Lots of new content has been added to fill those bibliographies, so check them out! In particular I’m excited to share with you:
- Ajahn Maha Bua’s classic sermons, A Life of Inner Quality
- Dr Tucker telling us about the evidence for reincarnation
- Rupert Gethin encouraging us to reassess how we read the mythology of the Buddhist Canon
- Ajahn Brahm talking about the Buddha, supernatural powers, and his time in Thailand in this fun sutta study class
- Ajahn Geoff writing about the unconditional purity of heart
- Ajahn Sujato defending both the bardo and comparative studies in this compelling paper
- Sir Edward Dyer rejoicing in his virtue
- Lawrence Mills’ translation of Snp 4.2
- SN 1.71, which answers the question of when the Buddha would approve of murder!
- This lovely sutta (SN 35.247) which compares cognitive dissonance to six animals tied together: either with or without the “post” of mindfulness
- And, with calamity crushing in from all sides these days, The Mountain Simile feels more relevant than ever.
And last, but certainly not least, I am very excited to share with you this profound interview with Professor Charles Hallisey which has been added to Buddhism and the Early Buddhist Texts.
I hope you enjoy this month’s arrivals and, as always, feel free to email me with any thoughts or questions you might have.
