Buddhism and the Natural Mind
By: Doris Wolter
This collection of 31 essays by 21 teachers of Tibetan Buddhism, both Western teachers and Tibetan lamas, provides readers a multifaceted glimpse of the Buddhist practice within the Dzogchen tradition. Sogyal Rinpoche, author of the best-selling Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, contributed seven of the teachings here, but the collection also includes teachings from the Dalai Lama, Ringu Tulku, Francesca Freemantle, Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, Dzogchen Pönlop Rinpoche, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, and many others. Three major sections cover Aspects of the Buddhist Path, Authentic Buddhism Today, and Bringing the Transcendent into Everyday Life. From basic advice on turning the mind toward spiritual concerns to expressions of the highest insights on mind and reality, readers will discover how to integrate Buddhist ideas and practices into the activities and experiences that make up our day-to-day lives. The book includes useful notes, sources, a glossary, an index, and contributor biographies.
