When the Bon Buddhists left Tibet having foretold the 1959 invasion, they were scattered throughout the world to places where their teaching would be effective, and where they would find people to carry the Bon tradtion of skilful thinking.
One such Master discovered the author at the age four in New Zealand and thus began 23 years of instruction.
There are many great techniques that stem from this teaching, so I am enjoying this book tremendously. There are some easy, yet empowering exercises to move negative thoughts and create an empowering reality.
This is an easy to follow blueprint for living, which I highly recommend. This book came to me highly recommended, and I highly recommend it to you. I hope you find this helpful.
The book is divided into 10 sections, each covering an aspect of life from the Power of Thought through Relationships and Love to Helping others and the World in a Single Thought. Each section offers advice & practical exercises to deal with every aspect in your life. So if you are unable to consult directly with the leading practioner of BonMedicine in the western world, and his public seminars are rare in North America, then buy the book. I have and it continues to change my life every day.
For the cynical amongst you, I do not normally make recomendations of this sort, but for this book it was not difficult.
Mr. Hansard spent a great deal of his life, starting at a very early age, learning the teachings, traditions and practices of Bon. In this new book, he shows us all how we can learn from these ancient practices, how we can use the spiritual techniques of Bon to improve our own lives.
This book is filled with enlightening information and very simple to understand (and do) Bon practices to assist a person in transforming one's life into the life that you want to live. Even though some of the practices seem very simple, they are very powerful.
True change is all about the power of one's thoughts. And, this book will tell you why and how to work with and change your thoughts, changing your life for the better in the process.
Rev. Jeff, Professional Psychic and Reiki Master
Now, what is the "Tibetan Art of Positive Thinking"? It is simply skillful thinking about life and living. I walked away with two insights after reading this book.
1. Life is hard, but simple.
2. Finding solutions to problems demands focus, attention, and commitment.
As a self-help book it is decent and above the average. Since I take a very dim view of the industrial production of erudite and packaged snippets of marginally intelligent insights, I cannot rate this book higher than three stars. I must commend, however, the author for being very forthright and honest. I never sensed condecension or empty cheerleading throughtout the book.
But since it is an interesting read - apart from the self-help aspect of this book - I give it four stars.
