Opening the door of your heart : and other Buddhist tales of happiness by Ajahn Brahm( Book )

39 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These modern tales of hope, forgiveness, freedom from fear and overcoming pain cleverly relate the timeless wisdom of the Buddha's teachings and the path to true happiness in a warm and accessible way. Ajahn Brahm was born and raised in the West and in his more than thirty years as a Buddhist monk he has gathered many poignant, funny and profound stories. He has tremendous ability to filter these stories through the Buddha's teaching so that they can have meaning for all sorts of readers ... 'More than statistics and theories, we really trust anecdotes and narratives. Our brains and beings are wired to learn deeply and easily via stories, and this splendid collection of 108 Buddhist-based tales proves the point with lasting, gentle, pervasive teachings ...In the dozen compelling and practical sections on topics like perfection, love, commitment, fear, pain, anger, forgiveness, happiness, freedom and humility, he weaves a long, rich tapestry of understanding using short threads of stories only a couple of pages long. Many tales lead one to the other, but each also stands alone. Resurrecting several 'chestnuts' as well as crafting new stories, Brahm avoids the pitfall of esoteric, inscrutable renderings sometimes found in Buddhist writing. Instead, without compromising integrity, he favours modern cadences and references (e.g., iPods and the World Wildlife Fund) to make the stories sail along ...this is a wonderful collection that can be enjoyed by a broad audience.--Publishers Weekly."

Der Weg zu Gelassenheit und innerer Stärke Von Termin zu Termin hetzend, stressgeplagt und ständig unter Druck findet der moderne Mensch nur noch schwer zu Erholung und innerer Ruhe.

Walking meditation : three expositions on walking meditation by Ajahn Ñāṇadhammo( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walking meditation is an important but often neglected part of Buddhist meditation practice. Walking meditation can arouse energy, stabilize concentration, and encourage penetration of the Buddha's teachings by using wise reflection. Many meditators have become enlightened while doing walking meditation because of the mental alertness and sharpness it arouses. Besides the physical benefits of walking, it is beneficial for the mind -- improving memory skills, learning ability, concentration, and abstract reasoning, as well as reducing stress and uplifting one's spirits. The three essays cover all aspects of walking meditation and how it is used in the Theravada Buddhist meditation tradition
