TAMING THE TIGER offers a simple approach to finding happiness for oneself that also brings happiness to others.

Based on twenty years of Buddhist teaching in the West, Taming the Tiger aims to help anyone seeking the truth about suffering and happiness. The first part of the book deals with topics such as Impermanence, The Right Motivation, Facing the Situation, Body, Speech and Mind, Compassion, and Mindfulness. The second part is devoted to exercises, meditations and relaxation techniques for body and mind, including Feeling, Openness, Taking Suffering, Bringing the Buddha to Life and Universal Compassion. The exercises, designed to provide a base of self-knowledge, mind-therapy and self-healing have also been found beneficial in therapy workshops and in the treatment of psychological problems.

This practical programme has been tested and refined first at therapy workshops of Samye Ling in Scotland - the oldest Tibetan Buddhist centre in the West - and has since confirmed its success in cities throughout Europe, North America and Africa, bringing definitive solutions to long-term problems weighing heavily on the mind.
