What would life be like if each one of us chose compassion over anger, loving-kindness over hatred, awareness over ignorance? The Mind and the Way demonstrates a radically simple approach to life, one in which we are able to awaken to our true loving nature and delight in the mystery and wonder of the world. With warmth and a wonderful sense of humor, Ajahn Sumedho draws on the experiences of ordinary life to convey Buddhist insights that for 2,500 years have continued to remain vital and pertinent to our lives.

I love early mornings, including that period of darkness before sunrise. It is during this special time of day that I can be alone with my thoughts, write uninterrupted, and feel as if I am at my most productive. Over the years I have also found the best way to begin each day is to thank the universe for the gift of a new day. These expressions of gratitude have a way of returning more of what it is I love about my life back to me. I have also found that a good quote, an affirmation or two, thoughts from our ancient wisdom writers, or words of inspiration from a variety of people––especially creative people––are the best way to kick off my day. I make every moment special and meaningful. I make every moment productive and rewarding. I make every moment positive and life-affirming. Enjoying a lifetime’s worth of beautiful days––this is what I Imagine, believe, and create for my whole self each and every day. You can do the same; you too can Imagine Believe Create a lifetime’s worth of beautiful days. How? Open the book to today’s date––it can all begin right now. Have a beautiful day.

The field of religion and ecology is an emerging and growing movement that is becoming relevant and influential in the world. It seeks to analyse, encourage, inspire, use, compare, and combine religious traditions to engage and shape environmental issues. Tony Watling seeks to ethnographically analyse this important field and its expressions. In particular, he analyses and compares its explorations of different world religions for ecological themes and the resulting expressions of ecological visions, in what he terms 'religious ecotopias' - idealized, environmentally-friendly re-imaginings of nature and humanity, and correspondingly religion, which seek to influence environmental attitudes.

This is a penetrating study of the striking parallels between the work of Scottish novelist Neil Gunn and Eastern thought, particularly those of Zen Buddhism and Taoism. All of his books are crucially concerned with man's archetypal quest for wisdom and freedom. Many of his characters have just those qualities of stillness, inner luminosity and unspoken meaning that characterize the traditional Oriental religions. In a detailed and lively analysis of seven of Gunn's major novels including Highland River, The Silver Darlings, and The Well at the World's End, Burns explores the significance of such moments in Gunn's fiction. Contents: Light, Delight and Zen, Introduction; The Pivot of Tao, Butcher's Broom 1934; Returning to the Source, Highland River 1937; The Heart of the Circle, The Silver Darlings 1941; Slaying the Mind, The Serpent 1943; The World of Light, The Well at the World's End 1951; Beyond Violence, Bloodhunt 1952; Seeking the Master, The Other Landscape 1954; Celebration of the Light; References; Glossary of Zen Terms; Bibliography; Index

St. Mary’s nunnery is a place of prayer and healing for women—so it is surprising to see a man sprawled out in the cloister garden. Dead. Less surprising, to Dame Frevisse, was the identity of the victim. Master Montfort was not particularly liked by anyone in the town of Goring—even his own wife and clerk. As royal escheator, he was trying to settle a heated inheritance dispute between a wealthy woman and her supposed nephew. Now Dame Frevisse must step in and untangle the fortunes and felonies in this complicated case of political and familial rivalries. But her real challenge is to put aside her feelings and serve justice for the murder of an unjust man.
