Tulku Thondup Rinpoche, an esteemed author and teacher, was born in East Tibet and studied at the famed Dodrupchen Monastery. In 1958 he settled in India, where he taught at Indian universities for many years. He came to the United States in 1980 as a visiting scholar at Harvard University. For the past two decades he has lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, engaging in translation and writing on Tibetan Buddhism, particularly the Nyingma teachings, under the auspices of the Buddhayana Foundation. Among his books are "The Healing Power of Mind, "which has been published in seventeen languages, and "Boundless Healing, " in twelve languages.
"Thondup's book is a rich survey of the healing resources inherent in Nyingma Buddhism. . . . Thondup's book is a rare and invaluable guide to an ancient Tibetan treasure."--Publishers Weekly "Tulku Thondup seems to have done for Tibetan Buddhism what Shunryu Suzuki Roshi did for Zen. Like Suzuki's Zen Mind, Beginners Mind, Thondup's book is deceptively simple--the work of a great teacher who has penetrated this material so deeply he can present it with a clarity that spiritual seekers of any level can grasp. What's more, you don't have to be a Buddhist to find The Healing Power of Mind life-transforming."--New Age Journal "Tulku Thondup outlines a means toward healing not just body, mind, and spirit, but the heart as well. As such, this healing path is a spiritual practice, a way to transform our very lives."--Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence "For many years I have dreamed of a book like this and Tulku Thondup--a master of Tibetan Buddhism, a gifted scholar, and a renowned translator--is the ideal person to have authored it. A skillful distillation of Buddhist teachings on healing it is written with great charm, clarity, and simplicity in a way that people from any culture or background can benefit from. In a time of real and urgent need let's hope that people everywhere will take it to heart and connect with the limitless power of healing within."--Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying This luminous book on healing explores territory that few books on mind/body medicine approach-- the true nature of mind and the roots of suffering."--Joan Borysenko, author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind
