Heart Jewel: The Essential Practices of Kadampa Buddhism

by

Heart Jewel: The Essential Practices of Kadampa Buddhism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

HEART JEWEL, 2E, is the only reference in English that explains clearly and in detail how to practice the uncommon Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa and the Dharma Protector practice of Dorje Shugdan.

Synopsis:

Gesh Kelsang presents two essential practices of Kadampa Buddhism, the popular Mayayana Buddhist tradition that derives from the Tibetan teacher Je Tsongkhapa. The first practice is relying upon a Spiritual Guide, and the second is relying upon an enlightened Dharma Protector.

Synopsis:

Kadampa Buddhism is becoming increasingly popular as a clear and practical spiritual path for the contemporary practitioner. Originating with the special presentation of Mahayana Buddhism by the great Buddhist masters Atisha and Je Tsongkhapa, Kadampa Buddhism makes the path to enlightenment accessible to the modern world and explains clearly how to transform our lives into the spiritual path. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, a meditation master of this living tradition, explains two essential spiritual practices.

The first is a special meditation practice in conjunction with Je Tsongkhapa, through which we can receive blessings and gain the realizations of the path to enlightenment. The second is meditation on the Buddha of Wisdom in the aspect of a Dharma Protector, whereby we gain the necessary internal strength to overcome all obstacles to our spiritual practice.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 174-176) and index.
