Written by Buddho

Mind Overcoming its Cankers by Acharya Buddharakkhita is one of our most recommended books. It is a profound exposition of the āsavas, the mental pollutions that maintain samsāra, the endless wandering around, and thus the endless unsatisfactoriness.

Acharya Buddharakkhita does this by means of the Sabbasava Sutta, the second sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya (the middle length teachings of the Buddha) and the old Commentaries thereon.

Although the book may seem a bit dry and theoretical at first, it hides a deep practical manual for the Buddhist practitioner. For anyone practicing Buddhist meditation it is more than worthwhile.

About Buddho

Sinds 2017 werken we eraan om mensen de kans te geven om via het internet kennis te maken met samatha-meditatie op buddho, een meditatiesysteem dat ons veel goeds heeft gebracht. Naast het verspreiden van dit meditatiesysteem hopen we een waardevolle bijdrage te leveren aan de kennis over het boeddhisme en meditatie in Nederland. Hiervoor schrijven en vertalen we regelmatig teksten en plaatsen we andere inhoud die we van hoge kwaliteit achten of die direct gerelateerd is aan onze leraar Ahba.
