When knowing becomes love – Meditation as Contemplative Inquiry

By Arthur Zajonc.

211 Pagina’s | 2009 | Paperback | Lindisfarne Books, Massachusetts | ISBN: 9781584200628.

When we turn to meditation, we turn toward renewal, peace, and insight. We may take up contemplative practice as a means of tapping into the abundant resources of the mind and heart that bring serenity, but the meditative journey leads further, to the place where wisdom and love unite.

In Meditation as Contemplative Inquiry, Arthur Zajonc offers an overview of the meditative life, weaving practical instruction together with the guidance and inspiration of the world’s great teachers, from Rudolf Steiner to Rumi, and from Goethe to the sages of Asia. Zajonc reminds us that an ethic of humility grounds all practice, and that care of the soul is the basis for sound spiritual reflection and understanding. He describes each stage of the path and includes many recommended practices.

This book is the fruit of many years of personal practice and teaching. Arthur Zajonc developed his orientation toward meditation through working with hundreds of university students and professors, as well as with contemplative groups in the U.S., Europe, and Australia.

”Arthur Zajonc is one of our best guides in the new art of traversing the narrowing gulf between science, consciousness, and social change. This beautiful book embodies the best in his writing. ”
— Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline

”A glistening gem of a book.”
— Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Coming to Our Senses

Vier levensvrienden – Geleide meditatieoefeningen voor vriendelijkheid, compassie, medevreugde en gelijkmoedigheid

Door Frits Koster, Erik van den Brink & Jetty Heynekamp.

57 Pagina’s | 2013 | Paperback |Milinda Uitgevers bv, Rotterdam | ISBN: 9789056703042. Boek + 2 CD’s Speelduur: 160 minuten

Vier levensvrienden biedt een uitnodiging om met vriendelijke, compassievolle, vreugdevolle of onpartijdige ogen te kunnen kijken naar onszelf en naar de wereld.

Maak kennis met de vier verheven gemoedstoestanden (brahmaviharā’s): vriendelijkheid, compassie, (mede)vreugde en gelijkmoedigheid. Deze vier ego-overstijgende levensvrienden bestrijken ieder een ander terrein. Spreek je van een welzijnsthermometer dan richt compassie zich op het gebied onder nul graden. Vriendelijkheid richt zich op het gebied boven nul, terwijl medevreugde zich specifiek right op de extra aangename en warme temperatuur. Gelijkmoedigheid dient als een beschermend omhulsel en bij extreme temperaturen.

Net zoals we onze lichamelijke conditie, concentratie of mindfulness (open aandacht) kunnen trainen en ontwikkelen, zo kunnen we de vier levensvrienden ontwikkelen door regelmatige beoefening. Het bijzondere hiervan is dat het religie-overstijgend is; ieder mens kan zijn of haar leven verrijken met de kracht van mildheid.

Op de bijgevoegde cd’s staan geleide meditatieoefeningen om de vier verheven gemoedstoestanden tot ontwikkeling te brengen. Het boekje dient als ondersteuning, biedt achtergrondinformatie en beschrijft de valkuilen die kunnen optreden.

Meditation as a Way of Life – Philosophy and Practice rooted in the Teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda

By Alan L. Pritz.

261 Pages | First Quest Edition 2014 | Softcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, India | ISBN: 9780835609289.

Meditation as a Way of Life – an informal sequel to Pritz’ Pocket Guide to Meditation – renders acquired knowledge in a down-to-earth way to help people create a lifestyle grounded in spiritual discipline and a meditative practice, that is effective, regardless of religious affiliation and applicable to all faiths. The methods involved and principles governing them are presented through the lens of the author’s perspective, which is based on teachings of the modern spiritual master Paramahansa Yogananda.

For those unfamiliair with meditation, it is not, as some expressions would depict it, a method to enhance health, boost creativity or reduce stress. Those may be by-product of meditation, but they are not what meditation is about. Meditation is founded on a worldview that ascribes to life a profound spiritual purpose and chronicles the Soul’s descent from Spirit into embodiment and its ultimate goal of reuniting with the Divine.

From Chapter 12 – ‘Meditation – Absorption in Spirit’: (p. 202):

” Before the earth in space was spun
Beneath the heaven’s feet,
There was a mighty spirit, One,
Calm, wondrous, complete!

