Overview

We speak of enlightenment on the spiritual path. But how do we reconcile the idea of enlightenment with what we see in the mirror—when insecurities, doubts, and self-centered tendencies arise in our minds? Dzigar Kongtrül suggests that these experiences are not a problem if we simply let them arise without judging them. And this approach is what he calls self-reflection.

Self-reflection is a practice, a path, and an attitude. It is the spirit of taking an interest in that which we usually try to push away. Self-reflection is the common thread that runs through all traditions of Buddhist practice. And it breathes life into our practice, protecting it from becoming just another ordinary activity.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Kongtrul is not only the son of a respected Buddhist teacher in northern India but also has been acclaimed as an incarnation of Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, a leading light of 19th-century Buddhism. His latest book addresses questions of some subtlety in a highly accessible manner. Buddhist thought, Kongtrul asserts, necessarily focuses on the "self"-"not the ego `self' but the true nature of all sentient beings." Once the movement from ego to "true nature" is made, we become free to act in the world. An immensely enjoyable little volume on some basics of Buddhist spirituality, this is recommended for all collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Dzigar Kongtrül grew up in a monastic environment and received extensive training in all aspects of Buddhist doctrine. In 1989, he moved to the United States with his family and in 1990, he began a five-year tenure as a professor of Buddhist philosophy at Naropa University. He also founded Mangala Shri Bhuti, his own teaching organization, during this period. He has established a mountain retreat center, Longchen Jigme Samten Ling, in southern Colorado. When not guiding students in long-term retreats and not in retreat himself, Rinpoche travels widely throughout the world teaching and furthering his own education.
