Tibetan Buddhism
Tibetan Buddhism derives from the confluence of Buddhism and yoga which started to arrive in Tibet from India briefly around the late eighth century and then more steadily from the thirteenth century onwards. Indian Buddhism around that time had incorporated both Hindu yogic and tantric practices along with the classical teachings of the historical Buddha who lived around 500 BC. It acknowledged that there were two paths to enlightenment ( complete transcendence of identification with the personal ego ). One path was that taught in the sutras according to the historical teachings. The heart of sutra practice was based on morality, concentration, and wisdom ( not identifying with the personal ego ). The other path, which has become the cornerstone of Tibetan variations, was tantric. This practice blended the sutra teachings with techniques adapted from Hindu systems of yoga and tantra. Tantric systems transform the basic human passions of desire and aversion for the purpose of spiritual development. Rather than denying such primal urges, tantra purifies them into wholesome and helpful forces. It is very much like trying to deal with a wild horse charging towards you. One way is denial: put up your hands and shout out, "stop, stop!" Probably you will be bowled over by the animal. Another, more clever, approach is to step aside and then jump on its back as it charges past you. In such a case, you have a chance to start coaxing it to move in certain directions, and over time you may be able to direct it into a stable. Truthfully, one needs some skill in both self-control and acceptance if one is to be successful with tantric work.

Advayavada Buddhism in a Nutshell

Advayavada Study Plan

relevant excerpts from well-known books
to miscellaneous webrings
Welcome to the website of the Advayavada Buddhism Information Center , the mouthpiece of the Advayavada Foundation. Have you increased your font size for easy reading? Advayavada Buddhism is a non-dual philosophy and non-comparative way of life derived from Nagarjuna's Madhyamaka, or philosophy of the Middle Way. Its most important tenet is that there is a fourth sign (or mark) of being implicit in the Buddha's teaching, namely that, expressed purely in terms of human perception and experience, reality is sequential and dynamic in the sense of ever becoming better than before. What human beings experience as good, right or beneficial, indeed as progress (pratipada, patipada), is, in fact, that which takes place in the otherwise indifferent direction that overall existence flows in of its own accord. To understand this tenet, one should first come to realize most deeply, for instance through meditation on the incontestable non-duality of the world, that not the human manifestation of life (i.e. its ongoing process of re-combination, mutation, concatenate multiplication and disintegration of the expended units, and its vicissitudes and perils, even possible extinction, self-inflicted or not) is the measure of things in space and time, but the whole of infinite interdependent reality itself, which, hardly affected, if at all, by the negligible impact of mankind's doings, will continue to become exactly as it, by definition, must.

The notes have been moved so that they come straight after the quote they belong to instead of at the bottom of the page, as there are no pages in HTML-documents. The many details about the publication have been moved to the back , whereas they were listed in the beginning in the origional edition. Numbers between brackets signify the page the information directly above was on in the printed edition of 1967. For clarity's sake I've added horizontal lines after each quote and source. - Editor Buddha's World]
THE too prevalent ignorance among even adult Sinhalese Buddhists of the ethical code of their religion heads me to issue this little compilation. Similar moral precepts exist by hundreds in the Buddhist Scriptures; where, also, all the present quotations will be found in the places indicated. They should be committed to memory and practised by parents and taught to their children, especially when the latter are being educated under anti-Buddhistic influences.
Orientalists and other impartial persons admit that no religion in the world contains a more sublime system of moral rules than Buddhism, but if we wish this to become known to Buddhist children, we adult Buddhists must take the task upon ourselves. Many a Buddhist boy has beet "converted " to Christianity, or otherwise brought to despise his ancestral religion, from ignorance of its merits.

