Everyone appreciates kindness. A smile, a few friendly words, a show of concern when we're troubled or feeling unwell, an offer of help - gestures of kindness like these brighten our day and ease whatever sadness we may feel in our hearts. Feeling that "someone cares" fulfills a very deep need that we all have. And just as we appreciate other people being kind to us, others appreciate it when we are kind to them. That is why it is important to learn to be kind, because it will help make our relationships and interactions with others more satisfying and less problematic. But it's not always easy to be kind. Sometimes our hearts are filled with anger, jealousy, or pride, and being kind is the last thing we feel like doing. Or we get so caught up in our work and responsibilities that we find no time to think of others and their needs, no time to be kind and gentle. However, these problems can be remedied. The Buddhist tradition offers a wealth of methods that can be used to overcome whatever prevents us from being kind and gentle. Some of these methods are explored and explained in this book - in a way that will allow you to practice them in your daily life. Awakening the Kind Heart offers powerful and inviting meditation techniques to activate the heart of kindness within us all - a modern and motivating interpretation of traditional and powerful practices.

Bodhichitta, often translated as "great compassion," is the gem at the heart of Buddhism. From this altruistic desire to serve others, all other Buddhist practices naturally flow, therefore, this state of mind is one Buddhists should understand and cultivate. In The Awakening Mind, Geshe Tashi Tsering leads us through the two main methods to develop bodhichitta that have been developed by the great Indian and Tibetan Buddhists over the centuries: the seven points of cause and effect, and equalizing and exchanging the self with others. This is the fourth release from Geshe Tashi's Foundation of Buddhist Thought series, which individually and collectively represent an excellent introduction to Tibetan Buddhism. These unique and friendly books are based on the curriculum of a popular course of the same name, developed by Geshe Tashi himself. Geshe Tashi's presentations combine rigor and comprehensiveness with lucidity and accessibility, never divorced from the basic humanity and warmth of his personality. In Geshe Tashi, we encounter the new generation of Tibetan monk-scholars teaching in the West who are following in the footsteps of such revered and groundbreaking teachers as Geshe Wangyal and Geshe Sopa.

'Life is about relationships - the relationship we have with ourselves, with each other, with the world, as well as the connection to that which is beyond any of us. WHen our relationships are food, we feel good; when they are bad, we feel awful. Let's accept it:we need each other. We need to feel connected; we need to feel each other's presence and love.' With his first bestseller, Awakening the Buddha Within, Surya Das, the American-born lama, gave the Western world a primer for Tibetan Buddhism. Now, he continues to share this ancient wisdom as he shows us how to integrate all the experiences of our lives, both positive and negative, into our spiritual search. How happy we are with our relationships - with others, the world and ourselves - largely determines how joyous and fulfilled we will be. In Awakening the Biddhist Heart, Lama Surya Das shows us how to use our innate Spiritual Intellgence to build more loving and satisfying connections. As he helps us to increase our self-awareness and sensitivity towards others, making us better mates, parents, friends and members of society, Surya Das demonstrates how we can make our relationships more meaningful as he guides us through Buddhist practices that release negative emotions which enable us to learn from those we love, and those we don't.

In Nawang Khechog’s view, one of the wonders and marvels of being human is that we can choose to nurture and cultivate kindness, compassion, and love. These precious human values are the foundation of true happiness and are at the core of humanity’s possibility of peaceful coexistence with one another, with other species, and with our environment. Based on his eleven years as a monk, studying Buddhist philosophy and meditation with the Dalai Lama, as well as his own highly regarded workshops, Awakening Kindness details the many ways we can enrich our lives by simply being kind to each other and ourselves. Nawang includes a range of simple meditations, mantras, and practices that are easy to incorporate into even the busiest modern life. Filled with the philosophy of many cultures and religions, and touching on everything from human nature as it’s portrayed in film to scientific support of our limitless capacity for love, kindness, and compassion, Awakening Kindness takes the reader on a life-changing journey where we all can take part in creating a culture of kindness.

