Zen in Touch
The Seven Factors of Living Happiness

By Khai Thien, 2004

 

Book description

Not a philosophical odyssey into the realm of what we can imagine about the kingdom of God or the realm of Nirvana, Zen in Touch, rather, is a spiritual journey that directs us individually to penetrate deeply into the miraculous world of self-realization by applying the techniques of Zen. As an essential guidebook for practitioners covering both the theory and practice of Buddhist meditation, Zen in Touch, with its seven provoking topics and seven factors of living happiness, offers the clearest guidance regarding how readers may reach the state of Nirvana—true happiness—in one’s daily life by liberating the great potentials of the Buddha nature from inner bondage and the hindrances of the impure mind. This handbook of Living Happiness is not only for Zen students and practitioners but for everyone who wishes to get in touch with the base of Nirvana—the divine blissfulness— not in the life after death but in the present moment, the flowing current of reality in which no concept of time such as yesterday or tomorrow can be found, only the true current of the here and now.

Synopsis

Zen in Touch is a simple and clear map that shows us how to handle and how to live better in the chaos of both the good and the bad, both the negative and the positive of each personal reality. The first part of the book provides an intensive review on various aspects of human life, both internal and external reality; those aspects are the background on which readers can go further into the spiritual journey. The second part, the essential core of the book, presents the Seven Factors of Living Happiness that were taught directly by the Buddha more than 2,600 years ago. These seven factors [teachings] are the essential characters in the Buddhist history of Enlightenment. On the path to Nirvana—eternal happiness—Zen in Touch could be your best companion.

The Buddhist community is extremely upset by the inappropriate and disrespectful use of the image of Buddha, The Buddhist community is extremely upset by the inappropriate and disrespectful use of the image of Buddha, in a display at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) entitled the 'Eternity-Buddha in Nirvana, the Dying Gaul, Farnese Hercules, Night, Day, Sartyr and Bacchante, Funerary Genius, Achilles, Persian Soldier Fighting, Dancing Faun, Crouching Aphrodite, Narcisse Couché, Othryades the Spartan Dying, the Fall of Icarus, A River, Milo of Croton'. It can also be seen at: https://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/explore/collection/work/131149/ Although this display has been in place for some months, we have only just been made aware of its' existence. We are not usually outspoken, but this display desecrates the image of Buddha by placing images of these mythical images on him and in doing so, showing no apparent regard or respect for Him.

Buddhism is a cultural phenomenon that spread to Vietnam from another country during the Hung King period in the second and third century BCE, when Vietnam was an independent, sovereign state.

Chinese dynasties began to invade many Viet nations, including Vietnam, whose names were then Tay Au and Lac Viet. It was in the very process to counter this Northern expansionist aggression that Buddhism had become for the Vietnamese people an effective vehicle in the resistance against assimilation and conquest from the North.

I first met Munindra in 1967. I had been introduced to Buddhism as a Peace Corps volunteer in Thailand two years earlier, but when I returned home and tried to practice meditation on my own, it didn’t take long to realize that I needed a teacher to help cut through the confusion in my mind. In those years, the Buddha’s teachings were relatively unknown in the West, and I decided to return to Asia in search of someone who could guide me on the path.
