Buddha Shakyamuni taught the Dharma in order to wake up all sentient beings and dispel the hindrances that have bothered us for such a long time. These negativities will not just go away or be cleared up by anything except teachings on love, compassion, and wisdom. Why can't the Buddha just wash away our difficulties? We create the dense stains of our own negative emotions-therefore, only we can remove them.

Liberating Duality with Wisdom Display
Liberating Duality with Wisdom Display: Eight Emanations of Guru Padmasambhava
By: Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
Our Price: $22.00
Members Price: $19.80

Guru Padmasambhava is generally referred to as Guru Rinpoche, which means precious master. Guru Rinpoche is a buddha, a fully awakened one. He did not become enlightened gradually, or start practicing the teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni and eventually gain enlightenment. Guru Rinpoche incarnated as a totally enlightened being. Through his form, primordial wisdom manifests in the world to benefit all sentient beings. Guru Rinpoche is a direct reincarnation of Buddha Shakyamuni. Buddha Shakyamuni said, Eight years after my mahaparinirvana, a remarkable being with the name Padmasambhava will appear in the center of a lotus and reveal the highest teaching concerning the ultimate state of the true nature, bringing great benefit to all sentient beings. The Buddha also said that Padmasambhava would be an emanation of Buddha Amitabha and Avalokiteshvara, and referred to him as the embodiment of all the buddhas of the three times. Buddha Shakyamuni mainly presented Hinayana and Sutra Mahayana teachings, while Guru Padmasambhava taught the Vajrayana. Both revealed the complete and perfect path to awakening so that individuals of all capacities would benefit. The absolute level of the Buddhas teaching is beyond conception. If it didnt go beyond the conceptual level, there would be no need to change our normal way of understanding things. To help us realize the primordial nature, Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Padmasambhava repeatedly taught that we must transcend clinging to our ordinary dualistic conceptions, narrow attitudes, close mindedness, traditional rules, beliefs, and limitations. The enlightened activities of Guru Rinpoches eight emanations are especially powerful and effective in destroying the solidity of our dualistic concepts and fixed opinions, and in awakening us to true freedom. Includes the following practice sadhanas as well: (1) Prayer to the Guru Trikaya, by Padmasambhava; (2) The Swift Fulfillment of Wishes: A Prayer to Invoke the Fulfillment of the Most Essential and Highest Aspirations of the Great Master Padmasambhava, by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo; (3) The Prayer that Swiftly Accomplishes All Wishes, by Jigme Lingpa; (4) The Prayer to Guru Rinpoche that Swiftly Removes Obstacles and Fulfills All Wishes, by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche; (5) Tengye Monlam, An Aspiration for the Spread of the Nyingma Teachings: The Oral Transmission that Gladdens the Dharma Kings, by Mipham Jamyang Namgyal Gyatso. Published by Dharma Samudra. Includes extensive glossary and illustrations of each of the emanations of Guru Rinpoche; 203 pages.

Opening the Clear Vision of the Mind Only School
By: Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
Our Price: $20.00
Members Price: $18.00

The Mahayana has seven distinct characteristics that distinguish it from the Hinayana. Here Rinpoches present these characteristics according to the teachings of Longchenpa, along with extensive commetary on the Twenty Verses of the great master Vasubandhu. Buddha Shakyamuni declared, "Oh Bodhisttvas, the three realms are nothing other than mind." The Cittamatrins use these words as their point of departure.
Opening the Clear Vision of the Vaibhashika and Sautrantika Schools
By: Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
Our Price: $20.00
Members Price: $18.00

The Vaibhashikas believe that relative truth is that which can be broken down into parts, whereas ultimate truth is indivisible. The Sautrantikas accept the selflessness of persons but not the selflessness of phenomena. The Cittamatrins accept the selflessness of both self and phenomena, but believe in the true existence of mind. Finally, the Madhyamikas claim that things appear to be real and substantial, but are actually without inherent, true existence. The various tenets of these four schools form the basis for understanding the entire scope of the Buddha's teachings. Thus, it is essential to gain an understanding of the fundamental schools of Vaibhashika and Sautrantika on the road to ultimate insight.

