An excellent book for those new to Buddhism or for anybody wanting to calm their minds. With wit and wisdom, meditation master, Akong Tulku Rinpoche teaches us how to confront and harness the energies of the 'wild tiger' of our minds which otherwise can cause so much suffering to ourselves and others. In the first half of the book, the author explains in clear terms the Buddhist principles as they may be applied to everyday life.
The second part consists of a sequence of meditational exercises which can provide a basis for self-knowledge and self-healing which will continue to serve throughout one's life. This programme of training has been developed with Westerners at the Kagyu Samye Ling teaching monastery in Scotland (co-founded by the author), and has subsequently been used in Tibetan Buddhist centres throughout Europe and America.
