This lucid overview of the Buddhist path takes the perspective of the three ´´vehicles´´ of Tibetan Buddhism: the Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana. While these vehicles are usually presented as a historical development, they are here equated with the attitudes that individuals bring to their Buddhist practice. Basic to them all, however, is the need to understand our own immediate condition. The primary tool for achieving this is meditation, and The Essence of Buddhism serves as a handbook for the various meditative approaches of Buddhist practice. Beginning with the Four Noble Truths, Traleg Rinpoche incorporates the expansive vision of the bodhisattva path and the transformative vision of Tantra. The final chapters present the transcendent view of Mahamudra. This view dispenses with all dualistic fixations and directly realizes the natural freedom of the mind itself. Along the way, the author provides vivid definitions of fundamental concepts such as compassion, emptiness, and Buddha-nature, and answers common questions: Why does Buddhism teach that there is ´´no self´´? Are Buddhist teachings pessimistic? Does Buddhism encourage social passivity? What is the role of sex in Buddhist Tantra? Why is it said that ´´samsara is nirvana´´? Does it take countless lifetimes to attain enlightenment, or can it be achieved in a moment? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Ansdell.

When Jon Kabat-Zinn introduced the term ´´mindfulness´´ to the general public a few decades ago, he was attempting to incorporate Buddhist meditation practices with modern medical psychology and medicine. Kabat-Zinn´s ideas were intriguing and effective, especially given the rather conservative setting in which he was applying his advice. But we´re a long way from Full Catastrophe Living. And the mindfulness movement is far removed from Kabat-Zinn´s original ideas on the subject. Frankly, when most people use the term ´´mindfulness´´ today, it means next to nothing. Here´s the unglamorous truth about the mindfulness movement that most of us don´t want to acknowledge: If we objectively watch our thoughts - and don´t emotionally intercede with them - we´ll probably observe ourselves having the same cycles of good thoughts and bad thoughts, repeating themselves again and again. If we meditate in such a way - without attempting to refine our thoughts, and instead simply letting them ´´be´´ - we´ll often notice the same emotional cycles of our thinking recurring over the course of many months, and sometimes even years. Objective, nonjudgmental meditation makes us quite aware of this. Our specific thoughts will change - but we´ll still usually have the same up and down emotional cycles within our thinking, regardless of the specific thoughts. 1. Language: English.
