    Mining for Wisdom within Delusion

    Maitreya's Distinction between Phenomena and the Nature of Phenomena and Its Indian and Tibetan Commentaries

    • by
    • Karl Brunnholzl
    Maitreya’s Distinction between Phenomena and the Nature of Phenomena distinguishes the illusory phenomenal world of saṃsāra produced by the confused dualistic mind from the ultimate reality that is mind’s true nature. The transition from the one to the other is the process of “mining for wisdom within delusion.” Maitreya’s text calls this “the fundamental change,” which refers to the vanishing of delusive appearances through practicing the path, thus revealing… Read More

    Don't Believe Everything You Think

    Living with Wisdom and Compassion

    • by
    • Thubten Chodron
    It can be hard for those of us living in the twenty-first century to see how fourteenth-century Buddhist teachings still apply. When you’re trying to figure out which cell phone plan to buy or brooding about something someone wrote about you on Facebook, lines like “While the enemy of your own anger is unsubdued, though you conquer external foes, they will only increase” can seem a little obscure.

    Living Life Fully

    Finding Sanity and Goodness in the Unpredictable

    • by
    • Bill Karelis
    We are all imprisoned by the projections of our minds, and we all have the power to free ourselves. To gain this freedom, we must do three things: know that we are imprisoned, investigate how we entrap ourselves, and discover how to overcome our habitual patterns. The discipline of the sitting practice of meditation can lead us through such a process. Meditation doesn’t have to be heavy or ambitious.… Read More

    A Retreat with Pema Chodron on Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change

    • by
    • Pema Chodron

Because, Pema Chödrön teaches, that kind of fear-based clinging leads only to even greater suffering. In this recorded retreat, based on the program Living Beautifully with Uncertainty… Read More
