For over 2000 years, Buddhist psychology has offered invaluable insights into the nature of the heart and mind, and transformed the way many people around the world handle life's challenges. But the ancient texts on which these remarkable teachings are based can be difficult to penetrate for modern seekers. Now, drawing on his experience as a monk trained in Thailand, Burma and India, as well as his expert psychology practice, Jack Kornfield provides an accessible, definitive guide to Buddhism for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. This important new work is in the tradition of his classic works A Path with Heart and After the Ecstasy, the Laundry, offering practical tools to coping with modern life and dealing with emotions such as fear, anger and shame. Kornfield also shares the illuminating stories of his students and fellow practitioners, as well as his own journey towards enlightenment, including his recovery from a violence-filled childhood. Here is a rare treasure that will give readers greater access to the secret beauty within - and without.
Our inner work is to tune our hearts and our senses to perceive the spiritual world says Michael Laitman in the poem Spiritual Wave. This is a lovingly crafted anthology comprised of Kabbalistic tales and allegories passed through Dr Michael Laitman, and his mentors Rav Baruch Ashlag (Rabash), and Rabash's father Rav Yehuda Ashlag. The desire of the Kabbalah student is to reach higher levels of spiritual attainment, yet it is difficult to imagine the sensations of the spiritual world. The verse in this reflective and insightful compilation gives the reader a glimpse into the essence of this elevated state of being. The poems herein are excerpts from letters and lessons given by these three, spiritual leaders. They offer inspiring and often amusing depictions of human nature that resonate with reader regardless of his/her level of study. Indeed, this book is a tool for any student seeking to find higher levels of spiritual attainment.

This book concerns a man's journey to find his goal and mission in life with the aid of trusted friends and his spirit guide Chong Tzu. Through many episodes he learns, find himself and is able to move on. All through the book challenging issues are raised such as the true meaning of justice and the true leading of a good life.
