Description
"We've all heard platitudes cultivating love and compassion but how can we really cultivate these qualities in ourselves and-crucially - share them in our world? Mind Frees Mind provides a proven method for doing so. 1,000 years ago the Indian saint Atisha endured great hardship through long land and sea journeys to bring these teachings, implicit in the very first teachings of the Buddha, to Tibet where they flourished and became a set of coherent practices. Khentrul Rinpoche introduces readers to one of essential texts from this genre, the Seven Key Points of Mind Training. This short, pithy work is taught widely by revered teachers like the Dalai Lama, Chogyam Trungpa, Pema Chodron and more. Like them, Khentrul Rinpoche comes from the direct teaching tradition of these practices and learned them from his teachers who endured innumerable hardships during the Chinese cultural revolution. Rinpoche was moved by the ability of these teachers who, like alchemists, were able to take their pain and suffering endured in Chinese prisons and turn it into something good, using the very techniques he shares in this book. This wisdom is accessible to anyone seeking inner transformation-whether Buddhist or not. As Khentrul Rinpoche states, "Peace and happiness can be attained, but not by searching for something in the outside world. They start within us then extend out to the entire globe.""--,Provided by publisher.
