The Five Eyes of Buddhism

Here are the notes relating to our latest Mindfulness Exercise, "Loving Eyes".


Five Eyes
1) heavenly eye, 2) flesh-eye, 3) Dharma-eye, 4) wisdom-eye, 5) Buddha-eye.

Those five non-corporeal 'eyes' are possessed by Buddhas and other enlightened beings. They can also begin to function to varying degrees in people who are not enlightened but are cultivating or who have cultivated in past lives.

New "Study Tool"

I have just added a link to "THE BUDDHA AND HIS DHAMMA", by Dr. B. R. Ambedkar onto our "Study Tools" section. This is taken from Columbia University's South Asia study resources compiled by Prof. Frances Pritchett.

New Study Tool

I've just come across the excellent site, Dharma Study, "finding our way through the Buddha’s words". I have put a permanent link to it under STUDY TOOLS.

Each week, they post and discuss one discourse from the Pali Canon, the oldest and most probably authentic collection of the Buddha’s teachings.

The sites' author is Richard Blumberg.
