The Dhammapada. This is the Buddhist Dhammapada which are the main sayings and wisdom of the Buddha. Buddha lived around 600 B.C.E. in India. He was raised as a prince. After the birth of his first son, he left his family and began a quest to seek out the source of suffering in the world. He tried all methods of meditation and is said to have fasted to the point of eating only one grain of rice or bean per day. This left him near exhaustion and no closer to the riddle of suffering. He sat down under a Bo tree and ate something and rested. He then began to see visions and became as he said, "awakened." He then went and found the 6 ascetics with whom he had been traveling and taught them what he had learned. Then for the next forty years taught his message: The eight-fold path. Toward the end of his life when his religion began to be established there was an attempt on his life. He survived and continued to teach. The bureaucratic power which always manifest around great religious figures had already begun to take over the message. When he was 82 he became ill while traveling from village to village. He sat down under a tree and sent out word that he was dying. Many came to see him. When he saw everyone, he went into mediation and left his body. Within a month after his death, his followers gathered together and wrote down his most famous sayings and teachings. These have come down to us as the Dhammapada which contains 423 verses. What I have done is not to interpret the original pictographs which have been most surely manipulated over the millennium, but have taken several translations and then put a peace and harmony WorldPeace orientation on them. What has manifested is more of an interpretation than a literal translation. This is what the saying of Buddha, as handed down over the millennia say to me. I have no intention to argue over the literal translation of what the Buddha said. The thrust of his message is contained within my words. Neither am I trying to convert anyone to my way of thinking. I am only presenting what I have personally found after years of studying the sayings of the Buddha. My objective is to increase the peace on earth. My goal is to find like minded souls to further explore these thoughts and to help manifest WorldPeace. THE FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS The Four Noble Truths 1. Every human being to some extent lives in confusion (sorrow) in the manifestations of the Infinite and this reality. 2. The main cause of confusion is self centered desire because we think that we are not at one with all of humanity. 3. We can put an end to our confusion in the manifestations of the Infinite and this reality and begin to live in peace and harmony by overcoming our self centered desire. 4. Confusion can be put to an end by following the peaceful and harmonious eight fold path which consists of: 1. Peaceful and harmonious Knowledge. Know in our minds that all things change. 2. Peaceful and harmonious Aspiration. Determination to live in the peace and harmony of the oneness of the Infinite and humanity by refusing to make distinctions that are the source of confusion in the manifestations of this reality. 3. Peaceful and harmonious Speech. Always speak the truth and be charitable in speaking to others. 4. Peaceful and harmonious behavior a. Do not kill. b. Do not steal. c. Do not lie. d. Practice sexual restraint e. Avoid alcohol and drugs 5. Peaceful and harmonious livelihood. Pursue occupations that promote peace and harmony and uplift humanity as opposed to those that increase confusion within humanity. 6. Peaceful and harmonious Effort. Remain centered in the Oneness of the Infinite. 7. Peaceful and harmonious Attention. Remaining moment to moment attentive to the oneness of the Infinite. 8. Peaceful and harmonious Meditation to train the mind.

If the Buddha appears in this hook as a man close to us, it is partly due to recounting such difficulties.'' --from the author's afterword

This classic anthology from the Pali Canon charts the entire course of spiritual development as prescribed in the most ancient Buddhist texts. Drawing upon the Buddha's own words from the Sutta Pitaka, the compiler has arranged them in accordance with two overlapping schemes of practice: the threefold training in virtue, concentration, and wisdom, and the seven stages of purification. The long chapter on concentration provides sutta sources for all the forty classical subjects of meditation, while the chapter on wisdom cites texts relating to the development of insight. The result is a comprehensive meditation manual composed almost entirely from the Buddha's discourses, illuminated by the author's own brief explanations.

Among the many religion and beliefs, Buddhism is one of the most popular. Buddhism is a religion or spiritual belief most common in places such as China, Tibet, Thailand, Korea, Laos, Japan, and many other countries although it is said to have been inspired and a little similar with the Indian religion, Hinduism. Buddhism was taught to be founded and started by Siddhartha Gautama, most popularly known as Buddha because it was his teachings that are mostly believed and practiced in Buddhism. It was believed that Buddhism started when during a meditation under the Bodhi tree, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha or what is commonly known as the Enlightened One.

As the category of women’s spirituality continues to grow, The Buddha’s Wife offers to a broad audience for the first time the intimate and profound story of Princess Yasodhara, the wife Buddha left behind, and her alternative journey to spiritual enlightenment. What do we know of the wife and child the Buddha abandoned when he went off to seek his enlightenment? The Buddha’s Wife brings this rarely told story to the forefront, offering a nuanced portrait of this compelling and compassionate figure while also examining the practical applications her teachings have on our modern lives. Princess Yasodhara’s journey is one full of loss, grief, and suffering. But through it, she discovered her own enlightenment within the deep bonds of community and “ordinary” relationships. While traditional Buddhism emphasizes solitary meditation, Yasodhara’s experience speaks of “The Path of Right Relation,” of achieving awareness not alone but together with others. The Buddha’s Wife is comprised of two parts: the first part is a historical narrative of Yasodhara’s fascinating story, and the second part is a “how-to” reader’s companion filled with life lessons, practices, and reflections for the modern seeker. Her story provides a relational path, one which speaks directly to our everyday lives and offers a doorway to profound spiritual maturation, awakening, and wisdom beyond the solitary, heroic journey.
