Meditation / Live and recorded 7am Sits with Gil Fronsdal
« on: October 28, 2020, 05:55:18 PM »
Here is something of possible interest -- noted insight meditation Gil Fronsdal conducts live sits a regular basis.  I stumbled across it while browsing the web this morning.

The guided meditation was followed by a talk on the Eightfold Noble Path.  There were over 400 people tuned in today.

About him, from Wikipedia:

"Gil Fronsdal is a Norwegian-born, American Buddhist teacher, writer and scholar based in Redwood City, California. He has been practicing Buddhism of the Sōtō Zen and Vipassanā sects since 1975, and is currently teaching the practice of Buddhism in the San Francisco Bay Area."

Open Discussion / Favorite Buddhist books

I am not sure if this is the right subforum to put this, but I thought it is time to compile a list of recommended Buddhist books.  There were extensive resources collected on the old forum, but we can start afresh here.

I will launch it with The Dhammapada.

Not to do any evil,
to cultivate good,
to purify one’s mind,
this is the Teaching of the Buddhas.
