Approaching the Great Perfection
Approaching the Great Perfection
By: Sam van Schaik
Our Price: $29.95
Members Price: $26.96

Dzogchen, the Great Perfection, is the highest meditative practice of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Approaching the Great Perfection looks at a seminal figure of this lineage, Jigme Lingpa, an eighteenth-century scholar and meditation master whose cycle of teachings , the Longchen Nyingtig, has been handed down through generations as a complete path to enlightenment. Ten of Jigme Lingpa's texts are presented here, along with extensive analysis by van Schaik of a core within Buddhism: Does enlightenment develop gradually, or does it come all at once? Though these two positions are often portrayed by modern scholars as entrenched polemical views, van Schaik explains that both tendencies are present within each of the Tibetan Buddhist schools.

Bonpo Dzogchen Teachings
By: Lopon Tenzin Namdak & John Myrdhin Reynolds (editor)
Our Price: $19.95
Members Price: $17.96

Nowadays there are two principal philosophical traditions followed by Tibetan Lamas. The first is found among the Sarmapas, or Newer Schools, which employ the Prasangika Madhyamaka view of Chandrakirti, not only in explicating the real meaning of the Sutra system but also in their interpretation of the Tantras. The second is found among the two Older Schools, the Nyingmapa and the Bonpo, which emphasize the Dzogchen point of view in elucidating their understanding of the Higher Tantras. Among the Older Schools, Dzogchen, “the Great Perfection”, which lies beyond the process of Tantric transformation, is regarded as the quintessential teaching of the Buddha, pointing directly to the Nature of Mind and its intrinsic awareness, known as Rigpa.

Following the fall of the Tibetan empire and the ensuing "period of fragmentation," the twelfth and thirteenth centuries saw tremendous religious efflorescence in Tibet.

Buddhahood Without Meditation
By: Dudjom Lingpa
Our Price: $23.95
Members Price: $21.56

Widely known by its subtitle, Nang-jang (Refining One's Perception), presents the view of the Great Perfection through the approach known as t'hreg-chhod (cutting through solidity). It is a direct transmission so powerful that just hearing it read aloud ensures that the listener will escape the suffering of cyclic existence. The nineteenth-century master Dudjom Lingpa (1835-1904) received these teachings in visionary dialogue with fourteen enlightened beings, including Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani, Longchhenpa, and Saraha.

The Dudjom lineage, based on the hidden treasure teachings revealed by Dudjom Lingpa and his immediate rebirth, His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-1987), late head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, is one of the principal modern lineages of the Great Perfection.

As a preliminary practice (Tibetan:ngon-dro) it begins with sutra meditations on the value and potential of this human life, its frailty and the inevitability of death, the infallibility of karmic actions and their consequences, and the suffering of worldly existence. Following the recognition of these common truths it continues, leading the spiritual aspirant into refuge in the Three Supreme Jewels and, for a Mahayanist (whose selfless attitude is based on pure love and compassion), into activation of the awakening mind - bodhicitta. The work then unites these meditations with a series of practices exclusive to the tantric path - Vajrasattva purification, mandala offering, union with the spiritual master, the chod practice of cutting duality at its source and so forth.

(Foreword by Bhakha Tulku Pema Rigdzin) "The five texts translated from Tibetan into English in this book are considered the first transmission of Dzogchen Ati to Tibet (Snga 'gyur lnga).

The great masters have all attained realization through Dzogchen, contemporary masters all owe their status to Dzogchen, and any attainment in the future will be based on the precepts of Dzogchen Ati."

From Reductionism to Creativity
From Reductionism to Creativity: Rdzogs-Chen and the New Sciences of Mind
By: Guenther, Herbert V.
Our Price: $29.95
Members Price: $26.96

"Dr. Herbert V. Guenther, foremost scholar and translator of Buddhism, has long been most forthright in his insistence that, as a living tradition, Buddhism must be communicated in the living language of our time. Rather than entombing Buddhism in concepts appropriate for another era, he has offered us translations and commentaries that, while being strictly faithful to the meaning of the originals, have been framed in contemporary language. Buddhism is the study of mind - its essence, nature, and functioning - and as scientists begin to turn their attention to mind, it is not surprising that we find a wealth of insight in the traditional Buddhist texts that are directly relevant to the scientific study of mind."

