Thanks, dzogchungpa, for posting these Anam Thubten videos. He's my root teacher, so watching these is a bit like coming home for me.

Keep 'em comin'!

Will do.

Blessings for sure, thank you to keep sharing these bells. I learned from him to use the breath in correct way, which was somehow a struggle before. And this simple looking practice is such a help, in clouded moments.
May all beings have happiness and the cause of happiness.
May they be free of suffering and the cause of suffering.
May they never be disassociated from the supreme happiness which is without suffering.
May they remain in the boundless equanimity, free from both attachment to close ones and rejection of others.

We all want peace, while mind is making conflicts. Okay I get it.
We throw that mind out and case is closed. :spy: But, what and where out, no idea.

Thank you for sharing this talk; "Our Heart Already Knows" :heart:

My pleasure. A new one is up now, featuring a nice discussion of Padmasambhava and the Vajra Guru mantra, "All is Well":

I'm considering purchasing one of Anam Thubten's books, having never read any of them. As I understand it, all three of the books in prose are edited from his public talks; and then there's a book of poetry. For those who are familiar, do any of them stand out as particularly insightful? Is there a difference of focus between the books, or do they all cover similar ground?

I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that I haven't really read his books, although I did read some of "No Self, No Problem" and found it quite interesting. I will point out that he actually has a new book out that coincidentally just went on sale today:

I am reading through Embracing Each Moment(about halfway through it), and I have No Self, No Problem but haven't started with it yet.

Embracing Each Moment does not seem to have any specific focus, at least as far as I can see, and covers the entire path. It is not a meditation manual(although you may gain insights into your practice), each chapter is an explanation of one particular aspect of the path, I think adapted from his talks. If you like his talks, you will find a lot of material you would like. I thought I would already be familiar with most of the topics in the book(impermanence for example), but his explanations provided a different perspective that I very much appreciated.

I haven't read his other books to compare, but if you aren't looking for one particular topic to read on then Embracing Each Moment might be a good place to start with. I would reiterate though that it is not a meditation manual, you won't find much instruction here if that's what you are looking for.
