Practical Buddhism - Advice on the Practice of Buddhism

In this section we present essays, study guides and practical advice on the practice of Buddhist Dhamma, commonly known as Vinaya in Buddhist parlance, by both the lay  Buddhists, new initiates and experienced bhikkhus. Buddhism is essentially a religion of the mind. Mindfulness and meditation are the most talked about subject in the practice of Buddhism on the eightfold path for the final deliverance from the bondage of birth and death. Most of the articles in this section are written by venerable Buddhist monks for free distribution out of love and compassion for the humanity. Even if we do not practice this religion, some of the essays in this section can be immensely beneficial for achieving inner peace and equanimity of the mind by practicing mindfulness.
