3 hours past sunset.
They sound like flying barking dogs
in the dark night sky.
I've been studying Buddhism for a couple of years now.
It is rare to find one source jam-packed with
Thich Nhat Hanh's "The Heart of the Buddha's Teachings"
is one for me.
Here is another:
If you want to "cut to the chase scene"
if you want to jump-start your practice,
if you wonder, "What does a good Buddhist
do with his or her time?"
This is the guide.
Here is perhaps the most useful
Buddhist Dharma audio you will ever find.
Go here: http://www.kmspks.org/download/audio.htm
Look for Venerable Mahinda "Mindfulness in Modern Living",
T2-3 (6 MB). Here is a direct link to audio: http://bit.ly/A7iQv
I'm thinking of checking out the entire series.
Topics for your further study. You should understand:
- The Noble Eightfold Path
("Right Mindfulness" is #7.
Some people say the description of
80-95% of Buddhist practice is here)
- Four Noble Truths
- Dependent Co-arising
- The 5 or 10 Kleshas and the 3 Poisons
That's about it!