Opening the Wisdom Door of the Madhyamaka School
By: Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
Our Price: $20.00
Members Price: $18.00

In this third year of our continuing investigation of Buddhist philosophy, we begin our study of Madhyamaka, the Middle Way school. Madhyamaka is a direct teaching on the essential nature, free from all extremes. It can be divided into two categories: true reality Madhyamaka and word Madhyamaka. True reality Madhyamaka is the absolute, inexpressible nature the Mother of all the Victorious Ones; word Madhyamaka describes this absolute nature. The practice of true reality Madhyamaka is divided into ground, path and fruit, whereas word Madhyamaka is divided into teachings and commentaries. The commentarial tradition is characterized by Prasangika and Svatantrika Madhyamaka, and Svatantrika itself includes the Sautrantika and Yogachara Madhyamaka schools.
Opening the Wisdom Door of the Outer Tantras
Opening the Wisdom Door of the Outer Tantras: Refining Awareness Through Ascetic Ritual and Purification Practice
By: Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
Our Price: $20.00
Members Price: $18.00

According to the Outer Tantras, one's own awarenessknown as "self-suchness"is ultimately beyond all the aggregates, beyond conceptuality, and beyond self-identity. It is free from all dualistic notions. This is the basis of visualizing oneself as the deity. If we don't maintain such a view in our practice of the tantras, we are simply imagining ourselves to be putting on the ornaments, or facade, of the deity. In other words, we are holding on to our sense of self as well as our strong emotions and limited conceptions. This means our practice is not really coming along. By harmonizing our practice of all the precious Dharma teachings, rather than focusing on their differences, the Outer Tantra techniques will activate and ignite our visualization and meditation practice of the Inner Tantras.
 
The Samten Chima, or Grand Samadhi Tantra, is among the most important of all the Outer Tantras in general and the Kriya Tantras in particular. It is called "grand" because it describes in detail exact instructions on how to practice with mantras according to the Secret Vajrayana. When we study, contemplate, and meditate on these teachings, we should always recognize that what we are discussing does not just apply to Kriyatantrait also applies to Upatantra, Yogatantra, and each of the Inner Tantras. Since the Samten Chima includes pith instructions on all the tantra teachings, it establishes the foundation of both the Outer and Inner Tantras.
Opening the Wisdom Door of the Rangtong and Shentong Views
Opening the Wisdom Door of the Rangtong and Shentong Views: A Brief Explanation of the One Taste of the Second and Third Turnings of the Wheel of Dharma
By: Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
Our Price: $20.00
Members Price: $18.00

The principal subject of the 2007 shedra is a famous text by Mipham Rinpoche entitled the Tongthun Senge Ngaro (Lion's Roar That Explains Tathagatagarbha). This treatise explores such topics as the provisional (drangdon) and definitive (ngedon) meaning of the teachings presented in the three turnings of the wheel of Dharma; the distinguishing features of the Rangtong and Shentong views; and the differences between the Prasangikas and Svatantrikas in terms of the methods they use to approach and explain the ultimate nature. Of course, the main focus of Mipham Rinpoche's work is tathagatagarbha, or buddha-nature.

 Many Tibetan Buddhist masters have extensively debated the authentic nature of mind, known as tathagatagarbha. Generally speaking, Rangtongpas believe tathagatagarbha to be free from all dualities and extremes, claiming that it is empty of intrinsic reality. Thus they assert buddha-nature to be "empty of itself." In contrast, Shentongpas claim that buddha-nature is actually full of the beautiful, natural qualities of mind, which shine forth unobstructedly after the temporary defilements and obscurations have been removed. Shentongpas therefore believe buddha-nature to be "empty of other," or empty of the habitual negativities and obscurations that cloud the beauty of our inherent nature. As explained by the great Mipham Rinpoche in the Tongthun Senge Ngaro, the Nyingma school does not see any essential contradiction between these two positions. By uniting these views, Mipham clarifies how Buddha Shakyamuni's three turnings of the wheel of Dharma are perfectly compatible and harmonious.

Turning the Wisdom Wheel of the Nine Golden Chariots

Our Price: $20.00
Members Price: $18.00

Buddha Shakyamuni laid out many categories and levels of teaching according to the particular needs, desires, intelligence, and sensibilities of practitioners. In response to these differences, the Buddha gave a wide variety of teachings that were specifically suited to the unique characteristics of individuals. In this way, the Buddha skillfully ensured that all beings could benefit from the Dharma. But despite the inconceivably vast scope of these instructions, the purpose of each one is the same: to remove the obscurations and suffering of all beings and reveal our innate nature, which is the nature of everything.
