Studying, thinking and meditating are three aspects of timeless wisdom that always follow one another in Buddhism and lead to the experience of lasting happiness. Aspects of timeless wisdom are largely based on original Tibetan sources, many of which have not yet been published in Western languages. Six overarching topics deal with Buddhist foundations, the integration of Buddhism into modern Western society, the understanding of perception and cognitive processes, study and meditation practice, as well as access to the qualities of the mind through the art of Tibetan Buddhism. These themes, presented from the perspective of the Diamond Way, connect with various aspects of timeless wisdom, which means the full realization of the nature of the mind.
Some of the topics covered in this book: Aspects of Buddhist Karma Teaching / Dealing with Feelings of Disturbance and Fixed Ideas / The Development of Dharma in Modern Society / Health and Illness from a Buddhist Perspective / The Five Skandhas - The Components of Personality / The Abhidharma - Teaching - Knowledge about us and the world / Philosophical foundations of perception / The importance of initiations / The first semester at the Karmapa International Buddhist Institute (KIBI) / The four basic exercises / The method of practice on the teacher - from Tilopa / The meditation on the 16th Karmapa, explanations of the 16th Karmapa, newly translated / The different levels of Amitabha practice / The meaning of the art of Tibetan Buddhism / The symbolism of Buddhism / The stupa - symbol for the nature of the mind and other topics.
