Bodhipaksa will launch his new book, “Living as a River,” Tuesday October 12th at Aryaloka Buddhist Center in Newmarket NH. Doors 6:45, Meditation 7:00, Book Launch with excerpts read by the author, 8:00pm.
What happens when we embrace the flow of life? We stop suffering. In “Living as a River,” Bodhipaksa conducts a masterful investigation of the nature of self, with an eloquent blend of current science and time-honored spiritual insight meant to free us from the fear of impermanence in a world defined by change.
The primary vehicle for this journey is Buddhism’s traditional Six Element Practice, a deconstructive process of deep reflection that helps us let go of the belief in a separate, static self—the root of unhappiness. Bodhipaksa takes readers through a systematic analysis of the self that supports the realization of:
- A sense of spaciousness and expansiveness that transcends the limitations of the physical body
- Profound gratitude, awe, and a feeling of belonging as we witness the extent of our connectedness with the universe
- Freedom from the psychological burden caused by clinging to a limited identity
- The relaxed experience of “consciousness, pure and bright”
Engrossing and incisive, “Living as a River” is at once an empowering guide and a meditative practice to overcome the fear of change and align with the natural unfolding of creation.
For those who would like to purchase Bodhipaksa’s new book, copies are available now in the Aryaloka bookstore, and will be on sale during the book launch.