Mahamudra and Atiyoga
By: Giuseppe Baroetto
Our Price: $17.50
Members Price: $15.75

Mahamudra and Atiyoga are particular forms of Buddhist spirituality: Mahamudra, the ‘Great Seal’, is considered by Tibetan teachers to be the essence of both the short path and the final instructions that conclude the gradual common and esoteric paths of Buddhist doctrines; Atiyoga or ‘Extreme Union’ represents the Buddhist Dzogchen or ‘Great Completeness’ doctrine. This volume comprises commentaries on and the transliteration of some ancient Tibetan texts, authored by Buddhist mystics and Tantric teachers of Mahamudra and Atiyoga. Translated from the Italian, the book is based on oral instructions received by the author from Tibetan teachers. It discusses the insights of the sacred texts and the commentaries on them with respect to the nature of consciousness and phenomenal existence, meditation on guru and deity, Tantric sexuality, and the introduction to and realization of non-dual awareness. Simple to understand, the commentaries explain the many meanings of the texts and the symbols and images used. They motivate readers to observe for themselves and personally experience the significance of the traditions and the application of their methods of practice. The volume will be useful to all students and scholars of Buddhist studies, particularly of the Buddhist Tantric tradition, and of Tibetan religion and culture.

The first part of the text focuses on the direct introduction to the mind and the calm abiding with the well-known methods of fixation on the white A and the special Dzogchen preliminary practices of Rushen for searching the mind. The essential point of investigation includes the fixation on the white A and the Rushen, as well as the study of texts and teachings on the Dzogchen view. Thus it is not only a reflection on the mind and the nature of mind, but rather than following our thoughts and our consciousness we trace them back to their origin and discover their nature which is empty.

Then, drawing from his enormous erudition and profound experience, Karma Chagme gives exceptionally lucid instructions on the two phases of Dzogchen practice - the Breakthrough and the Leap-over - followed by an accessible introduction to the practice of the transference of consciousness at the time of death.

Naked Seeing: The Great Perfection, the Wheel of Time, and Visionary Buddhism in Renaissance Tibet
By: Christopher Hatchell
Our Price: $35.00
Members Price: $31.50

Buddhism is in many ways a visual tradition, with its well-known
practices of visualization, its visual arts, its epistemological
writings that discuss the act of seeing, and its literature filled with
images and metaphors of light. Some Buddhist traditions are also
visionary, advocating practices by which meditators seek visions that
arise before their eyes. Naked Seeing investigates such practices in the
context of two major esoteric traditions, the Wheel of Time (Kalacakra)
and the Great Perfection (Dzogchen).

(Previously published as "Eye of the Storm.")

These early, foundational Dzogchen texts clear, lyrical, and rich in metaphor were smuggled into Tibet in the eighth century on white silk, written in goat-milk ink that would become visible only when exposed to heat. These five texts are the root of Dzogchen practice, the main practice of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Vairotsana, a master among the first generation of Tibetan Buddhists, reveals here a truth that is at once simple and deeply profound: that all existence life itself, everyone one of us is originally perfect, just as is. Keith Dowmans sparkling translation and commentary provide insight and historical background, walking the reader through the truths encountered in this remarkable book.

This manual of Tibetan meditation simply and thoroughly presents the profound Dzogchen and Mahamudra systems of practice. Karma Chagme sets forth the stages of meditation practice including the cultivation of meditative quiescence and insight, the experiential identification of awareness, and the highest steps of Mahamudra and Atiyoga leading to perfect enlightenment in one lifetime. Drawing from his enormous textual erudition and mastery of Tibetan oral tradition, he shows how these two meditative systems can be unified into a single , integrated approach to realizing the ultimate nature of consciousness. Karma Chagme was a major lineage-holder of the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and his writings have also become central to the Payul Nyingma order, making him an ideal figure to integrate two of the great meditation systems of Tibet: Mahamudra and Atiyoga.

