Dhammakaya Foundation, BUDDHISM INTO THE YEAR 2000:
International Conference Proceedings



This comprehensive book tells the story of the development of Buddhism from its origins through the present day to speculate about the future as we stand at the dawning of the twenty-first century. Written by a team of scholars, all of them authorities in their fields, a single volume spans almost 3,000 colourful years of development and diversification to give a uniquely authoritative history of Buddhism for the general reader or the scholar alike.
The first section discusses Earliest Buddhism and the relationship between Buddhism and the pre-Buddhistic cultures of Ancient India.
The second section discusses the balance between orthodoxy and heterodoxy, syncretism and Buddhist migration between East and West which influence Buddhist identity all around the world in the present day.
The third secion discusses scenarios and trends which point to directions for the future of Buddhism as a world religion.
The book reflects the changing world in which Buddhists have found themselves. Full colour photography records the International Conference of which this volume is the outcome. This book is complete with a dozen tables, a fifty-page glossary clarifying Buddhist terminology used in the book, annotated guides to further reading including ten languages and a full index. Authoritative, comprehensive and highly readable, this book captures the richness and vitality of Buddhist cultural diversity and thought throughout two-thousand five-hundred years of cultures and times and for the future to come.

Phrabhavanaviriyakhun, THE BUDDHA'S FIRST TEACHING
(Buddhism in Plain English Series 3)



According to author, Phrabhavanaviriyakhun (Luang Phaw Dattajeevo), the Buddha's First Teaching:

" . . . the Dhammacakkapavattana Sutta is so important because it acts like a master-plan for all the subsequent teachings on Buddhism given during the Buddha's lifetime. Even if the Lord Buddha were to teach the Dhammacakkapavattana Sutta and never to teach another word of Dhamma for the rest of his life, His duty in proclaiming the Dhamma to the world would have been fulfilled."

This book is an annotated and fully-indexed edition of the 800-year-old Saratthasamuccaya commentary on the Dhammacakkapavattana Sutta -- respecting the authenticity of the original while adopting a modernized perspective to help the present-day reader understand scriptural principles and ways to apply them to the practice of meditation.

Phrabhavanaviriyakhun, REFORMING SOCIETY means REFORMING HUMAN NATURE (Buddhism in Plain English Series 1)




The author Phrabhavanaviriyakhun, better known as 'Luang Phaw Dattajeevo' by his congregation in Thailand where he is Vice-President of the Dhammakaya Foundation, is renowned for his practical life solutions -- always attempting to reach the roots of problems instead of merely finding out who to blame. In this book, dealing with social structure and the problems that undermine it, the approach he offers is both succinct and practical, suitable for readers on all levels of Buddhist study.

"Phrabhavanaviriyakhun . . . has always been well known for Buddhist teachings that are relevant to modern living and . . . amenable to practice. His latest book, Reforming Society means Reforming Human Nature . . . is one of his most masterful works. It enlarges on the Singalovada Sutta giving clear guidance on many issues at the level of the family, society and the economy.
