Buddhist and Islamic Orders in Southern Asia: Comparative Perspectives

by R. Michael Feener

Over the last few decades historians and other scholars have succeeded in identifying diverse patterns of connection linking religious communities across Asia and beyond. Yet despite the fruits of this specialist research, scholars in the subfields of Islamic and Buddhist studies have rarely engaged with each other to share investigative approaches and methods of interpretation. This volume was conceived to open up new spaces of creative interaction between scholars in both fields that will increase our understanding of the circulation and localization of religious texts, institutional models, ritual practices, and literary specialists.The book’s approach is to scrutinize one major dimension of the history of religion in Southern Asia: religious orders. “Orders” (here referring to Su...

The Little Book of Buddhist Mindfulness & Concentration (The Little Books on Buddhism 5)

by Eric Van Horn

The Little Book on Buddhist Mindfulness & Concentration builds on the basic Buddhist practice that is described in the previous books in this series. This Little Book begins by describing the practice of mindfulness.

The word “mindfulness” has been greatly distorted in its imported, Western version. It is usually taught as something like “non-judgmental awareness” or “non-reactive attention.” But the Pali word for “mindfulness” literally means ”keeping something in mind,” not “attention.” Further, when the Buddha did teach “attention” he taught “wise attention,” which means attending to qualities of the mind that are skillful.

The Buddha’s teachings on mindfulness are taught most extensively in two discourses: “The Four Foundati...
