Via The Quilted Librarian (fantastic blog, btw), I found a fabulous article by Norman Fischer called On Zen Work.  It is from Turning Wheel – the journal of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship.  The article can be found at a fabulous site called Talks on Zen Practice and Meditation, with many Dharma talks and teachers featured.  Check it out!

This is the first in a series by HHK17:

In April 2008, at Sherabling Monastery, India, after a weeklong Mahamudra Teaching and Transmission, I had the opportunity to meet H.E. Tai Situ Rinpoche for an interview.   I asked him to comment on some phrases of his that I had noted down during the teaching.  The result is this little film here.

Nagarjuna Institute of Exact Methods

•February 28, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Nagarjuna Institute of Exact Methods is a center of Buddhist Learning, which serves the needs of the Buddhist community in the Kathmandu valley. It aims at enlightening Nepalese people about their own form of Buddhism, its philosophy and practice.”

This is a pretty interesting site, but as this blog’s focus is online Dharma resources, I’d like to specifically point readers to their collection of links for downloadable e-books, fairly small, but really interesting.

If I haven’t mentioned this, there’s a collection of audio files at the Kadampa Center website, featuring companion audio for the FPMT’s Discovering Buddhism series, amongst other titles. Check it, if you’re so inclined.

Discovering Buddhism: Mind and its Potential (Kadampa Center) (November 13, 2006)

•August 6, 2007 • Leave a Comment

Via the Internet Archive (fantastic resource, by the way), here’s a collection of audio files which are a part of the FPMT’s Discovering Buddhism series. Here’s the text from the Archive page:

Mind and its Potential is the first course in the Discovering Buddhism series presented by Kadampa Center. Discovering Buddhism is a 14-course series of introductory Buddhist theory and practice designed by the Foundation for the Preservation of Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).

Examine what is “mind,” its nature and function, and how it affects our experience of happiness and suffering. Come explore the differentiation between mind and brain, mind as the creator of our experiences, and the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. In addition, learn methods to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes and create a positive and joyous mind.

Kadampa Center, affiliated with the FPMT, is located in Raleigh, NC. For more information on the Center, see http://www.kadampa-center.org; for more information on FPMT, see http://www.fpmt.org.

As there are 20 resources on this page, I’m just going to include the link, and not direct links to the English translation articles and eBooks at the Fo Guang Shan Monastery. Check ’em out – I just opened up and started reading “The Essence of Buddhism,” and it’s a really interesting look at the 4 Noble Truths.

Scroll through and you may find something interesting – topics range from the basics of Chan Buddhism to the Six Paramitas.
