His Holiness the Dalai Lama provides intimate details on an advanced meditation practice called Dzogchen using a visionary poem by the 19th-century saint Patrul Rinpoche, author of the Buddhist classic Words of My Perfect Teacher.


The Dalai Lama deftly connects how training the mind in compassion for other beings is directly related to—and in fact a prerequisite for—the very pinnacle of Buddhist meditation. He presents his understanding, confirmed again and again over millennia, that the cultivation of both compassion and wisdom is absolutely critical to progress in meditation and goes into great depth on how this can be accomplished.

While accessible to a beginner, he leads the reader in very fine detail on how to identify innermost awareness—who we really are—how to maintain contact with this awareness, and how to release oneself from the endless stream of our thoughts to let this awareness, always present, become consistently apparent.

Mindfulness is a method not only for committed Buddhists. It is for everyone interested in mastering the mind.

Clara Hinton is best known for her writings on grief associated with child loss. Her first book, Silent Grief: Finding Your Way Through the Darkness, was published over twenty years ago and is still being used by thousands of bereaved parents. Recently Hinton released another book Child Loss: The Heartbreak and the Hope following the unexpected death of her son Mike. This book has quickly grown in popularity among those seeking hope from the heartbreak of loss. Hinton saw a need for those grieving losses to have daily nourishment for the soul, so her newest book Hope 365: Daily Meditations for the Grieving Heart was born. This book gives 365 daily gifts of hope to readers and provides the strength needed to sustain the pain of loss and grief. As Goethe said, “In all things it is better to hope than despair.” When loss makes no sense, this book will bring to life miraculous moments of hope and healing.

100 Bible Verses Everyone Should Know By Heart

Change your life from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:20.

With the immediacy of Internet searches and ease of handheld devices, the custom of memorizing Scripture may not seem necessary, but best-selling author Robert J. Morgan makes an airtight case for reviving this rewarding practice in 100 Bible Verses Everyone Should Know by Heart.

"It's vital for mental and emotional health and for spiritual well-being," he writes. "It's as powerful as acorns dropping into furrows in the forest. It allows God's words to sink into your brain and permeate your subconscious thoughts. It saturates the personality, satiates the soul, and stockpiles the mind. It changes the atmosphere of every family and alters the weather forecast of every day."

In a series of brief opening chapters, Morgan prepares us for this new old way of thinking and then presents his experienced list of 100 crucial verses, providing sidebar notes, quotes, and memorization tips for each. Extra pages are included to add your favorite verses, extending this life-changing exercise and memorization habit.

"Rob Morgan never disappoints me. His books do what a good book should do: make you think about life from a new and fresh perspective."

Thousands of families love reading “The Children’s meditations: In my heart” at bedtime.

Children today sleep one hour less than we did 25 years ago. It might be the same in your country? We need to teach our children to handle their thoughts and get enough sleep.

The meditations in this book help the kids move their focus away from their many thoughts that often keep them awake, and down into their bodies.

When the busy brain gets less attention, and the tired body gets more, the children fall asleep. They are tired and they need sleep to grow, to develop, and to be happy. As parents, we give our children and their friends an important gift by making sure our children get enough sleep. And what better way than with a heart full of love…


Benefits:

Your child finds inner peace.
Your child falls quickly and easily asleep with his/her heart full of love.
You will have a wonderful time together and create a loving language full of symbols of love.
Your child learns about self–love.
Your child learns to tackle everyday challenges with love.
Your child learns about empathy, love, cohesion and gratitude.
You fill your own heart with love at the same time.

We truly believe that the world needs these stories of love and that we can make the world a better place, if we teach our children how to feel at home in their bodies and understand that the most beautiful love grows inside them.
