Amazon Review

It sounds like science fiction, but more and more people are tapping into the healing power of the mind. Bill Moyers brought this topic to light in a big way with his best-selling Healing and the Mind, but that was just an overview. For step-by-step instructions, you can turn to Tulku Thondup's The Healing Power of the Mind. Thondup, Tibetan Buddhist monk since the age of five and Harvard scholar, says that in the Tibetan tradition the mind is the key to health and that "mental grasping" is often the cause of our physical undoing. A cosmic counsellor of sorts, Thondup guides us first through simple exercises in relaxation and accepting present circumstances. His healing method centres on visualisation, beginning with emotions and moving on to the body. With breathing and sound as part of the package, the meditator creates a sense of well-being and compassion that is ideally carried over mindfully into everyday activities. The accelerated pupil can move on to more complex Buddhist imagery, but no matter how far you go, trusting the healing power of the mind is the first step. --Brian Bruya

" Thondup's book is a rich survey of the healing resources inherent in Nyingma Buddhism. . . . Thondup's book is a rare and invaluable guide to an ancient Tibetan treasure." "Publishers Weekly" " Tulku Thondup seems to have done for Tibetan Buddhism what Shunryu Suzuki Roshi did for Zen. Like Suzuki's "Zen Mind, Beginners Mind, "Thondup's book is deceptively simple the work of a great teacher who has penetrated this material so deeply he can present it with a clarity that spiritual seekers of any level can grasp. What's more, you don't have to be a Buddhist to find "The Healing Power of Mind "life-transforming." --"New Age Journal"

"For many years I have dreamed of a book like this and Tulku Thondup a master of Tibetan Buddhism, a gifted scholar, and a renowned translator is the ideal person to have authored it. A skillful distillation of Buddhist teachings on healing it is written with great charm, clarity, and simplicity in a way that people from any culture or background can benefit from. In a time of real and urgent need let's hope that people everywhere will take it to heart and connect with the limitless power of healing within."

If you are into Tibetan Buddhism get this book. It is different to the usual scholarly written books written by Tibetan Buddhist scholars which I enjoy reading, in the way that the principles of mind training have been explained. The book is more digestible for me in the fact that I am new to Tibetan Buddhism and I found it easy to put the ideas into practice presented so clearly by Tulku Thondup.

Format: Paperback
This book is very inspiring, relaxing and practical. The level is for beginners in meditation but unlike some other I have tried to read (and I could never finish because they were too high level)this one catches you in a soft way without trying to sell you budhism theories or mediation itself as a panacea to solve everything. It doesn't preach, it convinces you with logical and emotional words at the same time. The language is plain, clear and full of good will, harmonious and even it sounds poetic at times. It talks to you like a father trying to help you to be happy without being selfish. It tells you that you caring about the others and yourself goes together.
It is really a pleasant book to read, and more than once, to have it at your bed table and consulting it time to time.

I love this book. It brings the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism into everyday life--whether you call yourself a Buddhist or not. It shows how you can use healing attitudes and imagery. Simple, nondogmatic, loving, and practical.
