Though the abhidharma is recognized as one of the major topics of the Buddhist teachings, up until now there have been few translations of any of the great texts on it available in a Western language. This book contains a translation of one of the greatest presentations of abhidharma in any tradition, Vasubandhu's Verses on the Treasury of Abhidharma, along with the Ninth Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje's clear and concise explanation of it, Youthful Play. Taken together, these two works give a thorough explanation of the abhidharma of the Foundation vehicle as taught in the northern Buddhist traditions that spread to Tibet as well as to China and other East Asian countries.

The realization of impermanence and the inevitability of death have acted as the motivating factor for one to realize the depth of suffering of samsara. Therefore, one has abandoned all concerns with temporal matters, but has given one's thoughts to the welfare of all sentient beings who are one's own mother and father. For their benefit, one would like to attain enlightenment. Furthermore, such an individual may want to achieve enlightenment in one lifetime with one body through use of the effective methods of Vajrayana." from Transcript

By: Bokar Rinpoche
Our Price: $9.95
Members Price: $8.96

"Opening the Door to Certainty" is a condensed version of the Ninth Karmapa's work, "The Ocean of Certainty." It introduces one to the direct understanding of the absolute nature of mind- Mahamudra. Although it is not a substitute for a living teaching but a guide to the path of Mahamudra, this book may serve you as a friendly companion on the journey. The purpose of Mahamudra is not to bring us something new but to introduce us to that which we already have.

At the heart of successful Mahamudra practice is the ability to get directly at the nature of mind. The Ninth Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje (1556 - 1603) , was the acknowledged master of this approach. No more authoritative or useful instructions exist than in his three definitive texts on Mahamudra, of which this easy-to-use, practical manual is the shortest. Pointing Out the Dharmakaya is an indispensable companion to The Ocean of Definitive Meaning, the most vast and detailed of the texts.

The instructions enable the practitioner to get directly at the nature of his or her mind.
