  • Essentials of Insight Meditation Practice [kopia lokalna] (pdf 3,34 MB) - Ven. Sujiva

    The ultimate aim of insight meditation is to "free" one from the unsatisfactoriness of cyclic existence. Readers may also find numerous quotations of the Buddha's teaching on mindfulness, detachment and liberation throughout the entire book. Those verses act as a source of inspiration and purpose to put vipassana into practice - a practice that brings about insight into the three universal characteristics of unsatisfactoriness, impermanence and non-self which leads one into detachment and ultimate liberation.

  • Loving-kindness Meditation [kopia lokalna] (pdf 211 kB) - Ven. Sujiva

    Loving-kindness Meditation or Metta Bhavana and other Sublime States by Ven. Sujiva is a clear and comprehensive step-by-step explanation of the systematic practice. It is based on the Visuddhimagga or The Path of Purification by Buddhagosha. The texts describe metta as characterised by promoting the aspect of welfare. Amity, goodwill, friendliness and loving-kindness are some words used to describe this mental state. There is no better way to know it than to study it as it occurs in one's own and others' minds.

    • Podstawy praktyki medytacji Czan [kopia lokalna] (pdf 609 kB) - Ting Chen, Tr. Master Lok To

      The Fundamentals of (Ch'an) Meditation Practice by Ting Chen. "Originally, one's own mind and nature are pure, and there is nothing to accept and nothing to refuse; there is neither existence nor nonexistence; there is only clear understanding without attachment and with no dwelling. One who wants to know the no-attachment, no-dwelling mind can find it through meditation, because it is only then that the mind does not think of right and wrong, of good and evil or of self and others".

    • Bramy Buddyzmu czan [kopia lokalna] (pdf 470 kB) - Venerable Jing Hui

      BODHIDHARMA'S GATE: "Chan (Zen) in fact is an "impregnable fortress", without a gate to enter. Suppose there is really a gate, that gate would simply be a method of training to be taken up in the Chan tradition. That is why when a monk asked Master Zhao Zhou (778-897): "Has a dog Buddha-nature or not?" Master Zhao Zhou retorted: "Wu." Later on, this Gongan (koan) formed part of a specific approach in the Chan School." The author , Venerable Jing Hui is a Chan Master and a vice-president of the Buddhist Association of China.

    • Słodkie Krople Czan [kopia lokalna] (pdf 1,6 MB) - Reverend Cheng Kuan

      Ch'an or Zen is the outcome of meditation. There are two "right" or "highest" purposes of Ch'an. The first purpose is to achieve "Dhyana." Dhyana is a combination of relaxation, concentration and calmness or tranquility. The second purpose is, using your very composed and tranquil mind, to observe clearly all the dharmas or phenomena externally and internally. As an outcome of Dhyana, you will be able to observe these phenomena very clearly because your "mental mirror" is very clear, for there are no more disturbances to veil it. Out of these observations will come Transcendental Wisdom, which in Sanskrit is called "Prajna."
