The Guru Drinks Bourbon?

Brand: Shambhala Publications Inc   |   Status: Hết hàng

'This book made the guru-student relationship so much clearer to me. I also so appreciate the fact that Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche does not minimize or make more palatable the challenges inherent in this relationship nor does he care about stating things in a politically correct way. Not one to shy away from controversy, he covers topics such as obedience and surrender to the guru as well as shedding light on the very hot topic of sexuality.
I am grateful that he takes western students seriously enough to explain in clear and uncompromising terms a relationship which is so far from what our culture understands or respects. He writes with humor but takes the subject very seriously as should those of us who have stumbled our way into such a relationship.' - Amazon Reviewer

An enlightening, accessible, and highly entertaining guide to the guru-disciple relationship, the heart of Tibetan Buddhism

The humility and compassionate activity of the Dalai Lama is something many people can connect with, but how can one understand the stories about some other Buddhist teachers’ unorthodox behavior? The centrality of and reliance on a guru is one of most misunderstood elements of Tibetan Buddhism—and one that is most often veiled in mystery. Because the guru can and will use whatever means it takes to wake us up, this relationship may require us to drop our most deeply held beliefs and expectations. 

Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse addresses some of the most misunderstood aspects of this powerful relationship and gives practical advice on making the most of this precious opportunity for transformation. Through stories and classical examples, he shows how to walk the path with eyes wide open, with critical-thinking skills sharpened and equipped to analyze the guru, before taking the leap.
