The Path of Compassion and Wisdom… e-book review

Standard

Amazon.com: Modern Buddhism: The Path of Compassion and Wisdom – Volume 1 Sutra eBook: Geshe Kelsang Gyatso: Kindle Store.

Wow… I have always been drawn to Buddhism… the gentleness and reverence for all life… the teachings of  Buddhism, the ones I am aware of,  have always been one of the closest ones to my core being, even since I was young..  I have not, though, done an in-depth study on the subject.  Yet. That is about to change.

I have been doing some searching, soul-wise, and I suddenly came across this gem today, as if in answer to the questions of my  heart..  I have a Kindle reader (OH I LOVE my Kindle!!!) and while looking for something else, completely… I happened on this.  I felt immediately drawn to it and recognized that perhaps this is a place and a path that it’s time to investigate further, in this journey of my life.  It was one of those “things” that you just know is a nudge from Someone or Something.  When I saw that the author, an ordained monk (from the time he was 8!!) just wanted to make it freely available for everyone to read… I felt so humbled and appreciative, that this person would make these teachings available via free e-book, for anyone wanting to learn.

I sat down to read, and just the preface alone was enough to stop me in my tracks.  It touched my heart.. my soul… I just felt like I had come home, as I continued to read.  I reluctantly had to stop long enough to do the laundry for my dear family LOL and now I have to run to the store and get dog food for my dogs *sigh* and then I have to come back and … and.. life is just so busy.  But I cannot stop thinking about the words in this book and can’t wait to find a few quiet moments, to resume my thought processes and get into deep reading mode again.  The words have been with me all day.  I feel that I have come to a definitive spiritual mark on my path.


“Modern Buddhism, The Path of Compassion and Wisdom, Volume 1, Sutra” is written in a very humble, touching and loving spirit, which helps you see beyond the day to day material surface and focus on the quietly, infitely spiritual matters of the heart, soul and mind.  I would say the gentle wisdom this book has to offer is life-changing, for those who put it into practice. There are 2 more in the series. I can’t wait to delve into them. :)

If you have a Kindle.. and if you too are drawn to more spiritual things and have not quenched your thirst on the things you have found in this world so far… give this little book a try.  You have nothing to lose and so much peacefulness to gain! :)

Introduction and Encouragement This eBook Modern Buddhism – The Path of Compassion and Wisdom, in three volumes, is being distributed freely at the request of the author Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (the Kindle Store sets the minimum price at 99 cents and also additional taxes are added…

The Message from Water: Emoto Peace Project

Standard

This is just amazing and I had to tell you all!

The Emoto Peace Project is an organization that wants to bring peace, through books to children.  But they are not ordinary books!  They show the impact various things have on water crystals… such as music, words, thoughts, etc… and how it changes them from beautiful, to downright ugly, depending on what is said or listened to.  The kicker is this… it’s not just for the water in the rivers and oceans.  Our bodies are 70% water – children when born are 90%!  That is an awful lot of water that gets affected.  If water in the rivers is affected by these things… it logically follows that we are affected too, in ways we are not even aware of.  The book is aimed for children… probably because so many stick-in-the-mud adults just couldn’t (or wouldn’t) grasp it… LOL!  The message would  likely fail, left in our hands, at least for many of us.  But the kids are the future, so this makes sense.  It will stick with them.  I applaud the work of the Emoto Peace Project.

If you’d like to check out the book for yourself, you can view or download it here:  http://www.emotoproject.org/english/picturebook.html I viewed it and was just astounded… then I showed it to my daughter.  I think he is on to something here and I encourage you to give it a look.

The following message is from his site at http://www.emotoproject.org/english/home.html :

“The research of Dr. Masaru Emoto captures frozen water crystals in photographs that present a glimpse into the mysterious response of water to thoughts, words and pictures. As part of the United Nation’s International Decade for Action: Water for Life, Dr. Emoto wishes to share his discoveries about the responsive nature of water with children around the world. Beginning in 2006, “The Message of Water” children’s book , will be provided to all the children in the world at no cost within the decade. This effort is called the “Emoto Peace Project.”

Dr. Emoto and many of his readers believe that water holds the potential to create peace on earth. Dr. Emoto and many of his readers believe by holding the intention of peace towards water — by thinking, speaking and acting with the intention of peace toward water — water can and will bring peace to our bodies and to the world.

The Emoto Peace Project presents “The Message from Water” children’s book in hopes that this book will play a leading roll in bring peace to the world.

One man cannot change the world but one man can deliver the message to change the world. We believe it is “The Message from Water”.

We thank you very much for your support to Emoto Peace Project.”
