Leesgroep Tibetaans Boeddhisme

De volgende keer lezen we van Tara Brach: ‘True Refuge. Finding Peace and Freedom in Your Own Awakened Heart’. Met dit boek, ‘True Refuge’, en de twee vorige boeken, ‘The heart attack sutra’ en ‘Start where you are, A guide to compassionate living’ hebben we op onze eigen manier een verkenning gemaakt van de ‘Drie hoofdzaken van het pad’: refuge, bodhicitta and emptiness (tekst van Lama Tsong Khapa).

Over het boek:
‘How do you cope when facing life-threatening illness, family conflict, faltering relationships, old trauma, obsessive thinking, overwhelming emotion, or inevitable loss? If you’re like most people, chances are you react with fear and confusion, falling back on timeworn strategies: anger, self-judgment, and addictive behaviors. Though these old, conditioned attempts to control our life may offer fleeting relief, ultimately they leave us feeling isolated and mired in pain.

There is another way. Beneath the turbulence of our thoughts and emotions exists a profound stillness, a silent awareness capable of limitless love. Tara Brach, author of the award-winningRadical Acceptance, calls this awareness our true refuge, because it is available to every one of us, at any moment, no exceptions. In this book, Brach offers a practical guide to finding our inner sanctuary of peace and wisdom in the midst of difficulty.

Based on a fresh interpretation of the three classic Buddhist gateways to freedom—truth, love, and awareness—True Refuge shows us the way not just to heal our suffering, but also to cultivate our capacity for genuine happiness. Through spiritual teachings, guided meditations, and inspirational stories of people who discovered loving presence during times of great struggle, Brach invites us to connect more deeply with our own inner life, one another, and the world around us.’

Thich Nhat Hanh schrijft:
‘Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience as well as ten more years of personal experience on the path of awakening, Tara Brach’s superb second book brings readers ever more deeply in touch with our true nature. This book is a precious gift, filled with insight, shared from heart to heart.’
