An age-old battle between Monism and Dualism. An underground church determined to achieve mass control. A sacred and powerful tool of transformation, unleashed from the birthplace of the original Buddha.<br /><br />When Australian surf instructor and healer, Ramón Joyce, is charged with the unlikely goal of uniting humanity, a Nepalese holy man entrusts him with ‘The Brahman Bible’. This ancient text has the power to fulfil Einstein’s quest for a ‘Unified Theory’, the Holy Grail of modern physics.<br /><br />Aided by his eccentric librarian uncle, Jean-Claude Liberte, a legion of Vedic scholars, an exotic yoga teacher named Magenta, and the wisdom of the infamous Bohm-Krishnamurti dialogues, Ramón must outsmart and out-spirit a cunning enemy. <br /><br />Dr Randolph Gruber, leader of the Church of Descartes, determines to capture the mystical knowledge of the Monists and harness it for his own ghastly mission—spreading Conflict, Oppression, Religious extremism, Paranoia, Spectatorship and Egoism, via the evil doctrine of C.O.R.P.S.E. <br /><br />Intrigue and romance. Espionage and abduction. As one group seeks to outmanoeuvre the other, a perilous plan is conceived to neutralise Gruber and his church. But will the mystery of quantum entrainment be unlocked too late?<br /><br />Global control or universal harmony? Evil domination or spiritual mastery? The salvation and evolution of humankind hang in the balance.

INTRODUCTION<br /><br /><br /><br />Le Bodhicaryâvatâra est un poème bouddhique en 913 vers et 10 chapitres, dont le titre, que nous avons rendu un peu librement par La Marche à la Lumière, signifie littéralement : Introduction à la pratique en vue de la Bodhi[1].<br /><br />La Pratique (caryâ, la « marche », au sens étymologique) est l’ensemble des exercices spirituels qui acheminent vers son but le futur Buddha.<br /><br />La Bodhi est l’« Éveil », l’Illumination suprême qui révèle au Buddha la loi de l’univers, donc la Lumière par excellence. Mais elle est plus qu’un état transcendant de l’esprit : elle implique aussi la charité parfaite, le désir fervent de guérir la douleur du monde. Le Buddha n’est pas seulement un Voyant, il est encore un Sauveur. Cette notion ne fait pas, à vrai dire, partie intégrante de la signification primitive, car Çâkyamuni, en possession de la Bodhi, hésita, si on en croit l’Écriture, à communiquer aux hommes la vérité qu’il venait de conquérir ; et d’ailleurs il existe une classe de buddhas désignés par le terme expressif de « chacun pour soi » (pratyeka-buddha), qui gardent pour eux leur bodhi. Mais il se produisit au cours des temps, dans le sein de l’Église bouddhique, un mouvement d’idées qui fit passer au premier plan la caritas generis humani, de façon que la « pensée de la Bodhi », dont il est si souvent question dans notre texte, c’est moins la pensée de connaître la vérité que celle de sauver le monde. Le Bodhičaryâvatâra est un des témoins de ce nouvel évangile, qui porte dans l’histoire religieuse le nom de Mahâyâna, « Grand Véhicule », expression un peu singulière, mais qu’un mot suffira à expliquer.<br /><br />L’Idéal apparaît à l’Hindou comme le terme ultime d’un long voyage à travers une série d’existences. Les bouddhistes ont fait grand usage de cette conception dans leur langue technique : l’ordination du moine est un « départ » (pravrajyâ) ; l’accès au premier degré de la sainteté est l’« entrée dans le courant » (srotaâpatti) ; la perfection est l’« arrivée à l’autre rive » (pâramitâ) ; le Buddha est un « chef de caravane » (sârthavâha), le « conducteur de l’attelage humain » (purusha-damyasârathi). Ce voyage suppose naturellement des voitures ou des bateaux, en un mot des « véhicules » (yâna). Il y en a deux principaux : celui des Auditeurs et celui des Bodhisattvas, ou — comme les nomment de préférence les adeptes du dernier — le « Petit Véhicule » (Hînayâna) et le « Grand Véhicule » (Mahâyâna). Ils ne mènent pas leurs voyageurs à la même destination : l’un les conduit à la paix du Nirvana, l’autre, par la pratique de la charité, à l’état idéal de Buddha sauveur du monde. C’est à l’Église mahâyâniste qu’appartenait l’auteur du Bodhičaryâvatâra, Çântideva.

