The Meditator’s Nest

Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin – The Meditator’s Nest: Building a Spiritual Practice, Oral Teachings on the Essentials of the Buddhist Path

Drawing from his scholastic and contemplative training, as well as his personal understanding of modern life and human nature, Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin offers excellent guidance to both beginners and experienced practitioners on the Buddha’s way. Based on the pith instructions transmitted in the Sakya tradition, such as the teachings on Parting from the Four Attachments, as well as the Indian classics of Buddhist philosophy like Chandrakirti’s Introduction to the Middle Way, the teachings offered in this book show us how to integrate both elements—theory and practice—in a most meaningful way on our path.

Together with The Meditator’s Nest: A Mahayana Meditation Manual, this book forms a set, a precious companion for those travelling the path to awakening.

Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin is the abbot of Tsechen Dongag Choeling, a Sakya monastery in Mundgod, South India. He studied under the late Khenchen Appey Rinpoche at Sakya College, where he also taught for several years, and completed a three-year retreat under the guidance of H.E. Chogye Trichen Rinpoche. Since 2001 Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin has been teaching philosophy and meditation at the International Buddhist Academy.
