H.E. Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche points directly to the inner recesses of our emotions and our daily lives.
At the same time, their teaching leads us with skill to inquire into our relationships and to address the situations of life, directing towards others the potential for love, kindness and happiness that all beings already have within us.
Rinpoche, with great tenderness and compassion, makes us undress so that we are able to perceive how we are and what we really are, so that we can see, too, why we act according to habits that are repeated and we glimpse the way out of this mess.
In a fun, simple and accessible way for everyone, but at the same time profound, give advice and instructions to integrate the Dharma into our daily life and practice.
This book contains a clear and accurate message, both for those who wish to approach the Buddha’s Dharma, and for those who have already entered this path and practice it.
