PHRA MAHA VUTHICHAI VACHIRAMETHI / Translated by ORAYA SUTABUTR / Photos by SOMKID CHAIJITVANIT, The Bangkok Post, Sep 29, 2009 Learning the art of mindfulness can lead to a happier life Bangkok, Thailand -- Dharma can help manage anger. Usually we study about human resource management, risk management, time management and financial management, which are all concerned with external elements. But anger management concerns our inner self. When anger arises, we often do not know how to manage it and we become manipulated by it.

The Contributions Of Asian Buddhists And The Popularity Of Zen by http://www.bharatbhasha.com/
Burmese Buddhism has been attracting Western people for a long time through its specialization in Abhidhamma studies and meditation. Burmese contributors in this field can be represented by the Mahathera Ledi Sayadaw, whose numerous writings show a deep penetration of the respective subjects derived from his meditative experience. The Burmese tradition of Abhidhamma studies is still continued and made accessible to the West by outstanding Burmese scholars, such as Mahasi Sayadaw, U Titthila and U Narada.

Temporary monks for better society by anaka Perera, Asian Tribune, September 19, 2009
Colombo, Sri Lanka -- After six years, the largely negative attitude among many Sri Lankan Buddhists towards temporary ordination has undergone a welcome change. The credit for this achievement goes to the Buddhist Cultural Centre (BCC) Nedimala, Dehiwala, which arranged for lay Buddhists to become monks and nuns temporarily in 2003. The scheme has become highly successful attracting many young Buddhists to the BCC -run Dekanduwala Meditation Centre, Kahatapitiya, and Kananwila in Horana. The temporary ordination has been limited to a period of 14 days to make it easier for those doing jobs to obtain leave for the purpose.

To Drink, or Not to Drink? by Barbara's Buddhism Blog -http://buddhism.about.com September 7, 2009
According to Bikkhu Bodhi, the Fifth Precept translated from the Pali is, "I undertake the training rule to abstain from fermented and distilled intoxicants which are the basis for heedlessness." Mahayana doesn't seem to go by the Pali version. Translations vary, but the Mahayana version of the Fifth Precept more often calls for not abusing intoxicants. One translation I found of the Mahayana Brahmajala Sutra renders the Fifth Precept into a prohibition of selling intoxicants, although it doesn't say specifically not to drink. Clearly, we in Mahayana are a degenerate crew.

Reclining Buddhas by DAVID WILSON, The Star, August 15, 2009
Often vast, always mysterious, reclining Buddha statues sport enigmatic smiles. David Wilson digs around and discovers the secrets of these dazzling figures Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia -- Strictly speaking, they should not exist. Reclining Buddha statues could be condemned as idolatry because the Buddha asked that no images be carved in his likeness. So, at first, after he slipped away, artistically inclined devotees only paid tribute to facets of his identity — footprints, the chair he sat on, among other relics.
