Summary "The Thirty-seven Aids to Enlightenment are a set of fundamental Buddhist teachings in the form of a list. The list's seeming simplicity belies the fact that it is actually a kind of road map to enlightenment for anyone who follows it with diligence and sincerity. The Thirty-seven Aids comprise seven groups of practices conducive to awakening. Each of the seven groups is itself a list of enlightenment factors, which add up to a total of thirty-seven: (1) The Four Foundations of Mindfulness, (2) The Four Proper Exertions, (3) The Four Steps to Magical Powers, (4) The Five Roots, (5) The Five Powers, (6) The Seven Factors of Enlightenment, and (7) The Noble Eightfold Path. Master Sheng Yen's down-to-earth teachings take the reader on a progression through each of the practices, illustrating how they relate to the reader's own path toward enlightenment." ""Chan Master Sheng Yen is a great teacher:"-Master Thich Nhat Hanh" ""Master Sheng Yen is a true spiritual practitioner of deep and broad learning."-H.H. the Dalai Lama"--BOOK JACKET.
Subject Enlightenment (Buddhism) -- Requisites.
