For centuries, Tibetan Lamas have transmitted spiritual knowledge through the teachings of mind-training meditation, although many of these teachings remain relatively unknown in the West. Dagsay Tulku Rinpoche now shares these rare jewels of Tibetan wisdom in an easy and accessible manner, leading the Western reader toward the path of true happiness.
Dagsay Tulku's teachings range from introductory sessions designed to create an oasis of calmness in daily life to deep practices for cleansing and healing. He also offers traditional meditations to prepare for death, the ultimate transition. True to the rich sensory nature of Tibetan Buddhism, these meditations are enhanced with instructions for relaxing massage and an accompanying 60-minute CD of mantras.
Meditation can be put to a variety of uses, and in The Practice of Tibetan Meditation Dagsay Tulku Rinpoche provides a complete tool kit for tuning up your life. Identified at a young age as the reincarnation of a famous lama, Dagsay went on to graduate first in his class from an Indian university and then to head a Tibetan refugee community in Switzerland, where he has been teaching these meditations to Westerners for nearly four decades. A firm believer in mind/body interaction and the power of suggestion, Dagsay offers meditations on purifying nectar, on inner fire, and on personal relationships, among others, that can relieve physical ailments, calm emotions, and lead to overall well-being. A unique aspect of Dagsay's teachings is that many of his meditations incorporate physical exercises, such as simple bends, arm gestures, and mudras. Including a CD of mantras for further inspiration, The Practice of Tibetan Meditation is just the thing to get you on the path to well-being of both mind and body. --Brian Bruya
