You Are Buddha: A Guide to Becoming What You Are

Lunghezza: 277 pagine4 ore

Descrizione

We are all looking for greater meaning and wisdom in our lives. The problem is that we search for these things outside ourselves. The most profound teachings of the Buddha say that the wisdom we search for doesn’t come from outside. It is already within us — it is our very nature. The spiritual path is simply a way of helping us uncover and manifest the wisdom we already have.

Discovering our innate wisdom means learning to trust and rely not only on our intellect, but also on our intuition. It also means recognizing and letting go of negative thought patterns and emotional hang-ups that keep us confused and unhappy. "You Are Buddha" offers a practical guide to learning meditation, working with thoughts and emotions, becoming more deeply embodied, understanding the nature of mind, developing ethical conduct, and becoming an authentically mature human being.

Through the path of meditation, action and insight taught by the Buddha, we can stop identifying with our false self and re-awaken to the wisdom we were born with.

What Others Are Saying about "You Are Buddha"....

"'You Are Buddha' speaks about the nature of our mind and the spiritual path in a very fresh and personal way, making profound insights and practices readily accessible. By looking at ancient wisdom teachings through a contemporary lens and sharing his own rich experiences on the path, Dennis Hunter offers an approach to the Buddhist teachings that can be employed by readers of all kinds of backgrounds. There is no need to label oneself a Buddhist to benefit from this book and discover the basic nature that we all share."

— Khenpo Karl Brunnhölzl, author of "The Heart Attack Sutra" and "The Center of the Sunlit Sky"

"Starting from the most profound understanding of the Buddha’s teachings, 'You Are Buddha' offers an elegant and practical guide to bringing these insights into your daily life. The presentations of meditation practice, and working with negative thoughts and emotions, are especially valuable. Because this book is grounded in Dennis Hunter’s own deep personal experience and his extensive practice of meditation, it brings a very contemporary perspective to these classical teachings."
— Andy Karr, author of "Contemplating Reality: A Pracititioner’s Guide to the View in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism" and co-author of "The Practice of Contemplative Photography: Seeing the World with Fresh Eyes"

"Combining insight into the spiritual path with engaging personal anecdotes, 'You Are Buddha' introduces Buddhist practices and philosophy to support whatever path you're on."
— Susan Piver, Founder, The Open Heart Project, best-selling author of "The Wisdom of a Broken Heart"
