Currently reading: ‘Turning Confusion into Clarity’ by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

2014 September 1

confusion_clarityI have been enjoying to no end the latest book from Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche titled “Turning Confusion into Clarity”.

It’s one of those ‘Oh look. I highlighted everything’ kind of books. It’s one of those “I know I will be referring to this book often in my life’ kind of books. It’s one of those ‘Hey this book is making me talk to myself because it’s so good’ kind of books.

Really. It’s that good.

In a strange and auspicious coincidence, I’m currently doing work with the Four Foundations and this book came onto my path just at the right time. I’ve always been a big fan of Rinpoche’s writing and his openness about his panic disorder has always endeared me to him.

So stay tuned for a blog post on this book shortly. I’m about halfway in folks.

    I was under the impression that this was a ngondro book (since that is the “foundation practices” normally) so I avoided it, as I’m not ever going to do ngondro. Is it a wider reaching book?

      It’s pretty ngondro-y 🙂 The first two parts of the book are pretty much ‘typical’ Buddhism kind of things (meditation instruction, importance of teachers, impermanence, karma, suffering) and then part three is where practices such as refuge, purification, mandala and guru yoga are brought into it all.

      It might not be your cup of tea given this. I do love Rinpoche’s writing and it came to me at the same time that I’m focusing on this in my practice, so I’m all over it.

      Maybe his next book will be something up your alley.
