch with all levels of our being by engaging our emotions, senses and imagination. Devotional ritual also speaks this language of the heart and can bring us closer to our highest ideals, but it can be a confronting aspect of Buddhism for some people in the West. However, for the Buddha’s teachings to have a real impact on our lives we need to have a deep feeling for the Buddha’s teaching, a clear understanding is not usually enough. Skilfully steering us through the difficulties we may encounter, Sangharakshita leads us through the sevenfold puja, a poetic sequence of devotional moods found in Tibetan and Indian forms of Buddhism. Within this he discusses the use of chanting, offerings, recitation and other activities in creating ritual space and moods. Engaging in this way can help us commit ourselves to the spiritual journey with all our heart.

    The Buddhist Vision-Subhuti

    Are you interested in the Buddhist path, but baffled by the technicalities of Buddhist terminology? Then The Buddhist Vision is for you! The author clearly explains the concept of the Wheel of Life, the Mandala of the Five Buddhas, and how you can overcome mundane reality by ascending the spiral to the transcendental path of self-liberation. If you can accept two premises: * That consciousness survives after death, and * That the world is the counterpart of consciousness. then the ideas presented here will help you better understand the world of human experience. Most people have some perspective on existence, and if your views feel like a jumble of assumptions, prejudices or opinion, this book will help you find the reality underneath the habits that have been ingrained in you. Here you will learn that Buddhism is a practical teaching of great significance to the modern world, for it is a living tradition.
