There is no more powerful mind than bodhicitta. There is no more joyous mind than bodhicitta. For the accomplishment of one's own ultimate purpose, the awakening mind is supreme, and to accomplish the purpose of all other living beings there is nothing superior to bodhicitta. The awakening mind is the unsurpassable way to collect merit. To purify obstacles bodhicitta is supreme. For protection from interferences bodhicitta is supreme. It is the unique, all-encompassing method. Every kind of ordinary and supra-mundane power can be accomplished through bodhicitta. Thus, it is absolutely precious.
Even though we personally may find difficulty in immediate and thorough generation of such a mind, we should at least direct our thoughts towards it. To train our mind in such an ultimately altruistic manner from the very beginning of our practice of Dharma is vitally important.

Consciousness at the Crossroads: Conversations with the Dalai Lama on Brainscience and Buddhism
By: Dalai Lama
Our Price: $15.95
Members Price: $14.36

This book addresses some of the most fundamental and troublesome questions that had driven a wedge between the realms of Western science ans religion for centuries. Consciousness at the Crossroads is the result of a series of meetings between the Dalai Lama and a group of eminent neuroscientists and psychiatrists. The Dalai Lama regularly dedicates several days out of his busy schedule to engage in these kinds of meetings, which resulted in more than a decade of fruitful dialogue between Buddhism and Western science. Is the mind nothing more than an ephemeral side-effect of the brain's physical processes? Are there forms of consciousness so subtle that science has not yet identified them? How does consciousness begin? How do we know what we know? Buddhism, with its emphasis on empircal observation of mental processes, offers insight into these thorny questions, while the Dalai Lama's own incisive, clear approach and open-minded pursuit of knowledge both challenges and offers inspiration to Western scientists.

Two leading thinkers engage in a landmark conversation about human emotions and the pursuit of psychological fulfillment

At their first meeting, a remarkable bond was sparked between His Holiness the Dalai Lama, one of the world’s most revered spiritual leaders, and the psychologist Paul Ekman, whose groundbreaking work helped to define the science of emotions. Now these two luminaries share their thinking about science and spirituality, the bonds between East and West, and the nature and quality of our emotional lives.

In this unparalleled series of conversations, the Dalai Lama and Ekman prod and push toward answers to the central questions of emotional experience. What are the sources of hate and compassion? Should a person extend her compassion to a torturer—and would that even be biologically possible? What does science reveal about the benefits of Buddhist meditation, and can Buddhism improve through engagement with the scientific method? As they come to grips with these issues, they invite us to join them in an unfiltered view of two great traditions and two great minds.

Accompanied by commentaries on the findings of emotion research and the teachings of Buddhism, their interplay—amusing, challenging, eye-opening, and moving—guides us on a transformative journey in the understanding of emotions.

The Heart Sutra contains Buddhism's most direct, most succinct teaching about the true nature of our own being and of all reality.

Clarifying the meaning of the Buddhist term "emptiness", the Dalai Lama dispels misperceptions that it implies a nihilistic outlook or a philosophical view with no real implications in our lives, skillfully guiding the reader to a clear appreciation of a profound truth. Recently delivered to thousands of eager listeners in Mountain View, California, these teachings unfold through a series of increasingly subtle presentations, carefully building one atop another, in lucid language that will appeal both to readers with a great deal of familiarity with Buddhism and those with none at all.
The Essence of Heart Sutra truly is the definitive presentation of a critical Buddhist teaching - from one of the world's most beloved teachers.

"Compassion is what makes our lives meaningful. It is the source of all lasting happiness and joy. And it is the foundation of a good heart, the heart of one who acts out of a desire to help others. Through kindness, through affection, through honesty, through truth and justice toward all others we ensure our own benefit. This is not a matter for complicated theorizing. It is a matter of common sense. There is no denying that consideration of others is worthwhile. "

Compassion is the guiding principle of the bodhisattvas, those who vow to attain enlightenment in order to liberate all sentient beings from the suffering and confusion of imperfect existence. To this end, they must renounce all self-centered goals and consider only the well-being of others. The bodhisattvas' enemies are the ego, passion, and hatred, their weapons are generosity, patience, perseverance, and wisdom.
In Tibetan Buddhism, the Dalai Lama is considered to be a living embodiment of this spiritual ideal. His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama presents here a detailed manual of practical philosophy, based on The Way of the Bodhisattva (Bodhicharyavatara), a well-known text of Mahayana Buddhism written by Shantideva. The Dalai Lama explains and amplifies the text, alluding throughout to the experience of daily life and showing how anyone can develop bodhichitta, the wish for perfect enlightenment for the sake of others. This book will surely become a standard manual for all those who wish to make the bodhisattva ideal a living experience.

Mahamudra, the great sealing nature, refers to systems of meditation on both the conventional and ultimate natures of the mind.

