Buddhisme

  • Kunsten at leve lykkeligt af Dalai Lama
    af Dalai Lama

    Bag alle Dalai Lamas metoder og teknikker findes et sæt grundlæggende trosforestillinger: en tro på alle menneskers fundamentale venlighed og godhed, en tro på mildhedens politik, og en følelse af fællesskab med alle levende væsner.Hans tanker er ikke baseret på blind tro eller religiøse dogmer, men derimod på sunde ræsonnementer og direkte erfaring. Hans forståelse af menneskets sind og adfærd er grundet på et livslangt studium. Hans anskuelser er rodfæstet i en tradition, som daterer sig mere end 2500 år tilbage, men alligevel afstemt af sund fornuft og dyb indsigt i moderne problemer. Hans enestående position som verdensberømthed har givet ham mulighed for at rejse jorden rundt adskillige gange, konfrontere sig med mange forskellige kulturer og folk samt udveksle tanker med topvidenskabsmænd og religiøse og politiske ledere. Resultatet heraf er en tilgang til menneskelige problemer, som på en gang er vis, optimistisk og realistisk.I Kunsten at leve lykkeligt præsenteres Dalai Lamas synspunkter i en form, der henvender sig til et vestligt publikum. Howard C. Cutler har samlet lange uddrag fra Dalai Lamas offentlige undervisning og referater fra sine private samtaler med tibetanernes åndelige overhoved til en inspirerende bog.

  • Radical Acceptance af Tara Brach
    - Awakening the Love that Heals Fear and Shame
    af Tara Brach

    'Radical Acceptance offers us an invitation to embrace ourselves with all our pain, fear and anxieties, and to step lightly yet firmly on the path of understanding and compassion. Please enjoy this nourishing and healing book.' Thich Nhat HanhIn the West, most of us have suffered the fear of not being 'good enough', feeling insecure about our appearance, our sexuality, our intelligence, our spiritual progress or - often most importantly - being worthy of love. When these feelings of insufficiency or self-aversion are strong, we fear abandonment and rejection. Many people have already found the Buddhist perspective on our emotional life to be extremely valuable - and this book will be a major practical contribution to the subject.

    Nøglen til at leve lykkeligtI tusindvis af år har buddhistiske munke vidst, at vi kan opnå balance, ro og livsglæde gennem meditation. Den nyeste hjerneforskning – foretaget på buddhistiske munke – har nu ført videnskabeligt bevis for, at meditation ændrer hjernens strukturer og neuroner, så vi bliver mere lykkelige.En af testpersonerne i denne banebrydende hjerneforskning er Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, som uddyber sin forståelse af lykken i Glæden ved at være til. Han ved af egen erfaring, at meditation kan forandre hjernen. Som barn led han i flere år af svære panikanfald, som han overvandt gennem intensiv meditation.Glæden ved at være til er fyldt med helt enkle meditionsøvelser. Bogen introducerer en lethed i forhold til det at meditere, og med venlighed, humor og varme giver Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche nye synsvinkler på meditation som en daglig praksis for det moderne menneske: Tag et lille skridt ad gangen, vær venlig mod dig selv og mediter kortvarigt flere gange om dagen.Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche er den 7. inkarnation af Yongle Mingyur Dorje, en legendarisk meditationsmester og lærer, hvis meditationslinje har haft en enorm indflydelse på den buddhistiske kanon. Yongey Rinpoche underviser over hele verden – også i Danmark."GLÆDEN VED AT VÆRE TIL er en herlig bog; den er let tilgængelig, giver en god introduktion til buddhismen og er fyldt med enkle øvelser, som gør det let at komme i gang med at meditere." – Psykologi

  • Why Buddhism is True af Robert Wright
    - The Science and Philosophy of Meditation and Enlightenment
    af Robert Wright

    From one of America's most brilliant writers, a New York Times bestselling journey through psychology, philosophy, and lots of meditation to show how Buddhism holds the key to moral clarity and enduring happiness.At the heart of Buddhism is a simple claim: The reason we sufferand the reason we make other people sufferis that we don't see the world clearly. At the heart of Buddhist meditative practice is a radical promise: We can learn to see the world, including ourselves, more clearly and so gain a deep and morally valid happiness. In this ';sublime' (The New Yorker), pathbreaking book, Robert Wright shows how taking this promise seriously can change your lifehow it can loosen the grip of anxiety, regret, and hatred, and how it can deepen your appreciation of beauty and of other people. He also shows why this transformation works, drawing on the latest in neuroscience and psychology, and armed with an acute understanding of human evolution. This book is the culmination of a personal journey that began with Wright's landmark book on evolutionary psychology, The Moral Animal, and deepened as he immersed himself in meditative practice and conversed with some of the world's most skilled meditators. The result is a story that is ';provocative, informative and...deeply rewarding' (The New York Times Book Review), and as entertaining as it is illuminating. Written with the wit, clarity, and grace for which Wright is famous, Why Buddhism Is True lays the foundation for a spiritual life in a secular age and shows how, in a time of technological distraction and social division, we can save ourselves from ourselves, both as individuals and as a species.

