My new book The Four Profound Thoughts Which Turn the Mind Towards Amida Dharma (free online edition)

tentative cover - it will be improved when
I raise enough funds for the printed edition
Dear Dharma friends,

I am happy to share with you the free online edition of my new book, The Four Profound Thoughts Which Turn the Mind Towards Amida Dharma. This is the improved and proofreaded version of the teaching series you probably saw on this website.

About the book (from the Foreword):
The Four Profound Thoughts are basic teachings, something like a preliminary to any Buddhist path or practice. It has the effect of turning the mind towards the Buddha Dharma and should be a constant companion no matter if one is a beginner or an older follower. Sometimes they are reffered to as the Four Contemplations, the Four Understandings or the Four Reminders. Because in this book I explain them in the context of the Pure Land Dharma Gate of Jodo Shinshu (Amida Dharma), I decided to call them the Four Profound Thoughts which Turn the Mind Towards the  Amida Dharma. These Profound Thoughts are:

Here is a fragment from the Preface, so that you can make an idea of what this book is all about:

”This book is a long term project which has begun a few years ago as a reaction to the appearance in the international sangha of some divergent views which threaten to destroy the chances of many people to listen to the genuine Amida Dharma. It is also a work in progress, and the reader can expect that I will come back again, sooner or later, with new editions and improvements.

Printed version of my last book - JODO SHINSHU BUDDHIST TEACHINGS


Finaly the printed version of my last book, JODO SHINSHU BUDDHIST TEACHINGS is ready for sale!
You can buy it from this link where you may also find other books for sale:
BUDDHIST BOOKS FOR SALE
http://amida-ji-retreat-temple-romania.blogspot.com/2010/12/buddhist-books-for-sale.html

The book contains easy to understand explanations of the major doctrines of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, questions and answers, and corrections of some modern divergences from the Dharma.

                                                                                  ***


Jodo Shinshu does not give moral speeches and it doesn’t contain difficult practices. While other Buddhist methods talk about the ideal of Buddhahood and the possibility to attain it in this life, Jodo Shinshu starts with the sense of failure.

It is a simple path for ordinary people like you and me, lost from morning till evening in the fight for daily survival, filled with illusions and attachments to which we see neither the beginning nor the end. Jodo Shinshu is not a path for saints, but for losers, for those who cannot attain by themselves anything stable in the spiritual life.

Not the promise of purification, but of salvation as we are is the essence of Jodo Shinshu. Nothing special, no state of mind to be attained or developed.  Only faith in the Infinite Compassion of Amida Buddha.
