No religion has ste a higher value on states of spiritual insight and liberation, and none has set forth so methodologically and with such a wealth of reflection the various paths and with such a wealth of reflection the various paths and disciplines by which such states are reached.

Buddhas And Ancestors ✍ Juhn Y. Ahn
📝Buddhas and Ancestors Detail : Two issues central to the transition from the Kory to the Chos n dynasty in fourteenth-century Korea were social differences in ruling elites and the decline of Buddhism, which had been the state religion. In this revisionist history, Juhn Ahn challenges the long-accepted Confucian critique that Buddhism had become so powerful and corrupt that the state had to suppress it. When newly rising elites (many with strong ties to the Mongols) used lavish donations to Buddhist institutions to enhance their status, older elites defended their own adherence to this time-honored system by arguing that their donations were linked to virtue. This emphasis on virtue and the consequent separation of religion from wealth facilitated the Confucianization of Korea and the relegation of Buddhism to the margins of public authority during the Chos n dynasty.
Teaching Mysticism ✍ William B. Parsons
📝Teaching Mysticism Detail : The term ''mysticism'' has never been consistently defined or employed, either in religious traditions or in academic discourse. The essays in this volume offer ways of defining what mysticism is, as well as methods for grappling with its complexity in a classroom. This volume addresses the diverse literature surrounding mysticism in four interrelated parts. The first part includes essays on the tradition and context of mysticism, devoted to drawing out and examining the mystical element in many religious traditions. The second part engages traditions and religio-cultural strands in which ''mysticism'' is linked to other terms, such as shamanism, esotericism, and Gnosticism. The volume's third part focuses on methodological strategies for defining ''mysticism,'' with respect to varying social spaces. The final essays show how contemporary social issues and movements have impacted the meaning, study, and pedagogy of mysticism. Teaching Mysticism presents pedagogical reflections on how best to communicate mysticism from a variety of institutional spaces. It surveys the broad range of meanings of mysticism, its utilization in the traditions, the theories and methods that have been used to understand it, and provides critical insight into the resulting controversies.
Gesture Of Awareness ✍ Charles Genoud
📝Gesture of Awareness Detail : """Unlike many books that explore the meaning of spiritual practice, Gesture of Awareness is not an account or explanation of such practices but an expression of them. In succinct, poetic style, Charles offers a vision of human existence as it can be lived and embodied, once we take the risk to discard those concepts and assumptions that stand in the way of an immediate encounter with the present. Drawing on Buddhist texts, shamanism and the writings of thinkers such as Maurice Blanchot and Georges Bataille, Gesture of Awareness weaves insights from these diverse traditions into a coherent and compelling whole. At the same time, the text is a workbook that encourages the reader to engage with the material in a way that can make a real difference in his or her life. It is the kind of book that cannot be absorbed in a single reading and then shelved, but one that calls us to pay attention to its message again and again." -Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism without Beliefs, and Living with the Devil "
