Medittion Exercises to Enlighten the Mind and Heal the Body
This book offers simple meditation techniques to awaken healing energies in the body and mind. Using Buddhist principles as a basis, Tulku Thondup has created a universal guide that anyone can use. It will benefit those who want to preserve good health as well as those who need comfort and relief from illness or mental distress. Boundless Healing offers:
• Ways to employ the four healing powers: positive images, positive words, positive feelings, and positive belief
• Detailed healing exercises that can be done individually or as part of a twelve-stage program
• Exercises for dispelling anxiety
• Healing prayers for the dying and the deceased, plus advice for helpers and survivors
These meditations draw on our innate capacity for imagination and memory, our natural enjoyment of beauty, and our deep-seated longing for a state of quiet calm. For all those who wish to become healthier, happier, and more peaceful in everyday life.
" Tulku Thondup Rinpoche was born in East Tibet and was recognized to be a tulku at age five.

He came to the United States in 1980 as a visiting scholar at Harvard University. For the past three decades he has lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he writes, translates, and teaches under the auspices of the Buddhayana Foundation. His numerous books include The Healing Power of Mind, which has now been published in eighteen languages, and Boundless Healing, which has been published in eleven languages.
