    What if you could learn the ultimate teachings of Tibetan Buddhism as they were meant to be received - guided every step of the way by an experienced master? This practice, known as Mahamudra or "The Great Revelation", was once taught only to elite students in secluded monasteries and cloisters. Now Dr. Reginald Ray has created an unprecedented audio learning course to make this profoundly transformative path available to listeners everywhere, with Mahamudra for the Modern World.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you want to have your own retreat at a quiet place


    Would you be willing to try another book from Reginald A. Ray? Why or why not?

    If the narrator is another person. I have discovered for audio books, though i previously loved author narrated, you would focus more if the narrator is a professional.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Should not mumble under his breath

    Story

    What if you could cultivate the mind of a bodhisattva -- one who has dedicated one's life to the benefit of others? According to Pema Chödrön, best-selling author and American-born Buddhist nun, you can. On Bodhisattva Mind, she examines sheshin, or "guarding alertness", and the other qualities of mind we need to develop on the path to enlightenment.

    J. Cline says: "First Understanding of Buddhism"
    "Good balance of humour and driving home the points"

    What did you love best about Bodhisattva Mind?

    I like the very down to earth way pema uses in her lectures and how she relates them. She brings across the issues as very real and common


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bodhisattva Mind?

    That people will always have issues and criticism but the power is to learn to perceive it differently and learn from it and grow from it. People that are difficult are our teachers


    Which character – as performed by Pema Chodron – was your favorite?

    ?


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Your mind creates the world


    Any additional comments?

    It is my first audio book from pema... and i'm addicted now. Coming from asia, buddhism is usually taught in chinese and is hard to obtain teachings in english.
