In “Awakening The Luminous Mind: Tibetan Meditation for Inner Peace and Joy“, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche speaks the timeless wisdom of Dharma using a contemporary lexicon. He shares the path of taking refuge and the blissful union with our real self.
He explains refuge can be taken:
– in the stillness of the body: when agitation has chosen us, we can be grateful for this opportunity to take refuge in stillness;
– through the silence of speak: when the complaining mindset has chosen us, we can be grateful for this opportunity to take refuge in silence;
– through the spaciousness of the mind: when our mind feels overwhelmed, we can be grateful for this opportunity to give ourselves the space we already are.
With guided meditations you can read and listen to, using the complimentary CD offered with the book, This is one of the most concise and clear introductions to uniting with Dzogchen, our real mind.
