Review: Women Of Wisdom buddhism through the eyes wide open of a wise woman.
Through lively anecdotes and stories this highly revered Buddhist meditation master and scholar tells about his life of study, retreat, and teaching. The formative events of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s life, and those insights and experiences that caused him to mature into the warm, brilliant, and highly realized meditation master and teacher he was, are deeply inspiring. The second half of the book comprises recollections by his wife; his grandson, Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche; Tenga Rinpoche; the Queen Mother of Bhutan; and many prominent teachers.
Using the traditional Tibetan Buddhist framework of the Four Reminders - the preciousness of human birth, the truth of impermanence, the reality of suffering, and the inescapability of karma - Khandro Rinpoche explains why and how we could all better use this short life to pursue a spiritual path and make the world a better place. The book includes contemplative exercises that encourage us to appreciate the tremendous potential of the human body and mind.
Blending contemporary and traditional perspectives, this wonderful book offers accessible and insightful guidance on the profound foundational practices of the Great Perfection. This groundbreaking work contains classic commentaries by the renowned Tibetan masters Jigme Lingpa and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, alongside a lively contemporary discussion by filmmaker, author and spiritual teacher Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse that discusses how to incorporate these ancient practices into the fast-paced lifestyle of the Western world. Also included are a lengthy introduction to the world of Tibetan Buddhism and its meditative practices, as well as the long and short preliminary practice liturgies and numerous appendices on the nine yanas and other topics.
The first Tibetan to attain complete enlightenment was in all probability the woman Yeshe Tsogyal, the closest disciple of Padmasambhava, the master who brought Buddhism to Tibet in the eighth century. This classical text is not only a biography but also an inspiring example of how the Buddha's teaching can be put into practice. Lady of the Lotus-Born interweaves profound Buddhist teachings with a colorful narrative that includes episodes of adventure, court intrigue, and personal searching. The book will appeal to students of Tibetan Buddhism and readers interested in the role of women in Buddhism and world religions.
This portable compendium will be cherished by students of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the many readers of such popular books as _The Art of Happiness_, _When Things Fall Apart_, _The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying_, and _Awakening the Buddha Within_. It features short inspirational selections and pithy quotations from the great masters of Tibetan Buddhism, past and present, including Milarepa, H. H. the Dalai Lama, Sogyal Rinpoche, Patrul Rinpoche, Ch gyam Trungpa, and others. Topics include cultivating compassion, letting go of ego, and developing a clear perception of our own true nature.
