Truly inspirational praises to the five elements pervading all phenomena which meditational insight transforms into the five enlightened wisdoms, or a state of consciousness the author calls 'playmind'. In their gross and subtle forms, these elements combine to make up the infinite display of phenomenal existence. Thinley Norbu shows how the energies of these elements manifest in behaviour, traditions, medicine and art, explaining their links to the five Buddha families, the five wisdom dakinis, and our own senses, temperament, passions, habit and karmas.
This is a unique and powerful presentation of the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism on the five elements - earth, water, air, fire and space. Through the practice of visualization and meditation, we can recognize the pure secret essence of the elements, which is our vast, unobstructed wisdom mind.
