"Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine" is the first

relationship between the Tibetan art and science of healing (Sowa
Rigpa), Buddhism, and the visual arts. This book is dedicated to the
history, theory, and practice of Tibetan medicine, a unique and complex
system of understanding body and mind, treating illness, and fostering
health and well-being. Rooted in classical Indian medicine, Sowa Rigpa
has been influenced by Chinese, Greco-Arab, and indigenous medical
knowledge and practices and further developed within the context of
Buddhism in Tibet.

The Illusive Play: The Autobiography of the Fifth Dalai Lama is an
English translation of the autobiography of Ngagwang Lobzang Gyatsho,
the Fifth Dalai Lama (1617-1682). The work is of exceptional value
because it has taken such care to give a precise chronology throughout
its entire length. Lobzang Gyatsho s autobiography is therefore a
veritable witness to the life and culture of Tibet in the 17th century,
which was a formative period for the establishment of the Tibetan
Buddhist theocracy. In addition, the major events in which he himself
played a pivotal role are presented: the overthrow of the king of Tsang,
the creation of the Tibetan theocratic state with the founding of the
Gaden Photrang government, the building of the Potala Palace and the
undertaking of major diplomatic relationships with foreign powers, such
as the Mongols and the Manchu empire. All these events are either
alluded to or fully recounted in a personal way, so that on reading them
one cannot help but feel the momentous occasions which the author
recounts from his own experience.

This book has now been in use for a century, consulted and cherished by literate pilgrims from all over the Tibetan world.

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.

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).
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
Pre-Order

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.
