E87: Bringing the Mind Home- A Reading from the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
In the spirit of doing something new and different, in today’s show Dr. Kelly reads excerpts from Sogyal Rinpoche’s Spiritual Classic and International Bestseller, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. These excerpts hone in on the true nature of our minds and our universal consciousness. This is part of 1 of a series of meditative readings that will be featured on the show this year.
The focus here is BRINGING THE MIND HOME by training the mind through meditation practice. Rinpoche discusses three different types of meditation which Dr. Kelly is going to share and reflect upon- Meditation through mantra, meditation through focusing on an object, and meditation through breath.
This is a contemplative show, designed to relax, provoke thoughts, and inspire. <3
The Tibetan Book of living and dying was written by Sogyal Rinpoche, a Tibetan Dzogchen lama of the Nyingma tradition. Born in Kham in Eastern Tibet, Sogyal Rinpoche was recognized at an early age as the incarnation of a great master and visionary saint of the nineteenth century, Tertön Sogyal Lerab Lingpa (1856-1926), a teacher to the thirteenth Dalai Lama.
He has been teaching for over 30 years and continues to travel widely in Europe, America, Australia and Asia. He is also the founder and spiritual director of Rigpa—an international network of over 100 Buddhist centres and groups in 23 countries around the world—The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, which has been printed in 30 languages and 56 countries.[2 and has sold millions of copies.
