Light Comes Through: Buddhist Teachings on Awakening to Our Natural Intelligence
Dzigar Kongtrül Rinpoche
Light Comes Through by Dzigar Kongtrül Rinpoche is one of those books that isn’t overly long (just over 120 pages), but is dense with information. I found myself reading a chapter and then putting it down for a while just to absorb the teachings in the book. More than once I found myself challenged by the ideas in the book, and that’s good. Dzigar Kongtrül’s latest work discusses emotions and how we can better relate to them, and from that ability, better relate to ourselves, others, and the world around us. Even though the title clearly states that it is a book of Buddhist teachings, it is written in a way that is approachable for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. Light Comes Through is a pleasure to read, and with the many insights it contains, is one of those that can be read again and again, with the reader gaining new understanding each and every time.
Added bonus: Dzigar Kongtrül Rinpoche will be at the First Congregational Church in Boulder on Monday, July 21 to speak and sign copies of Light Comes Through. For more info, click here.
