The Secrets of Tibet 1 

Květoslav Minařík characterised the Tibetan texts, contained in a two-volume The Secrets of Tibet as the deepest and most interesting writing in the European literature on mysticism and psychology. He has projected his direct life and spiritual experience into the comments and, based on them, he explains the Tibetan text using the terminology of the modern psychology. Especially in places where he deals with the nature and function of consciousness as the most important factor of existence, he shows the world Psychology the direction of a new way and new horizons.

He emphasizes predominantly the relationships between the right way of living from the point of view of morality on one side, and the personal destinies of an individual as well as those of the entire society, on the other side. Therefore this book is the most significant handbook of the methodology of life; with its help the reader can not only remove ignorance, they can also create preconditions for satisfaction.

...As long as a person can govern their inclinations, emotions, etc., they are holding in hand the keys to their own future destiny. However, it is almost a rule that people use these keys incorrectly. Instead of rejecting the impulses manifesting as wanting, they accept them.

...The mysticism is not a philosophy, it is a way of life. Everyone can study it. It seems to me that the nations of the western continents are karmically sufficiently mature to be able to think about the karmic meaning of the psychological factors, which continue to form the being, although they have come from the karmic predispositions and this path does not finish before the person renounces everything for good.
