The Power of Now

A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

To make the journey into the Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. From the very first page of this extraordinary book, we move rapidly into a significantly higher altitude where we breathe a lighter air. We become connected to the indestructible essence of our Being...

A New Earth

Awakening to your Life's purpose

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents readers with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Practicing the Power of Now

From the widely acclaimed best seller, The Power of Now, rises Practicing the Power of Now. Throughout The Power of Now, there are specific practices and clear keys that show us how to discover for ourselves the “grace, ease, and lightness” that come when we simply quiet our thoughts and see the world before us in the present moment.

Practicing the Power of Now is a carefully arranged series of excerpts from The Power of Now that directly gives us those exercises and keys. Read this book slowly, or even just open it at random, deepen your awareness by practicing the exercises, reflect on the words, reflect even on the space between the words, and – maybe over time, maybe immediately – you’ll discover something of life-changing significance. You’ll find the power, the ability to change and elevate not only your life, but your world as well.

It is here, now, in this moment: the sacred presence of your Being. It is here, now, not in some distant future: a place within us that always is and ever will be beyond the turmoil of life, a world of calm beyond words, of joy that has no opposite.

It is in your hands. Discover and practice the power of Now.

Stillness Speaks

When we connect to the Stillness within, we move beyond our active minds and emotions and discover great depths of lasting peace, contentment, and serenity.

In Stillness Speaks, we receive the essence of Eckhart’s teachings in short, simple pieces that anyone can easily understand. The book is organized into ten chapters whose subjects range from "Beyond the Thinking Mind" to "Suffering and the End of Suffering." Each chapter is a mosaic of individual entries, concise and complete in themselves, but profoundly transformative when read as a whole. As Eckhart says in the introduction to the book: "This is not a book to be read from cover to cover and then put away. Live with it, pick it up frequently, and, more importantly, put it down frequently, or spend more time holding it then reading it."

Stillness Speaks is organized into ten chapters whose subjects range from "Beyond the Thinking Mind" to "Suffering and the End of Suffering." Each chapter is a mosaic of individual entries, concise and complete in themselves, but profoundly transformative when read as a whole.

Eckhart Tolle understands the spiritual needs of our time. He draws from the essence of all spiritual traditions, expressing these truths in startlingly fresh new ways. The result is a book that is paradoxically both ancient and contemporary, filled with timely and powerful messages. Stillness Speaks can be no less than an awakening for readers willing to give the words a chance to work their quiet magic.

Oneness With All Life

This book is beautifully packaged with evocative artwork and design, Oneness with All Life highlights the most inspiring and beautiful insights of A New Earth.

In A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle describes how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. The purpose of this book is to bring about a shift in consciousness, or in his words, an awakening. An essential part of this awakening is the recognition of the ego, and our attachment to things, the past, and enemies. In this new edition, Eckhart Tolle has picked the essential phrases and paragraphs—the gems of the book—that he feels are most important.

Milton's Secret

Eckhart Tolle has a simple message for everyone—living in the Now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. With co-author Robert Friedman and illustrator Frank Riccio, Tolle now brings his message of the power of Now to children.

Milton's Secret is the charming story of Milton, a bright, cheerful boy, who learns to overcome his fear of bullies and other scary things that sometimes frighten children. Children follow Milton's adventures as he learns to stop projecting his past fears into the future—and live simply and happily in the moment.

Milton's Secret will not only appeal to the millions of readers of Tolle's other books, but also to any parent who wants to help their young children overcome typical childhood fears.

Guardians of Being

This wonderfully unique collaboration brings together two masters of their fields, joining original words by spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle with delightful illustrations by Patrick McDonnell, the creator of the acclaimed comic strip MUTTS. Every heartwarming page provokes thought, insight, and smiling reverence for all beings and each moment.

More than a collection of witty and charming drawings, the marriage of Patrick McDonnell’s art and Eckhart Tolle’s words conveys a profound love of nature, of animals, of humans, of all life-forms. Guardians of Being celebrates and reminds us of not only the oneness of all life but also the wonder and joy to be found in the present moment, amid the beauty we sometimes forget to notice all around us.

"It is a journey which must be taken completely alone, with neither wife, nor husband, nor books. You can set out on this journey only when you really see the truth that you have to walk completely alone- and then you are alone; not out of bitterness, not out of cynicism, not out of despair but because you see the fact that aloneness is absolutely necessary. It is this fact, and the perceiving of this fact, that sets one free to walk alone. The book, the savior, the teacher- they are yourself".

