Chying Tobden Dorje (17871848), a Buddhist yogi of far-eastern Tibet, composed a multivolume masterwork that traces the path of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism from beginning to end and that is still cherished as a main source of instruction by the Ngakpa, or non-monastic practice lineages.

Written by a lay practitioner for laypeople, it is intended to be accessible, informative, and above all, practical.

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.

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
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.

This book discusses a wide range of topics connected with the notion of buddha nature as presented in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and includes an overview of the sūtra sources of the tathāgatagarbha teachings and the different ways of explaining the meaning of this term. It includes new translations of the Maitreya treatise Mahāyānottaratantra (Ratnagotravibhāga), the primary Indian text on the subject, its Indian commentaries, and two (hitherto untranslated) commentaries from the Tibetan Kagy tradition. Most important, the translators introduction investigates in detail the meditative tradition of using the Mahāyānottaratantra as a basis for Mahāmudrā instructions and the Shentong approach.
