Genealogies of Mahayana Buddhism: Emptiness, Power and the question of Origin
By: Joseph G Walser
Pre-Order
Our Price: $39.95

In a work that contributes both to a general theory of religion and power for religious studies as well as to the problem of the origin of a Buddhist movement, Walser argues that that it is the neglect of political and social power in the scholarly imagination of the history of Buddhism that has made the origins of Mahayana an intractable problem.

Today, a new generation of Buddhists searches for ways to adopt Vajrayana while staying true to its historical legacy. Modern Tantric Buddhism unpacks the principles and applications of this esoteric practice in an accessible and meaningful manner, connecting its roots to a socially engaged, modern-day dharma. Taking a traditional Tibetan pedagogical approach, Lama Justin von Bujdoss divides the book into three thematic sections: Body, as it applies to physicality and embodiment; Speech, or ethical action; and Mind, the context of awakening.

Vegetarianism and Animal Ethics in Contemporary Buddhism
By: James Stewart
Pre-Order
Our Price: $49.95
Members Price: $44.96

Buddhism is widely known to advocate a stance of total pacifism towards all sentient beings, and because of this, it is often thought that Buddhist doctrine would stipulate that non-violent food practices, such as vegetarianism, be mandatory. However, the Pali source materials do not encourage vegetarianism and most Buddhists do not practice it.

The Lotus Sutra is regarded as one of the world's great religious scriptures and most influential texts. It's a seminal work in the development of Buddhism throughout East Asia and, by extension, in the development of Mahayana Buddhism throughout the world. Taking place in a vast and fantastical cosmic setting, the Lotus Sutra places emphasis on skillfully doing whatever is needed to serve and compassionately care for others, on breaking down distinctions between the fully enlightened buddha and the bodhisattva who vows to postpone salvation until all beings may share it, and especially on each and every being's innate capacity to become a buddha.

Presented here for the first time in English: a collection of dohas, or songs of realization, lovingly selected and translated from the large compendium The Indian Texts of the Mahamudra of Definitive Meaning, which was compiled by the Seventh Karmapa. Beautiful, profound, and often outrageous, these verses were generally composed spontaneously and thus have a moving sense of freedom, openness, and bliss. They range from summaries of the entire path of Mahamudra to pithy four-liners that point directly to the buddha within us. The authors include famous masters like Saraha and Naropa, dakinis, kings, and also courtesans and cobblers, showing that realization is accessible to all of us, right here in our lives.

Las ensenanzas de Padmasambhava Y el budismo tibetano
Las ensenanzas de Padmasambhava Y el budismo tibetano
By: Fernando Mora
Pre-Order
Our Price: $13.95
Members Price: $12.56

El presente libro desarrolla ciertos aspectos historico-religiosos de la figura de este trascendental maestro espiritual e incide en algunos elementos poco explicados de las ensenanzas budistas. De este modo, ademas de exponer el sustrato filosofico que subyace a cada práctica meditativa -analizando, por ejemplo, las diversas nociones de la vacuidad, la funcion y el significado de las deidades meditativas tantricas o la contemplación de la verdadera naturaleza de la mente-, este trabajo presenta de manera fidedigna una detallada exposicion del dzogchen -o Gran Perfeccion-, unas instrucciones que segun algunos maestros constituyen el punto culminante de la contemplacion budista y que sólo muy recientemente han comenzado a hacerse publicas en Occidente. En la misma tonica, estas páginas tambien recogen el legendario origen de las ensenanzas tantricas, el modo en que se transmitieron las primeras instrucciones del dzogchen o una explicacion sobre los «tesoros espirituales» (termas), un conjunto de textos doctrinales y objetos sagrados ocultados por ciertos maestros en los albores del budismo y que han ido descubriendose a lo largo de los siglos hasta llegar a nuestros días.

Milarepa: Tibet's Supreme Yogi The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje
Milarepa: Tibet's Supreme Yogi
By: The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje
Delayed release
Our Price: $19.95
Members Price: $17.96

In this original play, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, made full use of the genre of theater to bring Milarepa's suffering and spiritual transformation to life. His Holiness the Karmapa transmitted the entire life of Milarepa in a single, magnificent evening, staged on the Tibetan New Year's Day (Losar) in 2010 in the most sacred site for Buddhists, Bodhgaya, India. Twenty thousand people turned out to view this world-class theatrical event, created by His Holiness and performed by actors from the Tibetan Institute for the Performing Arts (TIPA).

Combining elements of Tibetan opera with modern theater, this dramatic work allowed the audience to connect with the life of Tibet's most revered yogi in new and vivid ways.

The script for the six-act play, composed by the 17th Karmapa himself, is complemented in this book by photographs of the original performance as well as traditional scroll painting and modern artistic depictions of events from Milarepa's remarkable life.
