the book by John Makransky

In Awakening Through Love: Unveiling Your Deepest Goodness, John Makransky adapts Tibetan meditation practices using plain, practical instructions that help us to unleash a deeply wise, enduring power of love and compassion for every part of our lives: relationships, work, service, and social action.


John Makransky is a professor of Buddhism and Comparative Theology at Boston College and a Tibetan Buddhist meditation teacher.
