I say: In the silence of my open field, face clear, face colorful; dancing or sitting, it is still the same body. Also available in the Wisdom Culture Series are Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s The Power of Mantra and The Swift Path, translated by Szegee Toh. Although my dad was good at explaining things, and I'm grateful to him for that, it's my mother's witty quips that have stayed with me down the years and this book is like that. One hundred Koans were selected (vaguely similar to the parables of Christian tradition, but the tales end in mysteries whose deeper meanings are best found through focussed meditation). Scheduled recording means picking a set time period during which you would like the unit to make vide recordings.

In The Hidden Lamp we meet all kinds of people on the spiritual path, not just monks and nuns and teachers but also husbands and wives, teenagers, hermits, cooks, courtesans, and iron-willed grandmothers. When we face the mirror of zazen, our minds tend to face ourselves as objects first—our skin color, age, gender, sexual orientation—all the ways we are embodied and move in the world.

In Ultimate Healing , internationally renowned meditation master Lama Zopa Rinpoche helps us to recognize the root of illness and gives us the tools to create our future happiness. This book is quite an achievement and is relevant to everyone, of whatever persuasion, as it causes you to question yourself and your hidden motives as opposed to your professed moral outlook. Doing a mental puzzle such as an optical illusion or brain teasers, can give your brain a good workout – which is great for concentration, cognitive function and boosting your brain power. Buddhist history is rife with teachings and stories of women-it's just that they've been hidden for centuries.This revolutionary book brings together many teaching stories that were hidden for centuries, unknown until this volume. In the style of a quote-a-day collection, this book from Wisdom’s bestselling author Joanne Cacciatore distills down the award-winning book Bearing the Unbearable into easy-to-access small chunks, and includes much brand-new material, including new prose and poems from Dr.
