TAMING THE TIGER

Dr. Akong Tulku Rinpoche, the co- founder of Samye Ling, also left in his legacy the Taming the Tiger exercises and the Tara Rokpa Therapy. The exercises and Tara Rokpa were specifically created and developed for westerners both Buddhists and non-Buddhists.
The Taming the Tiger exercises were collected into a book of the same name. They form a sequential series that can be used as meditations, relaxations and therapy. The exercises focus on the taming of our minds so that we can better find balance and stability whatever the circumstances of our lives. Practicing the exercises supports us to understand the nature of our difficulties and our own wish to be happy. We can, thus, better appreciate this commonality in others also. It is a compassion based approach. We start with ourselves, the taming of our own minds. In this way we develop and feel friendship towards ourselves which can then spread to feelings of friendship with all others.
