A Beginners Guide to Loving-kindness By Bhante Vimalaramsi -Read by Amazon Polly TTS

A Beginners Guide to Loving-kindness By Bhante Vimalaramsi -Read by Amazon Polly TTS

October 10, 2020

In this booklet are the instructions for Loving-kindness Meditation (Metta) and the Practice of the Brahma Viharas which is based on the earliest Buddhist suttas, and if practiced correctly, will lead you to the supreme goal of Nibbana — in this very life.

This booklet gives easy to follow instructions for a daily practice. Just 30 minutes a day gets you on a path to a deep experience of the truth. A month or two can even yield your first jhana experience because of the special "relax" step that is added for eliminating hindrances.

For over 40 years Bhante Vimalaramsi researched and practiced many methods without finding any real satisfaction. He went back to the earliest Buddhist teachings. He found what he was seeking.

Bhante's method of “The 6Rs", based on Right Effort, is the key to the cessation of craving and the elimination of ignorance.

Bhante Vimalaramsi has been a monk since 1986 and practiced with many of the major Buddhist teachers in Asia. He now teaches all over the world and is the abbot of the Dhamma Sukha Meditation Center near St. Louis, Mo, USA.

“The Path to Nibbana” by David C Johnson -Updated: now read by Amazon AI Text to Speech

“The Path to Nibbana” by David C Johnson -Updated: now read by Amazon AI Text to Speech

October 7, 2020

The Path to Nibbana" is read by a text to speech voice by Amazon Web Services Polly AI. Just re-recorded

What is Nibbana? The experience and how to achieve it is in this book. Awakening actually is possible! This new book definitely says yes, but only if you add back in the step that is left out of other methods. And only if you follow the method laid out by the Buddha in his earliest teachings. Nibbana can and does happen with practice - and in this book you will be shown the step by step progression through the eight aware jhanas (levels of understanding) to the final cessation and the appearing of the unconditioned (Nibbana); and the incredible joy that arises afterward. It will give you the instructions on how to practice - even at home at your own pace.

New Edition with added chapter that dives deep into the Jhanas. " "Wow! Got your book. It is a major contribution. I already have used numerous quotes as references for my PhD thesis. I think it will really turn some heads around and help people immensely with their practice." M.J., VT

"Beautifully written like one word flows into another ;written with such clarity..." from Amzn. review.

This is a complete meditation handbook with all the instructions to achieve the goal and all of the levels of knowledge along the way. And now includes full text of "A Guide to Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation (TWIM)" and the full text of "A Guide to Forgiveness Meditation."

You will learn a different definition for Mindfulness that totally changes how you practice; and about a step in the text that has been left out of contemporary practices that is the key to the deepest levels of tranquility.

Learn the basics of Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation (TWIM) which is really the practice of Loving-kindness and the Brahmaviharas from the earliest Buddhist texts: The Majjhima Nikaya and the Samyutta Nikaya. This book will guide you from the beginning stages to the highest attainments laid out clearly and concisely. Many previous students’ experiences have been compiled and researched to create the basis for this book.

Additionally, other popular methods are compared here against the suttas to see if they match the Buddha's teachings and lead you to the enlightenment.

David Johnson wrote this book based on his insights as a senior student under Bhante Vimalaramsi, a 30-year monk living in the forests of Missouri. He came from a career in Silicon Valley to learn and study TWIM for the past seven years at the Dhamma Sukha Meditation Center near St. Louis. He currently teaches Online Retreats and authored “A Guide to Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation” along with Bhante, which is the detailed beginning instructions for TWIM Loving-kindness practice.
