The Union of Bliss and Emptiness:
Teachings on the Practice of Guru Yoga
By Dalai Lama (Author), Jinpa, Geshe Thupten (Translator)
Paperback. 192 pages
Guru Yoga is an important aspect of the tantric practice of Mahayana Buddhism and the foundation on which the whole tantric structure is built; it is also the force that gives vitality to a practitioner's meditation. Unlike other systems, tantric meditation depends largely upon inspiration transmitted in an unbroken lineage through a living person, the teacher. Who better than the Dalai Lama can provide a proper understanding of this practice for Tibetan Buddhists.
