    The Tibetan Book of the Dead as translated by Gyurme Dorje The Buddha, Geoff, and Me by Edward Canfor-Dumas. Thoughts Without a Thinker: Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective by Mark Epstein. The Experience of Insight by Joseph Goldstein Living Buddhist Masters by Joseph Goldstein and Jack Kornfield The Tao of Sobriety by David Gregson.

      For this Buddhist, this is the essence of a liberative practice. Excerpted from " Being With Dying " by Joan Halifax Roshi (Shambhala Publications). Joan Halifax Roshi is a Buddhist .   Be patient. The philosophical teachings in Tibetan Buddhism, especially the teaching on imputation by mind, are very subtle and difficult to grasp and will likely take years, or at the very least several months, of study and contemplation before they start to really make sense and apply to your personal experience in a real way. Keep going. Keep studying, keep contemplating what you've read.
