Buddha Is As Buddha Does: The Ten Original Practices for Enlightened Living

Of all the Buddha's teachings, perhaps his greatest gift can be found in "the Bodhisattva ideal," a template for living in the world as an "Awakener," a servant of the highest good for all. With his previous bestsellers including Awakening the Buddha Within (300,000 copies sold; Broadway, 1997), American-born Tibetan Buddhist teacher Lama Surya Das has made the helpful, healing insights of the Buddha accessible to millions. Now, with Buddha Is As Buddha Does, he helps listeners to discover:

* How to become a Bodhisattva, a peacemaking spiritual warrior, an embodiment of wise compassion in action
* How to actively practice the ten paramitas in daily life: generosity, ethics, patience, energetic effort, meditation, wisdom, skillful means, higher aspiration, powers, and pristine awareness
* The Seven Jewels of the Bodhisattva: Faith and Devotion, Self-Discipline, Discriminating Wisdom, Charity, Learning, Honesty, and Modesty
* Inspirational lessons from history's legendary Bodhisattvas including Tara, Avalokitesvara, and Manjushri--plus contemporary examples of enlightened action based on the realization of the oneness of all life.

"As long as there is suffering in the world, there is spiritual work to do," explains Lama Surya Das. "We are the Bodhisattvas, the future Buddhas of this world." With Buddha Is As Buddha Does, listeners will experience the fruits of the Buddha's greatest lessons.

Shambhala Publications on Audio Download

For more than a third of a century, Shambhala Publications has been devoted to the magic, craft, and business of books. Shambhala has specialized in books that present creative and conscious ways of transforming the individual, the society, and the planet.

The notion of translating spiritual insight into action in the world is embodied in the company's name: "Shambhala" is a legendary Central Asian kingdom that symbolizes an enlightened way of life harmonizing the inner and outer worlds. Thus, the Shambhala worldview enables them to publish in a wide variety of subject areas, including psychology and the sciences, the arts and creativity, business and economics, and health and healing. But it is religion and philosophy that remain the heart of their publishing program.

Here you'll find audio programs from teachers like Pema Chodron, Ken Wilber, Sakyong Mipham, the Dalai Lama, and Thich Nhat Hanh along with superb translations of classic spiritual works such as The Art of War, Siddhartha, The Tibetan Book of the Dead, and The Way of the Bodhisattva.

Audio Books by the Dalai Lama

Audio Books by His Holiness the Dalai Lama

LearnOutLoud.com is honored to be able to present everything available on audio from His Holiness the Dalai Lama. You may wish to start with "The Art Of Happiness", which mixes Buddhist tradition with common sense to illustrate how one can defeat feelings such as anger, anxiety, depression, and other destructive emotions. We also suggest "How To Practice: The Way To A Meaningful Life ", an accessible reference guide for life's hard decisions. It will teach ways of opening your heart, how to refrain from hurting others, how to retain mental wellness, and more. These teachings are divided into distinct steps and are designed for people of all faiths to learn from.

Finally there's "Advice On Dying", in which the stages of death are described so beautifully that we come to see death as the ultimate journey into transformation rather than an end. In this way the Dalai Lama shows us how to prepare for that time and, in doing so, how to enrich our time on earth, die without fear, and influence the stage between this life and the next so that we may gain the best possible incarnation. All of the books listed below share the common thread of His Holiness' excited spirit and sense of playful calm. LearnOutLoud.com's list of audio books by the Dalai Lama offer a new world of spiritual and mental awareness that will center your heart and prepare you not only for the day to day grind of the world, but also help you live a fuller, happier life.
