The master Atisha, who arrived in Tibet in 1042 A.D., and taught there until his death thirteen years later, had an overwhelming effect on the Buddhism of Central Asia. His teachings sent waves through all orders of Tibetan Buddhism and left impressions that, a millennium later, continue to exert their influence.
Atisha's Lamp for the Path of Enlightenment
By: Geshe Sonam Rinchen/ Sonam Ruth, tr.
Our Price: $14.95
Members Price: $13.46

Atisha's most celebrated text, entitled Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment, was written for the Tibetan people at the request of Jangchub Wo. It sets forth the entire Buddhist path within the framework of three levels of motivation on the part of the practitioner, represented by the Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana paths. Atisha's text thus became the source of the lamrim tradition, or graduated stages of the path to enlightenment, an approach to spiritual practice incorporated within all schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

'Bodhipathapradipa' is unanimously construed as the magnum opus among the compositions of Dipankara Srijnana (Atisa). As a religious text composed by a Buddhist mendicant of India as-well as Tibet, it reconciles the doctrines of the different schools of Buddhism (Madhyamika Sunyavada, Vijnanavada of Yogacharins and the doctrines of Mahayanic Sutras) in its tenets towards the realisation of Bodhi or Perfect Enlightenment.

Our Price: $59.95
Members Price: $53.96

The Kadma School, which emerged from the teachings of the Indian master Atisa and his principal student, Dromtonpa, is revered for its unique practical application of the bodhisattva's altruistic ideal in day-to-day life. One of the most well-known sets of spiritual teachings stemming from Atisa and Dromtonpa is a special collection of oral transmissions enshrined in the two-volume Book of Kadam (Bka' gdams glegs bam). The texts in this volume include the core texts of The Book of Kadam, notably the twenty-three-chapter dialogue between Atisa and Dromtonpa that is woven around Atisa's Bodhisattva's Jewel Garland.

The Lamp for the Path, the Commentary, together with the newly translated Twenty-five Key Texts (Tibetan and English). These translations of the 11 century Tibetan texts of Atisa open important charismatic documents for the general reader of Buddhism. Although these texts have been acknowledged for centuries as the source and inspiration of the Dge-lugs-pa and Bka'-gdams-pa monastic orders in Tibet and Central Asia, the writings of Atisa have only recently found more interest among Western scholars.

Compiled in the fifteenth century, Mind Training: The Great Collection is the earliest anthology of a special genre of Tibetan literature known as "mind training," or lojong in Tibetan. The principal focus of these texts is the systematic cultivation of such altruistic thoughts and emotions as compassion, love, forbearance, and perseverance. The mind-training teachings are highly revered by the Tibetan people for their pragmatism and down-to-earth advice on coping with the various challenges and hardships that unavoidably characterize everyday human existence.
