Tarthang Tulku helps us learn to meditate and to transcend and transform our Ego mechanisms into healthy human beings. By introducing awareness exercises to guide us in all of his books, this resource is great for health practitioners and others interested in improving themselves from a holistic perspective. For example, in his chapter, “Releasing Fear, Being Honest,” Tibetan Meditation – Practical teaching and step-by-step exercises on how to live in harmony, peace, and happiness, (Dharma Pub, 2006); he guides us with the use of the Mirror:

“The ego plays many games with us and permeates all our feelings, sensations, and ideas; yet we are not even truly aware of how the ego creates these Patterns in our lives or how our various negative attitudes and motivations develop. All we know is that we will continue to suffer from our pain and problems until we are exhausted.” Tarthang Tulku

I have been working with Master Tulku’s practical and visionary exercises for many years and continue to find them adventurous and enjoyable for my injured warriors, couples, families and others as we explore our social psyche--Mind, Body, Emotions and Spirit. Using the Mirror is very inspirational, especially when experiencing all of the masks or veils freeing us from fear, insecurities, prejudices and other inhabitants. I am now eager to see who and what is real behind our persona by using these Mirror exercises and “… to communicate clearly and honestly with both yourself and others.” We might also ask ourselves: “Who is that Masked Man/Woman?”

Please let me know your experience with Tibetan Meditation by Tarthang Tulku. [link]
