Buddhist Psychology: foundation of Buddhist thought, volume 3
This new volume from the Foundation of Buddhist Thought series, provides a stand-alone and systematic—but accessible—entry into how Buddhism understands the mind. Geshe Tashi, an English-speaking Tibetan monk who lives in London, was trained from boyhood in a traditional Tibetan monastery, but he is adept in communicating this classical training for a modern Western audience.
Buddhist psychology addresses both the nature of the mind and how we know what we know. Just as scientists observe and catalog the material world, Buddhists for centuries have been observing and cataloging the components of our inner experience. The result is a rich and subtle knowledge that can be harnessed to the goal of increasing human well being.
“A user’s manual for the human psyche! Geshe Tashi Tsering is great at making difficult material accessible. Buddhist Psychology provides kind and practical guidance for analyzing and transforming your mind”
—Lorne Ladner, author of The Lost Art of Compassion
“With this series of books drawn from his highly successful courses, Geshe Tashi's insights can be enjoyed by a wide audience of both specialists and newcomers to the Buddhist tradition. His presentations, never divorced from the basic humanity and warmth of his personality, combine rigor and accessibility.”
—Thupten Jinpa, principal translator for the Dalai Lama and director of the Institute of Tibetan Classics
