A PROFOUND MIND shows us how to transform difficult situations into opportunities for spiritual growth. The mind is central to all human experience. Whether one is in harmony with the world depends upon one’s relative emotional and spiritual health. For this reason, the core teachings of Buddhism have always emphasized various forms of mind training. In A PROFOUND MIND, His Holiness the Dalai Lama provides a succinct overview of the basic techniques of spiritual development in Tibetan Buddhism. Introducing several aspects of mind training, he combines the insights of traditional scholarship with his personal warmth and humanity.
