Summary:

Lama Surya Das, the most highly trained American lama in the Tibetan tradition, presents the definitive book on Western Buddhism for the modern-day spiritual seeker. The radical and compelling message of Buddhism tells us that each of us has the wisdom, awareness, love, and power of the Buddha within; yet most of us are too often like sleeping Buddhas. In Awakening the Buddha Within, Surya Das shows how we can awaken to who we really are in order to lead a more compassionate, enlightened, and balanced life. It illuminates the guidelines and key principles embodied in the noble Eight-Fold Path and the traditional Three Enlightenment Trainings common to all schools of Buddhism: Wisdom Training: Developing clear vision, insight, and inner understanding—seeing reality and ourselves as we really are. Ethics Training: Cultivating virtue, self-discipline, and compassion in what we say and do. Meditation Training: Practicing mindfulness, concentration, and awareness of the present moment. With lively stories, meditations, and spiritual practices, Awakening the Buddha Within is an invaluable text for the novice and experienced student of Buddhism alike.

Summary:

'Life is about relationships - the relationship we have with ourselves, with each other, with the world, as well as the connection to that which is beyond any of us. WHen our relationships are food, we feel good; when they are bad, we feel awful. Let's accept it:we need each other. We need to feel connected; we need to feel each other's presence and love.' With his first bestseller, Awakening the Buddha Within, Surya Das, the American-born lama, gave the Western world a primer for Tibetan Buddhism. Now, he continues to share this ancient wisdom as he shows us how to integrate all the experiences of our lives, both positive and negative, into our spiritual search. How happy we are with our relationships - with others, the world and ourselves - largely determines how joyous and fulfilled we will be. In Awakening the Biddhist Heart, Lama Surya Das shows us how to use our innate Spiritual Intellgence to build more loving and satisfying connections. As he helps us to increase our self-awareness and sensitivity towards others, making us better mates, parents, friends and members of society, Surya Das demonstrates how we can make our relationships more meaningful as he guides us through Buddhist practices that release negative emotions which enable us to learn from those we love, and those we don't.

Summary:

Many of us long to connect with something greater than ourselves to experience the sacred in our daily lives, and to enhance our sense of spiritual enlightenment - yet often we don't know where to begin. Now, in Awakening to the Sacred, Lama Surya Das integrates essential Buddhist practices with a variety of other spiritual philosophies, wisdoms and traditions to show how we can create a personalized spiritual practice based on our own individual beliefs, aspirations and needs. Here, as he examines common themes that lie at the heart of any spiritual path, including faith, doubt, love and compassion - and explores rituals such as prayer, yoga and meditation - he provides practical advice on how we can nurture our inner spirit every day of our lives. With his unique and accessible approach, Surya Das emphasizes that we are all, by nature, spiritual beings and that our lives are naturally filled with sacred moments. Awakening to the Sacred illuminates the natural meditations already present in daily life, and shows how we can use them to awaken our hearts and minds, and progress towards inner peace, happiness and enlightenment.

Summary:

Bouddha, comme vous ne l'avez jamais vu ! Et si Bouddha, loin de son image de vieux sage impassible, était avant tout un agitateur, un révolutionnaire pourfendeur des idées reçues et des vieux dogmes à la dent dure ? S'appuyant sur des années d'expérience dans l'enseignement du bouddhisme, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoché dépoussière la tradition et la rend accessible à tous. Avec un humour décapant, il nous propose sa méthode pour une pratique moderne et en perpétuelle évolution. Vous avez l'impression de laisser la confusion, l'angoisse, le stress régner en maîtres sur votre quotidien ? Et si, à la manière du Bouddha, vous vous rebelliez contre vous-même ? Oubliez les statuettes replètes, les coussins ergonomiques, les vapeurs d'encens. Non, le bouddhisme ne se pratique pas à l'ombre d'un arbre centenaire en compagnie de moines rasés. Le bouddhisme est actuel, résolument dans notre époque. Et, surtout, le bouddhisme est avant tout une philosophie de la rébellion. Grâce à ce livre ludique et pédagogique, partez à la découverte du rebelle en vous. Questionnez votre perception de vous-même et du monde. Libérez votre esprit des carcans qui le paralysent. Et n'hésitez pas à désobéir pour découvrir qui vous êtes vraiment. Une relecture provocante et dynamique de la tradition bouddhiste qui nous enseigne à pratiquer l'attention et la méditation pour mieux gérer nos émotions et connaître enfin la liberté, la vraie.

