How do you reconcile a commitment to non-violence when faced with violence? Why do the poor often seem happier than the rich? Must a society lose its traditions in order to move into the future? These are some of the questions posed to His Holiness the Dalai Lama by filmmaker and explorer Rick Ray. Ray examines some of the fundamental questions of our time by weaving together observations from his own journeys throughout India and the Middle East, and the wisdom of an extraordinary spiritual leader. This is his story, as told and filmed by Rick Ray during a private visit to his monastery in Dharamsala, India over the course of several months. Also included is rare historical footage as well as footage supplied by individuals who at great personal risk, filmed with hidden cameras within Tibet. Part biography, part philosophy, part adventure and part politics, "10 Questions for The Dalai Lama" conveys more than history and more than answers - it opens a window into the heart of an inspiring man.

Amongst White Clouds is an intimate insider' look at students and masters living in scattered retreats dotting China’s Zhongnan Mountain range. These peaks have reputedly been home to recluses since the time of the Yellow Emperor, some five thousand years ago. It was widely thought that the tradition was all but wiped out, but this film emphatically and beautifully shows us otherwise.

Inspired in part by the noted book by Bill Porter (Red Pine), Road To Heaven: Encounters With Chinese Hermits, and filmed on location in China by American director Edward A. Burger, the film takes an unforgettable journey into the hidden tradition of China's Buddhist hermit monks.

One of only a few foreigners to have lived and studied with these elusive practitioners, Burger is able, with humor and compassion, to present their tradition, their wisdom, and the hardship and joy of their everyday lives among the clouds.
Amulet of Mahamudra, DVD

The Amulet of Mahamudra is an engaging teaching by Thrangu Rinpoche based on two mahamudra texts on that never have been presented in the West. The Amulet of Mahamudra offers both beginning and advanced students accessible and clear approaches to determining the ulitmate nature of mind. The first text, which is profound and concise, was written by Thangtong Gyalpo, an accomplished 13th century siddha known for his extensive activity, having built over 100 iron bridges in Tibet. Several centuries later, Taranatha, the great teacher of the Jonang lineage, wrote a detailed commentary on Thangtong Tulku’s text which is also called The Amulet of Mahamudra. Both texts are based on the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. Thrangu Rinpoche’s teaching is based on both texts which provide a different approach to Mahamudra than the traditional Karma Kagyu mahamudra teachings. This wonderful teaching was translated by David Karma Choepel.

In this hour-long documentary, this young man of extraordinary warmth, humanity, humor, and charisma speaks to packed auditoriums and delights in encountering this new world. As a sequel to Mark Elliott's earlier The Lions Roar (1987), a documentary about the previous Karmapa's first trip to the West, Bodhisattva continues to chronicle the life of this significant spiritual figure and his role in the transmission of Buddhism to the West.

Prev-HHK

Bodhisattva captures not only the Karmapa's disarming honesty and genuine faith in his role as a bodhisattva, or one born to benefit others, but also reveals much about the fascinating question of transmission of religion, or belief system, from one culture to the next. The Karmapa gives profound teachings on the importance of thinking in new ways in order to address the social and environmental problems facing humanity, emphasizing how we are all deeply interconnected. Our recognition of this interconnection through the Karmapa's teachings in this film gives hope for regeneration.

Bodhisattva interweaves footage shot on tour, with superb background footage of the Karmapa's childhood in Tibet, sequences in Dharamsala, India, and film of the previous Sixteenth Karmapa.

Chinese monk, poet, and scholar Xuan Zang traveled the Silk Road to
India and back approximately 1,400 years ago in search of the teachings
of Buddha. When he returned to China, he brought with him Buddhist
manuscripts and is thus credited with having brought the religion to his
homeland. In this documentary, the route taken by Xuan Zang is followed

In the Buddha Maitreya's Differentiating the Middle from the Extremes, the "middle" is the Middle-way and the two extremes are nihilism and eternalism. The present Buddha, of course, is the Shakyamuni Buddha, and Maitreya will be the next, future Buddha. Maitreya is known for giving the world the Five Treatises of Maitreya. These teachings are particularly precious because they represent the third turning of the wheel of dharma (with the Four Noble Truths teachings being the first turning and Nagarjuna’s vast teachings on emptiness being the second turning). This text is particularly close to Thrangu Rinpoche because it expounds the Shentong view and Thrangu Rinpoche has long been a well-recognized master of this point of view. In these recordings Rinpoche comments upon this text in great detail and provides ample opportunity for questions and answers. Translated by David Karma Choephel.

