Ajahn Satit and the members of Wat Buddhavongsayaram gave a new set of Buddhist Books that they have available at the temple, to Albury Library Museumin in the afternoon of December 14, 2011. So people in Albury could have easy access to these books.
The books are funded by 60TH Dhammachai Education Foundation and the Foundation is willing to provide more books to any library in Australia. If you like these books to be available in your local library, please send your enquire to firstname.lastname@example.org
These six books are
Visudhivaca: Translation of Morradok Dhamma of Luang Phaw Wat Paknam (Phramongkolthepmuni) (Volume I and Volume II): The high level meditation knowledge explaining the Buddha Teaching in Pali, in a plain language.
The Big white cover “ World Peace Lies Within One Man’s Vision” written by John Hoskin and Robert Sheridan. This book is recommended to read by many who have read it.
“I enjoyed reading and highly recommend John Hoskins book about World Peace. It was a lovely journey through word and image through the core principles of the Buddhist practice. It’s message was that anyone can find peace if one is mindful, in their thought and action. Meditation is the golden key that will unlock our inner selves. It will free us from suffering. All humans suffer it doesn’t matter what your race, religion, social or economic background. We all yearn for peace, to be at peace with the world and with ourselves. Reading about Luang Por Dhammajayos’ vision was inspiring. To dream of a centre for world peace and to create it with the help of many others was an amazing achievement. I would like one day to visit Wat Phra Dhammakaya. To see for myself the buildings and gardens captured so beautifully in Mark Standens photographs. To meet and meditate with people of all kinds in the grounds of such a special place.”
The other three books are series of the teaching of the Most Venerable Luang Phaw Dhammajayo
Lovely Love : All you need to know to make your love happy.
“ Reveal in the fact that the sole happiness in life is to love and be loved. Speak lovingly, think lovingly and act lovingly towards others and experience the infinite joy that pure love will bring into your life consequentially.”
Journey to Joy : The Simple Path Towards a Happy Life.
“Your future lies in your hands. The journey towards ultimate happiness begins with you. Start meditation today and withness the positive changes in your life unfold before you!”
At Last You Win : Life is… how you design it. Lose or WIN, it depends on you…
“Our lives are always challenged by competitions and rivalries in which we are obliged to participate for expected achievement, whether they aresignificant or insignificant. As a result, there are numerous barriers and goals on the path of our journey through life. This certainly consumes our physical and mental energy. In order to overcome these obstacles before they overwhelm us, we must strengthen ourselves from within.”
