Wisdom Is Bliss: Four Friendly Fun Facts That Can Change Your Life Audiobook

Wisdom Is Bliss: Four Friendly Fun Facts That Can Change Your Life

Author: Robert Thurman Narrator: Robert Thurman Release Date: August 2021

'Robert Thurman is a living treasure, one of today's most provocative spiritual thinkers.' - Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence Robert Thurman, the preeminent scholar and interpreter of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy for the modern world, leads us on a joyful exploration into the nature of reality through Buddha's threefold curriculum of 'super-education.' 'Buddha had to be an educator, rather than a prophet or religion founder, since he had achieved his goal of exact and complete understanding of reality by using reason, experiments to open his own mind, and vision to do so,' Thurman writes. 'From his own experience, he could help [others] as a teacher by streamlining the process. He could not just transplant his realization into their minds. They could not get their own realizations just by believing whatever he said. He could only provide them with a prospect of full realization along a path of learning and experiencing they could follow-they would have to travel on their own.' This book is your invitation to travel that same road. Deeply felt and bracingly direct, it doesn't teach about the teaching-it is the teaching. Get ready to get real, and have fun along the way, as you chart a path to reliable, lasting happiness. This audio product contains a PDF with supporting material, and the PDF is available to download.

En ella conoceremos el aspecto mágico de Japón, sus leyendas más arraigadas y sus dioses de la naturaleza. Una imprescindible colección de cuentos que encierran enseñanzas zen. - Richard Gordon Smith (1858-1918) fue un naturalista inglés que recorrió el Lejano Oriente huyendo de un matrimonio insufrible. A lo largo de su prolongado periplo viajero se dedicó a recopilar y catalogar muestras de animales y plantas para enviar al Museo Británico al tiempo que escribía una serie de diarios recogiendo observaciones e impresiones de sus viajes. Llegó a Japón en 1897 y quedó fascinado por la riqueza y el exotismo de su folclore. Tres años después tuvo que volver a Inglaterra pero cayó gravemente enfermo en Fiyi y se vio obligado a regresar a Japón.

Tras su muerte, el gobierno japonés le concedió la Orden del Sol Naciente de Cuarto Grado por su labor como divulgador de la cultura japonesa.

The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way: Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika Audiobook

The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way: Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika

Author: N?g?rjuna Narrator: Zehra Jane Naqvi Release Date: July 2021

The Buddhist saint Nāgārjuna, who lived in South India in approximately the second century CE, is undoubtedly the most important, influential, and widely studied Mahāyāna Buddhist philosopher. His greatest philosophical work, the Mūlamadhyamikakārikā-read and studied by philosophers in all major Buddhist schools of Tibet, China, Japan, and Korea-is one of the most influential works in the history of Indian philosophy. Now, in The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way, Jay L. Garfield provides a clear translation of Nāgārjuna's seminal work, offering those with little or no prior knowledge of Buddhist philosophy a view into the profound logic of the Mūlamadhyamikakārikā. Garfield presents a superb translation of the Tibetan text of Mūlamadhyamikakārikā in its entirety, and a commentary reflecting the Tibetan tradition through which Nāgārjuna's philosophical influence has largely been transmitted. Illuminating the systematic character of Nāgārjuna's reasoning, Garfield shows how Nāgārjuna develops his doctrine that all phenomena are empty of inherent existence, that is, than nothing exists substantially or independently. He offers a verse-by-verse commentary that explains Nāgārjuna's positions and arguments in the language of Western metaphysics and epistemology, and connects Nāgārjuna's concerns to those of Western philosophers.

The Buddha's Guide to Gratitude: The Life-Changing Power of Every Day Mindfulness

Author: Becca Anderson, His Holiness The Dalai Lama Narrator: Allyson Voller Release Date: July 2021

How to shift the “focus on what is right in our lives instead of what is missing . . . This audiobook is a guide to increasing your happiness quotient” (Nina Lesowitz, author of Living Life as a Thank You). As it turns out, Buddha had quite a lot to say on the subject of gratitude, including citing it as one of the four keys to the Gate of Heaven. Studies show?and experts counsel?that gratitude is a key component of our happiness. People who are grateful about events and experiences from the past, who celebrate triumphs instead of focusing on losses or disappointments, tend to be more satisfied. Gratitude can help us transform our fears into courage, our anger into forgiveness, our isolation into belonging, and another’s pain into healing. Even in the midst of over-busyness, stress, and chaos, we can find plenty to be glad about, and this audiobook will start your journey towards Zen and gratefulness. The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude provides you with positive thinking “power tools” that will help you build a more grateful life, including: - Mindful meditations - Hands-on exercises - Profound practices - Inspiring quotations - Space for notetaking and journaling - Thought-provoking questions

Be the Refuge: Raising the Voices of Asian American Buddhists Audiobook

Be the Refuge: Raising the Voices of Asian American Buddhists

Author: Chenxing Han Narrator: Jennifer Aquino Release Date: June 2021

A must-read for modern sanghas--Asian American Buddhists in their own words, on their own terms. Despite the fact that two thirds of U.S. Buddhists identify as Asian American, mainstream perceptions about what it means to be Buddhist in America often whitewash and invisibilize the diverse, inclusive, and intersectional communities that lie at the heart of American Buddhism. Be the Refuge is both critique and celebration, calling out the erasure of Asian American Buddhists while uplifting the complexity and nuance of their authentic stories and vital, thriving communities. Drawn from in-depth interviews with a pan-ethnic, pan-Buddhist group, Be the Refuge is the first book to center young Asian American Buddhists' own voices. With insights from multi-generational, second-generation, convert, and socially engaged Asian American Buddhists, Be the Refuge includes the stories of trailblazers, bridge-builders, integrators, and refuge-makers who hail from a wide range of cultural and religious backgrounds. Championing nuanced representation over stale stereotypes, Han and the 89 interviewees in Be the Refuge push back against false narratives like the Oriental monk, the superstitious immigrant, and the banana Buddhist--typecasting that collapses the multivocality of Asian American Buddhists into tired, essentialized tropes. Encouraging frank conversations about race, representation, and inclusivity among Buddhists of all backgrounds, Be the Refuge embodies the spirit of interconnection that glows at the heart of American Buddhism.
