Overview

Masters
of Meditation and Miracles
presents
colorful biographies of thirty-five realized teachers whose lives were full of
peace, enlightenment, and amazing miracles. They flourished in Tibet, the Roof
of the World, in its golden days. These teachers belong to the Longchen
Nyingthig lineage of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, a cycle of
mystical teachings revealed by the great scholar and adept Jigme Lingpa.

From
the first master, Garap Dorje, to the present, each spiritual personality has
his or her own distinctive role to play in this great lineage. In retelling
their stories in his own words, the author has sought to bring out their inner
feelings as well as their external activities: how they faced and healed
physical pain, how they dealt with emotional turmoil, how they overcame
spiritual or meditative illusions, and most important, what experiences they
had when they awakened their own inner Buddha Mind and Buddha qualities. These
biographies not only provide great sources of teachings on meditation, but will
also kindle a spiritual flame in the hearts of readers.
