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

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.

There are lots of books that address how we should take care of ourselves, find calm, and enjoy happiness in a hectic work world. But few of those books apply the lessons of Buddhist thinking as resolution and guidance tools. These questions, though found in the modern day, are actually the core of all Buddha's teachings: impermanence, suffering, and the quest for happiness (freedom from suffering). This makes Buddha the kind of consultant or coach we need today in the workplace.

It can be hard for those of us living in the 21st century to see how 14th-century Buddhist teachings still apply. When you're trying to figure out which cell phone plan to buy or brooding about something someone wrote about you on Facebook, lines like "While the enemy of your own anger is unsubdued, though you conquer external foes, they will only increase" can seem a little obscure.

The First Chapter of Karmapa Chodrak Gyatso's Ocean of Literature on Logic & the Corresponding Chapter from Dharmakirti's Commentary on Validity


One major issue for all thinkers and spiritual practitioners is how to know whether the teachings they are following are true and valid and whether their understanding of them is correct. The study of validity, which developed out of the works of Dignaga and Dharmakirti, gives them the necessary tools to determine this for themselves.

This book presents the first chapter of the Seventh Karmapa Chödrak Gyatso’s Ocean of Literature on Logic — which he composed entirely from memory while sitting in meditation without referring to any texts — along with the work it explains, the first chapter of Dharmakirti’s Commentary on Validity. Together, these works explain what it means for our knowledge to be valid and why the Buddha is an authority we can trust. Along the way, it also explains many other issues of relevance to any practitioner, among them whether there is a creator god, why we should meditate on compassion, and the natures of the four noble truths.

In particular, this chapter is renowned for its seminal explanation of the proof of rebirth. This makes it an indispensable text for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding and challenge their own beliefs to see whether they are valid or not.

In India and Tibet, the works on validity formed one of the five great topics of Buddhism. This book presents one of the most important aspects of that topic in a clear and accessible translation. It will form an essential part of the studies for any scholar or practitioner of Mahayana and Tibetan Buddhism.

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.
Logic in Buddhist Scholasticism

Focusing on logic, one of the main aims of this book is to contribute to a more comprehensive and less one-sided picture of Buddhism, which is among the general public in the "West" often reduced to Zen and Tibetan Buddhism. Actually, in Buddhist history several thousands of pages were written on how to avoid logical contradictions and on how to generate logically valid inferences. The contributors include well known Buddhologists and logicians from Austria, Canada, China, Germany, Japan, Taiwan and the United States.

Milarepa: Tibet's Supreme Yogi

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.
Moonbeams of Mahamudra
Moonbeams of Mahamudra: The Classic Meditation Manual
By: Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche
Pre-Order
Our Price: $29.95
Members Price: $26.96

Traleg Kyabgon's mastery of the English language and his insight into Western culture make for a very approachable translation of this magnum opus of the Kagyu tradition. The Mahamudra path of direct perception is the pre-eminent method of the Dakpo Kagyu tradition. This definitive manual systematically explains its approach to meditation, complete with definitions, pointing-out instructions, and advice for the many pitfalls and errors that beset practitioners. Central to these errors is our failure to acknowledge the difference between understanding and experience, and our tendency to fixate on meditative experiences and mistake them for realization. This translation conveys the freshness and immediacy of these instructions. Belonging to the generation of teachers to first bring Tibetan Buddhism across cultures, Traleg Kyabgon (1955-2012) presents these Mahamudra instructions in a direct, relaxed, and intimate style.

Relaxed Mind: A Seven-Step Method for Deepening Meditation Practice (MP3 CD)
By: Dza Kilung Rinpoche
Our Price: $9.99
Members Price: $8.99

In the late 1990s, shortly after arriving in the United States, it became clear to Dza Kilung Rinpoche that his Western students were unable to progress in meditation, as well as his students had back in Asia—and he realized that was because the pace of Western life made it difficult for them to relax. The Relaxed Mind contains instructions for the seven-phase meditation practice Dza Kilung Rinpoche developed for Westerners. It's very traditional but adapted to help those of us who live in a culture of distraction. The method is a way for tense meditators to relax and deepen their practice—but it's also an excellent meditation manual for any beginner.

The Tibetan Buddhist tradition has known over 13 centuries of continuous development. During that time, it has spread among the neighboring peoples - the Mongol, Himalayan, and Siberian peoples, Manchus, and Chinese. At its height is has been practiced in regions as far west as the Volga river and to the east in Beijing. Its capacity for creative adaptation is demonstrated by its recent growth in Europe and America. At the same time, it is at the center of political contestation in ethnically Tibetan regions of China, while its best known exponent, the Dalai Lama, has become one of the most admired religious leaders in the world today. But what does this religion teach?