All the world's major religions emphasize the importance of the practice of love, compassion and tolerance. this is particularly true in the Buddhist traditions, which unanimously state that compassion and love are the foundation of all paths of practice.

In this book the Dalai Lama shows how through the practice of patience and tolerance we can overcome the obstacles of anger and hatred.

Hidden Life of the Sixth Dalai Lama
Hidden Life of the Sixth Dalai Lama
By: Ngawang Lhundrup Dargy, Simon Wickham-Smith (translator)
Our Price: $30.00

The life of the Sixth Dalai Lama does not end with his supposed death at Kokonor in November 1706, on the way to Beijing, and an audience with the Manchu Emperor Kangxi. This book, the so-called Hidden Life, presents a very different Tsangyang Gyamtso, neither a louche poet nor a drinker, but a sober Buddhist practitioner, who chose to escape at Kokonor and to adopt the guise of a wandering monk, only appearing some years later, after many fantastical and mystical adventures, in what is today Inner Mongolia, where he oversaw monasteries and lived as a Buddhist teacher. The Hidden Life was written by a Mongolian monk in 1756, ten years following the death of the lama, his spiritual teacher, whom he identifies as Tsangyang Gyamtso, and in whose identity as the Sixth Dalai Lama he clearly has complete faith. However, as one might imagine, there is nowadays no agreement among the wider Tibetan, Mongolian and Tibetological scholarly community as to whether this man was a charlatan or deluded, or whether he was indeed the Sixth Dalai Lama. The text is divided into four parts. The first part gives an account of the background and birth of the Sixth Dalai Lama, while the opening section of the second part (which is in direct speech, dictated by the lama) continues on, through the political intrigue in Lhasa at the end of the seventeenth century, to the lama's escape at Kokonor. The remainder of the second part consists of a visionary narrative, in which the lama travels through Tibet and Nepal, and in which he encounters divine figures, yetis, zombies and a man with no head, all of which is presented as fact. The third and longest part is an account of the final thirty years of the lama's life, and his activity in Mongolia as an influential Buddhist teacher, including a lengthy and moving description of his death. The final part includes a list of his students and, most interestingly perhaps, a theological and philosophical justification for the coexistence of the Sixth and Seventh Dalai Lamas.

Of the hundreds of Buddhist tantras, the Kalachakra is one of the most important. In Tibet-where these esoteric teachings have been practised purely for a thousand years-and now in the West, this tantra has come to be especially associated with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, one of the greatest Buddhist teachers alive today.
The Dalai Lama has given the initiation into the practice of Kalachakra a number of times, and this book is based on the first that he gave in the West, in Madison, USA in 1981. It presents the series of initiations that authorize practice of the first of the two stages involved in tantra-the stage of generation, in which the practitioners visualize themselves as an ideal being, a Buddha. The initiation ritual is translated and interspersed with commentary from the Dalai Lama.
In the first part of the book the Dalai Lama's translator, Professor Jeffrey Hopkins, explains the tantric techniques of deity yoga and how it is possible, by practising them, to transform oneself into a Buddha. He discusses the importance of having an altruistic motivation for practising these techniques, and includes the marvellous stanzas of Tok-may-sang-bo, The Thirty-seven Practices of a Bodhisattva. He describes the Kalachakra mandala and how it relates to the initiation, discusses the procedure of the initiation itself, recounts in brief the lives of the authors, both the Dalai Lama and Kay-drup, and outlines a short history of the Kalachakra Tantra.
Also included are three versions of the Six-Session Yoga, the rites for daily practice.
This is the first time that a tantric initiation ritual has been explained in detail and published in a Western language. The special techniques for transforming body, speech and mind into completely altruistic expression are presented for the benefit of not only those who intend, after taking the initiation, to practise these techniques, but also for those who want to learn about this remarkable system of spiritual practice.

Born out of a decade of discussion between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and international management consultant Laurens van den Muyzenberg, The Leader’s Way is the unique meeting of two worlds: the global business landscape and Buddhism. At first sight, these seem to be an unlikely pairing. After a closer look, however, the best business practices and Buddhist principles in fact have much in common; both are concerned with making rational, holistic decisions and turning them into responsible, effective action. Indeed, the teachings of Buddhism have much to offer business leaders.
The world today faces many unique challenges: the worst global recession in over seventy-five years, with millions out of jobs and entire economies in a tailspin; billions of people living in abject poverty; the imminent threat of an environmental meltdown. Even prosperous businesses and leaders feel insecure about the future. A new kind of leadership is needed–one that sees events as they really are and understands the interconnectedness, impermanence, and interdependence of individuals, companies, and the global economic system.

