The fourteenth-century Zen master Bassui was recognized as one of the most important Zen teachers of his time. Accessible and eloquent, these teachings cut to the heart of the great matter of Zen, pointing directly to the importance of seeing our own original nature and recognizing it as Buddhahood itself. Bassui is taking familiar concepts in Buddhism and recasting them in an essential Zen light. Though he lived centuries ago in a culture vastly different from our own, Zen Master Bassui speaks with a voice that spans time and space to address our own modern challenges - in our lives and spiritual practice. Like the revered Master Dogen several generations before him, Bassui was dissatisfied with what passed for Zen training, and taught a radically reenergized form of Zen, emphasizing deep and direct penetration into one's own true nature. And also like Dogen, Bassui uses powerful and often poetic language to take familiar Buddhist concepts recast them in a radically non-dual Zen light, making ancient doctrines vividly relevant. This edition of Mud and Water contains several teachings never before translated.

Zen-Meister Ama Samy hat spannende eigene Antworten gefunden, vielleicht gerade weil er selbst zwischen allen Stühlen sitzt. Er ist Inder und wuchs in Burma auf. Seine Familie ist hinduistisch und sein Großvater war Schüler eines muslimischen Meisters. Er besuchte eine katholische Schule, wurde Jesuit und katholischer Priester und erhielt seine Autorisierung als erster und bislang einziger Zen-Lehrer in Indien von einem japanischen Roshi, der auch viele Christen aus aller Welt zu seinen Schülern zählte. In diesen neuen Zen-Vorträgen (teishos) legt er seine Art dar, Zen zu lehren und zu praktizieren, und verbindet dies mit erhellenden Zen-Geschichten und Koans. Neue Perspektiven und Nuancen des Zen, vor allem auch im Dialog zwischen Buddhismus und christlicher Tradition, schenken uns wertvolle Inspiration, um dem eigenen spirituellen Weg in Offenheit und innerer Freiheit zu folgen.

Traditionally, university students have gained access to world religions by reading primary texts. Discovering World Religions at 24 Frames Per Second takes students beyond the written page, offering an exploration of the same religious traditions through the study of feature films. The many definitions of religion are examined along with its various components, including doctrine, myth, ethics, ritual, and symbol. Specific religious traditions, including Hinduism, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism, popular religion, and Shinto are examined. Biographical sketches of directors whose films tend to focus on a particular religious tradition are also included, such as Zhang Yimou, Hayao Miyazaki, Deepa Mehta, and Akira Kurosawa. Discovering World Religions at 24 Frames Per Second is unique in the area of religion and film studies in that it isn't just a collection of essays. Instead it provides the introductory student with the necessary background information on the various religions before looking at how their ideas can be understood not through texts but through the cinematic medium. To keep the conversation fresh, most of the films used in the book were made within the last decade. Furthermore, examples range from popular, mainstream fare, such as Star Wars and the Lord of the Rings trilogy to lesser-known foreign films, such as The Wooden Man's Bride and The Great Yokai War. Several films with a 'cult-like' following are also discussed, including Fight Club, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Jacob's Ladder. This book is also unique in that instead of drawing upon the Judeo-Christian tradition, it draws from Eastern traditions.

In the early 21st century, Buddhism has become ubiquitous in America and other western nations, moving beyond the original bodhi tree in India to become a major global religion. During its journey westward, it has changed, adapted to new cultures, and offered spiritual help to many people looking for answers to the problems of life. It is being studied in institutions of higher education, being practice by many people, and having its literature translated and published. The Historical Dictionary of Buddhism covers and clarifies Buddhist concepts, significant figures, movements, schools, places, activities, and periods. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and over 700 cross-referenced dictionary entries.

Jetzt glücklich sein! "Wer vor dem Leid wegläuft, kann kein Glück finden." Der große Weisheitslehrer zeigt in seinem neuen Buch, wie wichtig es ist, nach den Wurzeln des Leids zu suchen. Erst dann können Verständnis und Mitgefühl entstehen. Diese beiden sind der Schlüssel zu einem erfüllten und zufriedenen Leben. Wenn wir lernen, unser Leid anzuerkennen, leiden wir bereits weniger. Wir hören auf, die unangenehmen Gefühle in uns durch übermäßigen Konsum zu kompensieren. Achtsamkeit hilft uns zu sehen, dass wir bereits mehr als genug Bedingungen haben, um glücklich zu sein. Viele konkrete Übungen im Buch helfen, Leid zu lindern und mit immer mehr Freude und Gelassenheit durchs Leben zu gehen.

Introduction by Paula Arai. This is the first collection to offer selections from the foundational texts of the Chinese, Korean, and Japanese Zen traditions in a single volume. Through representative selections from their poetry, letters, sermons, and visual arts, the most important Zen Masters provide students with an engaging, cohesive introduction to the first 1200 years of this rich -- and often misunderstood -- tradition. A general introduction and notes provide historical, biographical, and cultural context; a note on translation, and a glossary of terms are also included.