Summary:

What did the Dalai Lama say to the pizza guy from Brooklyn? “Make me one with everything!” It’s a familiar joke, muses Lama Surya Das, but it holds a profound truth: that in addition to inner peace, meditation is a path for all-inclusive connection .With Make Me One with Everything, he invites us to experience this expansive dimension of the dharma through the art of intermeditation. “If you’ve ever felt ‘at one’ with something—your beloved or your child, a wooded trail, a favorite song—then you’ve experienced intermeditation,” teaches Surya Das .Based on Tibetan Buddhism’s core insights into the deeply connected nature of who we are, intermeditation offers both new and experienced meditators a fresh new way to commune with every moment—on and off the cushion—in oneness with our partners, our family and friends, our enemies, those in need near or far, our higher Selves, and Nature itself.

Summary:

One moment of total awareness is one moment of perfect enlightenment. This is the ultimate insight of Dzogchen, or the Great Perfection, the pinnacle teaching of Tibetan Buddhism. With his previous bestselling books, including Awakening the Buddha Within, American-born Tibetan Buddhist teacher Lama Surya Das has taught millions about the innate wakefulness and liberation that can be our natural ways of being. Now, with Natural Radiance, he offers his first complete daily practice program for the personal experience of the “swift and direct path” of Dzogchen. Dzogchen affirms that we are all buddhas by nature—infinitely open, luminous, compassionate, wise, and free. This profound realization, say the teachings, cannot be understood intellectually or studied mentally, but it can be passed from teacher to student through the spoken word. With Natural Radiance, it is now possible to learn these time–honored practices as they have been shared for centuries—through direct transmission from an accomplished master of the tradition. Join Lama Surya Das as your trusted guide to help you awaken to the sky-like nature of mind—what is known in Tibetan as rigpa, or total and pure presence. “This is the time of Dzogchen,” says Lama Surya Das, “when we most need this immediate teaching of the inherent perfection of being … the natural state of enlightenment.” Includes seven guided Dzogchen techniques.

Summary:

Lamya Surya Das, American Lama and spiritual leader, whose inimitable light and lively universal teaching style has awakened the spirituality of thousands, now shares an enlightened approach to change and loss, dealing with difficult emotions such as fear, grief, and anger, and the role of crisis in uncovering our authentic selves. For many people, recent years have been characterized by profound change, whether it relates to financial upheaval, political shifts, or even massive losses of life to disease and violence. Even on the personal level each person must confront the curves life throws his or her way. Buddhism has a great deal to say about change and impermanence and how to meaningfully deal with it. In fact, change - whether on a large or small scale - provides our most important opportunity for learning about ourselves and the nature of reality. From this essential insight Lama Surya Das has crafted a fulfilling and important path to understanding and healing ourselves and finding peace. Full of personal stories, anecdotes, practical exercises, guided meditations and reflections, LETTING GO OF THE PERSON YOU USED TO BE addresses life's most universal difficulties in a way that is accessible to all.

