    ZAMLING GYENDUG CHHOGNYI (A Compendium of Eight Buddhist Masters) ZAMLING GYENDUG CHHOGNYI (A Compendium of Eight Buddhist Masters)
    by C.T. Dorji

    The book provides a succinct and overall view of not only the lives and deeds but also the philosophy of the Eight Indian Masters who were popularly known as the Six Ornaments and the Two Excellencies of the Buddhist world. Texts written by them are found in Tenjur (commentarial cannon) and are accepted by all sects of Mahayana Buddhism and any quotation on any point is accepted by all. It is hoped that this book will be helpful and useful to students, monks and general readers who wish to know more about Buddhism. It is also expected to bring about greater awareness of the richness and intellectual depth of Mahayana Buddhist literature and philosophy.

  • SAINT IN SEATTLE: The Life of the Tibetan Mystic Dezhung Rinpoche SAINT IN SEATTLE: The Life of the Tibetan Mystic Dezhung Rinpoche
    by David Jackson

    In 1960, the Tibetan lama Dezhung Rinpoche (1906-87) arrived in Seattle after being forced into exile from his native land by the Communist Chinese. Already a revered master of the teachings of all Tibetan Buddhist schools, he would eventually become a teacher of some of Western Buddhism's most notable scholars. This is the inspiring and unlikely biography of a modern buddha.

  • THE RISE OF ESOTERIC BUDDHISM IN TIBET THE RISE OF ESOTERIC BUDDHISM IN TIBET
    by Eva M. Dargyay

    This study is based on several Tibetan sources never presented in any modern language. The main concern of this study is to exhibit and analyze the traditions of the Old School of Tibetan Buddhism, i.e. the rnyig-ma-pa. For the first time there is shown that the history of the Old School goes far beyond the eminent tantric master Padmasambhava; some sources hint at a non-Indian origin of some tantric cycles. The whole tradition of the Old School is divided into two lineages; one of the Pronouncements and the other of the Concealed Treasures. Each lineage is discussed in detail- more than twenty biographies of the famous masters of the Old School are rendered. The author's commentary on these facts and events aims at giving an impression of the spiritual life within the Old School and links the result of this study with the hitherto existing knowledge of esoteric Buddhism. This study exhibits a great deal of so far unknown facts and events that are indispensable for understanding thought and history of Tantric Buddhism in Tibet.

  • HOMAGE TO KALU RINPOCHE HOMAGE TO KALU RINPOCHE
    by Dan Jorgensen / Deborah Price-Jahnke (Edt.)

    Khyab Je Kalu Rinpoche was one of the greatest Buddhist saints of this age, known and highly respected by the heads of all major and minor tantric schools in Tibet. His Holiness Karmapa once said that Kalu Rinpoche was an incarnation of Milarepa, a 12th century yogin who is perhaps the most famous and most admired of all Tibetan saints. Everyone who met Kalu Rinpoche, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike, were profoundly impressed.

  • COMPASSIONATE ACTION, The Teachings of Chatral Rinpoche COMPASSIONATE ACTION, The Teachings of Chatral Rinpoche
    by Chatral Rinpoche

    Chatral Rinpoche is known as one of the most compassionate Bodhisattvas and greatest masters in the history of Tibetan Buddhism. In 1947 he was the head spritual master for Regent Reting, who was at the time the political ruler of Tibet. He is the vajra regent, or principla lineage holder of the three major lineages of the Nyingma School: Longchen Nyingthig, Dudjom Tersar, and Sera Khandro. He rescues millions of endagered animals each year and has been a strict vegetarian for over forty-five years. Now in his 90's, he is as active as ever, helping humans and animals alike with an unfathomably deep compassion.

    This is the first book in English dedicated to this living legend, and includes a biography, an autobiography, three of his essays, three prayers he composed and an exlusive interview.

  • BORN IN TIBET BORN IN TIBET
    by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

    Chogyam Trungpa-meditation master, scholar, and artist- was identified at the age of only thirteen months as a major tulku or reincarlnation of an enlightened teacher. As the eleventh in the teaching lineage known as the Trungpa tulkus, he underwent a period of intensive training, in meditation, philosophy, and fine arts, receiving full ordination as a monk in 1958 at the age of eighteen.The following year, tlle Chinese Communists invaded Tibet, and the young Trungpa spent many harrowing months trekking over the Himalayas, narrowly escaping, capture.
    Trungpa's account of his experiences as a young monk, his duties as the abbot and spiritual head of a great morlastery, and his moving relationships with his teachers offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the life of a Tibetan lama. The memoir concludes with his daring escape from Tibet to India. In an epilogue, he describes his emigration to the West, where he encountered many people eager to learn about the ancient wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism.

  • RECALLING CHOGYAM TRUNGPA RECALLING CHOGYAM TRUNGPA
    comp. and ed. by Fabrice Midal, fore. by Diana Judith Mukpo

    In wide-ranging essays and interviews, contributors from the fields of Buddhist practice and scholarship, philosophy, the arts, and literature examine the work of a modern genius the Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Chogyam Trungpa (1939-1987). A pioneer in introducing Buddhism to the West, Trungpa had a distinct knack for breaking down the cultural, historical, and ideological barriers that make any such transmission so difficult today. His skill at communicating in a living, contemporary way to Western students, while remaining faithful to the traditional origins of Buddhism, was paired with an understanding of the modern world of unusual relevance. As a result, his activities in a wide range of areas including painting, calligraphy, photography, poetry, theater, and business, as well as interreligious dialogue, the creation of Shambhala Training, and the founding of the first Buddhist university in North America and offer penetrating insights into the meaning of Buddhism for our world and our culture.
