Description About the author Contents
 
This is a practical guide to the two types of meditation that form the core of Buddhist spiritual practice. Tranquillity (samatha} meditation aims at stilling the mind, while insight (vipasyana) meditation produces "clear vision," or insight into the nature of all phenomena. With masterful scholarship and the ability to make subtle ideas easy to understand and apply in practice, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche explains this unified system of meditation for students both beginning and advanced. These teachings are based on the eighth chapter of the Treasury of Knowledge by the great nineteenth-century master Jamgon Kongtrul. With Thrangu Rinpoche's commentary, this complex, encyclopedic work is now made accessible to Western students of meditation.
Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche is an eminent teacher of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism who has traveled and taught extensively in Asia, Europe, and North America.