Changeless, yet moving; from its womb
All things came into birth;
This is the mystic bride and groom,
Maker of heaven and earth.

Something there is, whose veiled creation was
Before the earth or sky began to be;
So silent, so aloof, and so alone.

It changes not, nor fails, but touches all:
Conceive it as the Mother of the world.
I do not know its name;
A name for its is ‘Way’:

The Way begot one,
and the one, two,
and the two begot three
And three, all else . . . “

Here are 366 Meditations – one for each day of the year. Each from the heart of a spiritually oriented philosopher, from Plato to Emerson to Sri Aurobindo to a host of theosophical students and scholars. Inside of this miniature Quest book is a complete philosophy for living: quiet, short, engaging thoughts, each alive with the spirit of being. In truth, this is not a book to be studied. It is a book to be carried in the pocket or purse. It is a book to be treasured.

From page 41:

” 25.  A doctrine of ‘Truth’, presenting itself without proof on the bare value of its own nobility, is as disturbing a factor to the majority of men as would be the stranger without name or country. We are afraid of it; it is to us an invasion from an unknown world. And such it is; it is an invasion from another world, from the only real world, the world of Reality . . .

The Brightened Mind – A Simple Guide to Buddhist Meditation

107 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2011

Helps You Tap Into An Infinite Reservoir of Clarity and Calm

Modern times have created a siege of chaos. Struggling economy, political turmoil, media bombardment and a general culture of isolation all contribute to this unrest. Buddhist author Ajahn Sumano Bhikkhu presents a simple path to freedom from such chaos in The Brightened Mind.

“Sumano Bikkhu’s The Brightened Mind is a most precious little jewel, introducing the spiritual armchair traveler to the wonders of the Universal Mind as taught in the Buddhist meditative tradition.” — Glenn Mullin, author of Female Buddhas, The Fourteen Dalai Lamas, and Living in the Face of Death.

auteur: Sumano Bhikku, A.
ISBN: 9780835608992
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Sumano speaks to the modern seeker from a unique perspective, as a former law school graduate and real estate professional in Chicago. He abandoned his comfortable American lifestyle for the begging bowl and simple cave home of an ordained Buddhist monk in the tradition of the Thai forest meditation masters. Now a spiritual teacher in Tibet, Sumano walks the reader through the workings of the mind and how thought processes often affect our experiences. He shows how to quiet the mind, turning off the “rolling documentary of your past and future” to experience the freedom of quiet focus. Through easy-to-follow guided meditations called “mind trainings” or “mind-fitness techniques,” he teaches the reader how to think productively tapping into the ultimate source of wealth, our own divine consciousness. Sumano posits that we all have within us this abundance simply waiting to be utilized. Using these practices readers will find themselves free from the body and the mundane, the I-ego mind. From this place of insight life’s challenges can be navigated with much less stress and with much more hope. As Sumano says, “In order to progress and prosper in peace, we must respond to the challenges of our times not from fear and anxiety but from a place of circumspection —from a brightened mind.”

Buddhist Meditation

172 pages | Second edition, 2nd reprint 2007 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

This book consists of a series of talks given to a group of international students at The School of Wisdom at the Theosophical Society headquarters in Chennai, India.

Venerable Professor Samdhong Rinpoche was born in Eastern Tibet and arrived in India with His Holiness The Dalai Lama. He is a distinguished Tibetan scholar, the first democratically elected Prime Minister of the Tibetan Government in exile and the former Director of the Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies in Sarnath, Vārānasi.

Does every person who is in training for meditation needs a guru?

A. That depends on the person. According to Buddhist training methods, an absolute beginner cannot do without an instructor; every Śrāvaka needs a guru. But for how long the instructor is needed depends entirely on the progress of the individual pupil. In a few cases, a guru is not needed. A Pratyeka Buddha in the becoming does not need a guru. “

The Art of Meditation – (Adyar Pamphlet New Series No. 5)

By Marie Poutz.

21 Pages| A talk delivered at ‘Olcott’, Wheaton, Illinois, in the Summer of 1935; first published in 2003 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170594413.

