Meet the Author

Yongey Mingur Rinpoche, born in Nepal in 1975, is the author of the acclaimed books The Joy of Living and Joyful Wisdom. His teachings integrate the practical and philosophical disciplines of Tibetan training with the scientific and psychological orientations of the West. His enthusiasm for explaining Buddhist philosophy and practices in an accessible style that addresses the needs of the modern world has made him a favorite among a new generation of Tibetan teachers. Mingyur Rinpoche is the youngest son of celebrated Tibetan meditation master and author Tulku Urgyen. He began his formal monastic studies at the age of eleven and two years later entered his first three-year retreat.
Helen Tworkov is the founder of Tricycle: The Buddhist Review and author of Zen in America: Five Teachers and the Search for an American Buddhism. Having first encountered Buddhism in Japan and Nepal during the 1960s, she has studied in both the Zen and Tibetan traditions.She began studying with Mingyur Rinpoche in 2006.

    Great Guide Down the Path Toward Clarity Reading Yongey Mingyur

    Great Guide Down the Path Toward Clarity

    Reading Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche's "Turning Confusion Into Clarity" is like being taken by the hand and gently led down a peaceful trail. A peaceful trail, of course, that leads you through the eight steps of the Tibetan Buddhist path to self-discovery and away from confusion and unhappiness. That doesn't sound too bad, does it?

    Throughout the book, topics such as human existence, impermanence, karma, and suffering are discussed at length. The style is simple, yet the ideas complex. Readers are encouraged to look within themselves and ask what makes them happy, what makes them feel secure.

    A standout section, in my opinion, is the discussion of "waking up". I love the idea that our own minds have both the power to confuse and the power to find clarity. When we wake up, we "discover the diamond that was in us all along". It's all about discovering our own awareness.

    Though "Turning Confusion Into Clarity" is not a book for Tibetan Buddhism beginners, if you have a basic knowledge of the history and teachings, you will gain a great deal from reading this fantastic work. And if you are looking to go deeper into the history of Buddhism, I highly recommend Stephen Batchelor's The Awakening of the West: The Encounter of Buddhism and Western Culture.
