  • "All the Watts you'll ever need"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This series of lectures is a comprehensive compilation of Watts teaching on Buddhism, Zen, Hinduism and Taoism. Plus there is also the humor of his one-of-a-kind philosophy based on years of studying the Eastern religions and philosophy. As an Anglican Priest he also has great insights into Christianity. Once you've listened to this you've got everything Watts had to give. Although like me, you may find yourself drawn to rehearing these humorous and insightful talks over and over again.

    Story

    I've been waiting a long time for a good audio version of Hsin Hsin Ming and so I was very happy to discover this excellent overview of this key text in Zen literature. The author does a good job of doing a line-by-line explanation of the poem. I especially appreciated his use of the variety of translations in this commentary. He showed that there is more than one way to interpret the text. As with all things Zen, listeners are free to reach their own conclusions.

    Indian mystic Swami Vivekananda addresses the 1893 World Parliament of Religions in Chicago offering an inspiring message of a shared spirituality and the harmony of world religions. He is considered a key figure in the introduction of Hindu philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga in Europe and America, and is also credited with raising interfaith awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion during the end of the 19th century.

  • Great Minds of the Eastern Intellectual Tradition

    "Great Lectures among the best of the Great Courses"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Great Minds of the Eastern Intellectual Tradition the most enjoyable?

    Listening to a professor acknowledged for his ability to teach and who has obvious passion for the subject and a large coverage without losing his audience.


    What did you like best about this story?

    So much information here in a subject I did not know much about and feel that I learned quite a bit from it. Even if I can't remember all the names and specifics, there will always be new avenues of thinking opened by this book.


    What about Professor Grant Hardy’s performance did you like?

    Obviously passionate about the subject. The only problem is that he can't say "example" and says "edsample" which is a bit annoying. He can't help that of course, but if you are really irritated by that sort of thing, probably should let this one go. Sad if you have to, but I can understand that sort of irritability.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story of the monk who after many frightening and potentially fatal incidents finds peace in the beautiful flower seconds before his death. This resonated with me strongly and brought to mind the rather famous verse from the new testament "Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is lovely, ... , whatever is of good report, think about these things". This is the true inspirational value of the great courses: expanding ones knowledge and connecting various understandings with the feeling of understanding new and fascinating connections.


    Any additional comments?

    The great courses are amazing, I wholly recommend them with respect to those I have completed so far.

    Western philosophy is a vast intellectual tradition, the product of thousands of years of revolutionary thought built up by a rich collection of brilliant minds. But to understand the Western intellectual tradition is to get only half the story. The Eastern intellectual tradition has made just as important a contribution-and is also the product of thousands of years of cumulative thought by a distinct group of brilliant thinkers. Their ideas demonstrate wholly different ways of approaching and solving the same fundamental issues that concerned the West's greatest thinkers, such as . the existence of God; . the meaning of life; and. the nature of truth and reality.This epic and comprehensive 36-lecture examination of the East's most influential philosophers and thinkers-from a much-honored teacher and scholar-offers a thought-provoking look at the surprising connections and differences between East and West. By introducing you to the people-including The Buddha, Ashoka, Prince Shotoku, Confucius, and Gandhi-responsible for molding Asian philosophy and for giving birth to a wide variety of spiritual and ideological systems, it will strengthen your knowledge of cultures that play increasingly important roles in our globalized 21st-century world.

    On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chodron introduces a rare Tibetan teaching she received from her teacher, Dzigar Kontrul Rinpoche, and one that has become critical to her practice. Here, she unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality; a "pre-emotional" feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort, often with harmful habits. With Getting Unstuck, she offers us a first look at "both the itch and the scratch": what Tibetan Buddhists call shenpa.

In the years to come, Rinpoche survived under harsh Chinese rule, as he was forced into hard labor and endured continual public humiliation as part of Mao’s Communist "reeducation".

    Adyashanti asks us to let go of our struggles with life and open to the full promise of spiritual awakening: the end of delusion and the discovery and expression of our essential being. After 15 years as a spiritual teacher, Adyashanti has found that the simpler the teaching, the greater its power to initiate this awakening. On Falling into Grace, he shares what he considers fundamental insights to "open ourselves to that mysterious element that enters in the hidden and quiet moments and sparks a revolution in the way that we perceive life."
