This book includes contemplative exercises that encourage us to appreciate the tremendous potential of the human body and mind. They focus on how we can see this life as a gift, and how, by achieving peace in our own lives, we can bring a seed of happiness to others.
This Precious Life, the authentic teachings on the four mind trainings, is inspiringly intimate, extraordinarily clear, and profoundly meaningful – a must for all serious students of Buddhism.--Tulku Thondup
The Four Reminders, explained here, form the bedrock of Buddhist practice. Khandro Rinpoche has had the benefit of combining religious upbringing and training with modern education, which lends a refreshing contemporary clarity to her explanation.--His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama
Born in India, Khandro Rinpoche is the daughter of His Holiness Mindrolling Trichen Rinpoche and is herself a renowned teacher in the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. She is one of the most highly trained living Tibetan masters and has been teaching in the United States and Europe for over fifteen years, during which time she has attracted thousands of students. She is the head of a Tibetan Buddhist monastic center for women in India and divides her time between there, teaching in the West, and supporting charity projects for Tibetan refugees in India.
