12 Steps on the Buddha's Path is the extraordinary spiritual journey of a woman once trapped in the downward spiral of alcoholism. Misdiagnosed, Laura Keene was put in a mental hospital and given more than 40 electroshock treatments. Left incapable by the treatments of even speaking a coherent sentence, Keene was released against medical advice and ended up in the back row of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting where she embraced the 12 Step program and gradually recovered. Yet the black hole inside her remained, until, on a trek in the Himalayas, Keene discovered Buddhism and began a new path on the road to recovery. With humor and grace, this brilliant author shows that the experience, strength, and hope of Alcoholics Anonymous meld seamlessly with Buddha's teachings of wisdom and compassion.

Approaching the Great Perfection
Approaching the Great Perfection
By: Sam van Schaik
Our Price: $29.95
Members Price: $26.96

Dzogchen, the Great Perfection, is the highest meditative practice of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Approaching the Great Perfection looks at a seminal figure of this lineage, Jigme Lingpa, an eighteenth-century scholar and meditation master whose cycle of teachings , the Longchen Nyingtig, has been handed down through generations as a complete path to enlightenment. Ten of Jigme Lingpa's texts are presented here, along with extensive analysis by van Schaik of a core within Buddhism: Does enlightenment develop gradually, or does it come all at once? Though these two positions are often portrayed by modern scholars as entrenched polemical views, van Schaik explains that both tendencies are present within each of the Tibetan Buddhist schools.

But controlling a child's entire environment and keeping all pain at bay isnt feasible we can't prepare the world for our children, so instead we should focus on preparing our children for the world.

Timely and audacious, Buddha at the Apocalypse challenges us to look directly at the devastating assumptions underlying the very mechanisms of the modern world. We believe with certainty in the inevitable forward march of progress, in the natural rightness of humankind’s control of the environment, and, most pervasively, in the idea of an epic struggle that requires righteousness to utterly destroy evil. These images of apocalypse and dominance pervade our language, our politics, and, with coming of 2012, even our escapist entertainment. In Buddha at the Apocalypse, Kurt Spellmeyer offers us an alternative view that comes like breath of cool, fresh air in these times. Drawing on the Buddha, Spellmeyer makes an impassioned clarion call to awaken from the culture of destruction — or perish within it.

In this inspiring book, a venerable Tibetan monk draws on two classic Buddhist texts to present a range of techniques for beneficially transforming our minds. Arguing that one cannot attain awakening, or the complete cessation of all suffering, without the great key of compassion, Geshe Gyeltsen provides much practical advice on how to combat negative mental states and conditioning. His suggestions, which are deeply rooted in the Buddhist culture of Tibet, are often surprising - as when he counsels us to regard a bothersome person as a precious treasure that provides us with the opportunity to engage in the difficult practices of tolerance and patience! Through the rigorous application of "thought training" and the cultivation of the bodhisattva's altruistic attitude, we can learn to transform both ourselves and the environment around us.

Women played major roles in the history of Buddhist China, but given the paucity of the remaining records, their voices have all but faded. In Daughters of Emptiness, Beata Grant renders a great service by recovering and translating the enchanting verse -- by turns assertive, observant, devout -- of forty-eight nuns from sixteen centuries of imperial China. This selection of poems, along with the brief biographical accounts that accompany them, affords readers a glimpse into the extraordinary diversity and sometimes startling richness of these women's lives.
