Noble One Called Point of Passage Wisdom
Noble One Called Point of Passage Wisdom, A Great Vehicle Sutra
By: The Word of the Buddha from the Kangyur, translated by Tony Duff and Sergey Dudko
Our Price: $15.00
Members Price: $13.50

This book contains a translation of an actual sutra of the Buddha. It is a very short but particularly important sutra from the Great Vehicle teachings given in the third turning of the wheel. The sutra is important for two reasons. Firstly, it is one of the five condensed sutras, sutras which sum up the five very large sutras of the Great Vehicle sutras the Avatamsaka, and so on. This sutra sums up the meaning of the major sutra called The Nirvana Sutra in which the Buddha gives many final instructions before passing away. Therefore, it is regarded that the Point of Passage Wisdom sutra teaches final teachings of the Buddha in a very condensed way. This sutra is so important that the early Dharma Kings of Tibet recited it daily.

The "Prayer of Maitreya," found in the forty-first chapter of the Ratnakuta Great Vehicle

The Buddha himself said in a Lesser Vehicle sutra:
Son of the family!  You are to become expert in the skandhas.  You are
to become expert in the āyatanas.  You are to become expert in the dhātus.  You are
to become expert in pratītyasaṃutpāda.  You are to become expert in topics.  You are
to become expert in non-topics.

With these words, the Buddha indicated that there are six topics which must be learned,
at least to some extent, by every one of his followers.  Although the Buddha gave these
teachings in the Lesser Vehicle, they are a necessary foundation for practitioners of
all levels, from those studying the Lesser Vehicle to those practising Mahamudra and
Great Completion.
Sutra Petitioned by the Householder Uncouth
Sutra Petitioned by the Householder Uncouth: A Teaching of the Buddha Showing All-Knowing Wisdom and the Householder's Way
translated by Tony Duff and Tamas Agocs
Our Price: $25.00
Members Price: $22.50

This book presents a Great Vehicle sutra of the third turning of the wheel of dharma which has not been translated until now and which is regarded as specially important for two reasons.  Firstly the sutra deals with the issue of whether a bodhisattva can live a householders life and effectively practice dharma at a high level.  In the time when the Buddha gave this discourse it was regarded in Indian culture as a whole that it was necessary to leave the household and additionally to become ordained as a monk or nun in order to practice dharma at the highest level.  The Buddha ends the sutra by saying that not only is it possible to practise whilst living as a householder but that a householder bodhisattva can be a much more capable and effective bodhisattva than a bodhisattva living the celibate life of an ordained bodhisattva.

Theory and Practice of Other Emptiness Taught Through Milarepas Songs
Theory and Practice of Other Emptiness Taught Through Milarepas Songs, translated by Tony Duff
Our Price: $20.00
Members Price: $18.00

Other Emptiness, or Zhantong in Tibetan, is the most profound view
taught by the Buddha.  It is the very basis of the majority of Tibetan
Buddhist schools, though it has been overshadowed by the views of some
schools who have argued against it.  As a result, it has not been well
understood in the West, where it is often thought of as a complicated
and possibly questionable philosophical view.  In fact, Other Emptiness
is the penultimate teaching of the sutras and the root of all tantras.  
This book shows for the first time that the Buddha did not teach this
ultimate of views as a complicated philosophy for scholarly argument but
as a practical view to be used for the attainment of enlightenment.

way of practice of those who just practise the essence of their own
minds and who develop realization that way.  Through this, they
eventually become realized in the system and wise to it; they become
Realized Old Dogs.

Zhechen Gyaltshab IV, Padma Namgyal, was one of the principal masters of Zhechen Monastery in East Tibet, the monastery where Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche made his home before leaving Tibet. The Zhechen Gyaltsabs have always been regarded as highly learned and accomplished and this comes through in the clarity of the instructions in his text. We provide many texts about Thorough Cut practice and this one adds something further. This text is very well-known in the Tibetan tradition as one of several texts that are particularly useful to anyone who is practising Thorough Cut of innermost Great Completion (Dzogpa Chenpo). The text consists of two short teachings of very practical instruction. Both teachings give a strong feeling of no-nonsense dharma and each one provides another take on the practice of Thorough Cut. For instance, the second teaching emphasizes the point of letting mind be as it is. The book is ideal for anyone who is practising Thorough Cut. As with our other books on innermost Dzogchen, we strongly advise that you not purchase the book unless you have had the necessary instructions.
