Gandhi. Some admire such figures from afar and think, How special they
are; I could never be like that. But as John Makransky has learned, the
power of real and enduring love lies within every one of us. Awakening Through Love is his guide to finding it.
In Awakening Through Love, he pioneers new ways of
making Tibetan meditations of compassion and wisdom accessible to
people of all backgrounds and faiths. Drawing from Tibetan teachings of
compassion and the Dzogchen teachings of innate wisdom, and using
plain, practical instruction, he helps readers uncover the unity of
wisdom and love in the very nature of their minds. Then Lama John
describes how to actualize those qualities in every aspect of family
life, work, service and social action. Awakening Through Love, John Makransky, Wisdom Publications, Paperback, 2007, 261 Pages, $16.95
