on a personal and on a global level. If we know how to handle our anger
skillfully, it is an effective tool for helping us recognize that a
situation needs to change and for providing the energy to create that
change. Yet more often anger is destructiveand in its grip we hurt
ourselves and those around us.

Reflections of a Mongolian Shaman Shaman Byampadorji Dondog
Buddhism in Mongolian History, Culture, and Society
By: Vesna Wallace
Our Price: $35.00
Members Price: $31.50

Buddhism in Mongolian History, Culture, and Society explores
the unique elements of Mongolian Buddhism while challenging its
stereotyped image as a mere replica of Tibetan Buddhism. Vesna A.
Wallace brings together an interdisciplinary group of leading scholars
to explore the interaction between the Mongolian indigenous culture and
Buddhism, the features that Buddhism acquired through its adaptation to
the Mongolian cultural sphere, and the ways Mongols have constructed
their Buddhist identity. The contributors explore the ways that Buddhism
retained unique Mongolian features through Qing and Mongol support, and
bring to light the ways in which Mongolian Buddhists saw Buddhism as
inseparable from "Mongolness."

Buddhist Epistemology as Apologetics
Buddhist Epistemology as Apologetics: Studies on the History, Self-understanding and Dogmatic Foundations of Late Indian Buddhist Philosophy
By: Vincent Eltschinger
Our Price: $99.00
Members Price: $89.10

This book deals first with the historical and doctrinal foundations of Dharmakirti's religious philosophy. It points to a socio-historical context of Brahmanical hostility toward non- and anti-Vedic denominations (chapter 1), new patterns of Buddhist self-diction (chapter 2), reinvented models of theoretical and apologetical rationality (chapter 3), and the dogmatic infrastructure underlying Buddhist epistemology (chapter 4). It argues that Buddhist Tantrism and Buddhist logic, two roughly contemporary phenomena that can be regarded as the main literary outcomes of the early medieval period, share interesting features in terms of polemical targets and self-understanding.

Four Noble Truths of Wealth: A Buddhist View of Economic Life <br>  By: Layth Matthews
Four Noble Truths of Wealth: A Buddhist View of Economic Life
By: Layth Matthews
Our Price: $17.95
Members Price: $16.15

The Buddhist advice for economic life is the same as for every other aspect of life: start with the view. The idea is that understanding the foundations of a situation, in this case the human condition, helps us to make better choices going forward. All human beings wish to be happy and free from suffering. The Buddhist approach is to contemplate the nature of happiness and suffering themselves as the means to navigate toward a more joyful existence and the elimination of suffering. Here suffering is distinguished from pain as the misery that comes from being habitually unable to appreciate things as they are.

Four-Session Guru Yoga by Mikyo Dorje (Chinese Edition)

The Four-Session Guru Yoga that we practice, composed by  the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje, was based on an earlier guru yoga found in the writings of Lama Shangtsalpa's (Lord Gampopa's disciple) secret teachings that were sealed by command seal. Mikyo Dorje used this as the basis for his composition, altered slightly by adding a little bit to it. There is a commentary on this practice written by the Ninth Gyalwang Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje that is impracticably long. Chakme Rinpoche wrote his commentary because until that time there was no easily accessible commentary for doing Four-Session Guru Yoga.

In 1941, philosopher and poet Gendun Chopel (1903-51) sent a large manuscript by ship, train, and yak across mountains and deserts to his homeland in the northeastern corner of Tibet. He would follow it five years later, returning to his native land after twelve years in India and Sri Lanka. But he did not receive the welcome he imagined: he was arrested by the government of the regent of the young Dalai Lama on trumped-up charges of treason. He emerged from prison three years later a broken man and died soon after. Gendun Chopel was a prolific writer during his short life.

