Synopsis : Heart of Wisdom written by Kelsang Gyatso, published by Motilal Banarsidass Publishe which was released on 2000. Download Heart of Wisdom Books now! Available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. This is a rather difficult subject handled facilely by the author. -- Heart of Wisdom is based on an oral commentary to the Essence of Wisdom Sutra (the Heart Sutra), which was given by the author at Manjushri Mahayana buddhist Centre in England. The Heart Sutra, one of the best known and most popular of Mahayana Buddhist scriptures, contains the essence of Buddha`s teachings on emptiness and the methods to develop the wisdom that understands this ultimate reality. In this highly acclaimed explanation of the Sutra, Geshe Kelsang reveals its explicit and implicit meanings with both clarity and authority, and relates them to the five Mahayana paths that lead to full enlightenment. Seen in modern light, Buddha had been able to perceive, even see the vast spatial distances between atoms and between sub-atomic particles filled with electrons and even sub-eletrons in a state of high vibration. This atomic condition corresponds to a similar pattern in the brains of living beings and to interstellar and interplanetary gaps. The subject of emptiness as the author explains deals with perceptions leading to concept of formation and creation of a world of sense ideas which is merely a random arranging of material resources in an otherwise empty space filled with vibrations of these very particles. This is a rather difficult subject handled facilely by the author.

Do you want to change your life? Have you tried it before and the plan didn't work? What about trying the Fenners' approach? They say we must change how we believe. For example: If you are neither a hero nor a coward, who will you be? If you are neither stupid nor smart, who will you be? If you are not poor, but neither are you rich, who are you? You! No matter what your spiritual philosophy -- whether you come from no tradition, or from a Christian, Buddhist, or other tradition -- you can change your life with this great new book! The Fenners bring fifty years of study and practice with them when they teach. They provide easy exercises to help you connect with your deep beliefs so you can see which beliefs result in stress and unnecessary tension. This brings a new sense of openness and peace where you can fully embrace new experiences, emotions, and thoughts without the need to escape them. You can come home to yourself and be who you really are without pretense, exaggeration, embarrassment, or guilt. Learning how to do this allows you to discover your ability to be with others lovingly and naturally, letting the loving part of yourself emerge as it has never been able to do before. The Fenners have distilled the essence of the profound wisdom teachings from many spiritual traditions, so the words are free of esoteric jargon and foreign terms. They make it easy to absorb spiritual truths that have previously been available only to people who have studied for many years.

This is a book for seekers. It encompasses the gamut of questions – restless, fevered, desperate – that have arisen in every seeker’s mind at some point or the other. Questions about fear, desire, suffering, commitment, free will, determinism, God, faith, love, morality, self-deception, doubt, karma, the spiritual path, the mind, the body, disease, healing, madness, death, dissolution.

In traditional business circles, wisdom is viewed with a certain scepticism, which is in part due to its historical associations with wisdom traditions and spiritual cultures. However, in business today, wisdom is emerging not only as a viable but also a necessary organizational and management practice. In particular, practical wisdom is being updated and retranslated for today’s issues and concerns in organizations. In recent years, leadership and organizational studies have initiated important changes in the way in which business-as-usual is conducted. In response to the increasingly complex and uncertain conditions of our international business environment, a growing community of ‘scholar-practitioners’ are pushing the boundaries of traditional organizational and leadership thinking and acting, making inroads into processes and applications of practical wisdom and ways of wise leading and managing. Given the unprecedented levels of challenges, dynamics and uncertainties that today’s organizations are exposed to, there is a need for a more integrative and sustainable approach to managing. Following the need for a reconsideration and revival of the meaning of wisdom, the editors explore vitalizing possibilities for the learning of wise practices in organizing and leading. This expansive range of domains where wisdom is currently being explored suggests a promising number of perspectives and possibilities for future inquiries and explorations into the nexus of wisdom and organization, leadership/management education and learning that benefits from cross-disciplinary synergies. This book will be of interest to those seeking to understand the growing significance of wisdom in relation to learning and teaching, especially in business and management education.