The United States, primarily a Judeo-Christian nation until recently, now encompasses theological groups relatively unknown in the early days of the republic. Buddhism -- the world's fourth largest religion after Christianity, Islam and Hinduism -- has been steadily gaining adherents in America.

THE BUDDHA, a two-hour documentary from Emmy Award winner David Grubin, relates the life of the Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment as he sat beneath a fig tree two-and-a-half millennia ago. This film tells the Buddha's story through painting and sculptures by some of the world's greatest artists and tracks his biography across the sweeping landscapes of northern India.

The testimony of contemporary Buddhists, from Pulitzer Prize-winning poet W.S. Merwin to the Dalai Lama, provide insight into the ancient narrative of the man who never claimed to be God or God's emissary, but merely a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had achieved a serenity that others, too, could find.

This documentary tells the story of his life, a journey especially relevant in our own times.

This public talk was the beginning of a weekend teaching on The Nine Stages of Meditation which is available in a separate DVD set. In this public talk, Lama Kathy Wesley speaks generally about the theory and practice of Buddhist meditation. She begins by noting that while most individuals have experienced calmness somewhere in their lives, we all long to experience a more consistent peace of mind and that this is often the motivation for seeking information on meditation. Based on the Buddhas first teachings, Lama Kathy explains that happiness and suffering are in the mind and experienced by the mind. Therefore if we want to change our experience of the world, we need to work with our minds. She goes on to describe the practice of meditation, dispelling misconceptions about meditation and showing how meditation works with our minds to bring the calmness, goodness, compassion and wisdom that is the fundamental, awakened nature of our mind. Lama Kathy concludes this talk with an extensive period of group discussion, encouraging participants to comment on the teaching, share stories about their own experience of meditation, and pose questions.  As always, Lama Kathys clear and humorous style of presentation makes the teachings very accessible.

In todays interconnected and globalized world, the answer effects each and every one of us. In Pakistan and Afghanistan, China's humanitarian activities and investment in infrastructure have won it the hearts and minds of the people. Yet in Tibet and Xinjiang, China is reviled as an imperialistic abuser of human rights. Will China use its strength to dominate its neighbors and become a 21st century empire, or will China's youth lead the country towards democracy? Whether its a peaceful rise or potential threat, China's 21st century emergence as a great world power will change the lives of everyone.

Chogyam Trungpa's Symphony of Great Bliss: An Experiential Song of Luminous Mahamudra Composed by Trungpa Rinpoche at Age 19, DVD
By: Thrangu Rinpoche
Our Price: $60.00
Members Price: $54.00

The Venerable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche was born in the province of Kham in eastern Tibet in 1939. When he was just thirteen months old, he was recognized as a major tulku, or incarnate teacher. At the age of eight, Trungpa Rinpoche received ordination as a novice monk. Following this, he engaged in intensive study and practice of the traditional monastic disciplines, including traditional Tibetan poetry and monastic dance. His primary teachers were Jamgon Kongtul of Sechen and Khenpo Gangshar—leading teachers in the Nyingma and Kagyu lineages. In 1958, at the age of eighteen, Trungpa Rinpoche completed his studies, receiving the degrees of kyorpön (doctor of divinity) and khenpo (master of studies). He also received full monastic ordination. The late 1950s were a time of great upheaval in Tibet. As it became clear that the Chinese communists intended to take over the country by force, many people, both monastic and lay, fled the country. Trungpa Rinpoche spent many harrowing months trekking over the Himalayas (described in his book, Born in Tibet). After narrowly escaping capture by the Chinese, he at last reached India in 1959.

