Knowledge is as infinite as the stars in the sky;
There is no end to all the subjects one could study.
It is better to grasp straight away their very essence—
The unchanging fortress of the dharmakaya.

Tsultrim Allione takes you on a journey where the listener will learn how to embody the sacred energy of the five dakinis to bring strength, power and transformation to your life.

The Mandala of the Enlightened Feminine is a complete, accessible curriculum designed to support women in their pursuit of enlightenment through the dakini wisdom energies.

The Complete Nyingma Tradition from Sutra to Tantra, Books 15 to 17 - The Essential Tantras of Mahayoga
by Choying Tobden Dorje
translated by Gyurme Dorje

In 1838, Choying Tobden Dorje, a yogin and scholar of northeastern Tibet, completed a multivolume masterwork that traces the entire path of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism from beginning to end. Written by a mantra practitioner for the benefit of mantra practitioners living among the lay community, it was intended to be informative, inspirational, and above all, practical. Its twenty-five books, or topical divisions, offer a comprehensive and detailed view of the Buddhist path according to the early translation school of Tibetan Buddhism, spanning the vast range of Buddhist teachings from the initial steps to the highest esoteric teachings of great perfection. Choying Tobden Dorje’s magnum opus appears in English here for the first time.

Books 15 to 17: The Essential Tantras of Mahayoga is presented in two volumes and concerns the first of the three classes of inner tantra. It presents the entire text of the Guhyagarbha Tantra, in Tibetan and English, together with the interlinear sections of one of its most important commentaries, Dispelling the Darkness of the Ten Directions, by the outstanding fourteenth-century master Longchen Rabjam. Also included is Choying Tobden Dorje’s rewriting of Candragomin’s inspirational Extensive Commentary on the Sublime Litany of the Names of Manjushri.
Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa
Our Price: £45.00

The much loved spiritual songs of Tibet's great yogi, the cotton-clad master of sutra and tantra who wandered the country, teaching wherever he went with his spellbinding spontaneous songs of enlightenment.

Now available in one volume, Tibetans accord this work a classic status and revere Milarepa as probably the best single exemplar of the religious life. The Hundred Thousand Songs, says the book's translator, has been read as the biography of a saint, a guide book for devotions, a manual of Buddhist yoga, a volume of songs and poems, and even a collection of Tibetan folklore and fairy tales. Milarepa's songs are filled with fascinating tales of miraculous encounters and colourful imagery, and present a valuable insight into the living quality of Tibetan Buddhism. The songs and stories include Milarepa's subjugation and conversion of demons, and his meetings and teachings to his disciples, particularly Gampopa and Rechungpa.
