    A BOLT OF LIGHTNING FROM THE BLUE: The Vast Commentary on Vajrakila A BOLT OF LIGHTNING FROM THE BLUE: The Vast Commentary on Vajrakila
    by Martin J. Boord

    Beginning with Sanskrit sources that explain the development of kila lore on the southern side of the Himalayan divide, the discussion then presents the Tibetan texts that show us just how this lore was assimilated upon its transmission to the north. Included herein are two short tantras of Vajrakila and a full translation of the most important commentary ever written on the subject of kila rites and their practice for enlightenment. Composed by Padmasambhava, Vimalamitra and Shilamanju, all evidence points to the fact that this remarkable text marks the very origin of the tantric Buddhist cult of the wrathful deity Vajrakila.

  • ZURCHUNGPA'S TESTAMENT ZURCHUNGPA'S TESTAMENT
    by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

    Zurchungpa's Eighty Chapters of Personal Advice was the final teaching given by the great Nyingma master Zurchung Sherab Trakpa before he passed away. His counsels are the distillation of a lifetime's experience and comprise the practical instructions of a master who had made the teachings of the Great Perfection truly part of himself. The original text consists of almost 580 maxims organized into eighty chapters covering the entire path of Dzogchen, from fundamental teachings on devotion and renunciation through to a whole series of pith instructions that bring the Dzogchen view to life. Much of the meaning of these pithy, often cryptic instructions could be lost on the reader without the help of the notes Shechen Gyaltsap Rinpoche provided in his annotated edition, which he based on the explanations he received from his own teacher, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.

    This book contains a complete, detailed teaching on Zurchungpa's text by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, based on Shechen Gyaltsap's notes. Originally intended as essential instructions for a group of practitioners in three-year retreat, it will undoubtedly serve as an indispensable guide to anyone who seriously wishes to practice the Great Perfection.

  • CHOD IN THE GANDEN TRADITION: The Oral Instructions of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche CHOD IN THE GANDEN TRADITION: The Oral Instructions of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche
    by Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, edited by David Molk

    In Chöd in the Ganden Tradition we encounter not only the life and teachings of one of the greatest Tibetan masters in modern times, but also instructions in one of the most interesting Tibetan techniques for working with basic fears, applicable to Chod practitioners from all lineages. The instructions are offered with the engaging directness, wit, and stories for which Rinpoche was legendary.

    He tells miraculous stories of the Ganden Oral Lineage masters and then gives detailed explanations of the actual practice, including such topics as the degree of fear "necessary" for Chod practice and how "to remember dream and death, morning, noon, and night." Also provided are the Chod sadhanas for chanting in English.

  • THE SHOWER OF BLESSING THE SHOWER OF BLESSING

  • TARA'S ENLIGHTENED ACTIVITY: An Oral Commentary on «The Twenty-one Praises to Tara» TARA'S ENLIGHTENED ACTIVITY: An Oral Commentary on «The Twenty-one Praises to Tara»
    by Khenchen Palden Sherab and Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal

    The female Buddhist deity Tara is an object of devotional worship and meditative practice for Tibetan Buddhists everywhere, both male and female. She clears away fears, overpowers negative emotions, and enables all beings to reach enlightenment. She has special resonance as a source of female spiritual wisdom. Tibetans of all schools and traditions recite the verses on which this commentary is based. Focused, contemplative meditation in relation to the myriad aspects of Tara work to transform the practitioner's mind into those enlightened qualities and mind states that Tara represents.

    Sought-after teachers throughout the West for over twenty-five years, Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and his brother Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche illuminate the practice of The Praises to the Twenty-one Taras with humor and wisdom. The explanations cover progressively more subtle levels, from basic Buddhism through the Inner Tantras, and culminate with Dzogchen. Interspersed with lively stories about Tara, the authors explain the physical conditions for practice, the outer and inner meanings of the text itself, and give solutions for problems that may emerge as practice progresses.

  • THE KAGYU MONLAM BOOK: A Compilation for Recitation THE KAGYU MONLAM BOOK: A Compilation for Recitation
    translated under the direction of HH 17th Karmapa

    The Kagyu Monlam is an annual event which brings together followers of the Karma Kagyu lineage and other practitioners for a week of practice and celebration. Central to the Monlam is the recitation of aspirations and prayer. His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, decided to update the Monlam's recitation text in order to create an inspirational, non-sectarian selection of the most essential Buddhist teachings.

    His Holiness worked with a special translation team that created fresh, accessible English versions of the original text, and the result is a rich cornucopia of teachings by seminal Buddhist teachers including Nagarjuna, Shantideva, Sakya Pandita, Tsongkhapa, and Jamgon Lodro Thaye. Containing adjacent Tibetan text, phonetic English transliteration, and English translation, this unique book is specifically designed for chanting and is also ideal for quiet contemplation.

    «During the Monlam, many dharma friends from abroad come to celebrate and practice together, and for that reason I thought we should translate the text into English and other languages. The main way we humans improve ourselves is through language; it is also the medium through which we make connections with each other. The Kagyu Monlam is an expression of our love for the world and all living beings and I want it to be accessible to as many people as possible.»--from the foreword, by H.H. the Seventeenth Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

    Harking back to the Monlam tradition of the 7th to 9th Karmapas, HH 17th Karmapa has overseen this beautiful non-sectarian Monlam recitation. This is a substantial collection, well designed with heavy spiral binding to lie flat.

  • AMITABHA SADHANA, DVD AMITABHA SADHANA, DVD
    by Lama Kathy Wesley

    One introductory/instructional talk and one practice session (with audio and on-screen text) on one DVD.

    On this DVD is a 75 minute talk by Lama Kathy Wesley in which she both introduces the Amitabha Sadhana and provides instructions for practicing the sadhana. This disk concludes with a complete Amitabha Sadhana practice session. The audio recording of the practice session plays while the words of the sadhana scroll by on full screen so that viewers can use the recorded session as a guide for their own practice. In the Karma Kagyu tradition, the Amitabha Sadhana is practiced in conjuntion with the Chenrezik Sadhana. This DVD and a similar DVD of Lama Kathy Wesley introducing and instructing on the Chenrezik Sadhana form an ideal pair for learning both practices. In addition, for those desiring a more extensive teaching on the Chenrezik practice, foru additional talks (over seven hours of video on two DVD’s) are available. In these four talks Lama Kathy elaborates at length on the Chenrezik practice and places it in the larger context of quiet sitting meditation and compassion practice. The talks are titled Cultivating the Compassionate Heart: The Practice of Chenrezik. These three teachings together provide excellent instruction for students practicing the combined Chenrezik/Amitabha Sadhana.

    Amitabha Sadhana, Lama Kathy Wesley, Vajra Echoes, 1 DVD, 75 min.
