GPS Guide: Tenzin Norbu's Bodhisattva-Inspired Path To Peace

The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony, or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to look at the GPS Guide below, visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.

I help myself make progress on the Bodhisattva path by using the lojong -- mind-training techniques that are taught in Tibetan lineage Buddhism. I have shared many of these on my radio program, "The Life of Universal Loving." I also help myself to walk the Bodhisattva path by listening to inspiring and relaxing music, and I have also shared the music I love on my radio program. All of my programs are available as archived episodes at http://bit.ly/ILrId4.

Tenzin Norbu's GPS Guide

Terrence Moore is a retired associate professor of Philosophy who taught at the United States Air Force Academy and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, where he developed an interest in Buddhist philosophy. He earned his Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh and was a post-doctoral Fellow at the Edmond J Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University. Tenzin Norbu, his pen name, means Bearer of the Jewel of the Teachings. Dr. Moore was given this name due to his clear understanding of and ability to articulate the Dharma. Currently, Dr. Moore devotes full time to writing about Dharma, spreading it to anyone who may benefit from it.
