Ultimate Healing: The Power of Compassion

Be wise. Treat yourself, your mind, sympathetically, with loving kindness. If you are gentle with yourself, you will become gentle with others.

–Lama Thubten Yeshe



In this issue


Embodying Chenrezig

Becoming the Compassion Buddha

Becoming the Compassion Buddha

Lama Yeshe strongly believed that practices that helped develop compassion and wisdom should not be limited to advanced practitioners, but that the common person in the street could benefit from them as well. In this book, Lama Yeshe provides a commentary on a short guru yoga practice written by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The practice includes visualizations that inspire the development of compassion and wisdom. The final section of the book goes into detail on the subject of mahamudra, the true nature of all phenomena, another potentially tricky subject. Here again, Lama Yeshe presents the teachings by drawing on examples from daily life and through introducing meditation practices that anyone can follow.
