AbstractTulku Thondup Rinpoche has published many books on Tibetan Buddhism, including Masters of Meditation and Miracles, Enlightened Journey, and The Practice of Dzogchen. He is a former visiting scholar at Harvard University and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
This practical guide, designed for anyone wishing to find peace and heal worry, stress, and physical suffering, features simple exercises and meditations from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Thondup provides a lucid overview of the principles of healing meditation, then provides 48 specific exercises for healing various mental and physical problems.
The true nature of our minds is enlightened and peaceful, as the depth of the ocean is calm and clear. But when we mentally grasp and emotionally cling to our wants and worries with all our energy, we lose our own enlightened freedom and healing power, only to gain stress and exhaustion, suffering and overexcitement, like the turbulent waves rolling on the surface of the ocean. Our minds possess the power to heal pain and stress, and to blossom into peace and joy, by loosening the clinging attitudes that Buddhists call "grasping at self." If we apply the mind's healing power, we can heal not only our mental and emotional afflictions, but physical problems also. This book is an invitation to awaken the healing power of mind through inspiring images and sounds, mindful movements, positive perceptions, soothing feelings, trusting confidence, and the realization of openness. The healing principle on which these exercises are based is the universal nature and omnipresent power envisioned in Mahayana Buddhism. Yet for healing, we don't have to be believers in any particular faith. We can heal body and mind simply by being what we truly are, and by allowing our own natural healing qualities to manifest: a peaceful and open mind, a loving and positive attitude, and warm, joyful energy in a state of balance and harmony.
"Thondup's book is a rich survey of the healing resources inherent in Nyingma Buddhism. . . . Thondup's book is a rare and invaluable guide to an ancient Tibetan treasure."-Publishers Weekly"Tulku Thondup seems to have done for Tibetan Buddhism what Shunryu Suzuki Roshi did for Zen. Like Suzuki'sZen Mind, Beginners Mind,Thondup's book is deceptively simple-the work of a great teacher who has penetrated this material so deeply he can present it with a clarity that spiritual seekers of any level can grasp. What's more, you don't have to be a Buddhist to findThe Healing Power of Mindlife-transforming."-New Age Journal
