Antiquities of Zhang Zhung, Vol.2
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.

Palden Gyatso was born in a Tibetan village in 1933 and became an ordained Buddhist monk at 18 just as Tibet was in the midst of political upheaval.

In 1967, the Chinese destroyed monasteries across Tibet and forced thousands of monks into labor camps and prisons. Gyatso spent the next 25 years of his life enduring interrogation and torture simply for the strength of his beliefs.

This book isn’t about dying. It’s about life and what life has to teach us. It’s about caring and what giving care really means.

This lucid overview of the Buddhist path takes the perspective of the three "vehicles" of Tibetan Buddhism: the Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana. While these vehicles are usually presented as a historical development, they are here equated with the attitudes that individuals bring to their Buddhist practice. Basic to them all, however, is the need to understand our own immediate condition. The primary tool for achieving this is meditation, and The Essence of Buddhism serves as a handbook for the various meditative approaches of Buddhist practice.

The realm of emotion is one of those areas where Buddhism and Western psychology are often thought to be at odds: Are emotions to be valued, examined, worked with as signs leading us to deeper self-knowledge? Or are they something to be ignored and avoided as soon as we recognize them?

Healing Power of Mind: Simple Meditation Exercises for Health, Well-Being, and Enlightenment (MP3 CD)
By: Tulku Thondup
Our Price: $9.99
Members Price: $8.99

The true nature of our minds is enlightened and peaceful, as the depth of the ocean is calm and clear. But when we mentally grasp and emotionally cling to our wants and worries with all our energy, we lose our own enlightened freedom and healing power, only to gain stress and exhaustion, suffering and overexcitement, like the turbulent waves rolling on the surface of the ocean. Our minds possess the power to heal pain and stress, and to blossom into peace and joy, by loosening the clinging attitudes that Buddhists call "grasping at self." If we apply the mind's healing power, we can heal not only our mental and emotional afflictions, but physical problems also.

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.

Quizá la principal diferencia del budismo y las demás religiones del mundo radique en su original comprensión del núcleo de nuestra identidad. La existencia de un alma o un "yo", que es un aspecto esencial al hinduismo, el cristianismo o el islam, es negada en el budismo. Es más, se considera la creencia en un "yo" la principal fuente de nuestros problemas en la vida.

Un conocimiento profundo de esta enseñanza no porta a ninguna visión nihilista o cínica del mundo que nos rodea. Por el contrario, una auténtica comprensión de nuestra mente e identidad nos conduce a la verdadera felicidad individual y a una mayor compasión por los demás.

Secret Tantras of The Fish Wheel and The Nine Spaces: Two Ancient Scriptures of the Great Perfection
By: Christopher Wilkinson
Our Price: $29.99

The Great Perfection, also known as the Atiyoga or Dzogchen (rDzogs chen), is a tradition of esoteric Buddhism that was first transmitted from India to Tibet in the Eighth Century of the Common Era. The Tantras translated in this volume were among the earliest translations into Tibetan, and are preserved in the manuscript collections known as the Hundred Thousand Tantras of the Ancients (rNying ma rgyud ‘bum) and the Hundred Thousand Tantras of Vairochana (Vairo’i rgyud ‘bum). The Tantra of the Nine Spaces clearly states that it was translated by Vairochana, a Tibetan monk who had gone to India in the Eighth Century in search of the teachings on instantaneous enlightenment, and Sri Singha, indicating that the translation was done while Vairochana was still in India with his guru. The Fish Wheel Tantra does not indicate who its translators were, but its inclusion in the Hundred Thousand Tantras of Vairochana is evidence that the Tibetan tradition held it to be the work of Vairochana.

Loch Kelly calls this the expression of open-hearted awareness, our natural foundation of mind that arises effortlessly whenever we step out of the usual mode of consciousness known as ego-identification. Created as a stand-alone program or a complement to his book of the same name, Shift into Freedom is a progressive training guide that offers “small glimpses, many times” to help us shift out of our chattering mind and into who we really are.
