Praise for The Power of Mind
“A deep well of both timeless and practical wisdom, Khentrul Rinpoche’s new book helps us uncover the relaxed awareness and freedom that is our very essence.”—Tara Brach, author of Trusting the Gold

“Knowing that nothing about mind is ordinary, Tibetan Buddhism abounds with surprisingly simple, down-to-earth techniques for harnessing the innate magic of our mind, allowing it to transform adversity into advantage. For many centuries, Tibetans have relied upon the easy-to-apply slogans found in the Seven Points of Mind Training to serve as the very heart of their spiritual path. Here, with crystal clear insight into the complexities of modern life, the exceptionally learned Khentrul Lodro T’haye Rinpoche inspires his readers to take up those same ancient tools of lojong to infuse their lives with more compassion, equanimity, understanding, patience, and loving kindness for others.”—Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, author of Sadness, Love, Openness: The Buddhist Path of Joy

“This book is a user’s guide for something that all of us possess: mind. It is written in such clear, simple, and plain terms, yet contains deep meaning and complexity. The wisdom that Rinpoche imparts in The Power of Mind can benefit us all; from the absolute beginner to the most seasoned dharma practitioner.”—Michael Imperioli, actor, director, and writer

About The Power of Mind
We’ve all heard platitudes about cultivating wisdom, love, and compassion, but can developing these qualities really transform adversity? Based on his new book, The Power of Mind: A Tibetan Monk's Guide to Finding Freedom in Every Challenge (Shambhala Publications, 2022), Tibetan Buddhist monk Khentrul Rinpoche will discuss how, yes, they can – not by searching for something in the outside world, but instead through training the mind. Peace and happiness start within us then extend out to the entire globe. Regardless of what’s happening in our lives, Rinpoche teaches that our route to freedom lies within our minds. 

A thousand years ago, the Indian saint Atisha risked his life to seek out these mind training teachings in Indonesia. He then brought them to Tibet, where they flourished and spread to the rest of the world. Khentrul Rinpoche was inspired by his own teachers, who were able to follow these techniques during the Cultural Revolution and transform immense suffering into something positive. Join us in-person with Rinpoche as he explores the potential and power of our mind and introduces us to this wisdom, which has been passed down from teacher to student for centuries.
