"Mindfulness in plain english" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

"Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

AS for websites this is a great one for Theravada information

Just thought id share what works have greatly helped my practice, no doubt most of you will most likely be aware of most of these but thought i would share incase some are new and would benefit

Greetings Craig,

Thanks for sharing.

Metta,
Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)

Must-read.
Uppādā vā Tathāgatānaṃ anuppādā vā Tathāgatānaṃ, ṭhitāva sā dhātu dhammaṭṭhitatā dhammaniyāmatā idappaccayatā. Taṃ Tathāgato abhisam­buj­jhati abhisameti. Abhisam­bujjhitvā abhisametvā ācikkhati deseti paññāpeti paṭṭhapeti vivarati vibhajati uttānīkaroti. ‘Passathā’ti cāha: ‘avijjāpaccayā, bhikkhave, saṅkhārā’. Iti kho, bhikkhave, yā tatra tathatā avitathatā anaññathatā idappaccayatā ayaṃ vuccati, bhikkhave, paṭic­ca­samup­pādo.
