Antiquities of Zhang Zhung, Vol.2: Archaic Ceremonial Monuments
A Comprehensive Inventory of Pre-Buddhist Archaeological Monuments in the Tibetan Upland
By: John Vincent Bellezza
Our Price: $99.95
Members Price: $90.00

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.

Atman-Brahman in Ancient Buddhism
Atman-Brahman in Ancient Buddhism
By: Kamaleswar Bhattacharya
Our Price: $19.95

The thesis of this book is epoch-making. While no one doubts that the Buddha denied the atman, the self, the question is: Which atman? Buddhism, as understood in the modern era, has taken this to be the universal atman taught in the Hindu Upanisads, equivalent to brahman. What we find in the Buddha’s words as recorded in the Buddhist scriptures, however, is only a denial of any permanent self in the ever-changing aggregates that form a person. In decades of teaching, the Buddha had many opportunities to clearly deny the impersonal universal atman if that was his intention. He did not do so.

Heart of Meditation
Heart of Meditation: Discovering Innermost Awareness
By: Dalai Lama
Our Price: $22.95
Members Price: $20.66

The heart of meditation - the thing that brings it alive - is compassion. Without that essential foundation, other practices are pointless. Fortunately, the mind can be trained in compassion, and the mind thus trained with the qualities of love, empathy, kindness, and respect for others is ready for the practice of the Great Completeness (Dzogchen), which is considered the pinnacle of spiritual practice in the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. His Holiness the Dalai Lama here teaches the Great Completeness simply but thoroughly, using as his reference a visionary poem by the nineteenth-century master Patrul Rinpoche to show that insight can never be separated from compassion. Through practice of the Great Completeness, we can access our innermost awareness and live our lives in a way that acknowledges it and manifests it. The wisdom and compassion that arise from such insight are critical, His Holiness teaches, not only to individual progress in meditation but to our collective progress toward peace in the world.

A Commentary on His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche's Mountain Retreat Instructions
By: Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
Our Price: $22.00
Members Price: $19.80

Throughout Buddhist history - including when Buddhism came to Tibet from the Holy Land of India - combining intellectual study with meditation was the essential practice. In particular, Richo was very openly used in all the Practice Lineages of Tibetan Buddhism, especially the Nyingma and Kagyu schools. The teachings always mention that individuals should spend time in hermitages and go to the mountains until they stabilize their realization because there are fewer distractions.

That is why the Buddha and Guru Padmasambhava always recommended practicing in mountain retreat. Many teachers gave Mountain Retreat teachings, and among them, these instructions were taught by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche.

Includes a complete translation of “Mountain Retreat Instructions” by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche.

"By engaging the Anuyoga teachings a practitioner discovers the "three vajra states of the buddha:" (1) vajra body, (2) vajra speech, and (3) vajra mind. If we discuss the three vajra states as something external, when the form aggregate of earth is purified-along with water-that is known as the "vajra body." When fire and wind are purified, that is known as "vajra speech." And when the sky and mind are purified, that is known as "vajra wisdom mind." Having reached enlightenment through the techniques of Anuyogatantra, a practitioner achieves the very same realization and qualities of Buddha Shakyamuni, as explained in the general Mahayana teachings." Includes over 14 teachings on the Tibetan Buddhist practice and philosophy of Anuyoga taught by the Buddha, Guru Padmasambhava, and the Venerable Khenpo Rinpoches.

Likewise, Trungpa Rinpoche had to conquer religious and cultural opposition to Buddhism—the secret teachings, in particular—to establish his sangha in North America in the twentieth century.

Ten Early Tantras of the Great Perfection: A Basket of Diamonds
Ten Early Tantras of the Great Perfection: A Basket of Diamonds
By: Christopher Wilkinson (Translator)
Our Price: $29.99

The Great Perfection, also known as the Atiyoga or Dzogchen (rDzogs chen), is both a name for the realization of instantaneous enlightenment and a name for the literature that talks about this. Generally speaking, the Great Perfection is beyond both words and deeds, yet even though nothing may be said about it, there does exist a large body of literature that discusses it. This literature exists today within the canons of teachings that are preserved from the earliest period of Buddhism's beginnings in Tibet, around the Eighth Century of the Common Era. These collections are known as The Hundred Thousand Tantras of the Ancients (Nyingma Gyubum). The most famous of the early translators of Great Perfection literature were Vairochana, a Tibetan monk who went to India in search of the teachings on instantaneous enlightenment, and Vimalamitra, an Indian master who came to Tibet. The collected translations of Vairochana are retained in a collection called The Hundred Thousand Tantras of Vairochana (Vairo Gyubum).
From out of the many hundreds of titles to be found in these great collections, Christopher Wilkinson has selected ten works that he believes will be of great interest.

Thangka Paintings of the Tibetan Oral Epic King Gesar

King Gesar is an oral epic widely sung and performed today by the broad masses of Tibetans. It has been preserved, spread, and expanded, with an ever-growing length and ever-enriched contents because of the balladeers, or ""Zongken"" in Tibetan. A Zongthang is a Thangka of stories about the epic King Gesar. The folk ballad singers painted stories of King Gesar and pictures of characters to make their performances more striking and to attract a wider audience. During their performance, they would hang the pictures and explain the plots shown on the Thangka. In the Tibetan inhabited areas of China, King Gesar is worshipped as the God of War, as well as the God of Wealth, by all nomadic people. The paintings and statues of King Gesar ""are very popular in the Amdo and Kham Areas, and in the Dege Area, in particular, almost each of the families worships him as God"". All of the books about the life and deeds of King Gesar, whether hand-copied or woodcut, are equally worshipped and treasured. In those areas, people believe that keeping at least one copy of King Gesar at home can bring in fortune and dispel disasters.

We all know the cause of ill-health: germs and viruses; and, of course, genetic propensity. To these we should add: the ripening of recent or ancient karma; predatory demons and witches; adverse astrological configurations; the retaliation of earth-gods angered by humans' callous treatment of the environment; spilling milk on the stove. The afflictions resulting from these various pathogens manifest in physical, mental and social disorders of commensurate diversity and complexity. The treatment is also well known: allopathic care, whether Western, Tibetan or Ayurvedic; or the accumulation of merit to dissipate the burden of karma; or the shamanic hunt for lost souls; or violent exorcism; or any number of remedial techniques that have their home in the expanse of the Himalayan and Tibetan region.

Their animal characters powerfully and sometimes humorously demonstrate the virtues and foibles to which we humans are prone, and they point the way to more enlightened ways of living. Mark McGinnis retells the Jatakas in poetic and accessible language, rendering the Buddhist teachings they contain abundantly clear. Each tale is brought to life by Mark’s full-color illustration, making the book a visually stunning entrée to this edifying and highly entertaining literary tradition.
