Jürgen Wagner

The Buddhist Path

To get out of one’s hamster wheel
and release one’s fixations
is the way of he Buddha

To avoid extremes
and to keep the middle way
is the line of the Buddha

To sit upright
and be silent like a quiet, clear lake
is the spirit of the Buddha

To detach from the outer world
and free oneself from wanting and desiring
is the peace of the Buddha

To bring one's light into the world
out of inner freedom
is the work of a Buddha

To be there for the welfare of all beings,
mindful and compassionate,
is the destination of an awakened one

Meditationen über Gelassenheit von Jürgen Wagner

Der Zugang des Menschen zu seinem Wesen im Anschluss an Martin Heidegger und Meister Eckhart

Meister Eckhart und Martin Heidegger vereinigen auf ihre Weise Frömmigkeit und Denken. Beide bringen ans Licht, dass es in der Gelassenheit noch um mehr geht als um eine nützliche Tugend zur Stressbewältigung. So möchte dieses Buch dazu beitragen, dass wir westliche Menschen im Bewusstsein unserer Tradition u n s e r e n Weg zur Gelassenheit finden und gehen können. Die Begegnung mit anderen Wegen schließt dies nicht aus, sondern ein.