An interview with Dr Tony Page.
Who We Are Sitemap Book Reviews The Lighter Side ... Movies Buddhism is world-famous for its philosophy of compassion towards all people. Yet what precisely do its scriptures teach on the subject of humanity's rightful relationship with the animal kingdom? Dr Tony Page recently wrote a book on that very subject calling it "Buddhism and Animals". Interview by Claudette Vaughan, August 2000. CLAUDETTE: How difficult was it to carry out research into Buddhist morality and the practice of flesh-eating? TONY: It was surprisingly easy. I have been a student of Buddhism for 20 years but have always been disturbed by the number of modern Buddhists who ate meat, as well as by the relative neglect of animal rights as an issue with Buddhist groups in the West. I have always understood that, given its strong principle of "ahimsa" or non-violence, Buddhism frowned upon meat-eating, since meat-eating inevitably meant doing violence to animals that were slaughtered for food. But I found that a lot of present day Buddhist teachers and practitioners were actually trying to justify meat-eating. Clearly, something was wrong. So I decided to see what the scriptural basis for meat-eating was. I resolved largely to by-pass what later commentators on Buddhism had said on the subject (many were meat-eaters) and go back to the original scriptures to see what the Buddha himself had stated. It is always best to go back to the source, as far as possible. And I was tremendously encouraged to see that there was a wealth of evidence showing that Buddha Shakyamundi was himself against the eating of meat and was in fact a strong advocate of vegetarianism and compassion towards animals. This formed the basis of my book.

Buddhism in Vietnam
This Home page is an attempt to synthesize some of the varied and fascinating history of Buddhist religion in Vietnam. It is designed to give insight and aid primarily to educators who are interested in teaching a secondary and post secondary group of students about one of the most important influences in world religion. Our approach is a basic one, to generally describe the practices and major differences in philosophy, as well as look at some of the impacts of the American conflict in Vietnam. We have come to the conclusion that if Buddhism and its culture in Vietnam is left out of curriculum when discussing the war, a serious element of the history is neglected. Additionally, we have endeavored to include other sources and perspectives in our source listings. This page is far from a complete one, but we hope that it addresses some of the general questions that educators and students have about the Buddhist side of the conflict. Hopefully, this is an adequate place to start your search!

Brief History of Buddhism
The origin of the Buddhist tradition can be traced back to the year 563 BCE, the birth of Siddhartha Gautama. He was the son of a wealthy land owner and destined to be a respected leader of his land. Siddhartha's birth was a mysterious one, he was placed inside of the womb of his mother as a white elephant and born out of her side ten months later. When Siddhartha was an infant, a wise scholar immediately noticed the 32 auspicious signs of an enlightened one. Siddhartha's father, fearful that he would lead the life of an ascetic , rather than a king, endeavored to protect his son from the painful realities of life. He kept Siddhartha confined to the grounds of his estate, far away from pain, old age, death and tragedy. On three occasions, though, Siddhartha managed to leave the confines of the estate and witnessed several scenes that changed the meaning of his existence. He saw an old man, a sick woman, and a corpse being burned during a Ghat ceremony. He was troubled by these images, but did not understand his calling until he saw a Jain ascetic begging for alms in the city square. It was then that he realized that there was meaning beyond physical existence. He gave up all of his worldly goods and left his family in search of

T HE TIBETAN BUDDHIST TRADITION is especially rich because the teachings of the Buddha were preserved in their entirety and elaborated upon over the centuries by meditators who took the teachings to heart and brought them to full fruition in their own mind streams. The Kagyu, or "practice" lineage , contributed greatly to this tradition through the attainment and teachings of its extraordinary practitioners, including Marpa Lotsawa, the great translator; Jetsun Milarepa, Tibet's greatest yogi; and continuing with the succession of seventeen Gyalwa Karmapas. This tradition continues unbroken to the present day, and the teachings of enlightened Kagyu masters are considered among the most precious jewels of spiritual insight and practical guidance in the world. The following topics are among the most important to any student interested in learning about Tibetan Buddhism. Each topic is linked to a brief summary, which includes links to excerpts of related teachings and questions and answers.

