Advice from Thaye Dorje, the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa
Meditation is currently very popular, and is often presented as the key Budd-hist method. However, it is actually just one of several aspects of the path to liberation. Karmapa Thaye Dorje sketches out the essential points to enter on this path in a way that is both modern and accessible for Western audiences: ta-king refuge, giving rise to loving-kindness and compassion, and measuring the opportunity of this present existence and conditions. With A Taste of Buddhist Practice, the author taps into the Buddha’s legacy and gives it a contemporary flavor.
