In The Meditation Summit: Volume II, Sounds True publisher and founder Tami Simon speaks with 10 leading meditation teachers about their personal understanding of this practice - each with a complete guided meditation. Practitioners of all levels will benefit from the abundance of insight and guidance provided by these diverse voices.
This fresh and original work illuminates such key principles as karma (what we do does matter), rebirth (every moment is an opportunity to start afresh), letting go (simplifying our lives by clarifying our hearts and minds), as well as conscious living and dying, and Dzogchen, the ultimate, mystical teaching of Tibet.
With his book, Awakening the Buddha Within, Lama Surya Das emerged as a leading figure in American Buddhism. Now, with Natural Perfection, he introduces us to Tibet's most closely guarded enlightenment tradition, dzogchen - "The Natural Great Perfection."
Using down-to-earth, everyday experiences and stories, as well as specific ancient Buddhist practices and mediations, Surya Das illustrates how to develop authentic presence, how to connect to our own experience, build deeper relationships, and embrace life's lessons. Also from Lama Surya Das: Awakening the Buddha Within.
"Not much here!"
The Dzochen teachings of Tibetan spirituality affirm that we are all by nature infinitely open, luminous, compassionate, wise and free. Join Lama Surya Das in this guided session to experience the effortless, sky-like nature of the "primordial mind" through two practices: rushen (seeing clearly through the illusion) and Natural Meditation (resting in the effortless spaciousness).
Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within, has spent almost 30 years studying Zen and Tibetan Buddhism with masters in Asia. In this audio program, he emphasizes the accessibility of a distinctly Western form of Buddhism.