Extrait : <br />La ville où jadis avait vécu le grand ascète Kapila était d’une sereine magnificence. Ses murailles semblaient <br />des nuages de lumière, et, de ses maisons comme de ses jardins, émanait une splendeur divine : on l’eût dite <br />bâtie sur un morceau du ciel. Partout des pierreries y brillaient. Aussi n’y connaissait-on point l’obscurité, <br />non plus que la pauvreté. La nuit, les rayons de la lune tombaient sur les demeures d’argent, et la ville était <br />un étang de lys ; le jour, les rayons du soleil tombaient sur les terrasses d’or, et la ville était une rivière <br />de lotus.<br />Le roi Çouddhodana régnait sur Kapilavastou, et il en était la plus noble parure. Il était bienveillant et libéral ; <br />il ignorait l’orgueil et il pratiquait la justice. Il courait aux ennemis les plus braves, qui tombaient dans les <br />batailles comme des éléphants frappés par Indra. À l’éclat de sa gloire disparaissaient les méchants, comme les <br />grandes ténèbres aux rayons aigus du soleil. Il éclairait le monde, et à ses familiers il montrait les voies qu’il <br />fallait suivre. Son illustre sagesse lui avait gagné d’innombrables amis, des amis pleins de vaillance et de raison ; <br />et, comme la lueur des étoiles fait valoir la lumière de la lune, leur clarté rehaussait sa splendeur...

“Your life is like a fish in a drying well, what’s to rejoice?” <br />-Frank Lin <br /> <br />Mindfulness is a powerful practice that can change your life. The ideology behind mindfulness is rather simple: by achieving a deeper sense of self-awareness, you open yourself up to the ability to have a greater control over yourself and thus over your life in general. However, mindfulness can be a lot deeper than that. And, in reality, a lot harder, too. Many people struggle to attain mindfulness in their life because they attempt to accomplish it all at once. Or, because they fail to understand what mindfulness truly is. <br /> <br />Mindfulness is so much more than just Meditation. <br /> <br />This book is based on the Buddhist teachings around mindfulness and all practices of the mind. Within’ the text, you will learn valuable information about how Buddhist teachings relate to mindfulness and how you can use them to leverage your inner purification, peace, and happiness. Understand that you do not have to consider yourself a Buddhist by religion to gain value from these teachings and practices. You can consider it as a way of life, instead. One that allows you to gain the most value from your life by living in the present moment. <br /> <br />Within’ the Chapters of “Mindfulness: More Than Just Meditation” you will learn many powerful lessons that will draw you deeper into your mind and existence and gain a greater awareness and understanding of your life and the world around you. Some of the practices you will learn about include: Four Noble Truths, the Marks of Existence, the Three Poisons, and the Five Aggregates. In addition to these, you will learn many other powerful lessons that will assist you in your journey. <br /> <br />As well as understanding the concepts of mindfulness and learning these important lessons, you will learn specific ways that you can practice mindfulness within your own daily life. This book is complete with examples and practical approaches on how you can infuse your daily routine with powerful practices that will make it easier than ever for you to become mindful and develop your inner purification and peace. <br /> <br />You will learn to detach yourself from modern suffering and liberate yourself to freedom and a more stabilized acquisition of inner peace in this frantic world.

