Self, Anatta and Consciousness. Living By the Canon: The Music of the Mind. In the Pali canon, the story is told of a king who hears a sound he has never heard before, and finds that sound to be “tantalizing, lovely, intoxicating, entrancing, and enthralling.”

He asks about it and is told it is the sound of a lute. He then asks that this lute be brought to him so he can see what sort of thing it is. The lute is delivered to the king, who examines it with great interest. Karma. Schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Pali. Buddhism and Evolution. Buddhism and Science. Dependent Origination. Zen.

Das zentrale Motiv hinter Nāgārjunas Lehrtätigkeit, die den Grundstein für die „Schule des Mittleren Weges“ (Mādhyamaka) legte und der buddhistischen Philosophie zahlreiche Werke hinterließ, war die Wiederherstellung der Lehre Buddhas, deren Kerngedanke Nāgārjuna zufolge durch die ausufernde Schullehre in einigen Schulen des Hīnayāna Gefahr lief, aus dem Blickpunkt zu geraten. Nāgārjuna machte zur Unterstützung seiner Vorgehensweise systematisch Gebrauch von einem besonderen Argumentationswerkzeug, dem „Urteilsvierkant“ (Sanskrit catuṣkoṭi), mithilfe dessen er logische Widersprüche in den Postulaten seines philosophischen Umfeldes aufzuzeigen und zu dekonstruieren versuchte.

Buddhism For Non-Believers

I have yet to be very productive during my post-graduation time. I watch as my friends get bonuses at their jobs, read their tweets about how difficult grad school is, and be astonished that I don’t know one but multiple peers working for Teach For America. Yes, I did get to fulfill my stereotypical wanderlust moment by traveling through SE Asia for six weeks. Yes, I did get some form of an internship for a while. And yes, I did move to New York. During those dark times I turn to a rather unlikely figure since I lack any sense of spirituality: Alan Watts.

And so I give you this: Five Inspirations For Life By Alan Watts “Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.” You navigate through the world by defining everything in your life and those definitions spur action. “Just as the wake doesn’t move the ship, the past does not move the present.” I get stuck in my past quite often. Dharma. Buddhism. What is Vipassana Meditation. The technique of Vipassana is a simple, practical way to achieve real peace of mind and to lead a happy, useful life.

What is Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana means "to see things as they really are"; it is a logical process of mental purification through self-observation. From time to time, we all experience agitation, frustration and disharmony. When we suffer, we do not keep our misery limited to ourselves; instead, we keep distributing it to others. Certainly this is not a proper way to live. We all want to live at peace within ourselves, and with those around us. Vipassana enables us to experience peace and harmony: it purifies the mind, freeing it from suffering and the deep-seated causes of suffering. Historical Background Vipassana is one of ’s most ancient meditation techniques. Five centuries after the Buddha, the noble heritage of Vipassana had disappeared from . In our time, Vipassana has been reintroduced to , as well as to citizens from more than eighty other countries, by S.N. S.N. The Practice. Buddhism. Texte ← Engagierter Buddhismus.