ලොවුතුරු දහම් පීඨය


සිධාර්ථ ගෞතමයාණන් මම ඇතුළු ලෝකය පිළිබදව පර්යේෂණයක් කළහ. එමගින් ප්රත්යක්ෂ අත්දැකීමක් ලැබුහ.එම ගැබුරු අත්දැකීම මෙසේ ඉදිරිපත් කළහ. "ප්රක්ඥාවන්තයනි",

මෙහි සිතක්ද නැත, කයක්ද නැත, එමනිසා "මම" කියා අයෙකුද නැත. මෙවැනි ලෝකයක් නැත. පරලොවක් නැත, ඉරක්, හඳක් නැත, මේ සියල්ල අවිද්යාව නිසා සකස් කරගත් මිත්යවන්ය. මෙම මිත්යාධර්ම මොහොතක් මොහොතක් පාසා සමුදය වෙයි. එම සමුදය තුලම නිරෝද වෙයි. එම නිරෝදය එම මොහොත තුලම ප්රඥාවෙන් දකිමින්යන්න. එසේ කරගෙන යාමේදී එක් ක්ෂණයක දී මෙම ලෝකනිරෝඩය ප්රත්යක්ෂවම අත්දැකිය හැකිය. එය සියලෙහි නිවීම දැකීම නොහොත් නිවන් දැකීම නම් වෙයි" යනු එම ගැඹුරු කරුණු දැක්වීමයි.

වසර ගණනාවක්පුරා ගැඹුරු පර්යේෂණයක් කරමින් එම දහම් මග අධ්යනය කලෙමි. එම ප්රතිපතියෙහි පිහිටියෙමි. එම ක්ෂණයක ලෝක නිරෝඩය ප්රත්යක්ෂවම අත්දුටුවෙමි. මෙහි සිතක්, කයක්, හෝ මමෙකු නැතිබව, මෙලොවක්, පරලොවක්, ඉරක්, හඳක් නැතිබව, මේ සියල මිත්යාවක් බව ප්රත්ය්ක්ෂවම අවබෝධ කලෙමි.

එමම කරුණු ඉදිරිපත් කිරීම, එම අත්දැකීම පිලිබඳවය. මෙම ගැඹුරු දහම් කරුණු ඔබත් අද්යනය කරන. එම ප්රතිපතියෙහි පිහිටන්න. මෙම අසිරිමත් අත්දැකීම ලබමින් මා කියන තැනට ඇවිත් බලන්න. සසර දුක නිවාගන්නා ලෙස මැයින් ඇරයුම් කෙරේ.

Non Time Gotama Vision- Kularatna Nakkawatta

Yatha. bhuta nana dassana

Knowledge of vision of things as -they truly are.

Yoniso manasikara

Thorough attention, wise consideration.

The world is a Linage of thoughts

That die within the arising itself

Thus the Buddha advised us to realize

The Truth by seeing the reality of the world,

From within oneself.

The exalted, Fully Enlightened Lord Buddha, the Tathagata is the most noble one who has introduced an incomparable profound philosophy which has overcome all the visions, laws and theories of the philosophers ever born in the world.

This nonlogical vision is an eternal untime Truth which remains unchanged at the beginning called the past. at the middle called the present and at the end called the future; and also was unchanged by any philosopher in the past and is not disproved

by any intellectual in the present and would be undeniable by any philosopher in the future.

This doctrine of Dependent origination (paticca samuppāda) or the doctrine of Cause and Effect which was disclosed through the Noble Research under the motto of "in search of what is called the Truth" (kin sachcha gavēsi) reveals profoundly that the cause and requisite all arise together at the same time and cease or vanish simultaneously with the arising itself.

This philosophy which is also known as the cessation of Cause and Effect, has cleared neatly that the ignorance (avijja) is the cause and then the effect would be the thought which is born because of the ignorance and when the effect known as as

the thought, ceases within the arising itself, the cause which is named ignorance which was the base to create that effect named thought too is subjected to cessation and this cessation is an instant occurrence which is inapplicable with the chronology of past, present and future, and this state of instant simultaneous termination of Cause and Effect or the Ultimate liberation is the Nibbana.
