      c L. Robbins. I’m reading Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche’s Turning the Mind Into An Ally for a Buddhist meditation class I’m taking. (Rinpoche means “precious jewel” and is accorded high teachers in the Buddhist tradition) I want to offer a few excerpts from the first two sections of the book (Why Meditate? and The Art of Peacefully Abiding) but first a bit of background. I really enjoyed Mipham’s book Turning the Mind Into an Ally. It is about meditation and how we all can benefit from this beautiful practice. I feel encouraged when I read it. It reminds me a bit of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s book Wherever You Go, There You Are that I have mentioned before. Both are poetic, calming and encouraging in their own way.

    Love is the saving grace.” ~ Sakyong Mipham,   Turning the Mind Into An Ally   (Page ) by Matt Hogan Archives, Motivational Quotes “Generosity, discipline, patience, exertion, meditation, and wisdom keep turning our mind to enlightenment like a flower seeking sunlight. Turning the Mind Into an Ally offers basic guidelines for those interested in learning more about Buddhist meditation. Sakyong Mipham's instruction and discussion of the virtues of peaceful abiding are followed by suggestions for thematic contemplative meditations on topics such as birth, old age, and death.

    The perfect companion to the book Turning the Mind into an Ally. Includes the main program, a minute talk on meditation given at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia on March 5, , as well as a bonus minute guided meditation by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche with detailed instruction on how to practice meditation. Turning the mind is when you keep turning your mind towards the acceptance road. So in life, you keep coming to forks and you have to keep turning the mind to the accepting road. Getting yourself to do it can be really hard. You have to practice over and over and over. The good news is if you practice turning the mind towards acceptance.
