    HEALING WITH FORM, ENERGY AND LIGHT: The Five Elements in Tibetan Shamanism, Tantra, and Dzogchen HEALING WITH FORM, ENERGY AND LIGHT: The Five Elements in Tibetan Shamanism, Tantra, and Dzogchen
    by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

    In the shamanic world-view of Tibet, the five elements of earth, water, fire, air, and space are accessed through the raw powers of nature and through non-physical beings associated with the natural world. In the Tibetan tantric view, the elements are recognized as five kinds of energy in the body and are balanced with a program of yogic movements, breathing exercises, and visualizations. In these Dzogchen teachings, the elements are understood to be the radiance of being and are accessed through pure awareness. Healing with Form, Energy, and Light offers the reader healing meditations and yogic practices on each of these levels.

  • CREATION AND COMPLETION: Essential Points of Tantric Meditation CREATION AND COMPLETION: Essential Points of Tantric Meditation
    by Jamgon Kongtrul, trans. by Sarah Harding, comm. by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

    Creation and Completion is a unique guide to the practice of Tibetan Buddhist tantra. Drawing on experiential explanations from two great masters, it is both concise and thorough, both authoritative and clear. In the creation stage of tantra, practitioners visualize themselves in the form of buddhas and other enlightened beings. This meditation practice prepares the mind for engaging in the completion stage, where one comes face to face with the ultimate nature of mind and reality.
    Jamgon Kongtrul, a pivotal figure in the Buddhist revival movement of nineteenth-century Tibet, was a master practitioner and one of Tibetan Buddhism's most prolific writers. His guide to tantric Buddhist meditation, translated here by Sarah Harding, was written in the style of the Tibetan songs of realization. The commentary by contemporary master Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche skillfully clarifies the nuances of Kongtrul's text, making the language come alive in a practical way for the modern reader. Harding's excellent introduction distills the essential features of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
    The powerful meditation instructions, traditionally reserved for initiates alone, will be of immense value, both to aspiring and experienced practitioners alike.
    "...very beneficial...will resolve all doubts about tantric practice."--Thrangu Rinpoche

  • UTTARATANTRA OF MAITREYA UTTARATANTRA OF MAITREYA
    by E. Obermiller

    This books is in four parts. The first part consists of Introduction by H.S. Prasad. He argues for sempiternal, dynamic and substantive reality underlying all appearances. He shows that as one rises to a higher level of consciousness, the various Yanas, like Sravakayana, Pratyekabuddhayana, Bodhi-sattvayana and Mahayana, all merge into ekayana; for each contributes to the gradual realisation of the oneness of ultimate reality, thus paving the way for the emergence of universal culture. On Prasad's view the much talked-about negativism of the Madhyamika-Sarvadrstisunyata is not an end in it self, rather it is a basis for the realisation of the essential unity of all beings, sentient as well as insentient, leading to the cultivation and promotion of universal good, compassion and friendliness.
    In the second part is reprinted the Sanskrit text of Maitreya's Uttaratantra (Ratnagotravibhaga). The third part includes correction and emendation suggested by Jikido Takasaki in the Sanskrit text in the light of Tibetan and Chinese versions. The fourth part is an English translation of the text from its Tibetan version by E. Obermiller.
    This book is a radical departure from the traditional interpretations of Buddhism and Madhyamika philosophy in particular. It aims at reviving philosophy as cultural activity, a path to enlightenment as spiritual discipline.

  • METAPHYSICS AND MYSTICISM IN MAHAYANA BUDDHISM: An Analytical Study of the Ratnagotravibhago - Mahayanottaratantra Sastram METAPHYSICS AND MYSTICISM IN MAHAYANA BUDDHISM: An Analytical Study of the Ratnagotravibhago - Mahayanottaratantra Sastram
    by C.D. Sebastian

    Canonical and classical Mahayana literature falls into two classes viz., Prajnaparamita and the Tathagatagarbha classes. The Ratnagotravibhago Mahayanottara- tantra Sastra, popularly known as the Uttaratantra, is the foremost example of the Tathagata-garbha literature. In this volume the author makes an exegetical and analytic study of the same text, and brings out the metaphysical and mystical bearings of Mahayana Buddhism. The teaching of the Uttaratantra is a perfect blend of philosophy, religion, spiritual discipline, mysticism and metaphysics - a blend that is characteristic of Buddhism. Tathagata-garbha is an important Mahayana principle, which explains that all living beings possess the essence of Buddha-hood (Sarva- sattvas-tathatagata-garbhah). Tatha- gata-garbha theory is a teaching that gives great optimism for all living beings in the pursuit of Bodhi (Enlightenment) or Buddhatva (Buddhahood). This theory enshrines in it a sublime concept that all the sentient beings are potential Buddhas or all will attain Buddha-hood. Owing to the presence of Tathagata-garbha in all, one perceives the equality of oneself with others, and works for the well-being of all living beings, as one's entire life motif.
