Books by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
The Lost Art of Good Conversation
Coming October 17, 2017 from Harmony Books
In a world of iPhones and connectivity to social media and email, we are all in constant connection with one another. Then why are so many people feeling burned out, distant from colleagues, and abandoned by family and friends? The Sakyong uses the basic principles of the Shambhala tradition--meditation and a sincere belief in the inherent wisdom, compassion, and courage of all beings--to help readers to listen and speak more mindfully with loved ones, co-workers, strangers, and even ourselves.
Pre-Order the Book:
THE SHAMBHALA PRINCIPLE
We humans have come to a crossroads in our history: we can either destroy the world or create a good future. The Shambhala Principle offers the principle of basic goodness as a way of addressing the personal and social challenges that we face. In this rich and touching book, Sakyong Mipham recounts his relationship with his father, Chögyam Trungpa, to illustrate his personal journey of discovering the Shambhala principle of basic goodness and enlightened society.
TURNING THE MIND
INTO AN ALLY
Strengthening, calming, and stabilizing the mind is the essential first step in accomplishing nearly any goal. Growing up American with a Tibetan twist, Sakyong Mipham talks to Westerners as no one can: in idiomatic English with stories and wisdom from American culture and the great Buddhist teachers. Turning the Mind Into an Ally makes it possible for anyone to achieve peace and clarity in their lives.
RUNNING WITH THE MIND
Sakyong Mipham has found physical activity to be essential for spiritual well-being. Here he incorporates his spiritual practice with running, presenting basic meditation instruction and fundamental principles he has developed. The lessons here are simple and designed to show how the melding of internal practice with physical movement can be used by anyone – regardless of age, spiritual background, or ability – to benefit body and soul.
RULING YOUR WORLD
Ruling Your World offers a practical plan for living a meaningful life based on understanding how the mind works and how the world works. The basic premise of the book is that by slowing down, cutting aggression, and cultivating compassion and wisdom, we can rule our minds, our lives, and ultimately, the future of the earth.
