Being Human by The Sakyong Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche
Being Human -- by The Sakyong Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche

An edited transcript of a seminar given at Dechen Choling, France, in May of 2000, Being Human is a remarkably clear, direct, and practical guide to shamatha, the meditation practice of "peaceful abiding" or "calmly being." Highly recommended for practitioners either new or used to meditation, Buddhist or otherwise: as the title suggests, shamatha is not a practice particular to any one philosophy or religion but is a means of relating to the mind and the life we have, our basic human condition, our being.

Topics include:
--The Ground of Shamatha
--Meditation Practice and the Nine Stages of Shamatha
--Obstacles and Antidotes in the First Four Stages of Shamatha
--Perfecting the Practice of Shamatha

8.5" x 11" spiralbound, 108 pages.

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is the eldest son of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, is a holder of the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism and of the Shambhala teachings, and is president of Shambhala International and its affiliates.
