Abstract:

"In this expanded edition of her classic introduction, Radmila Moacanin takes us to the interface of Tibetan Buddhism and Jungian psychology. Emerging from radically different cultures, these two worldviews share strikingly parallel ideas and a common concern for what Jung called "the tremendous experiment of becoming conscious." Tibetan Buddhism, renowned for its tantric practices, is replete with imagery and rituals for transforming the mind. In his theories of mind and psychology, Jung searched for universal symbols and methods for unlocking the power of the human psyche. Moacanin examines Jungian archetypes and Buddhist deities, the roles of analyst and spiritual friend, the collective unconscious and karma, and much more. She allows these concepts to illuminate one another while carefully preserving the distinctiveness of each view. Passionate about both disciplines, Moacanin is able to communicate their essential import and worldview in an integrated and direct way. She lifts the ideas and methods of both the Buddha and Carl Jung beyond mere theory into the realm of experience, bringing them alive for twenty-first-century readers. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
