Countering Stress and Depression
30/01/2013 11:45 (GMT+7)
A great Tibetan teacher of mind training once remarked that one of the mind’s most marvellous qualities is that it can be transformed. I have no doubt that those who attempt to transform their minds, overcome their disturbing emotions and achieve a sense of inner peace, will, over a period of time, notice a change in their mental attitudes and responses to people and events. Their minds will become more disciplined and positive. And I am sure they will find their own sense of happiness grow as they contribute to the greater happiness of others.

The Awakening

Buffeted by the whims of larger, more powerful nations and isolated from the international community, Laos, at least until only a few years ago, remained more rumour than reality. Its capital, Vientiane, an anomaly on the world map. With the completion in 1994 of the Australian-funded Mittaphab, or 'Friendship bridge', connecting Vientiane with neighbouring Thailand, and the increasing economic interest in the development of the lower Mekong basin, Vientiane's days of charming obscurity could well be numbered.

Despite Buddhism's growing presence in the West, most Americans still badly misunderstand this ancient world religion. The leaders of Philadelphia's Thai community were rudely reminded of this unpleasant fact during the 1980s when they set out to buy land for a Buddhist temple and monastery not far from the City of Brotherly Love. After searching nearly a year, the Thais were delighted to find a lovely 10-acre site overlooking a lake in southeastern Pennsylvania's Chester County. All that was needed was the local zoning board's permission to use the site for religious purposes.

Some Impressions Of The Buddha: Dreiser And Sir Edwin Arnold's The Light Of Asia
15/06/2012 04:44 (GMT+7)
Since the early nineteenth century, a small but influential minority of American writers and intellectuals has responded with varying degrees of intensity to the religious and philosophical traditions of Asia. One of these authors is Theordore Dreiser. His literary use of Hindu teachings in The Stoic (1947) is well known and has been evaluated by a number of critics.[1] The strong interest in Buddhism expressed in his non-fiction, on the other hand, has largely escaped attention.

The Practice Of Buddhist Economics? Another View
20/04/2012 06:38 (GMT+7)
The guidance provided by Buddhism about forms of economy is examined, focusing on individual and social aspects of Buddhist practice, rather than a literal readings of the canonical texts. The case of the village-level development organization in Sri Lanka, Sarvodaya Shramadana, illustrates issues concerning Buddhist approaches to organization at the micro level. The impact of the Buddhist institution of the laity supporting monks on economic growth is considered, and the role of material welfare in a Buddhist conception of development. This examination of Buddhism suggests that its practice reveals insights into approaches to economy.


Suggestions Regarding Compiling an Abridged Common Buddhist Canon

An issue confronting Buddhism in the modern world is how to promote its scriptures as a foundation for a correct understanding of the Dharma as well as a means of promoting the Dharma among its own followers and among interested people in general. The volume as well as the diversity of the texts found in the three major collections of scriptures in Pali, Chinese and Tibetan makes the very idea of dissemination widely the Tripitaka in toto quite untenable.
The Pearl of the Tripitaka, Two Vaggas in the Sutta- Nipāta
30/09/2011 01:35 (GMT+7)
From the deafening silence that the Buddha experienced during the moonlit moment beneath the Bodhi tree, flowed the teaching of the Dharma. 2,500 years has since passed, and the accumulations of the Teachings into various versions of the Tripitaka have swelled into monstrous proportions. Numerous schools, countless interpretations and explanations of the teachings have been done. Buddhism and its literature have come a long way, and maybe some of its original luster has been lost among the clusters of information. Therefore, it ignites sparkles when one read suttas that are flowered with ancient simplicity and waltzed with the thunder of non-duality. The earliest chapters of the Sutta Nipāta do have such quality and, according to the erudite Professor Luis o. Gomez, "The significance of these passages cannot be exaggerated."[1]

About fifteen years ago there was an Associated Press article with a dateline from a northern Japanese fishing village. Several people from a fishing vessel were washed overboard in a storm far at sea. One of the women was found still alive on a beach near her village three days later. At the time a giant sea turtle was briefly seen swimming just offshore.
