In his lively conversationally-toned presentation, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche clearly shows us how, no matter where we are or what we are doing or how stuck we feel in our pain, our more positive qualities are always accessible to us through our body, speech, and mind. Rather than always searching for happiness outside ourselves, we are shown how to look from a wider perspective and see the constantly present opportunity for reflection and connection with the joyful formless truth that is our authentic nature, and that can lead to the joy and peace inherent in us all.
Tenzin Wangyal draws on a vast system of knowledge to show the many ways that body, speech, and mind can be utilized as doorways to happiness, contentment, better health, and ultimately liberation. These three doors of body, speech, and mind are viewed as the pathways to enlightenment in all the major spiritual traditions of Tibet. In fact they are seen as the only tools that we have for progressing on our spiritual journeys. But first we need to learn how to work with them.
Everybody is looking for happiness and the causes of happiness, and everybody wants relief from suffering and the causes of suffering. Yet we usually look for happiness and relief from suffering in all the wrong places and in all the wrong ways. This book helps to open the "doors" to our fullest potential.
