Buddhism

Shakyamuni

Do not believe in anything
simply because you have heard it.

Do not believe in anything
simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.

Do not believe in anything
simply because it is found written in your religious books.

Do not believe in anything
merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.

Do not believe in traditions
because they have been handed down for many generations.

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

~ The Buddha [Kalama Sutra]

Dharma

Shakyamuni - Japan styleI shall post here my entire collection of books & other materials concerned to Buddha Dharma. It may take a long time, since the books must be scanned and converted to pdf's, and audios to mp4's - so i could upload them to youtube for free.

At this moment (2014-12-24) there is over three thousands volumes in my library (some in polish, few in german, but vast majority in english) all dharma-related ... and still counting. Posting one book a day would take almost seven years. Sounds not too encouraging and it equals hundreds of pages to scan daily - a lot of work. But quite pleasant and useful. Fortunately.

So this probably will take whole rest of my life - assuming optimistically, that i will live long enough … and that there will be still few creatures, able to read and make good use of this ;)

Anyway, this page will be updated frequently.
Let it bring unlimited advantage to all sentient beings.
