    One thought on “Living Fully: Finding Joy in Every Breath”

    1. A good book, for me, is one that tells me more about my humanity--and the humanity of others. It helps me to become more fully human. A pebble in the pond, it causes ripples everywhere. No matter whether it be fiction or non-fiction, poetry or prose, a good book changes everything. So I like to believe. What a joy for me to receive an email this morning about Mind Work: "A magic manual for seeing yourself in everyone and everyone in you." I could find no greater compliment for H.E. Shyalpa Tenzi [...]

    2. It may sound strange to describe it as such, but this book is like a great selection of short, fast punk rock songs. No need to go off into heavy, long guitar solos. Time to just get to it. Get in and get out. Living Fully does just that. It’s a collection of many short chapters that together give a full soundtrack to what it is to be human and how to discover how best to navigate this reality we find ourselves in.Quite a bit of terrain is covered in this book, but don’t be fooled, it is a d [...]

    3. I started reading this book after concluding the chapter on the Diamond Sutra in Thich Nhat Hanh's "Awakening of the Heart" and thought, "Wow this book seems so light and fluffy in comparison with the Diamond Sutra." When I got to chapter 7, "Facing Obstacles and Obscurations," it seemed to get a bit more interesting and useful for me. Sometimes I found his words thought-provoking. For example:"We may assume that a financial crisis or broken relationship is the cause of our fear and insecurity. [...]

    4. Compiled from Rinpoche’s teachings, this collection of thought-provoking and inspiring lessons is formatted in sections of short entries that can be studied one at a time, a topical section at a time, or all the way through. Rinpoche -- who has followed the spiritual path of Buddhism from childhood -- opens his introduction with the humble assertion that “the message is far more important than the messenger,” and duly steps aside to illuminate the message that the practices of kindness, co [...]

    5. Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche is trained in the 4 main Tibetan Buddhist traditions. His root guru Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche, was a Dzogchen teacher, and is also my my order's (Triratna) refuge tree of inspiration. On his website, he says he's more American than Tibetan. He has a retreat center in upstate New York, in Millerton.This book is a tour de force of teachings that basically hammer away at the idea that life is precious and to make the most of it you will meditate, and be compassion. It has a go [...]

    6. It's a good book for the beginner or the non-Buddhist. I think most folks who are already Zen Practitioners will find the material fairly standard and pedestrian. This is not to say it is bad. It's quite good and it might be just the book for you. I thought it was good but it didn't speak to me in the way that Zen Flesh Zen Bones or Opening the Hand of Thought did.
