Banyen's Description: 

For anyone interested in Buddhist practice and philosophy, this book gives detailed instruction and friendly and inspiring advice for those embarking on the Tibetan Buddhist path in earnest. By offering guidance on how to approach the process and giving instruction for specific meditation and contemplation techniques, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche provides gentle yet thorough commentary, companionship, and inspiration for committing to the Buddhist path.

This blending of personal testimonies, insight into people’s minds, and enthusiastic openness to contemporary understanding are some of the hallmarks of Mingyur Rinpoche’s unique ease in presenting the deepest teachings of Buddhism along with issues that are relevant to our modern world. In Turning Confusion into Clarity, Rinpoche applies these wonderful skills. He gives us comprehensive teachings on the foundation practices that contain instructions indispensable for undertaking these practices in a traditional and authentic way. What is very special, however, is that these traditional instructions are interspersed with inspiring memories, stories of great masters, and intimate insights into Rinpoche’s own spiritual path, thus bringing the teachings fully alive. —Matthieu Ricard, from the Foreword

“Mingyur Rinpoche’s mastery of the teachings and subtle understanding of the mind enable him to capture the foundation practices in all their clarity and transformative power, demonstrating why they were so deeply cherished by the great masters of the past and why they are just as important for practitioners today.”—Sogyal Rinpoche

“Mingyur Rinpoche embodies the fruits of deep contemplative practice. A gifted teacher, he shares with us here his teachings on preliminary practices for beginning the spiritual path he guides. And, as we have come to love, Rinpoche does so with his rare combination of wit, accomplishment, and wisdom.”—Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
