The Bodhicharya Publications team are very happy to announce the publication at this time of a new Heart Wisdom volume of Rinpoche’s teachings. ‘Meeting Challenges: Unshaken by Life’s Ups and Downs’ contains Rinpoche’s commentary on a text by the Third Do Drupchen Rinpoche all about bringing happiness and unhappiness onto our paths. Thus it provides a succinct teaching on the very essence of Dharma practice in our own lives and how to go about it.
When times are hard and we have challenges, how can we meet them in a good way; in a way that will not create further unnecessary suffering for ourselves or others? Since we all have our own challenges in life, this really is an extraordinarily useful teaching. But, similarly, how can we take the joyful times in our lives so they do not become a cause for problems (when they pass, as all things must, for example)? Learning these techniques will offer us a path towards true equanimity and peace.
Books will be despatched early in the New Year.
Apart from the Lazy Lama series (7 books now) and a book of Rinpoche’s stories (Parables from the Heart), we now publish 9 Heart Wisdom books. They cover topics such as Emptiness (Like Dreams and Clouds), Dealing with Emotions, Vajrasattva practice and purification (Being Pure) and Kindness and Compassion (Radiance of the Heart).
These can all be ordered from the Bodhicharya online Book Shop. Orders of 10 or more books qualify for a 35% discount.
With our very best wishes that these books may inspire and uplift you through difficult times, and good ones too.