Nowadays there are two principal philosophical traditions followed by Tibetan Lamas. The first is found among the Sarmapas, or Newer Schools, which employ the Prasangika Madhyamaka view of Chandrakirti, not only in explicating the real meaning of the Sutra system but also in their interpretation of the Tantras. The second is found among the two Older Schools, the Nyingmapa and the Bonpo, which emphasize the Dzogchen point of view in elucidating their understanding of the Higher Tantras. Among the Older Schools, Dzogchen, “the Great Perfection”, which lies beyond the process of Tantric transformation, is regarded as the quintessential teaching of the Buddha, pointing directly to the Nature of Mind and its intrinsic awareness, known as Rigpa.

Dzogchen, meaning "great perfection" in Tibetan, is an advanced practice associated particularly with Bon, the native religion of Tibet, and the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism. Both these traditions describe their teaching as comprising 'nine Ways' or paths of practice leading to enlightenment or realization, and in both classifications, Dzogchen is the ninth and highest Way. While its immediate associations are with these two traditions, Dzogchen is now taught in all Tibetan sects. In this book, Anne Klein, an American scholar of Buddhism, and Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, a native Tibetan who was one of the first to bring Dzogchen teachings to the west, provide a study and translation of the Authenticity of Open Awareness, a foundational text of the Bon Dzogchen tradition. This will be the first time any text from this tradition has been translated into any Western language, and as such will be a major contribution to the study of Tibetan religion and Eastern thought more generally. Klein and Rinpoche also provide extensive introductory and explanatory material that situates the text in the context of Tibetan thought and makes it accessible to nonspecialists.

An illuminating look at key aspects of Tibetan Buddhist practice - of interest to many practitioners - is presented in this practical and interesting book. Through demonstrating the interrelationship of the outer, inner, and secret teachings and a textual analysis of the words of four renowned Dzogchen yogis, it makes clear that the practice of Bodhichitta is a necessary aspect of every practice within Tibetan Buddhism.  Unlike other books that present either the teachings of Bodhischitta or the teachings of Dzogchen as their own system of practice, this book presents them not even as complementary practices, but as a deconstructed inner and outer which are fundamentally intertwined.

Vajra Wisdom presents the commentaries of two great nineteenth-century Nyingma masters that guide practitioners engaged in development stage practice through a series of straightforward instructions. The rarity of this kind of material in English makes it indispensable for practitioners and scholars alike.

The goal of development stage meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition is to directly realize the inseparability of phenomena and emptiness. Preceded by initiation and oral instructions, the practitioner arrives at this view through the profound methods of deity visualization, mantra recitation, and meditative absorption.

This comprehensive selection describes the early Dzogchen masters lives and what they taught, with particular emphasis paid to the events that took place before the teachings were transmitted to Tibet.

Seen as the culmination of all practice and study by the New Translation Schools of Tibetan Buddhism, the experience of Mahamudra, or "great symbol," is an overwhelming sense of extraordinary clarity, totally open and nondualistic. Dzogchen, or "great perfection," is the ultimate teaching according to the Nyingma tradition and also represents the pinnacle of spiritual development.
Both lineages of meditation practice emphasize the ultimate state of awareness within and the clear and luminous nature of the mind. In this book, Dzogchen Ponlop, holder of the wisdom lineages of both Dzogchen and Mahamudra, presents the view and practices of these two traditions with a pragmatic approach and informal style. He teaches that by applying ourselves to these practices, we can all experience our world more directly.

Just as the images on television are nothing more than light, so are our experiences merely the dance of awareness.
Often we form attachment to, or feel enslaved by, these experiences. But they are only reflections. As easily as television pictures vanish when the channel is changed, the power of out experiences fades if we penetrate to the heart of reality - the light of the natural mind within everyone.
You Are the Eyes of the World presents a method for discovering awareness everywhere, all the time. This book does not discuss how to turn ordinary life off, it does not describe how to create beautiful spiritual experiences; it shows how to live within the source of all life, the unified field where experience takes place.

Zurchungpa's Eighty Chapters of Personal Advice was the final teaching given by the great Nyingma master Zurchung Sherab Trakpa. The original text consists of 580 maxims, covering the entire path of Dzogchen from fundamental teachings through to a series of pith instructions that bring the Dzogchen view to life. Much of the meaning of these often cryptic instructions could be lost to the reader without further explanations, so this book contains a complete, detailed commentary on Zurchungpa's text by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Originally intended as essential instructions for a group of practitioners in three-year retreat, it will undoubtedly serve as an indispensable guide to anyone who seriously wishes to practice the Great Perfection.
