From the author of The Healing Power of Mind, an accessible guide to Tibetan Buddhist loving-kindness meditation—with downloadable guided meditations.
All Buddhist traditions teach that the practice of loving-kindness can transform our lives. Here, Tulku Thondup offers a step-by-step guide to a Tibetan Buddhist approach to loving-kindness meditation, which focuses on connecting to Avalokitesvara, the bodhisattva of compassion. Dividing the practice into twelve simple steps, this book provides everything readers need to uncover their innate joy and compassion. The accompanying downloadable audio program guides meditators through the steps of visualizing Avalokitesvara, generating devotion to the ideals he embodies, and radiating loving-kindness to all beings in the universe.Author BioTulku Thondup Rinpoche was born in East Tibet and was recognized to be a tulku at age five.
