Enlightened Living: Teachings of Tibetan Buddhist Masters by Tulku Thondup

This collection of translated writings addresses the issue of engaging in secular life with Buddhist intentions. It includes practical advice by great Tibetan teachers such as Paltrul Rinpoche and Jigme Lingpa. Combining folktales and poetry, their teachings pieces impart the essence of spirituality in a pithy, direct fashion.

"There are three things that you should place:
Your body on the seat;
Your mind in your body;
And relaxation in the mind.

There are three things that should be in conformity:
Conversations with friends;
Clothes with the country;
And mind with the Dharma."
Paltrul Rinpoche
