Living Dharma

 

In this book Dharma can (previously published under the title Living Buddhist Masters), Jack Kornfield Dharma teachings presents the heart of Buddhist practice as taught by twelve highly respected masters from Southeast Asia, Here, renowned teachers such as Mahasi teach Dharma Sayadaw, U Ba Khin, Mohnyin Sayadaw, and Achaan Maha Boowa describe a rich variety Dharma of meditation Dharma than techniques—practices that can lead to the dissolution of a limited sense of self, an awakening of Dharma insight, compassion for and Dharma all beings, and the realization of Nirvana. In other chapters, Achaan Chaa, Achaan Buddhadasa, and Sunlun Sayadaw offer practices clarifying the essential for Dharma attitude that will allow each person to discover the truth of the Buddha's teaching here and now—the living Dharma. The book also provides an introduction to the basic tenets of Buddhism and a look at the Buddhist tradition as taught in Burma, Thailand, and Laos.

Comment: This book is refreshing and abundant in its ability to present the wonderful breadth of Thai and Burmese Theravada. Prior to reading it, my exposure to Theravada was largely confined to that form practiced in Sri Lanka. It will certainly expose one to the richness expounded by adepts of the Forest Tradition. I cannot comment enough on the multifaceted nature of this school of Buddhism, with regard to differing perspectives on teaching and methodology. For those interested in expanding their knowledge.
