The works of the Buddha can feel vast, and it is sometimes difficult for even longtime students to know where to look, especially since the Buddha never explicitly defined the framework behind his teachings. Designed to provide just such a framework, In the Buddha's Words is an anthology of the Buddha's works that has been specifically compiled by a celebrated scholar and translator. Learn More$18.95
In traditional Buddhist and Taoist temples, there exists the elegant flowing figure of the great Goddess of Compassion, Kuan Yin. Bearing colorful, fragrant offerings of fruits and flowers, food and gifts the devoted come forth through a haze of incense, placing their offerings reverently before her. Under the Goddess' benevolent gaze, worshipers seek her guidance as they draw from a container of 100 bamboo sticks. Each of these sticks represents an ancient verse celebrating the Goddess' compassion, wisdom, and love. Collectively, they comprise The 100 Poem Oracle of Kuan Yin. This book includes the Kuan Yin Oracle Board.

We live in difficult times. Life sometimes seems like a roiling and turbulent river threatening to drown us and destroy the world. Why, then, shouldn't we cling to the certainty of the shore--to our familiar patterns and habits? Because, Pema Chodron teaches, that kind of fear-based clinging keeps us from the infinitely more satisfying experience of being fully alive. The teachings she presents here--known as the "Three Commitments"--provide a wealth of wisdom for learning to step right into the river: to be completely, fearlessly present even in the hardest times, the most difficult situations. When we learn to let go of our protective patterns and do that, we begin to see not only how much better it feels to live that way, but, as a wonderful side effect, we find that we begin to naturally and effectively reach out to others in care and support.
As global temperatures rise and natural systems decline, humanity is being forced to confront the darkening shadow of material progress and mechanistic thinking. Meanwhile we are witnessing the dawning of a more enlightened worldview that recognizes the intimate interdependence of all forms of life and all aspects of reality. Learn More$18.95
