A once-secret method to generate bliss used only by the great Tibetan masters, the "wish-fulfilling jewel tree" has the power to enlighten all who absorb its teachings. And the image of a gorgeous giant evergreen Christmas-like tree with perennial ornaments of big jewel-like flowers and fruits dominates this book and its revolutionary practice of meditation and compassion. In the glowing ornaments sit the enlightened teachers, angels, and deities of the world reflecting wisdom, energy, and compassion as they guide us onto the right way in life. Using the centuries - old wisdom of the jewel tree helps readers break through worn-out ideas and habits, strengthen positive abilities, develop more energy and creativity, and pursue happiness and fulfilment, here and now. In his characteristically dynamic style Thurman reveals why happiness is the true goal of Tibetan spirituality, presents eleven clear steps to using the vivid imagery and power of the jewel tree, and helps readers "love more fully, feel compassion more intensely, and become a fountain of cheerfulness for all they meet and know.
