Inner Peace—Global Impact: Tibetan Buddhism, Leadership, and Work

Книга доступна в форматах: pdf , fb2
INNER PEACE-GLOBAL IMPACT describes underlying principles of Tibetan wisdom traditions relevant for successful leadership in the 21st century and brings alive the experiences of Tibetan masters whose entrepreneurial actions were critical to the development of Tibetan Buddhism in the West. With vivid pictures of deep personal experience and commentaries by noted social scientists, this book is written for everyone who wants to revitalize leadership. Long-time Western Tibetan Buddhist practitioners describe how their practice has influenced them in fields as diverse as scientific research, social work, art, dance, and university teaching. The Dalai Lama is seen through the eyes of his long-time friend, eminent author Huston Smith, as well as through the experiences of Thupten Jinpa, his 25-year English translator. Sogyal Rinpoche, author of one of the best-selling books in the world on Tibetan Buddhist insights for modern life, shares his vision for transforming traditional ways of studying. Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, a 10th generation Tibetan yogi, artist, and teacher, reflects on the challenges of teaching in a Western culture where perspectives differ so vastly from those of Tibet. With insights from Tibetan lamas and Western thought leaders including Peter Senge, Bill George, and Margaret Wheatley, this book creates new visions for leadership and the workplace.
