This eight-book series takes you through the entire arc of Buddhist practice, from first sitting to final awakening, what is also called “enlightenment.” They provide instruction on the first stage of meditation, on ethical conduct, the life and times of the Buddha himself, as well as the foundational, wisdom teachings of the Buddha.
The topics then move on to more advanced topics like mindfulness, concentration, and daily living. And finally there are the transcendent issues of rebirth, the Buddhist cosmology, and awakening itself.
What we discover is that the Buddha’s message is timeless. It does not need to be modernized, merged with the field of psychology, or Westernized. One of the great lessons of the Buddha’s discourses is that in 2500 years, the human mind has not changed. And the cure for our problems of living has not changed, either.
