The Meditator?s Nest: Building a spiritual practice (Oral teachings on the essentials of the Buddhist path)
Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin
Drawing from his scholastic and contemplative training, as well as his personal understanding of modern life, Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin offers excellent guidance to both beginners and experienced practitioners on the Buddha?s way.
Based on the pith instructions transmitted in the Sakya tradition, such as the Lamdr? teachings on The Three Visions and the instructions on Parting from the Four Attachments, as well as the Indian classics of Buddhist philosophy like Shantideva?s The Way of the Bodhisattva and Chandrakirti?s Introduction to the Middle Way, the teachings offered in this book show us how to integrate both elements – theory and practice – in a most meaningful way on our path.
Together with The Meditator?s Nest , Vol. 2: A Mahayana Meditation Manual, this book forms a set, a precious companion for those travelling the path to awakening.
