Just Seeing

By Cynthia Thatcher

In eloquent, expressive language this book explores in depth the Buddha's significant teaching, "When seeing, just see; when hearing, just hear," as it applies to the practice of insight meditation as taught by Mahasi Sayadaw. Along the way, the book touches on the two kinds of reality-ultimate and conventional-expounded in the Abhidhamma. The author explains these two realities through the example of a pointillist painting of Seurat that can be viewed in two ways. In addition, there are meditation instructions for beginners, an appendix on the perceptual process as described in Buddhist metaphysics, and a crossword puzzle of Pali terms.

The Magic of the Mind

By Bhikkhu Nyanananda

The philosophically and psychologically important Kalakarama Sutta brings out some striking features of the epistemology of early Buddhism.

As a prologue and as a framework for discussion of his exposition of the discourse, the author gives the simile of the “magic-show” to show the illusory nature of consciousness in the context of doctrinal categories such as the five aggregates. Throughout the exposition similes and analogies, both canonical and modern, and quotations from other discourses are given to illustrate and explain the relevant facts.

The Seven Stages of Purification

By M. Nyanarama Thera

This is a book born of wide and deep meditative experience, a guide to the progressive stages of Buddhist meditation for those who have taken up the practice in full earnestness. The seven stages of purification provide the framework for the disciple’s gradual progress from the cultivation of virtue up to the attainment of the final goal. Integral to the higher stages of purification are the nine types of insight-knowledge by which the disciple penetrates to the real nature of phenomena. The present book treats the stages of purification and the insight-knowledges not only with great erudition, but with the clarifying light of actual meditative experience.

The Venerable Matara Sri Nyanarama Mahathera (1901–92), late abbot and meditation master of the Mitirigala Nissarana Vanaya monastery, was one of the most respected meditation masters of present-day Sri Lanka.

Thinker’s Notebook

By Nyanamoli Thera, collected, edited, and introduced by Nyanaponika Thera

Collected posthumous papers of the English monk-scholar Nyanamoli, who counts as one of the foremost translators of Pali Buddhist texts into English. Besides being a gifted translator Nyanamoli was also a gifted thinker, philosopher, and poet. Besides some longer essays, most of the notes are only one paragraph long and were written in the 1950s as a Buddhist monk. The notes and essays deal with profound topics such as ontology, metaphysics, nuclear physics, logic, but there is also humour, irony, sarcasm and light poetry. Four essays were earlier published in a Wheel Publication no. 52/53, Pathways of Buddhist Thought.

The Word of the Buddha

An Outline of the Buddha's Teaching in the Words of the Pali Canon

By Nyanatiloka Mahathera

This superb little work by the eminent German scholar-monk is probably the best compact sourcebook in English on the Buddha's basic teachings, all expounded in his own words. Translated into a dozen languages, it is now in its 16th English edition, yet still reads as fresh, clear, and vigorous as if it were just written.
