Choose Positive Living with Sara Troy and her guest Turīya, on air from September 29th
At the age of twenty-eight, Turīya’s body began to fail her, and she became sick and disabled. She lost her lucrative career, many of her friends, and became wracked with constant pain. Instead of wallowing in her misfortune Turīya allowed her pain to take her on an adventure of the mind. Already a practicing Buddhist, Turīya deepened her work, found relief from her pain, and founded a new school of Buddhism that captures Buddha’s advanced Tantric teachings and puts them into an American form of Buddhism designed for the modern world. Today she teaches hundreds of people from all over the world Trikaya, her unique form of Buddhism.
Turīya’s story is fascinating and inspirational. Your listeners will learn original and straightforward techniques for gaining control of their time, life, and mind by releasing the mental habits that create suffering.
Unreasonable Joy: Awakening through Trikaya Buddhism (Electric Bliss Publishing, October 27, 2020, $25.99) describes a brand-new school of Buddhism for the modern world and present-day seeker. Author Turīya writes from the premise that Enlightenment is real and exists right now, within us all. She shows how this innovative form of Buddhism, which she has been developing in the United States for over 25-years, can point the reader toward Enlightenment and liberation from suffering.
Unreasonable Joy captures Buddha’s advanced Tantric teachings and puts them into a form of Buddhism that is compatible with 21st Century life. In the book, the reader will learn:
