El corazón de las enseñanzas de Buda parte de este párrafo: «Buda no era un Dios, sino un ser humano como tú y yo, y sufrió igual que nosotros. Si nos acercamos a Buda con el corazón abierto, nos mirará con ojos llenos de compasión y dirá: “Como en tu corazón hay sufrimiento, puedes entrar en mi corazón”». Según Thich Nhat Hanh, el núcleo de las enseñanzas de Buda lo constituyen las Cuatro Nobles Vardades: el sufrimiento, la causa del sufrimiento, la extinción del sufrimiento y el camino que conduce a la extinción del sufrimiento; y ese camino es el Noble Óctuple Sendero. Pero estas sencillas enseñanzas han sido a menudo tergiversadas, y en este libro esclarecedor el monje vietnamita nos las muestra en toda su luminosa belleza y su poder transformador.

There's a lot you probably don't know about the Buddha. For one, the real Buddha was thin. And before he became the "Enlightened One," he was a pampered prince named Siddhartha. He tried dieting once and didn't like it any more than you do. Instead, he sought a "middle way" between unhealthy overindulgence and unrealistic abstinence. The instructions he gave his monks about eating, more than 2,500 years ago, were surprisingly simple. Fast forward to today, and modern science confirms what Buddha knew all along. It's not what you eat that's important, but when you eat. You don't need to follow the latest fads or give up your favorite foods. You just have to remember a few guidelines that Buddha provided-guidelines that, believe it or not, will help you lose weight, feel better, and stop obsessing about food. Sure, Buddha lived before the age of doughnuts and French fries, but his wisdom and teachings endure, providing us with a sane, mindful approach to achieving optimum health.

From stress to well-being—give yourself the gift of the Buddha’s peace. No, it is not all in your head: life is stressful, and some lives more so than others. Yet people react to the same situations differently, and recognizing the difference between what we can control and what we can’t is crucial for stress management—and it is an awakening in and of itself. This practical book is designed to bring the benefits of mindfulness meditation practice to stress reduction. Unlike other stress-reduction books, Buddha’s Book of Stress Reduction also helps you develop the positive values of a calm and constructive attitude. It takes you from stress—where many of us find ourselves—to well-being. From the author of Buddha's Book of Sleep--which won the 2013 COVR Award for Best Book of the Year. Buddha's Book of Sleep includes a foreword by Thich Nhat Hanh.

También es la historia de Govinda y su propio camino al mismo fin, el conocimiento. "Todo fluye y regresa, incluido tú" le dijo un día el botero a Siddhartha y él comprobaría esta enseñanza al separarse y encontrar en cada etapa a su amigo Govinda.

El Dhammapada, traducido por primera vez al español directamente del pāli por Carmen Dragonetti y publicado en edición bilingüe por la Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos de Lima, Perú, es una colección de 423 estrofas, la mayoría de dos versos, tan apreciada en los países budistas como la Bhagavad-Gītā en el Hinduismo. No sólo es una fuente excepcional de conocimiento del Budismo, sino también una obra de extraordinario mérito literario y a la vez un tesoro de sabiduría universal. “Todo el que quiera llegar a comprender el alma interior del Budismo – ha escrito Hermann Oldenberg, el gran budólogo alemán – ha de volver al Dhammapada, la más hermosa de sus colecciones en verso.” La traducción de Carmen Dragonetti se distingue por su fidelidad al texto original, su claridad, su precisión en la interpretación del pensamiento de la obra y la fluidez y sencillez del estilo. Está precedida por una introducción que estudia en forma detallada y lúcida los principales conceptos del Budismo, y acompañada de notas que aclaran el contenido de los versos, permitiendo una cabal comprensión de los mismos. La introducción y las notas constituyen un medio de primer orden para el conocimiento de lo que realmente fue el Budismo en sus primeras etapas, base de sus ulteriores desarrollos. El interés que ha despertado esta obra y la aceptación que ha tenido se manifiesta en el hecho de que ésta es la octava edición que aparece. Esta octava edición fue realizada en colaboración por Carmen Dragonetti y Fernando Tola, quienes utilizaron para la traducción la nueva edición del Dhammapada aparecida en 1994, publicada por The Pali Text Society y realizada por O. von Hinüber y K.R. Norman, y puesta en líneas rítmicas por una de las hijas de ambos, Eleonora Tola. Contiene además importantes modificaciones que han enriquecido notablemente la introducción sobre los principales conceptos budistas.

'Who is she?' asks a voice. 'A foreigner,' someone answers. 'No, she's Afghan. Can't you tell?' 'She is not Afghan - she is writing.' A young boy of about ten sidles up to me and watches my notebook intently. He looks completely puzzled. He doesn't understand that a woman can write. The image of a woman holding a pen is far more alluring and powerful than anything the politicians here today have to say. The crowd grows and grows. Some laugh and point. I am conscious of my black scarf slipping from my head. Hamida Ghafour's family fled Afghanistan after the Russian invasion, when she was just a child. In 2003 she goes back as a journalist to cover her country's reconstruction, and finds it utterly unlike the world her parents have brought her up to believe in. In the Kabul of the 1970s, women wore miniskirts and drove buses; now few dare leave the house without the chadari. It is a society divided: between communists and mujahideen, between those who stayed and those who left - like Hamida herself. All around her is the West's first post-9/11 experiment with Islamic democracy. But the ordinary people she meets are engaged in a different kind of nation building: a 'beautician without borders' whose school teaches its female pupils economic independence; a woman campaigning fiercely against warlords and armed thugs for a seat in her country's new parliament; an archaeologist digging for a giant sleeping Buddha, a symbol of Afghanistan's lost civilisation. Hamida must sift through the rubble of her family's past to understand the nation's future - and to reclaim her sense of what it means to be Afghan.

Practising Buddhist and master storyteller Dharmachari Nagaraja weaves a thrilling narrative spell while at the same time conveying basic life lessons that will help children to develop their personality, deal with their anxieties, and find peace and confidence as they grow up. The stories explore themes from the Eightfold Path, which is Buddhism's practical route to a happy life. Topics covered, with the lightest of touches, include speaking in a kind and truthful manner, behaving with compassion, thinking selflessly and avoiding the pitfalls of egotism. Although providing gentle guidance on the art of living well, which is the basis of true happiness, each story is also compelling in its own right, featuring characters, settings and events that every child will find absorbing. Each narrative concludes with an affirmation that helps to draw out its positive message, while the superb, specially commissioned illustrations will delight your child and provide a starting-point for discussion and further enjoyment. The helpful introduction provides insights into the value of Buddhist principles for children and shows how visualisation, imaginative thinking and even first steps in meditation can help to nurture young minds and hearts.

Joseph Emet explores the intersection between Positive Psychology--the study of what makes people happy--and the ancient wisdom of Buddhism. Positive Psychology—with its focus not on mental "disease," but rather on what actually makes people happy—has revolutionized the way that we look at mental health. What many people don't realize, however, is that Positive Psychology is not as young a field of inquiry as we think. In fact, according to Joseph Emet, the original positive thinker was the Buddha himself. In this wise and inspiring book, Emet traces the fascinating intersection between the age-old wisdom of Buddhism and the latest scientific research into what makes people happy. In this book readers will discover: * How to replace negative thinking with positive thinking * How to move from frenzied thinking to quiet contemplation * The duty we have to others to live a happy life As Joseph explains in this work, the blue sky of happiness is found just beyond the grey clouds of sadness, everyday concerns, stress, or anxiety. Readers will find that the advice in this book can act as the gentle wind that clears those clouds away. From the Trade Paperback edition.
