Do you take the time to cultivate true happiness? Do you even know what true happiness is? Born into a Tibetan nomadic family and recognized as the reincarnation (Tulku) of an important lama of a Tibetan monastery, Tulku Thondup Rinpoche reveals a key to health and happiness. “Healing can be different things to different people, however, the most important aspect of healing is to have peace in our minds.” Using basic Buddhist principles, Thondup has created a universal guide for all who wish to become healthier, happier, and more peaceful in everyday life. Thondup stresses the importance of the mind/body connection to attain overall well-being.
Thondup studied at the Dodrupchen Monastery in Tibet and fled to India in 1958, where he taught for many years. In 1980, he moved to the U.S. as a visiting scholar at Harvard University. Some of his many books include The Healing Power of Mind: Simple Meditation Exercises for Health, Well-Being, and Enlightenment (Shambhala 1996) and Boundless Healing: Meditation Exercises to Enlighten the Mind and Heal the Body (Shambhala 2000).
