The sixteen sutras in this book are English translations of texts selected from the Chinese Buddhist Canon. Thirteen of them have never before been published in book form. The translator’s introduction to Buddhist doctrine provides an organized background for readers at all levels to better understand and appreciate the teachings in these sutras, which cover a wide range of interesting topics. For example, in Sutra 1, the Buddha teaches karmic requitals and how one can avoid or mitigate unfortunate requitals. In Sutra 6, He predicts that long after His Dharma has perished, the next Buddha, Maitreya, will bring the Dharma back to this world. In Sutra 13, the Buddha reveals the mystery of consciousness, giving a detailed description of one’s rebirth according to karmic force. In Sutra 14, He declares the eternity of nirvana and one’s Buddha nature. In Sutra 16, He affirms that one’s great compassion for all sentient beings will quickly lead one to Buddhahood. These English translations are easy to read, and Buddhist terms are explained in the glossary. One can read this book for pleasure, or study it for spiritual development. One can also recite the sutras, prayers, and mantras as a spiritual practice. Students in Buddhist Studies certainly can use this book to support and enhance their learning.

The Tachikawa Ryu is a legendary secret Buddhist sect that taught: "The highest spiritual attainments are best achieved through the physical act of sex.” The sect was banished in Japan and went underground hundreds of years ago, but many believe that it is still active. Scholar John Stevens provides-based on actual events, hidden texts, and authentic Tantric tradition--the first explication in English of Tachikawa Ryu teachings, in the form of a symbolic narrative about the young Shingon monk Dai-en and the Zen practitioner Lady Hotoke. What emerges is a fascinating portrait of a little-known aspect of esoteric Buddhism and startling insights into the sexual nature of the rituals of conventional worship as well as the training of Tachikawa Ryu priests and priestesses. This groundbreaking work includes black-and-white photographs of rare artwork and statuary that express the Tachikawa ideal.

* Author posits that enlightenment is an attainable goal * Argues that meditation is a method for examining reality The very idea that the teachings of meditation can be mastered will arouse controversy within Buddhist circles. Even so, 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 mindnoise". Ingram sets out concisely the difference between concentration-based and insight (vipassana) meditation; he 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. It's easy to feel overawed, at first, by Ingram's assurance and ease in the higher levels of consciousness, but consistently he writes as a down-to-earth and compassionate guide--to the practitioner willing to commit themselves this is a glittering gift of a book.

Tales and Teachings of the Buddha - now carefully pruned, corrected and revised - builds on the ground-breaking work done by Gombrich, Spiro and Tambiah in their field studies of lay Buddhism in Sri Lanka, Burma and Thailand. It demonstrates that within the Buddhist tradition itself there is a vast fund of folkloric material which is more in touch with lay concerns than the more austere teaching found in the Canon proper - although it sometimes departs alarmingly from the orthodox tradition. Both sources, J?taka and Canon, each vast in extent, are thoroughly explored and compared, making them more accessible than they have ever been before, and revealing the extent to which concessions have been made by the monks to the laity and also the extent to which the monks themselves have been influenced by the folk tradition in which they were reared.

Stories and insights from the Buddha combine with magnificent imagery in this essential, inspirational collection. While concentrating on the Pali canon in particular (which contains the Dhammapada), Teachings of the Buddha reflects the rich diversity of Buddhist traditions. There are extracts from the later Mahayana sutras, time-honored Buddhist tales, and fascinating koans (riddles) from Zen masters. Introductory passages of commentary illuminate key meanings, and the book’s ten chapters mirror stages of the Buddha’s healing role, from diagnosis to cure—or enlightenment.
