Antiquities of Zhang Zhung, Vol.1
Antiquities of Zhang Zhung, Vol.1: Archaic Residential Monuments
A Comprehensive Inventory of Pre-Buddhist Archaeological Monuments in the Tibetan Upland
By: John Vincent Bellezza
Our Price: $46.75
Members Price: $42.08

A millennium ago, Buddhist domination of Tibet spawned a new civilization, one in which the celebrated Lamaist religions of Bön and Buddhism came to hold sway. The inexorable march of time and the ascent of the new religious order slowly but surely clouded the memory of the earlier cultural heritage. As a result, many of the ancient achievements of the Upper Tibetan people were forgotten. All that remains are preserved in the impressive monumental traces of the region. Antiquities of Zhang Zhung attempts to reclaim these past glories by systematically describing the visible physical remains left by the ancient inhabitants of Upper Tibet.

This book has now been in use for a century, consulted and cherished by literate pilgrims from all over the Tibetan world. It also gained the attention of foreign pioneers of Tibetan studies in their search for non-liturgical literature. Akester has revisited the guide, dividing the 200 plus entries in the guide to 18 chapters in the three main regions, each beginning with a translation of the relevant section of the guide and then going through it place by place. In each case the location is pinpointed, the history and folklore summarised in varying degrees of detail, and the buildings described as they were before 1959. This updated volume is for modern scholars, researchers, and those interested in the spiritual history of Tibet.

Wheel of Life: Buddhist Perspectives on Cause and Effect
By: Dalai Lama
Our Price: $17.95
Members Price: $16.16

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.
