    The Vow-Powered Life

    A Simple Method for Living with Purpose

    • by
    • Jan Chozen Bays
    Making a vow is a powerful mindfulness practice—and all you have to do to tap into that power is set your intention consciously. A vow can be as “small” as the aspiration to smile at someone at least once every day, or as “big” as marriage; as personal as deciding to be mindful when picking up the phone or as universal as vowing to save all sentient beings. It can… Read More

    Fear and Fearlessness as a Direct Path of Awakening

    • by
    • Gaylon Ferguson
    Fear is something that's such a part of our lives that it doesn't seem it would be possible to live without it. This book disputes that claim in a powerful way. Gaylon Ferguson presents traditional Buddhist teachings to show that the fear that so often wreaks havoc on us is in fact quite insubstantial—and it's mostly something we create ourselves. If we can learn to see that, it becomes pretty… Read More

    When the Buddha Was an Elephant

    32 Animal Wisdom Tales from the Jataka

    • by
    • Mark W. McGinnis
    Around the beginning of the common era, Indian Buddhists began to collect fables, or Jataka tales, illuminating various human virtues and foibles—from kindness, cooperation, loyalty, and self-discipline on the one hand to greed, pride, foolishness, and treachery on the other. Animals, instead of people, took the leading roles, giving the tales a universal appeal. Tales of this kind have emerged all over the world—in the Mediterranean as Aesop's fables… Read More

    Living Beautifully

    with Uncertainty and Change

    • by
    • Pema Chodron
    We live in difficult times. Life sometimes seems like a turbulent river threatening to drown us and destroy the world. Why, then, shouldn’t we cling to the certainty of the shore—to our familiar patterns and habits? Because, Pema Chödrön teaches, that kind of fear-based clinging keeps us from the infinitely more satisfying experience of being fully alive. The teachings she presents here—known as the “Three Commitments”—provide a wealth of wisdom… Read More

  10. Right Concentration

    Right Concentration

    A Practical Guide to the Jhanas

    • by
    • Leigh Brasington
    One of the elements of the Eightfold Path the Buddha taught is Right Concentration: the one-pointedness of mind that, together with ethics, livelihood, meditation, and so forth, leads to the ultimate freedom from suffering. The Jhanas are the method the Buddha himself taught for achieving Right Concentration. They are a series of eight successive states, beginning with bliss and moving on toward radically nonconceptual states. The fact that they can… Read More
