Path Press

Tradition: Theravada, Buddhist Publisher
Affiliation: Path Press Publications
E-mail: pathpress@nanavira.org
Website: http://www.pathpress.org
Main Contact: Bhikkhu H, āṇasuvi  Email  
Notes and Events:

Path Press is a non-profit entity, which handles legal matters and holds the copyrights of all Ven. Ñāṇavīra Thera’s writings together with writings of Ven. Bodhesako and Sister Vajirā. It was founded in Sri Lanka in 1987 by Ven. Bodhesako. It is an entity with a small group of 4 bhikkhus and 3 layman (upāsakas) who are aspiring to make the late Ven. Ñāṇavīra Thera’s teachings more available for those who are interested.

‘Path Press’ was a name of convenience, originally intended to include those who, through the years, have contributed their various talents to bring Clearing the Path to realization. Path Press was not planned to be an ongoing publishing house. However, it now turns out that there remains sufficient worthwhile material from the writings of the Venerable Ñāṇavīra Thera to issue other volumes to the present work; and there are a few other writings, unpublished or now out of print, which, like Clearing the Path, are of high quality, worthy of publication or reprinting. Therefore it was established a publishing house, called ‘Path Press Publications’ (www.pathpresspublications.com).

After a break of a year or so, the group is hoping to resume in early 2010. The classes offer people the chance ot meditate together, using the Mindfulness of Breathing and the mettabhavana - i.e. the development of ‘loving-kindness’. Meditations will be guided to the extent that those present at any given time will require, so experienced meditators or novices are equally welcome. Time will also be put aside afterwards to discuss, share meditation experiences, difficulties, etc, also questions on any aspect of Buddhism.

The Order is dedicated to the practice of the Serene Reflection Meditation tradition, know as Tsao-Tung Chan in China and Soto Zen in Japan. The Order was established by Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett to serve as the international umbrella organisation for the monasteries, priories (local temples) and meditation groups led by priests of our lineage in Britain, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, France and the United States. The group has strong connections with Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey, a Zen Buddhist monastery and retreat centre situated in Northumberland - its Abbot is Rev. Master Daishin Morgan. Senior members of the monastic community there regularly visit the group and also lead short retreats in Preston. They are also available on request to give private spiritual counselling to group members.

Richard Hunn Association For Chan Study

Address: C/o The Secretary 1 Westfield Road  Sutton, Surrey London SM1 2JY
Tradition: Mahayana, Chan Buddhism - From master Xu Yun (1840-1959), Charles Luk & Richard Hunn (deceased) - Shi Da Dao.
Affiliation: Chan Dao Martial Arts Association
E-mail: Shidadao@mailforce.net
Website: http://chanbuddhismuk.proboards34.com/
Find on:
Contact: Shi Da Dao  Email  
Teacher: Shi Da Dao  
Spiritual Director: Richard Hunn (Wen Shu)  
Notes and Events:

Master Xu Yun asked Charles Luk to translate vital Chinese Buddhist texts into English, to help Buddhists in the West.  Charles Luk asked Richard to try and keep these translations in the public eye - which he did up until his death.  He founded the website to facilitate this idea.  On the site are numerous translated texts, designed to help the student wherever they are.

Creating a meditation space, wherever you are is the key practice.  This is essential for development.  This practice may be augmented by irregular Chan meditation weeks of intense introspection.  Such weeks are dependent on the use of suitable facilities, etc.  Which are not always available.

The hua tou method is used, whereby one meditates on a question such as Who s hearing? This will eventually lead to a startling discovery!

Peace in the Dharma.

Notes and Events:

Rissho Kosei-kai is a worldwide Buddhist organization founded in Japan in 1938 by Nikkyo Niwano and Myoko Naganuma. It combines the wisdom of both the Lotus Sutra and the foundational teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha. Its purpose is to bring these transformative teachings to the modern world.

The Lotus Sutra is a teaching of human respect, both the study and practice of a spiritual path that develops human potential, and a way of living that seeks peace for all people. By studying, understanding, integrating, and practicing the teachings, human beings can gradually approach a state of mind free from delusions, thereby enriching their own lives and those of others around them. Because everything is interconnected, when people devote themselves to benefitting all beings through harmony, they create awareness and develop a better world. This is the ideal for practitioners of the Lotus Sutra.
