Summary
"Tertön Sogyal was a 19th century visionary saint whose mastery of meditation led him to become the revered teacher to the 13th Dalai Lama. Known for his deep spiritual insights and service to the nation of Tibet, Tertön Sogyal's ability to harness the power of the mind was born of his own profound understanding of the Buddha's teachings while engaging in the world. Tertön Sogyal's life of striving for perfection against great odds is an example of courageous diligence appreciated by spiritual practitioners of all traditions. And his practical instructions on meditation and opening one's heart in devotion are as relevant today as they were during his lifetime. In Fearless in Tibet, Matteo Pistono shares Tertön Sogyal's essential teachings and life story; from the challenges Tertön Sogyal faced during his early yogic training, to exploring the mystic's inner world of visions and spiritual revelations, to how he worked to bring peace and harmony in Tibet and China. Fearless in Tibet is a journey where the readers will gain their own insight for today's challenges: transforming negativity into opportunity magnetizing auspiciousness by letting go of attachments resting in awareness of the present moment enriching life by embracing impermanence finding refuge in meditation recognizing the awakened state is already present within. Combining riveting storytelling with Tertön Sogyal's profound spiritual instructions, Fearless in Tibet will infuse the reader's spiritual path with wisdom and inspiration, as if the mystical yogi himself were present"--