<h1>Do you want to stop living with stress, unworthiness, social anxiety, insecurity, anger, sadness, or a sense of lack? Do you feel lost about how to effectively treat those disturbing intrusive thoughts your having?</h1><br /><b>Or are you fed up with feeling like no matter what you do, the struggles of life constantly bring you down?</b><br /><br /><h2>The truth is...We all experience the occasional negative thought. But if you always feel overwhelmed, then you NEED to read this book </h2><br />Did you know that a jaw-dropping 75-98 percent--of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. What we think about truly affects us both physically and emotionally.<br /><br />It certainly seems as though these emotions are inevitable, and directly created by our circumstances, our situations, and the people in our lives. However, it is possible to discover that all your unwanted emotions are actually created by the thoughts in your mind. More importantly, each of these emotions can vanish in an instant if you just stop believing the thoughts that create them.<br /><br /><h2>You are what you think</h2><br /><b>Let me give you an example!</b><br /><br />If a random person tells you, "The world is going to end tomorrow", and you believe them, how would you feel? You would likely experience fear. But if you didn't believe them, then how would their comment make you feel? You almost certainly wouldn't be emotionally affected.<br /><br />This demonstrates that when you believe someone's words to be true, those words create emotions. <b>But if you don't believe someone's words, those same words don't have the power to create emotions.</b><br /><br />The same is true of the words (thoughts) in your mind. If you believe a negative thought about yourself or your life, that thought will create an unwanted emotion. However, if you don't believe that thought, it quite simply won't create the unwanted emotion.<br /><br /><h2>Introducing “Relax Release Let Go”</h2><br />The good news is, there is a system. A step-by-step process, you can use to take control.<br /><br />You can control your thoughts, and create the outcome you want, for any area of your life.<br />"Relax Release Let go” is the answer. <br />It's how I, and thousands of others around the world, are moving toward the life we all seek.<br /><br />I give you the skills, that will allow you to finally control of your thoughts. Commit to this action plan, and your life will never be the same.<br /><h2>This Book Will Help You To:</h2><br /><br /><li><b>Experience peace in situations that used to be filled with anxiety and stress</b></li><br /><li>Embrace uncertainty instead of searching for perfect solutions</li><br /><li><b>Focus on new opportunities—not on your fear of failure</b></li><br /><li>Identify productive and unproductive worry</li><br /><li><b>Lose the sense of lack in your life, and live with a sense of a completeness</b></li><br /><li>Little known secrets to reduce your stress that most experts don’t know</li><br /><h2>As well as:</h2><br /><li><b>Experience the freedom to act how you feel without worrying about others' opinions</b></li><br /><li>Put an end to your feelings of unworthiness and insecurity</li><br /><li><b>Enjoy less arguments and jealousy in your relationships with others</b></li><br /><li>Live in the moment or live the power of now</li><br /><li><b>Experience the fulfilment you have been searching for<br /></b></li><br /><li>And much, much more<br /></li><br /><h2>The Bottom Line:</h2><br />Follow the information in this book and you will find a new level of peace, joy and happiness...today.<br /><br />New opportunities will open for you. And without fear, you’ll be able to take action on those opportunities.<br /><br />I take you by the hand and give you a step-by-step formula to take control of your thinking.<br /><br />You’ll learn how to keep only thoughts that serve you, and how to release old thought patterns that sabotage your success. <br /><br /><br /><h2>What are you waiting for?</h2><h2><br /></h2>

Buddhism isn t just about mindfulness and zen meditation. It encompasses many other practices and traditions including chanting mantras, reciting sutras, donating and bowing repentance. Bowing as a form of cultivation is not well known in the West. It is not often practiced in the Theravada tradition. However repentance is emphasized in Mahayana Buddhism, in texts such as the Avatamsaka Sutra. The goal is to bow to purify existing karmic offenses, thus clearing obstructions and paving the way for advancement on the spiritual path.<br />Emperor Wu of the Liang Dynasty (502 587) in China popularized bowing repentance as a dharma door. This Repentance Ritual was created under his patronage. Because of his enthusiasm in spreading religion, he has been compared to the great Indian ruler Ashoka (304 232 BCE) patron of Buddhism and the Roman emperor Constantine the Great (272 337), patron of Christianity.<br /><br />This particular repentance is designed to be practiced in a monastery with bhikshus (monks) leading those wishing to repent in a week-long ceremony. The repentance text is divided into ten chapters of forty sections. Each chapter starts with a verse of praise. The main part of each chapter contains sections of texts explaining the principles of repentance interspersed with bowing in full prostration (head, hands and knees to the ground) to various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Each chapter concludes with a poem.<br /><br />Bhikshuni Heng Jen of the Dharma Realm Buddhist Association started the translation of this text into English. Her goal was to introduce this popular East Asian practice to a Western audience. She unfortunately passed away before finishing her work. More than 15 years after her beginning, the Buddhist Text Translation Society has completed the first English translation of Repentance Ritual of the Emperor of Liang.