Trungpa Rinpoche composed the doha titled A Symphony of Great Bliss at the age of nineteen while he was fleeing from Tibet, most likely in the area of Kongpo. This delightful and profound doha presents the view, path and fruition of Mahamudra in language that is both colorful and instructive. Thrangu Rinpoche's commentary on this text provides insight into the circumstances surrounding this doha and teaches the meaning of the doha with clarity and precision.

Trungpa Rinpoche was a close dharma brother of Thrangu Rinpoche, and this long close friendship was the inspiration for Thrangu Rinpoche's search for and teaching of this doha, lost in the archives since the 1960's.

"Creating Buddhas: The Making and Meaning of Fabric Thangkas" is the story of a western woman who became a fabric thangka maker. Now, with great love and devotion, she is bringing the gift of fabric thangka to our culture.

 Fabric thangka is a silk embroidered and appliquéd art form in Tibetan Buddhism and is also known as Applique Thangka, Brocade Thangka, and Silk Thangka. Fabric thangka is so rare that in some places it is only seen once a year, and then for only for a few hours.

 Trained in Dharamsala, India for nine years, Leslie Rinchen-Wongmo is one of the few female makers in world and one of the only fabric thangka makers in the west. This film also explores Leslie’s life-changing journey of discovering fabric thangka, her apprenticeship in Dharmasala, India, the step-by-step by process of producing a fabric thangka, and the history and spiritual importance in Tibetan Buddhism. Through this film, we see her produce a thangka of the female Buddha Tara. In a sense, Leslie is like Tara. She became a master of a male tradition and we see fabric thangka through feminine eyes.

In Tibet today, roughly 15% of the people live in urban centers, where the ongoing struggle for Tibet's future is taking place. But the other 85% of Tibetans live in rural areas, subsistence farmers and nomadic herding families engaged in the daily struggle to eat and survive. DAUGHTERS OF WISDOM is a story of these people, an experiential and transporting view of contemporary Tibet seen through the eyes of some of its most extraordinary women, the nuns of Kala Rongo Monastery of Nangchen, Kham. Founded in 1990, the Kala Rongo Monastery is granting women choices they've never had before, and changing outmoded attitudes that no longer serve the greater good of the community. Through the pragmatic vision of their benefactor, Lama Norlha Rinpoche, nearly 300 nuns are now receiving religious and educational training previously unavailable to them. They are being given a real opportunity to change the course of their lives, and to preserve the rich spiritual heritage of their people, even as they slowly reshape it.
Dealing With Anger and Emotions

This DVD is the latest release in a series of ongoing reissues that bring the work of the Dalai Lama to a wider audience. These films will form part of a unique and groundbreaking series of films that will be welcomed the world over not only by those interested in Buddhism but fellow travellers on the road to enlightenment.

How do we deal with negative emotions? This is an important topic one that brings up the question of what's positive and what's negative. Is there anything that's absolutely negative or absolutely positive? I don't really know. Everything is interdependent and everything has different aspects. One observer looks at something from this angle and sees one picture, but even the same observer, when they go to the other side, sees things from a different angle.

Why, then, does each person have a different view of the world? Well, it's because each of us looks at the world from a different angle. Even the same object looks different even to the same person. Therefore, what is the distinction and definition of good and bad? I don't know. Even an ant doesn't analyze that. But, somehow, an ant knows that something that helps its life is good and so considers it good; and something that's a danger to life it feels that is bad and so it runs around it.

So, perhaps we can say that [the issue of good or bad] is based on survival. We want comfort and happiness. And so something that's helpful for survival, we consider that good: that's positive. Something that attacks us and which we feel is a danger to our survival we feel that that's bad: that's negative.

