Fearless in Tibet : the life of the mystic Tertön Sogyal by Matteo Pistono( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tertön Sogyal was a 19th century visionary saint whose mastery of meditation led him to become the revered teacher to the 13th Dalai Lama. Known for his deep spiritual insights and service to the nation of Tibet, Tertön Sogyal's ability to harness the power of the mind was born of his own profound understanding of the Buddha's teachings while engaging in the world. Tertön Sogyal's life of striving for perfection against great odds is an example of courageous diligence appreciated by spiritual practitioners of all traditions. And his practical instructions on meditation and opening one's heart in devotion are as relevant today as they were during his lifetime. In Fearless in Tibet, Matteo Pistono shares Tertön Sogyal's essential teachings and life story; from the challenges Tertön Sogyal faced during his early yogic training, to exploring the mystic's inner world of visions and spiritual revelations, to how he worked to bring peace and harmony in Tibet and China. Fearless in Tibet is a journey where the readers will gain their own insight for today's challenges: transforming negativity into opportunity magnetizing auspiciousness by letting go of attachments resting in awareness of the present moment enriching life by embracing impermanence finding refuge in meditation recognizing the awakened state is already present within. Combining riveting storytelling with Tertön Sogyal's profound spiritual instructions, Fearless in Tibet will infuse the reader's spiritual path with wisdom and inspiration, as if the mystical yogi himself were present"--

In the shadow of the Buddha : one man's journey of spiritual discovery and political in Tibet by Matteo Pistono( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly a decade, Matteo Pistono smuggled out of Tibet evidence of atrocities by the Chinese government, showing it to the United States government, human rights organisations, and anyone who would listen. Yet Pistono did not originally intend to fight for social justice in Tibet - he had gone there as a Buddhist pilgrim. Pistono's quest led him to Tibet and to a meditation master whose spiritual brother is Sogyal Rinpoche, bestselling author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. Pistono not only became the master's student but also couriered messages to him in Tibet from the Dalai Lama in India. This began an extraordinary, and ultimately vital, adventure. In the Shadow of the Buddha is a book about Tibet through the eyes of a devotee - a stranger hiding in plain sight. It's about how a culture's rich spiritual past is slipping away against the force of a tyrannical future. It's about how Tibetans live today, and the tenacity of their faith in the future in spite of dire repression and abuse. It's also about Pistono's own journey from being a frustrated political activist to becoming a practicing Buddhist mystic, a man who traveled thousands of miles and risked his own life to pursue freedom and peace
