Pancha Sila The Five Precepts
Pancha Sila The Five Precepts
Description
Back of the Book:

Buddhism is considered by many to be more than just a religion. Its founder and teacher, Siddhartha Gautama, was the earthly saint who postulated the Buddhist ideas, becoming the Buddha, Shakyamuni.

But is Buddhism a true religion? In reality it is more a philosophical path; a way of thinking to unlock a route or direction, to rise above the transitory nature of physical life. Buddhism, in its purest form, offers a way forward for the conscious mind. For a Buddhist, a lifetime of self-analysis, meditation and right thought may be needed to discern the truths of life.

In these pages Bhikkhu Silacara gives an outline of the five (panch) precepts laid down by Lord Buddha. It explains in detail the main ideas behind each of the five basic concepts, the Panch Sila. Some of the main sources of wisdom and knowledge are to be found within these.

But what are the Pancha Sila and how do they relate to the Buddha? This small book clearly answers these questions.

Preface to the New Edition

Although Buddhism is one of the world's major religions, its ideals and intricacies are not so easily understood. This small booklet about Buddhism, written by Bhikkhu Silacara, is a simple book translating some the Buddha's ideas and philosophies.

" He found the cause of the world pain to lie simply and entirely in the deeds and doings of men themselves."

It has often been commented that the lands that encompass Buddhism as a national faith have a certain ambience. This is not in the physical, but the spiritual, aspects and is manifested through the conduct of their citizens.

Does this culturally defined trait have a link to the Buddhist ideals of the inhabitants?

The booklet offers us a view of the five great tenets of Buddhism, namely the Pancha or Five precepts that form part of the basis of Buddhist thought. It is the concentration on these deeds and ideas that enables the practitioner to advance in his quest. This book relates the purest form of Buddhism from which other paths have sprung.

What are these Five Precepts that we shall discover?
Bhikkhu Silacara has defined the teachings of the Buddha in this brief but explicit booklet. It is to be hoped that the messages of the Buddha ignite a desire for a better world.

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
