February 15 2011 Buddhism Newsletter


Hi all,

The latest two articles from the BellaOnline Buddhism site are:

Buddhist Rebirth
Many people associate reincarnation with Buddhism, but in fact the Buddha taught a doctrine of rebirth, not reincarnation. What is the difference, and what do the different schools of Buddhism teach about it? What is its relevance to Buddhist meditation and practice?

The Ten Buddhist Perfections
The paramitas, or perfections, in Buddhism are a set of virtues that aspirants cultivate as part of their path. Cultivating these virtues is seen to purify karma, and clear away hindrances to enlightenment.

Here's your sutta passage for this issue, on metta or lovingkindness (appropriate for Valentine's week!), also quoted in the article on the Ten Perfections:

"May all beings be happy and secure, may their hearts be wholesome! Whatever living beings there be; feeble or strong, stout or medium, short or tall, without exception; seen or unseen, those dwelling far or near, those who are born and those who are yet to be born, may all beings be happy! Let none deceive another, not despise any person whatsoever in any place. Let him not wish any harm on another out of anger or ill will. Just as a mother would protect her only child at the risk of her own life, even so let him cultivate a boundless heart towards all beings."

In Peace,
Lisa Erickson, Buddhism Editor
