Eastern Wisdom for Western Living
Rev. John Lundin
His Holiness the Dalai Lama

THE NEW MANDALA - Eastern Wisdom for Western Living is a journey toward spiritual reawakening and rediscovery. On one level it's an engaging and entertaining journal of a Christian clergyman's quest for enlightenment. On another level it is a road map for the reader's own spiritual journey.

Written in collaboration with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, THE NEW MANDALA is a guide for all who are on the journey of life, and who desire a movement away from the constructed boundaries in their lives toward the divine energy of their center. It is an invitation to the readers to explore the wisdom and practice of an ancient new tradition, while at the same time illuminating and reclaiming the inherited faith of their formation.

The Author, an American Protestant minister, speaks to all who are walking the same path he is on - the path toward a deeper spirituality. With his feet firmly planted in the Christianity of his faith tradition, Rev. John Lundin enters into the world of Tibetan Buddhism in search of a new spirituality. The quest takes him - and the reader - on a journey to Dharamsala in north India, the home of His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet. In private dialogues with His Holiness, the author discovers the empowering affinity between Buddhism and Christianity. Rev. Lundin weaves the personal experiences of his own pilgrimage with the wisdom and teaching of the Dalai Lama himself.

This simple and easy-to-read glimpse at the heart of Buddhism offers seekers from the West a structure and a practical guide to meditation and spiritual practice that can become an integral part of their own faith. The Middle Way that the Buddha taught, and which Rev. Lundin and the Dalai Lama present to the reader in a clear and accessible manner, can become the way for anyone - Christian, Jew, even the non-believer - to grow spiritually.

THE NEW MANDALA is an opportunity for discovery and a valuable guide for everyone who wishes to travel from here to there, for anyone who wishes to make the ultimate pilgrimage toward becoming fully human.
