new book 2Challenged by disease, we panic. Provoked by enemies, we get angry. Enticed by the allure of what we think we lack, we become lost in distraction and desire. Rather than simply reacting to circumstances, being pushed and pulled by whatever happens in the outer world, we need deep resilience to live a more fulfilling life. This is grounded not just in physical, mental, or emotional strength, but also in inner spiritual strength. In this guide Rinpoche helps us to discover our inner resources and offers advice on practical methods of developing them. His direct and unpretentious words make profound ideas accessible to everyone.
