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 essenceó
The unchanging fortress of the dharmakaya.

Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism
Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism - Its Fundamentals and History
Our Price: £65.00

Author : Dudjom Rinpoche and Gyurme Dorje and Kapstein, Matthew

Description :
The long-awaited reprint of this monumental and definitive study of the oldest school of Tibetan Buddhism. This is one of the master works of recent Buddhist scholarship. Written by the late head of the Nyingma sect, His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, the book covers in detail and depth both the main teachings and the history of the Nyingma tradition.

In the section on the teachings, Dudjom Rinpoche delineates the entire range of the Buddhist spiritual and philosophical systems. These form a dynamic gradation of experience, from the mundane level of cyclic existence to that of the Great Perfection, Dzogchen.

In the section on the history of the school, a fascinating account is given of the religious development of Tibet, from the seventh century until the present day. Included are numerous biographies of the major teachers in the lineage, and a rectification of misconceptions and criticisms concerning the Nyingma school. Extensive notes and records of source materials round out a volume of immense importance.
"It is a work which communicates the highest wisdom of the Nyingma lineage to the English-speaking world." Shenpen Dawa Rinpoche.

For those who wish to know the philosophy of Buddhism then the best way to learn it is to know the differences between the views of the four philosophical tenets. The presentation of the two truths by the different tenets leads one from a common understanding of what is real to ever more subtle understandings which can lead to that which is beyond the intellect.
The Mandala of the Enlightened Feminine
The Mandala of the Enlightened Feminine: Awaken the Wisdom of the Five Dakinis
Our Price: £50.00

[Audio Book] 5 CD set

The Tibetan Buddhist tradition carries exotic tales about fearless female "sky dancers" or "wisdom dakinis" who dance in limitless space and act as messengers, guides and protectors. These dakinis manifest the feminine wisdom energy that has been stripped from religions and cultures, energy that is so desperately needed in the world today. 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.
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.

Treasure Trove of Scriptual Transmission
Treasure Trove of Scriptual Transmission
Our Price: £42.00

Longchenpa`s commentary on the Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena, which expands on the topics presented in the source verses contained in that text. This companion volume concerns the Dzogchen approach to trekcho, or cutting through solidity, which brings spiritual practitioners of the highest acumen to freedom effortlessy. Drawing extensively on the tantras and pith instructions of the great perfection, Longchenpa summarizes the definitive topics of this approach from the perspective of the basic space of phenomena - naturally occurring timeless awareness, awakened mind.

"The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena - the most profound of all - is the depth of mind of the omniscient lama, that beautifully reveals the meaning of dharmakaya, genuine mind itself, to be naked awareness, with nothing to be added or dispelled. It is authentic dharmakaya appearing in the form of a text. An excellent text like this is an actual Buddha - it directly reveals the enlightened intent of victorious ones, accomplishing their deeds in this world. Even if you met a Buddha, you would not find more than this. An excellent text like this is a treasury of all sacred dharma. The consumate content of all teachings is nakedly revealed as timeless awareness of dharmakaya. Even if all teachings were compared, there would be nothing more than this." Patrul Rinpoche.