Is it possible to live well when the very ground we stand on is shaky? Yes, says everyone's favorite Buddhist nun, it's even possible to live beautifully, compassionately, and happily on shaky ground and the secret is: the ground is always shaky. Pema shows how using a traditional Buddhist practice called the Three Vows or Three Commitments is a way to relax into profound sanity in the midst of whatever non-sanity is happening around us. Just making these simple aspirations can change the way we look at the world and can provide us with a lifetime of material for spiritual practice.
Love and Liberation
Love and Liberation: Autobiographical Writings of the Tibetan Buddhist Visionary Sera Khandro
By: Sarah H. Jacoby
Our Price: $50.00

Love and Liberation reads the autobiographical and biographical writings of one of the few Tibetan Buddhist women to record the story of her life. Sera Khandro Knzang Dekyong Chnyi Wangmo (also called Dew Dorj, 1892--1940) was extraordinary not only for achieving religious mastery as a Tibetan Buddhist visionary and guru to many lamas, monastics, and laity in the Golok region of eastern Tibet, but also for her candor. This book listens to Sera Khandro's conversations with land deities, dakinis, bodhisattvas, lamas, and fellow religious community members whose voices interweave with her own to narrate what is a story of both love between Sera Khandro and her guru, Drim zer, and spiritual liberation.

Madhyamaka and Yogacara are the two principal schools of Mahayana Buddhist philosophy. While Madhyamaka asserts the ultimate emptiness and conventional reality of all phenomena, Yogacara is usually considered to be idealistic. This collection of essays addresses the degree to which these philosophical approaches are consistent or complementary. Indian and Tibetan doxographies often take these two schools to be philosophical rivals. They are grounded in distinct bodies of sutra literature and adopt what appear to be very different positions regarding the analysis of emptiness and the status of mind.

of philosophical views and spiritual practices pointing to their
incapability of directly causing liberation. It is a central theme of
his key works The Natural Freedom of Reality (Tibetan title: Chos nyid

on the Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena (Tibetan
title: Chos dbyings rin po chei mdzod zhes bya bai grel pa) that are

Chinese repression leaves Tibetans powerless to stop the reckless destruction of their sacred land, but they are not the only victims of this campaign: the nations downstream from Tibet rely heavily on rivers sourced in Tibet for water supply, and for rich silt used in agriculture. This ecocide has been happening with little scrutiny until now. Meltdown in Tibet turns the spotlight on the darkest side of China's emergence as a global super power.

David R. Loy addresses head-on the most pressing issues of Buddhist philosophy in our time. What is the meaning of enlightenment - is it an escape from the world, or is it a form of psychological healing? How can one reconcile modern scientific theory with ancient religious teachings? What is our role in the universe?
Loy shows us that neither Buddhism nor secular society by itself is sufficient to answer these questions. Instead, he investigates the unexpected intersections of the two.

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
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.

In Tibet, vajra songs became popular when Milarepa gave teachings in that style to his disciples. His example influenced all Tibetan Buddhist schools, particularly the Kagyu lineages. People commonly memorized such songs and sang them with beautiful melodies. But vajra songs are much more than pleasant tunes or ordinary poetry. A vajra song reflects the enlightened mind of its author by encapsulating precisely profound meaning in just a few words. Thus, it can be difficult for the unenlightened to penetrate their meaning.

The precepts of Dzogchen were said to have originated with the Primordial Buddha, Kuntu Zangpo, passing down at first through the Direct Mind-to-Mind Transmission and then later through the Oral Transmission of the Twenty-Four Masters

BYAMPADORJ DONDOG, one of the greatest Mongolian shamans alive today, was born in 1947 in Darvi Sum of Hovd Amaig, southwest Mongolia, in a maternal lineage descended from the tribe of the wife of Chinggis Haan (Genghis Khan). This was the harsh era of the Stalinist purges, when Mongolia was a satellite of the Soviets, and thus he grew up during a period when both Buddhism and shamanism were oppressed to the point of near extinction. In his youth he secretly trained in the ancient shamanic arts under several underground masters, and when Communism fell in 1990 he emerged as a principal force in the efforts of cultural and spiritual restoration. He began to openly accept students, and since then has trained several hundred young Mongols, many of whom have become qualified masters in their own right.
