Product Overview

In "The State of Mind Called Beautiful," Burmese meditation master Sayadaw U. Pandita lays out the breadth, depth, and wealth of the Theravadan tradition of Buddhism. Beginning with the basic guidelines of Buddhism he then moves on to various practices. Those that can be done for one minute a day; those that sweeten and strengthen the mind; those that heal societies and families; and those that lead to liberation. Also included are complete teachings on vipassana or Insight meditation, from how to do it, to how to refine it, to how to deal with difficulties; teachings on the development of mindfulness, wisdom, patience, and practice; and a concise biography of the historical Buddha, showing that the qualities that allowed him to achieve liberation reside within all seekers. Rounding out the book are a helpful questions-and-answers section and Pali-to-English and English-to-Pali glossaries, ensuring that readers easily master the meanings of important terms.
