Despite the amount of knowledge accumulated through science and philosophy, the realm of "mind" still presents a mysterious unknown in terms of its function, capacity and creative force. With many centuries of study, reflection and meditation, Buddhists can contribute a great deal to our understanding. This book expertly guides us into this realm and opens out a wealth of understanding to help each of us unlock the potential within.