Pat Zukeran
For centuries, Buddhism has been the dominant religion of the Eastern world. With the rise of the Asian population in the United States, Buddhism has had a tremendous impact on this country as well. Presently, there are an estimated 300 million Buddhists in the world and 500 thousand in the United States. It remains the dominant religion in the state of Hawaii, and many prominent Americans have accepted this religion, including the former governor of California, Jerry Brown, Tina Turner, Phil Jackson (coach of the Los Angeles Lakers), Richard Gere, and Steven Seagal. The Dalai Lama has become a prominent spiritual figure for many throughout the world.
The Origin of Buddhism
Buddhism began as an offspring of Hinduism in the country of India. The founder was Siddhartha Gautama. It is not easy to give an accurate historical account of the life of Gautama since no biography was recorded until five hundred years after his death. Today, much of his life story is clouded in myths and legends which arose after his death. Even the best historians of our day have several differentand even contradictoryaccounts of Gautama's life. Siddhartha Gautama was born in approximately 560 B.C. in northern India. His father, Suddhodana, was the ruler over a district near the Himalayas which is today the country of Nepal. Suddhodana sheltered his son from the outside world and confined him to the palace where he surrounded Gautama with pleasures and wealth.

What the Buddha Taught Awakening the Mind: Basic Buddhist Meditations The Art of Happiness
What is the sound of one hand clapping? If a tree falls in the forest, but no one is around, does it make a sound? And why are Buddhists so obsessed with the sound of stuff? Deep questions like these could be a part of your life, too, as you join an estimated 500 million other Buddhists around the world in the quest for spiritual enlightenment. Neophytes on the road to wisdom and weary old travelers alike will benefit from a review of the basics, so assume the lotus position , and read on, grasshopper. One of the nice things about Buddhism is that it generally doesn't take itself too seriously. Buddhists are a light-hearted , peace-loving group who haven't gone around burning astronomers, drowning weird old women, or drinking Kool-Aid (at least, not in the last 2000 years). Our point: understand that our use of humor in this SYW is not intended to insult anyone. If you are insulted, chug yourself a glass of Kool-Aid and get over it. There's a story told in Buddhist lore about a follower of another religion who went to the Buddha to try to convert him. The man was so impressed by the words of the Buddha that he decided to become a follower of the Buddha. Buddha said to him, "Make a proper investigation first." Notice that the Buddha did not proselytize aggressively, but suggested that people should take it or leave it according to their own personal assessment

Karma and reincarnation as Buddhists generally look at this subject, an article by Hans Wolfgang Schuman.
Buddhism, an outline of its teachings and schools, p. 52-54
Karma in Buddhism
Hans Wolfgang Schuman
Our present existence is the result of deeds performed by ourselves in previous existences. The body is an 'old deed'(S 12, 37, 3 II p. 65 - [1]), and to suffer means to endure kammic [karmic] effects, that is to lie on the bed one has made. Our future forms of existence are determined by our actions of today; we are now laying the foundations of our future 'fate'. Kamma [karma] in the view of Hinayana is a neutral law that admits no exception or interference, but of which, by acting accordingly, man can avail himself in order to obtain the rebirth wished for. No need to mention that even the happiest rebirth is not yet liberation. It would be quite wrong to interpret the doctrine of kamma along deterministic lines. Only the quality, that is the social surrounding, the physical appearance and the mental abilities of a person are fixed by the deeds of his previous existences, but in no way his actions. Without cognising free will as a philosophical problem, Gotama takes it for granted that the innate character of each being leaves him the freedom to decide about the actions which determine his future. Wholesome deeds help man to achieve better rebirth and thus bring him nearer to salvation; they do not, however, lead straight to liberation, to riddance of all rebirth. Deeds are something finite and cannot bear fruit beyond the finite. Even the best obtainable form of existence still lies within the cycle of rebirths. Nevertheless, Gotama does not disapprove of action in general:
