The Illumination of Wu Hsin: Volume One - Being Conscious Presence By Roy Melvyn
eBook (ePub): $9.99
In this all-new translation, Wu Hsin reiterates three key points. First, on the phenomenal plane, when one ceases to resist What-Is and becomes more in harmony with It, one attains a state of Ming,... More > or clear seeing. Having arrived at this point, all action becomes wei wu wei, or action without action (non-forcing) and there is a working in harmony with What-Is to accomplish what is required. Second, as the clear seeing deepens (what he refers to as the opening of the great gate), the understanding arises that there is no one doing anything and that there is only the One doing everything through the many and diverse objective phenomena which serve as Its instruments. From this flows the third and last: the seemingly separate me is a misapprehension, created by the mind which divides everything into pseudo-subject (me) and object (the world outside of this me). This seeming two-ness (dva in Sanskrit, duo in Latin, dual in English), this feeling of being separate and apart, is the root cause of unhappiness.< Less
Behind the Mind: The Short Discourses of Wu Hsin By Roy Melvyn

Solving Yourself: Yuben de Wu Hsin By Roy Melvyn
eBook (ePub): $9.99
Solving Yourself: Yuben de Wu Hsin focuses on the transcendence of the body and mind, which results in sudden insight into one's true nature. It produces an involuntary reversion to one's essence, a... More > clear seeing that there is no place that one can call the center or a reference point here. There is nothing substantial that would allow one to declare ‘This is where I begin, this is what I really am.’ It is the recognition that what one is is nothing perceivable. Solving Yourself is unique in that it is structured in the format of daily contemplatives. The Yuben or Compendium of the Master’s Aphorisms can act as a stimulant; they are not so much about what Wu Hsin says but about what they evoke and how we respond. What makes this work of Wu Hsin such a rare find is that the articulation of his experience pre-dates, by many hundreds of years, the expressions of the great Channa (Ch’an) masters of the T’ang Dynasty, often considered to be the apogee of Chinese thought.< Less

What was their experience while they sat in his proximity? Sitting in his presence one was convinced for the time being that all troubles were ended and one was forced back on oneself in spite of all obstacles. And this was the wonder of his presence.

You will discover that spirituality is not something vague and uncertain but substantial and proven as got manifested in the Maharshi.< Less

eBook (ePub): $9.99
At the heart of Shin (Pure Land) Buddhist teaching lies a vision of true reality as alive with wisdom and compassion, working to bring all beings to the highest fulfillment of human life, the... More > attainment of Buddhahood. Shinran teaches that this activity manifests itself as Amida Buddha, who resolved to save all beings by bringing into his Pure Land, the realm of enlightenment, all who say his Name, entrusting themselves to his Vow. He thus performed practices for long eons and fulfilled this Vow, so that his Name, Namu Amida Butsu, came to resound throughout the universe, awakening all beings to the reality of great compassion.

More > breaking the mind's false identification with the ego, resulting in a knowing that "You are already That". In a sense, it is a recognition of that which had not previously been recognized. His talks were not for academics, but for those with the earnest desire to know their essential nature. His style is provocative, confrontive, at times combative, and immensely profound, cutting to the core and wasting no time with the non-essential. His potent words are known for their ability to trigger radical shifts from mere philosophical mental exercises to the purity of consciousness itself, even just by reading them. This compilation is an excellent introduction to the power of his words.< Less
The Core Teachings of Ramana Maharshi By Roy Melvyn
eBook (ePub): $9.99
The philosophy of Advaita or Non Duality has become, along with Buddhism, one of the most popular spiritual paths being pursued by those interested in enlightenment today. During the past three... More > decades, Advaita has become more widely recognized in the West through the ever growing popularity of Ramana Maharshi. His point of view has for its aim Self-realization. The central path taught in this philosophy is the inquiry into the nature of Self, the content of the notional 'I-thought'. Carl Jung wrote of Ramana: “Sri Ramana is a true son of the Indian earth. He is genuine and, in addition to that, something quite phenomenal. In India he is the whitest spot in a white space. What we find in the life and teachings of Sri Ramana is the purest of India; with its breath of world-liberated and liberating humanity, it is a chant of millenniums.” The core of Ramana’s teachings are presented herein; also included are three Ramana classics: Who Am I?, Self Enquiry, and Spiritual Instruction.< Less
Four Songs of Non Duality: The Ashtavakra, Avadhut, Ribhu and Bhagavad Gitas By Roy Melvyn
eBook (ePub): $9.99
Nonduality is a hard concept to grasp at first. The most fundamental proposition is that ”I" exist, and all else in the universe is”not I". Our conditioned awareness also... More > expresses itself as a judgmental spectrum with negative at one pole and positive at the other. In other words, our dualistic viewpoint -- which we take for granted -- is at the root of our divisiveness, dissatisfaction, and conflicting values; in short, of our unhappiness. For millennia, teachers of nonduality have assured us that it is possible to transcend this limitation and thereby live in an awareness of dualities absence, which turns out to be: harmony, contentment and equanimity. These four texts from the Hindu tradition clearly delineate the One Reality, That-Which-Is.< Less