When you succeed in building a bridge at first in meditation between the personal self and the world of intuïtion – where brotherhood, joy and beauty are facts – and then gradually spreading it all through your daily life, you will no longer ask whether you’re making progress. You will simply have forgotten all about yourself! And in precisely this forgetting lies your success and achievement . . .

From page 1 & 2:

” People are apt to think that meditation to be successful must be accompanied by some astral phenomenon – seeing forms, colours, hearing sounds, bells, and so forth. Even some purely physical sensations – a shiver along the spine, a tingling in the finger tips – those examples have come to me, and they are hailed with delight and proclaimed on the housetops, to the dismay of those who have had no such experiences, and therefore consider their own meditations as failures. Surely, such trivial and often foolish manifestations do not constitute a succesful meditation. They are rather an obstacle, because they draw the attention away from the inner realities. It is better to see and hear nothing on the psychic planes, so that the consciousness, wholly turned inwards, may reach communion with the Divine and gradually unify the personal self with the Ego consciousness. ”

“This is the kind of handbook I wish I had in those early days. My gift to you … this is the start of your spiritual journey, of discovering within the sage that you really are. Are you ready?” — Lama Willa Miller

Everyday Dharma: Seven Weeks to Finding the Buddha in You offers a simple guide to achieving real and lasting personal transformation. This book appeals to any who are open to Buddhism in the broader context, whether one subscribes to a specific religious view or to no view at all. Dharma, a Buddhist term for the actions taken to find one’s inner-wisdom, is really a universal concept. “If wisdom were a destination,” Lama Willa says, “Dharma—played out in our thoughts and actions—is the path leading there.” By applying Dharma’s essential truths to the modern world, Everyday Dharma teaches you how to do the spiritual, emotional and psychological work in order to bring about day-to-day well-being. Lama Willa believes the art of being happy is the true enlightenment available to us all!

Questions and Answers

Door Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986).

107 Pages | Published in 1982 | Softcover | Krishnamurti Foundation India, Chennai | ISBN: 8187326247.

How does one live sanely in this world of violence and corruption? Is it possible for man to find everlasting security? How does one deal with one’s anger, frustration, sexual desire, loneliness and fear? Is a human being a mere thinking machine or is there something beyond thought? What is true meditation. What is the place of religion in the modern world? Krishnamurti’s answers to these and many other questions put to him by his audiences form the contents of this book. Krishnamurti ‘answers’ are not readymade solutions; rather, they are meant to provoke more questions in the mind of the listener so that, out of that questioning and scepticism, he goes from the narrow field of problem-solving to the wider expanse of self-knowledge.

From Chapter 23 – ‘Enlightenment’ (p. 48 & 49):

” The Eastern and Western gurus all quote the old saying: ‘You must be a light unto yourself’. It is an ancient and very famous saying in India. And they repeat it, adding, ‘You cannot be a light unto yourself unless I give it to you’. People are so gullible; that is what is wrong. They all want something – the young and the old. For the young the world is too cruel, for them what the older generations have made of the world is too appalling. […] Equally, the older generation are in the same position, only they express it with more sophistication. They are the same, the young and the old all over the world. But nobody can give guidance, can give light, to another. Only yourself can do that; but you have to stand completely alone. That is what is frightening for the young and the old. If you belong to anything, follow anybody, you are already entering into corruption. Understand that very deeply, with tears in your eyes: when there is no guru, no teacher and no disciple, there is only you as a human being living in this world – the world, the society, which you have created. And if you do not do something for yourself, society is not going to help you. On the contrary, society wants you to be what you are. Do not belong to anything, not to any institution or organization; do not follow anybody; be not a disciple of anybody. You are human being living in this terrible world; a human being who is the world and the world is you. You have to live there, understand it, and go beyond yourself. “

The Royal Road – A Manual of Kabalistic Meditations on the Tarot

By Stephan A. Hoeller

119 Pages | First edition 1975, third printing 1988 | Softcover | Quest Books, USA | ISBN: 0835604659.

Integrating the two diciplines to heighten the experience of meditation.

Those, who are into Tarot and those, who are interested or involved in meditation will be attracted by this new book by the director of the Sophia Gnostic Center of Los Angeles. Designed to lead the reader easily into a meditative state, it includes 22 illustrations of the Major Arcana each juxtaposed with an appropriate meditation.

