Sprouting Your Wisdom Life

Can destiny be change

Why are hardships and setbacks considered positive conditions?

Why is maintaining awareness so important? How does it affect the choices we make and the outcomes we face?

This is remarkable collection of excerpts explores some of the most common experiences we encounter in life and cultivation. Reverend Ming-An Chen offers pragmatic guidance to transcending ourselves from the grind and challenges of everyday life by encouraging us to attain our wisdom life.

Wisdom life is an inner state of being that is harmonised with the nature of our pure awareness. It is an enlightened "life" (which is non-physical), based on and guided by our pure awareness, that eventually leads to ultimate enlightenment and liberation.

Sprouting Your Wisdom Life urges us to delicate ourselves to progress in our practice. It inspires us to effect an inner transformation that brings about genuine happiness, peace and harmony.

"Liberation is transcending everything about oneself, including one's limited way of thinking."

Awakening the Sleeping Mind

There are very few of us who are actually clear-minded and awake. Mostly, we exist in slumber, unmindfully grasping on to what is known in Buddhism as the Five Desires and Six Dusts of life.

Happiness is a birthright of everyone. Yet, why is there no happiness in life? When we die, is that the end of us? What is karma and how does it affect our life now and hereafter? Who is responsible? How can we distance from suffering and live life with bliss and happiness?

Awakening the Sleeping Mind is a small collection of answers that were given by Venerable Master Shen-Kai, teacher of the Buddhahood Lineage World Humanity Vehicle Buddhism (Jen Chen Buddhism), during his talks in many countries. In characteristically clear and simple language, the Venerable Master provides illuminating insights into the reality of life and death, and offers practical guidance on how to apply the ancient wisdom of the Buddha to our everyday lives.

Teacup is not a Teacup

Teacup is not a Teacup is a collection of publications, discussions and public talks given by Venerable Master Shen-Kai, one of the most highly respected Buddhist Masters of our time. In this book, the Venerable Master cuts to the heart of Buddhist teachings, guiding us to penetrate through the superficiality of appearances and labels by which we define everything, to see the interplay of causes, conditions and effects, and realise the essential nature of everything. Thus, we understand how every aspect of our suffering - unhappiness, worries, aging, sickness and death, can be ultimately uprooted through a profound realisation of our true nature and the reality of our lives with clarity, wisdom and right actions, so we become our own masters in creating meaningful lives, attaining inner liberation and finding true happiness and peace on earth.

"If one sees me by forms or seeks me in sounds,
one is practicing the wrong path and
cannot perceive the Tathagata."
