Buddhism: A Method of Mind Training
26/04/2010 03:51 (GMT+7)
Buddhism is a way of life based on the training of the mind. Its one ultimate aim is to show the way to complete liberation from suffering by the attainment of the Unconditioned, a state beyond the range of the normal untrained mind. Its immediate aim is to strike at the roots of suffering in everyday life.
The Effect of Vipassana on the Work Environment
26/04/2010 03:50 (GMT+7)
To study the effect of Vipassana on the work environment, we interviewed people who had attended a ten-day Vipassana course. A questionnaire was given to them. Their colleagues were also interviewed to find out their views about the results of Vipassana.

Holistic Education and Vipassana
26/04/2010 03:50 (GMT+7)
Education, said Albert Einstein, is that which remains when everything that is learnt in school is forgotten. If we evaluate modem education by this definition, its chief outcomes can easily be identified as aggressive competition, pride and envy. At its best, the modem educational system imparts some professional knowledge and skills, but it lacks any cultivation of heart.
The Relevance of Vipassana for the Environmental Crisis
26/04/2010 03:50 (GMT+7)
Environmental pollution is a great threat to the survival of humankind on this planet. If effective measures are not taken immediately, a catastrophe which is similar in destructive capacity to that caused by nuclear war is imminent as a result of environmental pollution and increased exposure to U.V. radiation through ozone depletion.

 The coming 21st century will begin in a chaotic condition with the fever of capitalism and individualism. we tend to interpret the word 'ism' as an expression of will of human beings....However, capitalism and individualism are not 'isms' by which we, human beings, consciously remake our world.
Why should I experience the Zen?
16/06/2010 05:26 (GMT+7)
In my green years I took refuge in Buddhism the way a young tree regards its place in the external landscape. I looked at the world and the world looked back at me; and I thought that the way that I and the world appeared, each to the other, was all that mattered.

Explore the secrets of Zen and the Brain
16/06/2010 05:26 (GMT+7)
Zen meditators train attention both during sitting and daily life practice. How else can we conceptualize the process of long-range Zen meditative training? One suggestion is that it involves a deconditioning, the kind that whittles away old maladaptive aspects of the egocentric self.
The Poetics of Ch'an:Upaayic Poetry and Its Taosist Enrichment
16/06/2010 05:29 (GMT+7)
  The inherent suitability  of the poetic form for         communicating  the ineffable  has long been known to         poet-practioners in all mystical traditions.  Poetry         offers  possibilities  of indirection  and evocation         far   beyond   those   of  any  prose   style.  

The Unifying of Rdzogs Pa Chen Po and Ch'an
16/06/2010 05:16 (GMT+7)
  The traditional  accounts of the early history of TibetanBuddhism  are  far  from  unbiased.   They  do  not  portrayaccurately  the history  of Buddhism  as it first moved intothat  country.  The  political/social  context  was far morecomplex than traditional accounts would lead one to believe.

  The Chinese term tso-ch'an 坐禅( zazen ) was in        use among  Buddhist  practitioners   even  before  the        appearance of the Ch'an (Zen) School. Embedded in the        term  is the word  ch'an, a derivative  of the Indian        dhyana, which  is the  yogic   practice  of  attaining        samadhi  in  meditation.   Literally  translated, tso-        ch'an means "sitting  ch'an"   and has a comprehensive        and a specific  meaning.

Zens & zensibility

Buddhist Concepts (optional reading): Essentially, Buddhism is karma andthe awareness and transformation of the mind. It is the understanding ofThe Four Noble Truths which, of course, we don't have the space to go intohere, and the concept of Emptiness, which can best be explained as follows:
Zeno and Naagaarjuna on motion
19/07/2010 19:34 (GMT+7)
Similarities and differences between Zeno's Paradoxes  and Naagaarjuna's arguments against motion in Chapter        II of Muula-maadhyamika-kaarika (MMK II) have already        been  remarked   by  numerous   scholars   of  Indian        philosophy.  Thus  for instance  Kajiyama  refers  to        certain  of Naagaarjuna's  arguments  as "Zeno--like,

Zen Lit

Back in the Protestant fifties, that crypto-Buddhist Jack Kerouac foresaw a"rucksack revolution" in which "wandering Zen lunatics" would boxcar theirway across America, slipping Zen into the native environment in the sameway fluoride was being blended into the local water supplies.
Zen in the art of troubleshooting. (systems library techniques)
19/07/2010 19:33 (GMT+7)
I could offer more examples, but more might cloud the issues and             thus tell you less. The above statement is similar to a Zen koan, a             kind of puzzle Zen masters give to students to make them think             beyond their normal frame of reference--and to drive them crazy.

Zen and Western Psychotherapy:
Nirvanic Transcendence and Samsaric Fixation
13/07/2010 14:11 (GMT+7)
  Much has been said about the relationship between Buddhismand Western  psychotherapy.  I argue  that both the ends andthe means of Buddhist practice far exceed the limitations ofWestern psychotherapy  in its dominant forms.
Zen and the Art of Teamwork
13/07/2010 14:11 (GMT+7)
Chicago  Bulls coach Phil Jackson  has built a career  on    being different. From the Grateful Dead decal on the lamp    in his  office  to his  readings  of poetry  to his  team    before playoff games, his approach  provides a refreshing    contrast  to  the  steely,  tough-guy   persona  of  many    athletic  types.  As he explains  in his new book, Sacred    Hoops: Spiritual  Lessons of a Hardwood  Warrior, Jackson    uses a philosophy  based  in part on Zen Buddhism  to get    the most  out of his people.

Zen and the art of lifestyle maintenance
13/07/2010 14:10 (GMT+7)
By now you've no doubt heard that Buddhism is a pretty cool religion--it'sflexible and nondogmatic, and lots of celebrities say they practice it.Still, it's not exactly easy getting a handle on all that dharma stuff, orkeeping up with who's trading one-liners with the Dalai Lama.
Zen And Taoism Common And Uncommon Grounds of Discourse
13/07/2010 14:10 (GMT+7)
This  ambitious   paper   should   be  taken   as  merelypreliminary and exploratory in nature.  I cannot obviously dojustice to such a multi- faceted subject in a single essay. Ishould therefore like to present in basic outline a frameworkin which Zen and Taoism  can be seen under a better  light soas to foster  proper perspectives  on each and thereby  theirultimate relationship.

Zen and Some Comments on A Mondo
13/07/2010 14:09 (GMT+7)
Zen is not, certainly, a system of speculative philosophy. Zen is not concerned with an attempt to formulate, systematically and intellectually, answers to questions concerning the ultimate nature of man, the ultimate nature of the totality of reality in which man is caught up, or the ultimate nature of the good life and the good society for man.
Zen and Pragmatism--A Reply (Comment and Disussion)
13/07/2010 14:08 (GMT+7)
WHEN  I READ Dr.  Ames's  able  and stimulating        article,"Zen and Pragmatism,"(1) I regretted  that  I        had  not  made  my  points  clear  enough  in  my Zen        articles, but at the same  time  I was  thankful  for        having  incited  him to prepare  such an illuminating        paper.  I  realize  that  I  make  many  inconsistent        statements   in   my   presentation   of  Zen,  which        unfortunately   cause  my  readers  some  trouble  in        understanding  Zen, In the following  I will  try  to        give--in  brief-as much light as I can on my views so        far made public.