  • Forelsket i verden af Rinpoche Yongey Mingyur
    - En munks opdagelsesrejse ud i verden og ind i sig selv
    af Rinpoche Yongey Mingyur & Helen Tworkov

    FORELSKET I VERDEN er den verdenskendte tibetanske meditationslærer og munk Yongey Mingyur Rinpoches gribende personlige beretning. Han forlod alt – sit hjem, alle han kendte, forsikring om mad i maven hver dag og en beskyttet, privilegeret tilværelse som overhoved for tre klostre – og begav sig ud på en pilgrimsrejse for i praksis at afprøve alt det, han havde lært. Han ønskede at finde ud af, hvem han virkelig var, uden titler og roller. En nat sneg han sig ud, uden nogen opdagede det og levede de næste fire år som omvandrende munk i Indien, en til tider yderst barsk tilværelse som tigger på gaden, hvor han fik rig mulighed for at teste holdbarheden af sin spirituelle træning. Det er en fantastisk spændende historie, og hele beretningen igennem viser han os, hvordan vi kan forvandle vores frygt for døden og møde livet med glæde. 

  • Approaching the Buddhist Path af Dalai Lama
    af Dalai Lama & Thubten Chodron

    The first volume in a multi-volume collection presenting the Dalai Lama's comprehensive explanation of the Buddhist path.His Holiness the Dalai Lama has been publicly teaching Buddhism for decades. This series collects his presentations of every step of the path to enlightenment, compiled and coauthored by one of his chief Western disciples, the American nun Thubten Chodron. The Buddha wanted his students to investigate, to see for themselves whether what he said were true. As a student of the Buddha, the Dalai Lama promotes the same spirit of investigation, and as the rich tradition of the Buddha makes its way into new lands and cultures, His Holiness has recognized that new approaches are needed to allow seekers in the West to experience the relevance of the liberating message in their own lives. Such an approach cannot assume listeners are free from doubt and already have faith in Buddhism's basic tenets. The Library of Wisdom and Compassion series, therefore, starts from the universal human wish for happiness and presents the dynamic nature of the mind. This first volume also provides a wealth of reflections on Buddhist history and fundamentals, contemporary issues, and the Dalai Lama's own personal experiences. It stands alone as an introduction to Buddhism, but it also provides a foundation for the systematic illumination of the path in the volumes to come. The Library of Wisdom and Compassion collects the Dalai Lama's decades of presentations of every step of the path to enlightenment. It has been compiled and coauthored by one of his chief Western disciples, the American nun Thubten Chodron.

  • Ashins forår af Christina Lund Sørensen Spar 15%
    - - fortællinger fra Burma
    af Christina Lund Sørensen

    2012 er Burmas (Myanmar) år. Der er næppe blevet skrevet og sagt mere om det hidtil glemte land end i øjeblikket. “ASHINS FORÅR – fortællinger fra Burma” tager læserne med på en rejse gennem et smukt, men forpint land, der er under forandring. Guiden er den buddhistiske munk Ashin. Ashin er munk i et af verdens mest brutale militærregimer. I september 2007 går han og tusindvis af andre munke på gaden i Burma, hvor de viser deres utilfredshed med styrets undertrykkelse af befolkningen. Håbet sitrer i luften, men munkenes forsøg på revolution slår fejl. Militæret sætter hårdt ind over for munkene og fængsler, tæver og dræber dem for at få dem til at tie. Ashin kan kun bede til, at hans land nogensinde bliver et bedre sted at leve. I over to år har Christina Lund Sørensen fulgt den buddhistiske munk, Ashin, og sammen tager de på en rejse gennem Burma. Der udvikler sig et varmt venskab mellem journalisten og munken undervejs, mens de sammen forsøger at finde ud af, hvad det vil sige at være menneske i et af verdens mindst frie lande. ASHINS FORÅR er en dokumentarisk fortælling om en helt særlig munk, hans drøm om frihed, om kærlighed til en engelsk fodboldklub, om Aung San Suu Kyi og om at være munk i et land, der i årtier har været isoleret fra resten af verden, men som i disse år er under voldsom forandring. Dette er Burma. Om forfatteren :Christina Lund Sørensen (f. 1980) er journalist og har i en årrække beskæftiget sig med demokrati og menneskerettigheder i Sydøstasien og har boet i regionen. Som freelance korrespondent har hun dækket politik og konflikter for Danmarks Radio, Kristeligt Dagblad og Morgenavisen Jyllands-Posten. Hun har interviewet personer som Aung San Suu Kyi og Abu Bakar Bashir. Christina Lund Sørensen blev i 2009 nomineret til Nairobiprisen for at sætte fokus på forholdene i Sydøstasien.

