In these inspiring teachings on how to open the heart, a contemporary Tibetan Buddhist master shows us how to change our self-centered attitude and develop concern for the well-being of others. He teaches that when we acknowledge our own wish for happiness, we realize that all beings wish for the same. With a broader perspective, we can develop the strength to extend gratitude and kindness first to those we love, and eventually to everyone.

In his warm and informal style, Rabjam offers accessible Buddhist teachings that will appeal to anyone who would like to find more meaning in life. Based on classical Tibetan teachings, his commentary is fresh, humorous, and sharply insightful. Here is a modern Tibetan teacher who appreciates the challenges of living in today’s world. The Great Medicine will help contemporary readers draw on ancient teachings to find their way to wisdom, freedom, and joy amid the struggles of real life.

About the Author:

Born in 1966, Shechen Rabjam is an accomplished Tibetan Buddhist teacher. The grandson and spiritual heir of the great twentieth-century meditation master Dilgo Khyentse, Rabjam is the abbot of Shechen monasteries in Nepal and India, supervises the Shechen Orgyan Chozong Nunnery in Bhutan, and leads various humanitarian aid projects in Tibet, Nepal, and India.

From Publishers Weekly:

The unwieldy title of this book may be a roadblock, but what's inside is remarkably easy to follow. Rabjam is from the second generation of Tibetan Buddhist teachers who were born outside Tibet yet part of a significant spiritual and familial heritage. He is the grandson of Buddhist master Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. This book, a commentary on a traditional text that is also included, is based on talks given by Rabjam. In unpacking the text, he manages to link it to a range of key Buddhist practices and concepts. Bodhichitta—the "great medicine" of the title, which means the intention to become enlightened—is not the simplest Buddhist teaching to understand, but the author gives a focused and cohesive interpretation. An appended glossary is exceptionally comprehensive and helpful. Despite several removes from the original oral presentation through translating, transcribing and editing, the content is clear and well-organized. Rabjam is not as easygoing as some of the second-generation Tibetan teachers who are more bicultural, but the simplicity and economy of his expression of advanced Buddhist teaching is praiseworthy. Serious Buddhist students will welcome this fresh opening to an important Tibetan Buddhist text—it's good medicine. (June 12)
