Review: Run­ning with the Mind of Med­i­ta­tion: Lessons for Train­ing Body and Mind

Running with the Mind of Meditation: Lessons for Training Body and Mind
Run­ning with the Mind of Med­i­ta­tion: Lessons for Train­ing Body and Mind by Saky­ong Mipham
My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars

I found this to be a very inspi­ra­tional book and I had a desire to share it with oth­ers. I looked up the author, which is a bud­dhist leader, which all have the for­mal title ‘Rin­poche’. This word to me sounds quite jol­ly to me and do like it. How­ev­er, the author is cur­rent­ly under inves­ti­ga­tion for some #metoo claims. I do think being in a posi­tion like his, that chances are high for them to be true, but who knows. It left a real sour taste and I imme­di­ate­ly lost the desire to share the book. How­ev­er, the con­cept of the four stages, the tiger, lion, garu­da (armed-bird) and drag­on, were real­ly intrigu­ing. This entices me to read anoth­er book about the Bud­dhis­tic teach­ings and see what I res­onate with.
