Entering the Dharma-Door of Buddha-Mindfulness Buddha-mindfulness, is one of the most widely practiced Buddhist cultivation methods for enhancing meditative concentration and securing rebirth in Buddha’s pure lands. This book elucidates five different levels of Buddha-mindfulness—from phenomena-based methods, such as recitation of Buddha’s name, to Buddha-mindfulness in Ultimate Reality, a principle-based method. The author emphasizes that practitioners should adjust and fine-tune their techniques as their level of mental concentration deepens, so that they can eventually rely on this power to achieve awakening to the True Mind and gain direct comprehension of the Ultimate Reality.

About Venerable Xiao Pingshi Born in 1944, Venerable Master Xiao Pingshi was raised in a farming family in central Taiwan. Seeking answers to the truth of human existence, he became a committed Buddhist disciple and practitioner in his forties and in 1990, attained awakening to the True Mind via Chan contemplation and the aid of an incredible Dharma-door called “signless Buddha-mindfulness.” In 1997, Master Xiao established the Buddhist True Enlightenment Practitioners Association in order to offer different levels of Dharma classes to practitioners. Presently, the Association’s practice centers have reached all major cities of Taiwan, and beyond to Hong Kong and the United States. Since the founding of the Association, Master Xiao has been giving weekly lecture on important Buddhist scriptures. To elucidate the Buddha Dharma and its stages of cultivation for all interested learners, Master Xiao has also published more than a hundred books on a wide range of Buddhist subjects. These include the combined cultivation of Chan and Pure Land, the realization of the Path to Liberation expounded in the Agamas, the analysis of the profound Middle-Way teachings and the exegesis of key Consciousness-Only scriptures. All of his books emphasize the points that Buddhism is a path of personal realization and that realization can only come through a continual process of listening to, contemplating, and actual practice of the Buddha Dharma.