As the reader relates the cards to the paths that lead upward on the Kabalistic Tree of Life, heightened spiritual consiousness can result. The author has addressed The Royal Road to the general reader interested in the values in both the Tarot deck and in the Kabalistic interpretation of the Hebrew Scriptures.

From Chapter 2: ‘Tarot and Kabalah (p.13):

” Can the Tarot predict the future? Perhaps! The true answer, however can not be given so simply. If we recognize that, even though unconsciously, we are constantly shaping our future, it then follows that by establishing a magical contact with our unconscious we can learn much about our future and, what is more, we can influence and alter our future, thereby becoming, at least to a degree, masters of our own destiny. Time is a continuum, not a division, and its mysteries are often pierced when we recognize the proper significance of material clues to spiritual processes. Tarot divination is merely one particular application of these principles to the concerns of daily living. “

The Secret of the Golden Flower – A Chinese Book of Life

Translated and explained by Prof. Richard Wilhelm (1873 – 1930), with a commentary by Dr. Carl Gustav Jung (1875 – 1961).

149 Pages | First published in 1931; new, revised & augemented edition, 1962 | Soft cover | Harcourt Brace & Company, USA | ISBN: 9780156799805.

The Secret of the Golden Flower, the Treatise that forms the central part of this book, was discovered by Professor Wilhelm, who recognized it as essentially a practical guide to the integration of the personality. His German translation, published in the autumn of 1929 shortly before his death, was immediately hailed by Jung as a link between the insights of the East and his own psychological research, a relationship explored by the great analytical psychologist in a brilliant and significant commentary.

This edition also contains part of another Chinese meditation text, the Hui Ming Ching or The Book of Consciousness and Life, and is illustrated with numerous plates and drawings.

A quotation about ‘detachment’ (p. 122):

” A halo of light surrounds the world of the law.

We forget one another, quiet and pure, altogether powerful and empty.

The emptiness is irradiated by the light of the heart of heaven.

The water of the sea is smooth and mirrors the moon its surface.

The clouds disappear in blue space; the mountains shine clear.

Consciousness reverts to contemplation; the moondisk rests alone. “

The Stanzas of Dzyan are the skeleton as it were, around and attached to which the massive body of H.P. Blavatsky’s great work The Secret Doctrine, is built up. The Book of Dzyan – from the Sanskrit dhyāna (mystic meditation) – is the first Volume of the Commentaries [in fourteen volumes] upon the seven secret folios of Kiu-ti, and a glossary of the public works of the same name. Thirty-five volumes of ‘Kiu-ti’ for exoteric purposes and the use of the laymen may be found in the possession of the Tibetan Gelugpa lamas, in the library of any monastery. Yet not in the possession of European libraries being highly unknown to our philologists.

From page 231:

” The present is the child of the past; the future the begotten of the present; and yet, o present moment! Knowest Thou not that Thou hast no parent! Nor canst Thou have a child; that Thou art ever begetting but Thyself? Before Thou has ever began to say ‘I am the progeny of the departed moment, the child of the past, Thou has become that past itself. Before Thou utterest the last syllable, behold! Thou art no more the present but verily that future. Thus are the past, the present, and the future, the ever-living trinity in ONE – The great illusion of the Absolute is . . . “

Compiled by Katherine A. Beechey

175 Pages |1949, Second edition, fourth reprint 2015 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN 9788170591443

The Wisdom contained in the published letters of the Masters, is not merely for those to whom they were addressed but also for all those seeking to tread the Path of Holiness along the line of Devotion.

Glimpses of that Wisdom can be had through the extracts incorporated by the author into Daily Meditations. She has selected passages suitable to be meditated upon – one each for every day of the year. They are arranged as twelve virtues, with one quality assigned for each month, namely: Unselfishness, Compassion, Truth, Devotion, Purity, Sympathy, Courage, Intuition, Tolerance, Self-reliance, Equilibrium and Perseverance.

From page 43:

DEVOTION

” Relative to the population of the world

you may be few in numbers,

but spiritual strength and power depend

not upon numbers.

Rather do they depend upon burning sincerity. “