In this series of talks on Buddha Nature given in May of 2010 at Hartford KTC in Hartford, Connecticut, Lama Yeshe Gyamtso clearly lays out both the process by which we develop obscurations and the path of practice that allows us to overcome them. He explains that while it is difficult to experience the emptiness of our relative experience, we can directly experience our own mind. This quest to search for minds nature is precisely the goal of our meditation. It is not enough, however, to simply find it and rest in it. We cant just limit our practice to glimpses of our minds nature. We still need other practices. We must examine our mind closely through observation and analysis to thoroughly experience the nature of mind. Lama Yeshe made it clear that we should not view Buddha Nature as something distant or unattainable. It is not a hidden treasure, and it is not concealed from us. Once we gain confidence in our Buddha Nature we must then be patient and diligent. Through our practice and the guidance of our teacher we will experience gradual intensification of our realization and gain confidence that abiding in that realization will lead to liberation. Included in these talks are several excellent group meditation practices led by Lama Yeshe which were designed to facilitate investigation of our Buddha Nature. Five talks on five DVDs.

Distinction Between Consciousness and Wisdom (DVD)
Distinction Between Consciousness and Wisdom (DVD)
By: Karl Brunnholzl
Our Price: $60.00
Members Price: $54.00

In his text The Distinction Between Consiousness and Wisdom the Third Karmapa Rangjung Dorje distinguishes between the two on the basis of the yogachara view and his own practice experience. From the yogacara perspective, the eight consciousnesses are eight forms of confusion and the five wisdoms are their enlightened nature. Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche has said that understanding the distinction between consciousness and wisdom is important for mahamudra practice. Khenpo Karl Brunnholzl provides clear and engaging line-by-line commentary on this text, which begins by explaining that the fundamental difference between the mind of confused sentient beings and the mind of the Buddha is recognizing or not recognizing minds true nature. The text then presents and refutes the essential components of theories that posit substantial existence (arises from self; arises from something else; arises from self and other; arises without cause). Following this introduction, the text explains the eight consciousnesses as they are experienced by deluded mind. Khenpo Karls teaching on these sections of the text (Talks 2  4) takes the form of a lively and wide ranging discussion with the students in attendance. The text together with Khenpo Karls explanation provides a profound view of the eight consciousnesses, which is then further clarified in response to insightful questions from the audience. Khenpo Karls broad ranging study and practice informs his answers resulting in a presentation that is highly educational even for students who have studied the eight consciousnesses in other contexts. In the final talk, Khenpo Karl teaches the verses in the text that explain the wisdom nature of the conciousnesses. The distinction taught in this teaching is not simply of academic interest. This distinction is important to understand to inform our practice. This teaching is so rich with information and insight that practitioners will want to view it more than once. Five talks on five DVDs.

In the Third Turning of the Wheel of Dharma, Buddha taught the Shentong view that emptiness is not merely empty, but rather is endowed with the essence of wisdom.  This is Buddha-nature.  In this teaching, Thrangu Rinpoche emphasizes the importance of cultivating certainty in both the Rangtong (self-empty) and Shentong (other-empty) views as a necessary foundation for practicing the deity practices of the creation stage of secret mantra as well as the completion practices of Mahamudra and Dzogchen. Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen's Mountain Doctrine teaches the view (Buddhan-nature).  This is what is most needed in order to engage in practices to realize the nature of mind.  Dolpopa presents the nature of the ground, how to practice the path and what result is attained through the practice.  Doplopa teaches the view through inference rather than through direct experience. Rather than presenting practice instructions, Dolpopa tells us how to take inference as the path. In these DVD's Thrangu Rinpoche presents detailed teachings and commentary on Dolpopa's Mountain Doctrine.

These teachings present a path for working with emotions that is firmly grounded in the teachings of the Buddhist treatises. At the same time, the format, practice category names and practice sequence used by Rinpoche to present this material are complementary to western psychology and are easily understood by western practitioners. Rinpoche’s introductory talk outlines the view of emotions and methods for working with emotions in the three yanas. The next four talks present a powerful series of practices that encourage practitioners to identify and work with their own particular patterns of emotional reactivity. These stages of practice (mindful gap, clear seeing, letting go, and bringing emotions directly into our practice) are explained with extraordinary skill and clarity. In the concluding talk, Rinpoche relates what he has taught back to the three yanas and provides instructions on taking suffering and happiness to the path. These teachings are engaging, delightful, and highly useful in a direct and personal way.

