CORE TEACHINGS OF TIBETAN BUDDHISM
With extraordinary grace and insight, The Dalai Lama shows how Tibetan Buddhist teachings on compassion can be practised in our daily lives, through simple meditations that relate directly to past and present relationships. While many world religions have mind-transforming or purifying techniques, Buddhists have placed particular emphasis on these practises for more than 2000 years. Basing his discussion on a fifteenth-century Buddhist text, the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people gives clear, highly accessible explanations of these methods and how they can be incorporated into the busy rhythms of modern life. The Dalai Lama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 and is the author of two memoirs and several books on Buddhism.
'Awakening the Mind, Lightening the Heart ' is the second volume in the Library of Tibet series, which was founded in order to preserve and disseminate the cultural heritage of Tibet. The volumes of the Library will cover Tibetan history and culture, from meditation practices to social history. Volume Editor Donald S. Lopez is Professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies as the University of Michigan. John F. Avedon, General Series Editor of the Library, is the author of 'In Exile from the Land of Snows,' the definitive history of modern Tibet.
“We can achieve enlightenment only through the practice of meditation without it there is no way we can transform our minds.”