Summary:

The best-selling author of Awakening the Buddha Within addresses life's most provocative and tantalizing questions simply, directly, and powerfully. Every life is a journey through the unknown. Along the way, however, we tend to encounter the same perplexing questions again and again. Some are cosmic enigmas that have always tested the human mind: What is my purpose in life? What happens after I die? Others are puzzles presented by daily life in modern society: What, if anything, justifies assisted suicide? What is my personal responsibility to the homeless? According to Lama Surya Das, one of the foremost Western Buddhist scholars and teachers, the more we seek to resolve these mysteries, the more fully we live. Along with his own personal beliefs, the author presents a variety of thoughtful points of view representing different schools of Buddhism, other religions, spirituality in general, and pragmatism. The Big Questions challenges readers in the most stimulating and thoughtful way to formulate individual, authentic responses to life's big questions.

Summary:

The great way does not have to be a difficult journey. The Buddha-nature or spirit within is fundamentally pure. Many people end up trying to sit their way to emptiness to purify what is already divine. I say less sitting and more awareness in this book for a very important reason. We can reach a point where the mind can rest naturally much sooner by making a direct connection with nature. Some sitting meditation is always required, but we must practice continual awareness with our eyes open, even while walking to the post office. Sitting around like a stone Buddha is not the path I am sharing. I hope that Remember Zen captures the subtleties of enlightenment well. It has the potential to remove decades or even lifetimes of practice from one who is ready to change their consciousness now.When we understand the three main components of our being better, it is much easier to see the problems a mind spinning out of control with desires and life-issues can bring. Buddhism puts a lot of thought into the concept of emptiness or voidness. I call it oneness in the book. Buddha never mentioned God or the prime creator for a simple reason--if we rely on an external force we will never look within and attain. He knew that when more people began to see the interdependence of everything they would naturally sense the oneness of it all. We are connected to all that is and when we are ready, the cosmos assists us in our awakening.

Summary:

***WINNER, 2011 Storytelling World Resource Award – Best Storytelling Collection The jataka tales—stories of the Buddha’s past lives (in both human and animal form)—were first said to have been told by the Buddha himself 2,500 years ago. Five hundred and fifty jataka tales comprise part of the oldest Buddhist text, the Pali Canon. From this wealth of folklore, award-winning author and storyteller Rafe Martin has chosen ten tales that illustrate the ideals of the Buddhist paramitas, or “perfections” of character: giving, morality, forbearance, vitality, focused meditation, wisdom, compassionate skillful means, resolve, strength, and knowledge. Artist and designer Richard Wehrman helps bring the spirit of these stories alive with rich illustrations that open each chapter. Endless Path presents these ancient stories, usually reduced to children’s tales in the West, for adults, reconnecting modern seekers with the more imaginative roots of Buddhism. The jatakas help readers see their own lives, their failures and renewed efforts, in the same light as the challenges the Buddha faced—not as obstacles but as opportunities for developing character and self-understanding. Endless Path demonstrates the relevance of these tales to Buddhist lay practitioners today, as well as to those more broadly interested in Buddhist teaching and the ancient art of storytelling. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Summary:

As the category of women’s spirituality continues to grow, The Buddha’s Wife offers to a broad audience for the first time the intimate and profound story of Princess Yasodhara, the wife Buddha left behind, and her alternative journey to spiritual enlightenment. What do we know of the wife and child the Buddha abandoned when he went off to seek his enlightenment? The Buddha’s Wife brings this rarely told story to the forefront, offering a nuanced portrait of this compelling and compassionate figure while also examining the practical applications her teachings have on our modern lives. Princess Yasodhara’s journey is one full of loss, grief, and suffering. But through it, she discovered her own enlightenment within the deep bonds of community and “ordinary” relationships. While traditional Buddhism emphasizes solitary meditation, Yasodhara’s experience speaks of “The Path of Right Relation,” of achieving awareness not alone but together with others. The Buddha’s Wife is comprised of two parts: the first part is a historical narrative of Yasodhara’s fascinating story, and the second part is a “how-to” reader’s companion filled with life lessons, practices, and reflections for the modern seeker. Her story provides a relational path, one which speaks directly to our everyday lives and offers a doorway to profound spiritual maturation, awakening, and wisdom beyond the solitary, heroic journey.