Lama Yeshe Gyamtso offered the teaching on faith and insight at Karma Triyana Dharmachakra in August 2008. In showing how those two aspects of spiritual development not only do not contradict, but in fact complement each other, he used the traditional model of the four types of faith as his outline: awe, aspiration, belief, and certainty.

The content of this teaching is best described in Lama Yeshe's own words:
"Many people have experienced, as beginners, almost a dichotomy or split between two aspects of what we regard, rightly or wrongly, as spiritual development. One aspect is the cultivation of faith and devotion-we think of that as the more emotional aspect of spirituality. The other aspect is the development of wisdom. As beginners we tend to think of that as more cognitive aspect-we try to learn; we try to understand.

The autobiography of Palden Gyatso, who was arrested in 1959 after taking part in a non-violent demonstration for Tibetan independence. After a failed escape bid he was starved and tortured. Following his release in 1992, after 33 years of captivity, he fled to India and began to reveal the true extent of the Chinese oppression in Tibet.

Palden Gyatso, a Buddhist monk since childhood, was arrested by the Chinese Communist Army in 1959. He spent the next 33 years in prison for the "crimes" of peaceful demonstration and refusal to denounce his apolitical teacher as an Indian spy. He was tortured, starved and sentenced to hard labor. He watched his nation and culture destroyed, his teachers, friends and family displaced, jailed or killed under Chinese occupation.

Fire Under the Snow reaches back to Palden's birth in 1933 and follows him through the Orwellian nightmare that began with the Chinese invasion. We cut back and forth between the past and Palden's present as an activist, living in exile. Our P.O.V. becomes a "third eye" hovering over Paldens current life, haunted by his memories of the past. We explore the escalating cycle of interrogation and physical violation during his years in prison that ended decades later with Palden's escape from Tibet and a cathartic meeting with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

The film also investigates the basis of Palden's resilience. He claims that faith in Buddhism helped him survive the 33 years of his imprisonment. Furthermore, he insists that he is not angry with the Chinese. He believes these atrocities befell him due to "karma."

While imprisoned, the mere existence of the Dalai Lama was a beacon of hope to Palden and fellow prisoners-of-conscience. They dreamed of being released from their torment and delivered into his open arms. Today, the Dalai Lama and his supporters advance the idea of a "mutually beneficial" autonomy within China, an idea generated from Buddhist philosophy. Palden Gyatso and a sizable constituency are holding-out for total independence. Thus, a painful schism exists. Through discussions lead by Palden, competing political agendas are revealed within the Tibetan exile community.

At the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, we filmed the entirety of Palden's participation in a hunger strike. Using this highly publicized and symbolic event, an attempt is made to draw public attention to Beijing's hosting of the 2008 Olympics. International Olympic Committee Vice President Mario Pescante visits the site of the hunger strike to negotiate a cessation of the action, and reveals the impotence of his position. We capture Palden's dedication to the cause, his mentoring of the younger Tibetan hunger strikers, and his emotional recollections of lost comrades. The strike throws into harsh relief the reality that human rights concerns are trampled under by naked economic ambitions.

Despite all, Palden Gyatso remains unbroken, keeping the flame of his spirit ablaze.

Fire Under the Snow reveals the contours of an inspirational story: the survival of a mind and a soul under unthinkable duress.

“Grant your blessings to myself and all beings that our minds may go to the Dharma.
Grant your blessings that the Dharma may become a path.
Grant your blessings that the path may clarify bewilderment.
Grant your blessings that bewilderment may arise as wisdom.”

Despite their brevity, these lines express the entirety of the Buddha’s teachings. In this masterful exposition, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche illuminates their meaning in a series of six talks. Beginning with the story of Lord Gampopa, the great bodhisattva who integrated the Kadampa lineage of Atisha with the mahamudra lineage of Milarepa, it continues with the motivation for turning one’s mind to Dharma, developing the correct motivations for practice, concise explanation of the methods of vajrayana practice, and finally mahamudra.
