9781590309971: Your Mind Is Your Teacher: Self-Awakening through Contemplative Meditation

This concise handbook of Tibetan Buddhist teachings, designed for Western students, is centered on a sitting practice called Contemplative Meditation. This practice can be used as a way to change troublesome habits, even by someone with little knowledge of Buddhism. Although the teachings are based it on a nineteenth-century text by Lama Mipham, they are presented in a non-scholarly way, with examples drawn from modern life and everyday experience. In particular, the author addresses the unique attitudes and questions of twenty-first-century Westerners who are exploring Buddhism.

The practice taught in the book consists of a reflection on four subjects, known as the Four Seals of the Buddha's teaching: multiplicity, impermanence, suffering, and emptiness. Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche explains how to investigate each of these topics in a way that helps you recognize your innate wisdom mind, which is your ultimate teacher. Once you learn how to examine your own mind and your life with this method, you will start to look at everything differently. By helping to dissolve negative thoughts and habits, the practice can increase your focus, confidence, self-esteem, and happiness.

Along with exercises and questions, short readings, a glossary, and checklists for study, this book provides a complete handbook, with simple instructions for additional practices:

   · the Ninefold Exhalation, a breathing method for expelling stale air before meditation
   · visualization of buddhas and great teachers to inspire practice
   ·  the practice of bodhichitta, or generating love and compassion for all beings
   · the seven-branch offering, seven devotional thoughts to strengthen efforts
   · dedication of merit—the positive energy from the meditation--for the benefit of all beings

Finally, the appendix gives translations of two short readings: The Wheel of Analytical Meditation by Lama Mipham, which is the source of this book's teaching, and the Heart Sutra, a famous brief teaching on emptiness, along with a traditional commentary.

About the Author :

Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche is the founder and spiritual director of Pema Karpo Meditation Center in Memphis, Tennessee. Having completed twenty-seven years as a monk, twelve years of teaching experience, and nine years of study at the Buddhist University of Namdroling Monastery in South India, he holds a Khenpo degree, the Buddhist equivalent of a PhD. Gawang Rinpoche came to the United States in 2004 at the invitation of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and Shambhala International. He proudly became an American citizen in 2012.

Review :

“Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche has prepared this meditation handbook, Your Mind Is Your Teacher, for Western students based on the teachings of Mipham Rinpoche. He presents a clear explanation of analytical meditation, based on the Four Seals and the Heart Sutra, with the intention of making it as accessible as possible even to those who may not consider themselves Buddhists. Presenting the Buddha’s teachings in a way that makes it easier for people to use them to effect a transformation of their minds is a work of true spiritual friendship.”—H.H. the Dalai Lama
