Description About the author Contents
 
Traleg Kyabgon presents the Abhidharma system of Asanga in clear and uncomplicated language so that students of the mahayana can easily employ its insights to understand their own minds. The Yogacara view of mind provides a model for understanding our construction of reality. Its understanding of how the mind operates is a guide for how we can properly assess our lives and develop in more psychologically wholesome ways without getting bogged down by past experience. Rinpoche shows that this kind of reflection on ourselves will reveal how our whole conscious evolution has taken place and where we have mismanaged certain things. We will learn how to gradually integrate our fragmented consciousness and transform neurosis into wisdom.

As Rinpoche says, It is not the fact of what we are that is keeping us in bondage; it is our mismanagement of the whole situation. What we are has nothing to do with being bound. Our wrong assessment of the situation has created our bondage. Mahayanists don't say you have to come to any kind of cessation on that level. The neuroses do not cease as much as they are seen for what they are. Not being able to see our own neuroses for what they are is what creates the the neurosis. It is not a matter of having all these neuroses as an intrinsic thing and then suffering from them.
