Theravadin / Insight

The Theravada is the oldest school of Buddhism in existence, now prominent throughout Southeast Asia today. Its modern masters are the dharma ancestors of many of today’s principal teachers of Insight Meditation, which represents a modern, Western continuation of that ancient tradition.

    A Guide to Cultivating Mindfulness in Everyday Life

    • by
    • Sayadaw U Tejaniya
    The flame of wisdom can be kindled in the midst of any life, even one that might seem too full of personal and professional commitments to allow for it. Such is the teaching of Sayadaw U Tejaniya, who himself learned to cultivate awareness in the raucous years he spent in the Burmese textile business before taking his final monastic ordination at the age of thirty-six.

    Right Concentration

    A Practical Guide to the Jhanas

    • by
    • Leigh Brasington
    The jhānas are eight progressive altered states of consciousness that can be identified with the aspect of the Buddha’s Eightfold Path called Right Concentration.

    Thoughts Are Not the Enemy

    An Innovative Approach to Meditation Practice

    • by
    • Jason Siff
    In most forms of meditation, the meditator is instructed to let go of thoughts as they arise. As a result, thinking is often taken, unnecessarily, to be something misguided or evil.

    Teachings from Women Who Are Shaping Buddhism in the West

    • edited by
    • Andrea Miller,
    • Editors of the Shambhala Sun
    Buddhism began to take root in the West at just the same time that women’s voices were arising to find expression here—after millennia of being relegated to the background. If that was a coincidence, it was an auspicious one, for the women who emerged as Buddhist teachers have been among the most articulate of Dharma-communicators—and they remain an indelible feature of Western Buddhism as the practice matures here. The… Read More

    Three Steps to Awakening

    A Practice for Bringing Mindfulness to Life

    • by
    • Larry Rosenberg,
    • Laura Zimmerman
    The deceptively simple three-phase method presented here is a meditation practice that can be worked with for a lifetime. Larry Rosenberg looks to Zen, to Insight Meditation, and to the teachings of J. Krishnamurti to find three kinds of meditation that anyone can do and that complement each other in a wonderful way: (1) breath awareness, (2) breath as anchor, and (3) choiceless awareness. … Read More
