Breathe, You Are Alive: The Sutra on the Full Awareness of Breathing – Thich Nhat Hanh

In his book Breathe, You Are Alive: The Sutra on the Full Awareness of Breathing, Thich Nhat Hanh supplies a commentary on the Anapanasati Sutta. I would recommend the book to anyone interested in learning how to achieve a state of well-being and health.

Baraka (1992)

Great “movie” about human life and religion. I say “movie” because Baraka has “no plot, no dialogue, no actors.”  It contains numerous religious ceremonies and peoples which I never knew existed. The visuals are stunning and I would suggest watching the Blu-Ray version. Really surprising that it only earned $1.3 million in the box office.
Check out the trailer here. Purchase the Blu-Ray here.

Ode to the World

Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilizations – Graham Hancock

In Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization, Hancock raises an excellent point — sea levels in ancient times were mush lower than they are now. Thus, many ruins may lie under the water a theme which he fully explores in this novel. The novel is a bit lengthy.

The Way of Zen – Alan Watts

The Way of Zen, by Alan Watts, introduces the western mind to the ideas of Zen. The book does a great job, almost as good as any Zen master. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Zen and its history.
