Buddhapada and the Bodhisattva Path, Analayo
Buddhapada and the Bodhisattva Path
By: Analayo
Pre-Order
Our Price: $25.00
Members Price: $22.50

Building on his ground-breaking The Genesis of the Bodhisattva Ideal, with the present monograph Bhikkhu Analayo approaches a closely related topic from the perspective of the bodily dimension as evident in the thirty-two marks with which, according to tradition, the Buddha was endowed. The study begins by proposing that a cross-fertilization between text and art has influenced the conception of one of these marks, namely the wheel-marks on the soles of the Buddha's feet. By way of a comparative study of the early discourses, Analayo proceeds to show how the thirty-two marks - initially nearly imperceptible features - came to be more clearly visible and acquired salvific power. Eventually, he argues, these turned into a psychosomatic chart for the bodhisattva path and thereby set a precedent for the prediction (commonplace in later Buddhist doctrine) that assures an aspiring bodhisattva of becoming a Buddha in the future.

Communities of Memory and Interpretation
Communities of Memory and Interpretation: Reimagining and Reinventing the Past in East Asian Buddhism
By: Jim Mario Poceski
Pre-Order
Our Price: $33.95
Members Price: $30.56

Communities of Memory and Interpretation is a fascinating collection of well researched essays that all feature important methodological reflections in addition to detailed and insightful textual analysis or fieldwork scholarship. The volume consistently highlights the theme of how the respective traditions developed a sense of legitimacy and legacy based on canonicity and the various repetitions and reversals of at times disturbing or perplexing paradigms and exegetical strategies to establish and maintain lineal identity and authority.

Copper-coloured Palace: Iconography of the rNin ma Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism
Copper-coloured Palace: Iconography of the rNin ma School of Tibetan Buddhism, 3 Volumes
By: Adelheid Herrmann-Pfandt
Pre-Order
Our Price: $450.00
Members Price: $405.00

The rNin ma (Nyingma) pas are the only minority school of Tibetan Buddhism whose iconography differs markedly from the mainstream iconography re-presented by the gSar ma pa or new schools. Scholarly works on rNin ma iconography are quite rare and have so far never covered the whole of the rNin ma pantheon. This book has been written as an attempt to fill this gap, trying to supply introductory as well as comprehensive information, meant for people interested in Tibetan Buddhism, whether lay persons, practitioners, or scholars.

Eighth Karmapa's Life and his Interpretation of the Great Seal
Eighth Karmapa's Life and his Interpretation of the Great Seal
By: Jim Rheingans
Pre-Order
Our Price: $33.95
Members Price: $30.56

This book investigates Mikyo Dorje's biographies and carries out case studies of some of his mahamudra (Great Seal) teachings, Buddhist instructions for the acquisition of meditative insight. After surveying a variety of textual sources for the study of the Karmapa's life and works, this book shows how he developed into one of the most productive scholars of his tradition, who, located within the shifting religious and political hegemonies of his time, managed to acquire a status of singular importance to his school. Rheingans then goes on to analyse Mikyo Dorje's mahamudra teachings by examining selected texts that contain such instructions in historical and doctrinal context. This study contends that the Kagyupa mahamudra constitutes less a static system than an independent key instruction to be adapted by the guru to different students' requirements and are thus chiefly characterised by didactic pragmatism.

Traleg Kyabgon gives clear commentary on how our mental conduct has implications on how we act in the world
Sometimes a negative emotion is present, a strong intention to do harm is present, and we might even have prepared to undertake the action, but if we do not carry out that act, it will not be a fully karmic act, and will not produce complete negative karmic fruition. In other words, we create negative karma through coordinating body, speech and mind. We need 1) the object of an action to be present, 2) a negative state of mind, 3) the motivation, preparedness or strong intention to do harm, and 4) we have to perform the harmful action. When all four things come together, we create negative karma through body, speech, and mind. Letter to a Friend explores coordinating body, speech, and mind in such a way that produces positive karma and good outcomes. The Buddhist approach to ethical values is not so much moralistic. Our moral and ethical values are part of a moral psychology, what is happening in the mind and what type of attitudes and actions does this activity produce. Our personal psychology is seen as part of our aspirations and orientation. It is not just about conduct.

Padmasambhava is a Sanskrit word that literally translates as 'One Born from a Lotus'. An eighth-century Indian Buddhist master, Padmasambhava is widely venerated as a 'second Buddha' across Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and the Himalayan states of India. It is because of him that Tibet gave up her imperialistic attitude and embraced the teachings of the Buddha. The heritage of the Vajrayana Buddhists all over the world can be traced to this one man from India. Due to his immense compassion and kindness towards sentient beings of this age, he is affectionately referred to as Guru Rinpoche-the 'Precious Teacher'. This simple yet deeply illuminating book, written by a master himself and adorned with beautiful and rare illustrations, is a great example of India's timeless Buddhist heritage.

El presente libro desarrolla ciertos aspectos historico-religiosos de la figura de este trascendental maestro espiritual e incide en algunos elementos poco explicados de las ensenanzas budistas. De este modo, ademas de exponer el sustrato filosofico que subyace a cada práctica meditativa -analizando, por ejemplo, las diversas nociones de la vacuidad, la funcion y el significado de las deidades meditativas tantricas o la contemplación de la verdadera naturaleza de la mente-, este trabajo presenta de manera fidedigna una detallada exposicion del dzogchen -o Gran Perfeccion-, unas instrucciones que segun algunos maestros constituyen el punto culminante de la contemplacion budista y que sólo muy recientemente han comenzado a hacerse publicas en Occidente. En la misma tonica, estas páginas tambien recogen el legendario origen de las ensenanzas tantricas, el modo en que se transmitieron las primeras instrucciones del dzogchen o una explicacion sobre los «tesoros espirituales» (termas), un conjunto de textos doctrinales y objetos sagrados ocultados por ciertos maestros en los albores del budismo y que han ido descubriendose a lo largo de los siglos hasta llegar a nuestros días.

In this original play, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, made full use of the genre of theater to bring Milarepa's suffering and spiritual transformation to life. His Holiness the Karmapa transmitted the entire life of Milarepa in a single, magnificent evening, staged on the Tibetan New Year's Day (Losar) in 2010 in the most sacred site for Buddhists, Bodhgaya, India. Twenty thousand people turned out to view this world-class theatrical event, created by His Holiness and performed by actors from the Tibetan Institute for the Performing Arts (TIPA).

Combining elements of Tibetan opera with modern theater, this dramatic work allowed the audience to connect with the life of Tibet's most revered yogi in new and vivid ways.

The script for the six-act play, composed by the 17th Karmapa himself, is complemented in this book by photographs of the original performance as well as traditional scroll painting and modern artistic depictions of events from Milarepa's remarkable life.

The Passion Book is the most famous work of erotica in the vast literature of Tibetan Buddhism, written by the legendary scholar and poet Gendun Chopel (1903-1951). Soon after arriving in India in 1934, he discovered the Kama Sutra. Realizing that this genre of the erotic was unknown in Tibet, he set out to correct the situation. His sources were two: classical Sanskrit works and his own experiences with his lovers. Completed in 1939, his "treatise on passion" circulated in manuscript form in Tibet, scandalizing and arousing its readers.
