Carefree Dignity: Discourses on Training in the Nature of Mind Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tsoknyi Rinpoche is a reincarnate lama educated in the Tibetan Buddhist

tradition. He has been teaching students from around the world since 1990.

“Being carefree, you can fit in anywhere. If youre not carefree you keep

on bumping up against things. Your life becomes so narrow, so tight; it

gets very claustrophobic. Carefree means being wide open from within,

not constricted. Carefree doesnt mean careless. It is not that you dont

care about others, not that you dont have compassion or are unfriendly.

Carefree is being really simple, from the inside. Dignity is not conceit

but rather what shines forth from this carefree confidence.”

—Tsoknyi Rinpoche

Tsoknyi Rinpoches teaching style embodies a vividness that is a play

between himself and his audience. His immediateness includes gestures

and examples that entice us to understanding. Through guided meditations

he offers direct participation as a delightful enhancement to our

practice. Simple, straightforward and profound, Carefree Dignity is a

book that captivates our intellect while enriching our awareness.
