Über diesen Titel


What is the mind and how does it work?; which types of mind lead to joy and freedom, and which do not?; how can an understanding of our mind be applied to our everyday life? This book provides a practical explanation of the mind in a combination of profound philosophical exploration and practical psychology. Part 1 of the book explains what the mind is and how it works. Contrary to the modern materialistic view, Buddhist psychology is based on an understanding of the mind as a formless continuum that is related to yet separate from the physical body. Through understanding the nature of the mind and the process of cognition, we can attain a lasting state of inner peace and happiness that is independent of internal circumstances. In part 2 the many types of mind are explained from the standpoint of those that are virtuous and lead to joy and freedom, and those that are non-virtuous and are therefore to be abandoned. Throughout the book Geshe Kelsang shows how this understanding of the mindcan be applied in transforming all life situations into a dynamic spiritual path. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso was born in Tibet and is a fully accomplished meditation Master and Spiritual Guide. Resident in England since 1977, he is the author of a number of acclaimed books which bridge the ancient wisdom of the Buddhist faith with contemporary life. He has also founded many Buddhist centres throughout the world.