Meaning of Life From a Buddhist Perspective
Meaning of Life, Buddhist Perspectives on Cause and Effect
By: Dalai Lama
Our Price: $15.95
Members Price: $14.36

Each of us struggles with the existential questions of meaning, purpose, and responsibility. In The Meaning of Life, the Dalai Lama examines these questions from the Buddhist perspective, skillfully guiding us to a clearer understanding that can liberate us from the prison of selfishness and suffering. The Dalai Lama bases his explanations on the Buddha's teachings of dependent arising, showing how every aspect of our suffering -- unhappiness, pain, even old age and death -- is ultimately rooted in our misunderstanding of our true nature.
Through detailed discussion and lively questions-and-answers, the teachings of the Meaning of Life address the myriad challenges we may meet daily -- dealing with aggression from both within and without; facing illness and helping someone who is dying; expanding our capacity to feel love for all beings; and reconciling personal responsibliity with the doctrine of selflessness -- all suffused with the Dalai Lama's incomparable intelligence, wit, and kindness.<

A correct understanding of the minds nature not only illuminates the many treatises on Buddhist philosophy, it is the key to success in meditation and to the profound insights at the heart of the Buddhas path.
The text at the center of this book, the Wish-Fulfilling Jewel of the Oral Tradition by Khonton Peljor Lhundrub (1561-1637), manages to combine both theory and practical instructions for meditating on the nature of mind in a manner that is easily accessible. Especially interesting is its nonsectarian approach, with liberal citations from across the Tibetan Buddhist spectrum. His Holinesss the Dalai Lamas broad-ranging overview of this important text in the first part of this book insightfully distills some of the most central themes of Buddhism: why the mind is so essential to the tradition, how science and Buddhism can benefit from mutual interaction, what distinguishes subtle and grosser levels of consciousness, how the different schools of Tibetan Buddhism elaborate such a distinction, and how all of these schools have a common source in the scholarly tradition of Nalanda Monastery, the greatest Buddhist university of ancient India. It is a profound and erudite teaching, both in scope and detail, and brings the reader closer to a fresh and direct experience of the all-important topic.
As little has been written in Western languages about Khonton Rinpoche, this volume also includes a short biography of this interesting figure, who was a guru to the Great Fifth Dalai Lama.
Meditations on the Lower Tantras

A Stairway for Ascending to Tusita Buddha-field
This work entitled "Meditations on the Lower Tantras" from the collected works of the II. V, VII & XIII Dalai Lamas makes no attempt to deal with the philosophical aspects of the Lower Tantras. Rather, its aim is simply to present a range of meditation manuals from the first stage of these systems. It should be noted here that most practitioners of the Higher Tantras also practice the Lower Tantras either from time to time or as a lifetime daily meditational endeavor. The First Dalai Lama, for example, a renowned practitioner of the Kalachakra Tantra, was even more famous for his applications to the Tara and Amitayus systems. Almost every Tibetan Yogi today practices a daily sadhana of one or more of the Lower Tantra deities dealt with within the covers of this work.

In this luminous presentation, the Dalai Lama lays out the Middle Way-"the way of the intelligent person" who approaches all matters, including matters of faith and devotion, with the highest spirit of critical inquiry and does so without falling into the traps of fixed ideas or extreme views. With fresh emphasis, this peerless and beloved teacher links Tibetan Buddhism to its deep roots in the ancient scholastic tradition of Nalanda University and to the profound analytical teachings of the seminal Indian master Nagarjuna. As the Dalai Lama explores in depth Nagarjuna's Fundamental Stanzas on the Middle Way-a text of radical importance to the entirety of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition-he illuminates such subtle and easily misunderstood topics as the nature of self and no-self, dependent origination, and the differing roles of relative and absolute truths. This volume also includes a rich exploration of the Tibetan master Tsongkhapa's Three Principal Aspects of the Path, offering the reader an opportunity to put these matters of deepest philosophical import into direct practice.

For over a decade, a small group of scientists and philosophers-members of the Mind and Life Institute-have met regularly to explore the intersection between science and the spirit. At one of these meetings, the themes discussed were both fundamental and profound: can physics, chemistry, and biology explain the mystery of life? How do our philosophical assumptions influence science and the ethics we bring to biotechnology? And how does an ancient spiritual tradition throw new light on these questions?

Pier Luigi Luisi not only reproduces this dramatic, cross-cultural dialogue, in which world-class scientists, philosophers, and Buddhist scholars develop a holistic approach to the scientific exploration of reality, but also adds scientific background to their presentations, as well as supplementary discussions with prominent participants and attendees. Interviews with His Holiness the Karmapa, the Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard, and the actor and longtime human rights advocate Richard Gere take the proceedings into new directions, enriching the material with personal viewpoints and lively conversation about such topics as the origin of matter, the properties of cells, the nature of evolution, and the ethics of genetic manipulation.

A keen study of character, Luisi incorporates his own amusing observations into this fascinating dialogue, painting a very human portrait of some of our greatest-and most intimidating-thinkers. Deeply textured and cleverly crafted, Mind and Life is an excellent opportunity for any reader to join in the debate surrounding this cutting-edge field of inquiry.
