The book also introduces a new and fascinating model of how the mind works, and uses illustrations and charts to help the reader work through each stage.

Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha

Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha
  • Author : Daniel M. Ingram
  • Publisher : Red Wheel/Weiser
  • Release : 2018-06-06
  • ISBN : 1911597108
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The very idea that Buddhist teachings can be mastered will arouse controversy within Buddhist circles. Even so, Daniel Ingram insists that enlightenment is an attainable goal, once our fanciful notions of it are stripped away, and we have learned to use meditation as a method for examining reality rather than an opportunity to wallow in self-absorbed mind-noise. This book sets out concisely the difference between concentration-based (sometimes referred to as Zen) and insight (Vipassana) meditation. The author provides example practices and, most importantly, he presents detailed maps of the states of mind we are likely to encounter and the stages we must negotiate as we move through clearly defined cycles of insight.

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

Now ordinary meditators (and non-meditators) can understand how to attain non-ordinary states with relative ease. Blended with contemporary examples, pragmatic exercises, and ''how to'' instructions that anyone can try, Focused and Fearless provides a wealth of tools to cultivate non-distracted attention in daily life and on retreat. Shaila Catherine has a friendly, wise approach to the meditative states (jhanas) that lead to liberating insight. Focused and Fearless is about much more than merely meditation or concentration. It offers a complete path towards bliss, fearlessness, and true awakening.
