Product Details

Praise

The Buddhist Psychology of Awakening shines new light on the profound fundamentals of Buddhism with original insight, vibrant reasoning, and pristine clarity. It is a great gift of scholarly exposition and a cause for celebration.”—Tulku Thondup Rinpoche, author of The Healing Power of Mind

“I’ve been waiting for the book that would detail the Tibetan branch of Buddhist psychology with authority and clarity. At last, here it is. Steven Goodman’s book is witty, wise, and a pleasure to read.”—Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

“Abhidharma holds the heart of early Buddhist wisdom. Goodman’s gift is to bring this forward in friendly, everyday language that never loses touch with the original sources. As he says, the eightfold path is a journey into our own experience, a fresh way to see life and diminish its pain, and this is relevant to everyone.”—Anne C. Klein (Rigzin Drolma), author of Meeting the Great Bliss Queen
