Access to Insight: Readings in Theravada Buddhism

By Appmagination, LLCreleased on:2010-01-09T03:35:05Z

Not so much "an eBook" as a huge library of eBooks, this might just be the best application about Buddhism on the App Store!

This is the entire offline version of John Bullitt's widely recognized and highly recommended Access to Insight ( web site, a massive compilation of material about Theravada Buddhism and Buddhism in general.

Herein are contained over 1,000 *actual suttas* (skt: 'sutras') from the Tipitaka (body of Buddhist canonical texts) translated into contemporary English with scholarly rigor and precision by recognized subject domain experts. Suttas are not simply modern essays and interpretations; they are actual written discourses historically attributed to Siddhartha Gotama, the Buddha, who founded Buddhism nearly 2,500 years ago.

A massive and thorough collection of essays by world-renound monks and scholars on the subjects of Buddhist philosophy, meditation, and practice is also included.

This is high quality material that is suitable reading for personal interest or academic study. Much of the material has also been published in printed form.

To aid the reader, indexes are available by subject, author, title, sutta title, proper name of historical figure, simile/metaphor, and even traditional numerical association.

Usability Features of the Software

The reader works much like a web browser. Double tap on the screen to hide or show the toolbar and status bar. Landscape and portrait modes are supported, as are bookmarks which save the current scroll position of the current page. This application uses Appmagination's eReadery™ SDK and new features will be added to this application as they are added to the SDK.

Network access not required!

Except for the search and audio features, network access is not required. The full text is stored locally on your iPhone OS device.


Many of the sutta translations also link to iPhone accessible online audio readings on

Application Size

The size of the application is around 18MB in compressed form, and 55MB installed. That may seem large, but the content is almost purely plain text. So for the amount of information, the storage requirements are very small.

Please Leave a Review!

Please leave a rating and a review. The more people find this application helpful, the more often it will receive updates and new features.

Excerpts from "What is Access to Insight?" by site owner John T. Bullitt:

"Access to Insight is an Internet website dedicated to providing accurate, reliable, and useful information concerning the practice and study of Theravada Buddhism, as it has been handed down to us through both the written word of the Pali canon and the living example of the Sangha."

"The readings assembled here represent just a selection of the Buddha's teachings. These are the ones that, over the years, I've personally found to be helpful in deepening an understanding of Dhamma practice. This collection is not meant to be an exhaustive archive of Theravada Buddhist texts."

"Everything available at Access to Insight is offered in full cooperation with the authors, translators, and publishers concerned, with the clear understanding that none of it is to be sold. Please help yourself to whatever you find useful."

Buddhist Meditation(LITE)

By Lepeng Lireleased on:2010-12-03T04:14:12Z

Enrich your hearts with Buddhist Melodies...

Buddhist Meditation is the music created for or inspired by Buddhism and part of Buddhist art. Chinese Buddhist Music utilizes a rich variety of musical instruments during chants and hymns. Since these instruments are used in the propagation of Buddhist teachings, they are collectively named Dharma instruments. Instruments such as the gong, large bell (ch. qing), large drum (ch. gu), wooden fish, small cymbals, large cymbals and Chinese tambourine punctuate both Chinese folk and Buddhist Music. In modern practice, Chinese Buddhist Music is frequently accompanied by a variety of Chinese orchestral instruments, piano, or traditional European symphony orchestras.

Buddhist melodies are characterized as being strong, but not fierce; soft, but not weak; pure, but not dry; still, but not sluggish, and able to help purify the hearts of listeners. By listening it, you can enrich and reenergize your hearts, reach the most remote places and overcome the limitations of time and distance, as well as differences in cultural backgrounds and nationalities.

11 soul-stirring Buddhist melodies are included in the full version Buddhist Meditation. Only five of them are included in this FREE version.

Buddhism and the Business World

By Orange Tip Editionsreleased on:2009-12-08T08:00:00Z

The Buddhist Way to Deal with Business

The business world sees everyone as potential customers and uses advertisement to influence consumption behavior. In consumeristic society, human desires are transformed into human needs, and endless consumption causes harm to the genuine well-being of life, society, and environment. Buddhist teaching is not limited to the monastic life, but also applicable to all activities in life, including how to deal with business.

Excerpted from the eBook
"Businesses have used advertisement to turn many unnecessary things into necessities. They have transformed human desires into human needs; this is why we have to develop people."

"People in business should also know what real success is. Success in business or economics is not merely about satisfying the desires of people but to bring about the well-being of mankind."

Bhikkhu P.A.Payutto
Understanding the Dhamma's sublime qualities and applying the age-old virtues to modern day's problem require exceptional skills. Bikkhu P.A. Payutto is such a scholar. A Buddhist monk of Theravada tradition in Thailand, the venerable is a recipient of UNESCO's Prize for Peace Education in 1994. His extensive teachings and writings apply essential wisdom of the Dhamma to present day's problems such as world peace, politics, economics, business, education, workplace, society, health, family, love, and self-improvement.

Transform Your Life: A Year of Awareness Practice by Cheri Huber

By Maks and Pashareleased on:2010-07-20T07:00:00Z

Transform Your Life is 365 days of inspirational quotes, encouragement, and daily assignments supporting awareness practice. Few things in life help us to be awake and aware. Transform Your Life is day-in-day-out reminders to keep focused on compassionate self-acceptance, not believing the voices of conditioning.

Visithttp://www.livingcompassion.orgfor more information and to purchase the book Transform Your Life and other books by Cheri Huber.

Chosen for impact, clarity, and humor, these one-per-day quotations come from a wide variety of sources: Zen masters; Christian and Sufi mystics; Eastern and Western philosophers; poets ancient and modern; and living artists, writers, and comedians. Each entry also contains a question to prompt self-examination, making the calendar a year-long course in fending off destructive thoughts and finding inner certainty.


"Awareness practice" is practicing living in conscious compassionate awareness rather than identifying the antics of conditioned mind as yourself. As a child, when you were being socialized, you learned to think, feel, say and do specific things relative to circumstances. "Conditioned mind" is the endless stream of habitual thoughts that go through your head as a result of being socialized. We weren't all socialized the same, obviously, but we did all learn to react to life in ways that, we believed, would ensure survival. Now, as adults, we are still reacting to life from a child's survival system - we are still surviving childhood!

Believing that "who you are" is your conditioned mind (your thoughts and reactions to life learned in childhood) is an enormous hindrance to living authentically in the moment. Awareness practice is the process of discovering those no-longer-helpful reactions, dropping them, and living free and joyously.

In lovingkindness,


Read day by day; don't read ahead.
Do each assignment in turn.


Use reminders.
Enroll your friends and follow Transform Your Life book as a group.
Keep a journal of awareness.
If you quit, start again.
Repeat each year.
