Four Noble Truths of Wealth: A Buddhist View of Economic Life
By: Layth Matthews
Our Price: $17.95
Members Price: $16.15

The Buddhist advice for economic life is the same as for every other aspect of life: start with the view. The idea is that understanding the foundations of a situation, in this case the human condition, helps us to make better choices going forward. All human beings wish to be happy and free from suffering. The Buddhist approach is to contemplate the nature of happiness and suffering themselves as the means to navigate toward a more joyful existence and the elimination of suffering. Here suffering is distinguished from pain as the misery that comes from being habitually unable to appreciate things as they are.

Opening the Treasure of the Profound: Teachings on the Songs of Jigten Sumgon and Milarepa
By: Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen
Our Price: $22.95
Members Price: $20.65

In Tibet, vajra songs became popular when Milarepa gave teachings in that style to his disciples. His example influenced all Tibetan Buddhist schools, particularly the Kagyu lineages. People commonly memorized such songs and sang them with beautiful melodies. But vajra songs are much more than pleasant tunes or ordinary poetry. A vajra song reflects the enlightened mind of its author by encapsulating precisely profound meaning in just a few words. Thus, it can be difficult for the unenlightened to penetrate their meaning.

Sacred Seed
Sacred Seed

Our Price: $19.95
Members Price: $17.96

Essential to survival, seeds have profound spiritual implications. For centuries the planting of seed in the earth not only nourished humanity, but also symbolized the mystery of life and the journey of the soul. In our current supermarket lifestyle of pre-packaged products, far removed from the cycles of planting, we have nearly forgotten this mystery. Now as the integrity of the seed is threatened, so is its primal meaning.

Inspired by physicist and environmental leader Dr. Vandana Shiva, each essay draws on the wisdom of ancient and modern traditions. Mystics, shamans, monastics and priests remind us of the profound sacredness of the seedhow in its purity, it is the source and renewal of all of life.

Tibet: An Unfinished Story
By Lezlee Brown Halper and Stefan Halper
Our Price: $29.95
Members Price: $26.96

This book traces the origins and manifestations of the Tibetan myth, as propagated by Younghusband, Madam Blavatsky, Himmler, Acheson and Roosevelt. The authors discuss how, after WW2, Tibet-- isolated, misunderstood and with a tiny elite unschooled in political-military realities --- misread the diplomacy between its two giant neighbours, India and China, forlornly hoping London or Washington might intervene. China's People's Liberation Army sought nothing less than to deconstruct traditional Tibet, unseat the Dalai Lama and "absorb" this vast region into the People's Republic, and Lhasa succumbed to China's invasion in 1950.

Women in Early Indian Buddhism Comparative Textual Studies
Edited by Alice Collett

The path of practice as taught in ancient India by Gotama Buddha was open to both women and men. The texts of early Indian Buddhism show that women were lay followers of the Buddha and were also granted the right to ordain and become nuns. Certain women were known as influential teachers of men and women alike and considered experts in certain aspects of Gotama's dhamma. For this to occur in an ancient religion practiced within traditional societies is really quite extraordinary.