Where had the time gone? For the past 25 years, Sarah Adam had divided her time between working long hours at the Everett Post Office in a rural area of Pennsylvania and raising her daughter alone. With her impending retirement and her daughter grown and heading out on her own, Sarah begins to wonder about what her own future may hold in store and whether or not she would be spending it alone. On one hand, Jack Bryant's life had been filled with heartache and turmoil. On the other hand, he had worked his way up the ladder in his Postal career in Vermont and was now offered a one-year term as the new Post Office Operations Manager in Pennsylvania. He was personally responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of every office in the county - a position that lands him in constant conflict with the tyrant of a Postmaster from the Everett office. Jack and Sarah meet at a local hardware store and begin a relationship that neither wants to admit makes them anything more than friends. When Jack finds out that not only do they both work for the Postal Service, but that he is actually in Sarah's chain of command, he begins a web of deceit that threatens their budding relationship. With all the problems at the Everett Post Office, how long will Jack be able to hide his true identity, and what will happen when Sarah finds out who he really is?

This book is an introduction to prayer, drawing on Eastern and Western traditions. Translated from the original Japanese into Dutch, French, German, Italian, Korean, and Spanish, Awakening to Prayer has already become a modern spiritual classic. In this simple yet profound book, Japanese Carmelite Augustine Ichiro Okumura explores the fundamental nature and root of prayer, the human and divine reality that underlies all praying. Drawing on the images, stories, and insights of Eastern and Western spiritual traditions, the author considers prayer as conversation, as listening, as resting in the divine. In a long chapter on the "anthropology of prayer," he discusses the relationship between prayer times and other daily activities, the need for both repeated ritual and silence, the problem of distractions and deviations in prayer. The book culminates in a moving reflection on Christ's prayer and what it means to pray authentically as a Christian.

It is almost impossible to capture the richness and the beauty of the idea contained in this book within the confines of one book or thousand books. This is the essence of my own thinking and reflection, based on my spiritual studies from various sources of knowledge and the wisdom of the ancient seers in the last forty years or so of my life. It will be more appropriate to say that it is a product of my new awareness or call it the gift of grace that I have been able to put together multi-faceted ideas about the “Heart” in a new frame of light. We hear about the heart everywhere, whether it is in a romantic tune or about love from the heart or emotions emanating from the heart or somebody singing about his or her broken heart. Contrary to the popular belief that it is the brain that does everything and that it is mind or the brain that is the seat of consciousness; we now know that it is the heart, not the physical but the spiritual heart that is linked to the source of infinite intelligence. Since ages, in every culture and every religion, much has been written about the heart metaphorically. As per the wisdom of the ancient Hindu seers, Greek and Buddhist scholars; heart is the seat of human consciousness. Here are the lines from Rig Veda (X129), written more than 3,000 years ago”: “In the One arose Love, Love the first seed of the Soul The truth of this the sages knew Found hidden in their hearts, Seeking therein the essence of wisdom, The sages found that bond of union Between the known & the Unknown.” Mankind has reached the highest expression of life or perhaps coming close to the ultimate states of human evolution when it comes to emotions, feelings, perceptions and subtler or higher realms of consciousness. The natural laws of the universe are coaxing the humanity to seek the oneness, the unity and the harmony in the hearts of everybody and everywhere by rising above any barriers of divisiveness and separateness. It is true that we can observe the mind through that faculty of the mind, which observes the mind, call it the faculty of reflection or self-introspection. It is the mind that observes the lower mind or the monkey mind and through developing this new awareness, becomes the higher mind. Let us call this the super-mind. This super-mind has the faculty to absorb the heart-based consciousness beyond the limited and conditioned consciousness of the baser mind. In other words it is only through the light of this new awareness that mind becomes the super-mind. It is only through unity of the mind with the heart that the aspirant can experience a quantum leap in awareness and bestows the aspirant with keen intelligence. This keen intelligence is not a product of the lower mind but the mind that soaked in the heart-consciousness and the ennobling qualities connected with the heart. The heart is far more than a mere organ that pumps blood all day long, it is a generator of information energy and its cells are storehouses of info-energetic memories. Heart is a feeling, thinking, receiving and communicating organ having spiritual powers. Heart is the most sophisticated internal cosmic antenna, capable of receiving and remitting healing rays, through thoughts, feelings and prayers in the form of positive vibrations. This not based on some heresy or some old man’s tale or hunches, it is based on self-knowledge, wisdom and discernment and qualities of head and heart. It is your thoughts and passions deep down your heart that determine who you are and your core passions and what you will be based on knowing first and then implementing those passions through a plan of action. When we know what we are deep down in our heart, it is easy to go about following what we love and loving what we do. All our desires, ambitions, fears, loves and passions reside in embryonic form in our heart-center. We are naturally attracted to whatever we secretly harbor in our heart’s DNA, and whatever we harbor with passion has the p
