Tibetan Buddhism from the Ground Up: A Practical Approach for Modern Life
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungHere at last is an organized overview of Tibetan Buddhism's teachings, beginning with the basic themes of the sutras -- the general discourses of the Buddha -- and continuing through the esoteric concepts and advanced practices of Tantra. Unlike other introductions to Tibetan Buddhism, "Tibetan Buddhism from the Ground Up" doesn't stop with theory and history, but relates timeless spiritual principles to the pressing issues of modern life, both in terms of daily experience and a uniquely Western world view. This fascinating, highly readable book asks neither unquestioning faith nor blind obedience to abstract concepts or religious beliefs. Rather, it challenges the reader to question and investigate life's issues on a personal level, in the light of an ancient and effective approach to the sufferings and joys of the human condition.
