Chapter Summary

The book Awakening through Love: Unveiling Your Deepest Goodness talks about how Tibetan Buddhist meditations can be made accessible to people of all backgrounds and faiths, that they might shed light on their own spiritual lives. This chapter distills some key pointers for the earnest explorer of the inter-religious imagination. The chapter suggests that like John Nash, one can learn, to shift ones attention away from that deluded vision so as to connect with the fuller reality of the people around through the power of love. Pure perception, is a power of knowing from beyond ones egos. It senses others intuitively through the wisdom and love that values each one as holy mystery, beyond the grasp of self-centered, reductive thoughts. An ancient Buddhist text called the Tathagatagarbha Sutra (Buddha Nature Scripture) is renowned for revealing through images what is intuited in meditation.
