Banyen's Description: 

When the Buddha set in motion the wheel of Dharma, he knew that the teaching he gave was inexhaustible—that every future generation would find its own skillful ways to convey it to the hearts and minds of those ready to hear. “Dedicated to the generation of teachers who have so beautifully carried the lamp of the Dharma to the West,” The Buddha Is Still Teaching is testimony to the fulfillment of that promise today. The selections it contains, from today’s most highly regarded contemporary Buddhist teachers, bring the Dharma eloquently to life for us in our own time, place, and culture. They demonstrate that two and a half millennia have done nothing to diminish the freshness of the Buddhist teachings, or their universal applicability to our lives.

The presentation of these teachings begins with teachers who focus on right understanding and mindfulness, then moves on to the heart of compassion and forgiveness. Next are ways to work with obstacles, and illuminated passages on impermanence, healing, death, emptiness, karma, and liberation. The teachings conclude with Dharma in daily life, engaged Buddhism, and a series of modern texts on meditation practice.

Contributors include Ajahn Chah, Joko Beck, Sylvia Boorstein, Tara Brach, Pema Chödrön, the Dalai Lama, Ram Dass, Mark Epstein, Norman Fischer, Natalie Goldberg, Joseph Goldstein, Dilgo Khyentse, Jack Kornfield, Noah Levine, Stephen Levine, Sakyong Mipham, Sharon Salzberg, Suzuki Roshi, Robert Thurman, Thich Nhat Hanh, Tulku Thondup, and others.

In this simple volume, you will find beautiful invocations of generosity; celebrations of courage; and practices to quiet the mind, transform difficulties, and liberate the spirit. You will even find some words spoken by Gandhi and Martin Luther King that echo those of the Buddha.