  • Fear af Thich Nhat Hanh
    - Essential Wisdom for Getting Through The Storm
    af Thich Nhat Hanh

    Renowned Zen master and Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh, explores the origins of fear and offers detailed practises on how to deal with its often toxic presence in our lives. Formed by a lifetime of mindfulness in action, he also shows us the path to peace, happiness and freedom that can come out of such explorations. For him, happiness is not found by suppressing our emotions but by purposefully living in a mindfully aware state. Only by practicing mindfulness in this way can we identify the source of pain that is responsible for our fear and anxiety, and cut it off from its roots so that the pain can subside. When we're not held in the grip of fear, we can truly embrace the gifts of life.

With over 9,000 monks in residence in 1959, it was the second largest monastery in the world.

We are introduced to some of Sera's most important lamas and hermits, as well as its curriculum, yearly calendar, the daily life of scholar monks, and the role Sera monks played in the political history of Tibet. Former Sera monks themselves, Cabezon and Dorjee demonstrate their firsthand knowledge of the monastery, its traditions, and daily life on every page. Scrupulously researched over decades, Sera Monastery is the most comprehensive history of a Tibetan monastery ever written in a Western language.

  • Mind Seeing Mind af Roger R. Jackson
    - Mahamudra and the Geluk Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism
    af Roger R. Jackson

    A definitive study of one of the most important practices in Tibetan Buddhism, with translations of a number of its key texts.Mahamudra, the ';great seal,' refers to the ultimate nature of mind and reality, to a meditative practice for realizing that ultimate reality, and to the final fruition of buddhahood. It is especially prominent in the Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, so it sometimes comes as a surprise that mahamudra has played an important role in the Geluk school, where it is part of a special transmission received in a vision by the tradition's founder, Tsongkhapa. Mahamudra is a significant component of Geluk ritual and meditative life, widely studied and taught by contemporary masters such as the Dalai Lama. Roger Jackson's Mind Seeing Mind offers us both a definitive scholarly study of the history, texts, and doctrines of Geluk mahamudra and masterful translations of its seminal texts. It provides a skillful survey of the Indian sources of the teaching, illuminates the place of mahamudra among Tibetan Buddhist schools, and details the history and major textual sources of Geluk mahamudra. Jackson also addresses critical questions, such as the relation between Geluk and Kagyu mahamudra, and places mahamudra in the context of contemporary religious studies. The translation portion of Mind Seeing Mind includes ten texts on mahamudra history, ritual, and practice. Among these are the First Panchen Lama's root verses and autocommentary on mahamudra meditation, his ritual masterpiece Offering to the Guru, and a selection of his songs of spiritual experience. Mind Seeing Mind adds considerably to our understanding of Tibetan Buddhist spirituality and shows how mahamudra came to be woven throughout the fabric of the Geluk tradition.

    af Lori Deschene

    Many of us know intellectually that we need to be good to ourselves if we want to be happy. But it feels so hard. We are simultaneously the harsh judge and the lost, scared child who wants to stop feeling judged. It becomes a vicious cycle. It only stops when we step outside ourselves and observe how we get ourselves stuck. TINY BUDDHA'S GUIDE TO LOVING YOURSELF from tinybuddha.com creator Lori Deschene, shares 40 unique perspectives and insights on topics related to loving yourself, including: realizing you're not broken, accepting your flaws, releasing the need for approval, forgiving yourself, letting go of comparisons, and learning to be authentic. Featuring stories selected from hundreds of TinyBuddha.com contributors, the book provides an honest look at what it means to overcome critical, self-judging thoughts to create a peaceful, empowered life. TINY BUDDHA'S GUIDE TO LOVING YOURSELF is a collection of reflections and epiphanies from people, just like you, who are learning to love themselves, flaws and all. The book combines all the elements that made Deschene's first book, Tiny Buddha, compelling-authentic, stories (four in each chapter); insightful observations about our shared struggles and how to overcome them; and action-oriented suggestions, based on the wisdom in the stories.
