A key to Mahayana and Buddhist Trantric Meditation 3. Mai 2010
Von Leo Rivers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you are a Mahayana Buddhist who is practicing yoga in the form of body postures, breath control, or sitting in meditation to deepen your tranquility of mind and clarify your insight into Wisdom - you are on a path that leads to this foundational Yogacara (Master of Yoga) text, which has been translated three times - once by Thomas Cleary as [a course in] Buddhist Yoga and John Powers as The Wisdom of the Buddha, and finally by Keenan in The Scripture on the Explication of Underlaying Meaning.

The Cleary text is aimed at being very simple and straightforward, an effort to make it easy to assimilate text.

The Power's book is lovely having facing pages of Tibetan and English text and a full set of notes. In a review of John Powers book that you can find on the Internet by Tom Graham you can get the background picture of just how frustrating it is that a text this important as a background to both the Yogacara School and the view of the Tantras is almost completely overlooked by American Buddhists.

Both the Powers and the newest, excellent, translation by Keenan offer a both a crystal clarity of translation and insightful footnotes that make for a compact commentary on the text all by themselves.

Key to Coordinating the available english translations:

I. The Samdhinirmochana Sutra as translated from The Tibetan of the sDe-dge bKa'-`gur:
1.) Powers, John. Wisdom of Buddha: The Samdhinirmochana Sutra. Dharma Publishing, 1995

Yoga Means Union 15. April 2009
Von Bryan McGilly - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is meant as a precursor to meditation, to be read and re-read, pondered upon and read again.

Sitting on a cushion and meditating may be good to relieve stress, however true insight comes effortlessly after first perfecting ones intellectual understanding of ultimate truth and reality.

Only after this perfection, which is clearly outlined in this sutra, will meditation yield results beyond mere mystic states. As stated above, the sanskrit word "yoga" means union, and this text is a translation of the Buddha's teaching which outlines the perfection of intellectually understanding the functioning of Mind and consciousness and the right frame in which to apprehend ultimate truth (ones union with ultimate truth is then free to follow).

Liberation is one thing, and you may gain it in meditation, but only after perfecting your intellectual understanding can reason come to its conclusion and meditation yield concentration and contemplative results effortlessly.

A rare scripture 1. Oktober 2012
Von M. Gonzales - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I looked for this scripture for years after finding an excerpt of it in a Chan text. Truly amazing. I recommend this and Ed Conze's Perfect Wisdom (translations of short Prajnaparamita texts)

Not a quick read nor should it be but an excellent translation of this very difficult text. Understanding in the conventional way will not work. You have to make meditation the King.

Before the OM was what? 30. August 2005
Von sihlok - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Yes. The previous reviewer is correct: this is the deepest of the deep of the Buddha's cosmic sutras. Don't waste your money on this book if you are not a meditating Buddhist.If you've found the cushion, however, taste this! This is a book for Bodhisattvas to bathe in.
