The spirit of the Buddha by Martine Batchelor( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this slim, enlightening volume, internationally recognized Buddhist teacher Martine Batchelor presents the basic tenets and teachings of the Buddha through a selection of essential texts from the Pali canon, the earliest Buddhist scriptures. Viewed by scholars as the actual substance of the historical teachings (and possibly even the words) of the Buddha, these texts are essential to an understanding of the Buddhist faith, and Batchelor illuminates them with her lucid analysis and interpretations. Both accessible to nonpractitioners and helpful to scholars, The Spirit of the Buddha touches upon key themes, including dharma, compassion, meditation, and peace, among others, creating a panoramic view of one of the world's most widely practiced faiths that is deeply rooted in its most vital texts

Let go : a Buddhist guide to breaking free of habits by Martine Batchelor( )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and Vietnamese and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everyone has negative habits -- even the smallest ones can take control of us. Let Go is a much-needed guide to getting that control back. Martine Batchelor helps readers focus their minds and uncover the roots of their repetitive behaviors. For Batchelor, it's all about how we relate to our thoughts. By adopting the kind of creative engagement that she teaches in Let Go, readers can start to see real change, and recognize problems for what they really are: growth opportunities! Batchelor's methods are applicable to all unwanted behavior -- from the slightest undesirable recurring actions to more serious patterns of cruelty, self-abuse, and negativity. Each chapter concludes with Batchelor's expert guidance in exercises or meditations that helps readers begin to work with their harmful habits in a new, creative, and empowering way"--Publisher's description

Kusan Sunim provides a wealth of practical advice for students, particularly with regard to the uniquely Korean practice of hwadu, or sitting with questioning.

Women in Korean Zen : lives and practices by Martine Batchelor( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this account, Martine Batchelor relays the challenges a new ordinand faces in adapting to Buddhist monastic life: the spicy food, the rigorous daily schedule, the distinctive clothes and undergarments, and the cultural misunderstandings inevitable between a French woman and her Korean colleagues. She also reveals the genuine pleasures that derive from solitude, meditative training, and communion with the deeply religious - whom Buddhists call "good friends."" "Batchelor had also recorded the oral-history autobiography of her teacher, the eminent nun Son'gyong Sunim, leader of the Zen meditation hall at Naewonsa. It is a profoundly moving, often lighthearted story that offers insight into the challenges facing a woman on the path to enlightenment at the beginning of the twentieth century. Original English translations of eleven of Son'gyong Sunim's poems on Buddhist themes make a graceful and thought-provoking coda to the two women's narratives." "Western readers only familiar with Buddhist ideas of female inferiority will be surprised by the degree of spiritual equality and authority enjoyed by nuns in Korea. While American writings on Buddhism increasingly emphasize the therapeutic, self-help, and comforting aspects of Buddhist thought, Batchelor's text offers a bracing and timely reminder of the strict discipline required in traditional Buddhism."--Jacket

M. Batchelor praktizierte 10 Jahre als Nonne in einem buddhistischen Kloster in Korea und war dann jahrelang als eine der leitenden Meditationslehrerinnen am "Gaia House Meditation Center" in Devon (Südengland) tätig.

Jedes Kapitel mit stimmungsvollen Farbfotos enthält 3 Teile: Im 1. Teil stellt die Autorin die grundlegenden Vorstellungen dar, die hinter der jeweiligen Meditationsrichtung stehen; der 2. Teil bezieht sich jeweils auf die formale Meditation in den 4 Haltungen: Sitzen, Gehen, Stehen und Liegen; der 3. Teil besteht aus einer geführten Meditation, die Themen wie "Kreative Bewusstheit", "Liebende Güte", "Mitgefühl" und "Tod" in den Mittelpunkt stellt. Zum Einstieg in die meditative Haltung. (2)
