Prinsen som våknet

Solum Forlag, Oslo 1999, ISBN 82-560-1163-7

Prinsen som våknet (The Prince who woke up) is the story of the Buddha, in Norwegian, told in simple and vivid language for young people. The book tells how he was born and grew up, how he woke up to reality and became a Buddha, and how he instituted a monastic order.

Prinsen som våknet also shows the Buddha as a teacher, and gives an outline of his teachings, emphasizing the humanist and ethical aspects.

Although not written solely as a texbook, it can also be used in school. The stories are based upon the old Pali and Sanskrit texts, but freely rendered and illustrated in colours and b&w by Else K.-H. Baugh, in order to make the subject better available to young readers.

Here you may read a few chapters from Prinsen som våknet.

is an introduction to mindfulness (satipatthana) or insight meditation (vipassana). This method can help us to a better understanding of ourselves and our reality.

The book is based on years of studies of theory and practice, and also on my own experiences with this method. Its emphasis lies on giving a simple and practical introduction, so that those who are not able to study under a teacher, can start practicing on their own.
