Nirvana – The Highest Happiness (Meditations on Buddhist Issues)
Nirvana – The Highest Happiness (Meditations on Buddhist Issues)
Description
Back of the Book

Nirvana, is the extinction of all illusion from consciousness, especially the deep-rooted delusion of ‘I’. It has been described as that which is Unborn, Unoriginated and Unformed. This well researched and clear-sighted collection of essays is the work of an eminent writer in the field of Indology. Though written from the standpoint of Theravada, the author occasionally expresses views that lie outside the mainstream of current Theravada.

A collection of refreshingly original essays offer enquiry into the Self from the Buddhist Perspective.

“Who has the patience to endure suffering for an indefinite period of time? Let us rejoice that there is the possibility of immediate realisation, instantaneous spiritual transformation as it were in the twinkling of an eye. So if we fail to find the releases of Enlightenment in this present life, we have only ourselves to blame for our great lassitude and lack of enthusiasm for Nirvana.”

DR. SUSUNAGA WEERAPERUMA is a prolific author whose writings testify to his profound understanding of Indian Philosophy, Vedanta and Buddhism. Author of New Insights into Buddhism, A Bibliography of the Ly% and Teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti among others, his celebrated book of reminiscences entitled Krishnamurty as I knew Him, has been translated into several languages.

Weeraperuma lives in the quietness of the medieval village called Les Arcs-sur-Argens and devotes his time to Hatha Yoga, contemplation, writing and organic gardening.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
