As Tibetan Buddhism extends its reach in the West, many practitioners are making strong commitments to this path. The Vajrayana tradition still being new to our culture, however, there remain significant gaps in Western students' education and understanding. These can lead to practical difficulties for new or intermediate students. This book begins with the very awakening of students' interest in spirituality and their initial encounter with Tibetan Buddhism, and then leads them through the steps necessary for successful practice in the West. A Beginner's Guide to Tibetan Buddhism speaks powerfully and directly to the Western student who is working to integrate this incredibly vast tradition into the realities of daily life. Drawing on his many years of practice and teaching, the author skillfully addresses obstacles, doubts and confusions that every reader will recognize. "Bruce Newman has been my close student for almost thirty years. I am confident that he will be able to share his insights with others and help them on the Buddhist Path."— Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, Tibetan Buddhist teacher and meditation master. "Lama Bruce Newman, my old dharma friend, writes openly and honestly about his love for Buddhism and what the path of dharma has brought to his life as a Westerner. This book is an enjoyable, practical read which will inspire interested seekers and encourage them to bring out their best."— Sangye Khandro, translator of Tibetan Buddhism, Light of Berotsana Translation Group "Bruce, your friendly Dharma Pal, takes the beginner by the hand to walk through the intricacies of the path, making complex ideas and terminology plain and simple. A solid, down-to-earth book."— Erik Schmidt, Rangjung Yeshe Publications Bruce Newman has studied and practiced Tibetan Buddhism, mostly in the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions, for almost thirty years. He spent eleven years in India and Nepal studying under his primary teacher, Venerable Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche. Mr. Newman also completed a four-year retreat at Kagyu Samye Ling in Scotland. For the past ten years, he has been practicing and teaching under the guidance of Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche in Ashland, Oregon. "Bruce Newman, a long-time student of Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, relays his own experiences with finding a teacher and establishing a practice front and center in A Beginner's Guide to Tibetan Buddhism: Notes from a Practicioner's Journey. Written by a Westerner for Westerners, this how-to overview contains everything from charts explaining the different schools and lineages of Tibetan Buddhism to explicit advice on discipline, guru devotion, and pitfalls like "emotional enthrallment" (detailed in an absorbing chapter called "Getting it Wrong)."-- Joan Duncan Oliver, Tricycle Magazine, The Buddhist Review Printed Pages: 230.
