Copper-coloured Palace: Iconography of the rNin ma Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism
Copper-coloured Palace: Iconography of the rNin ma School of Tibetan Buddhism, 3 Volumes
By: Adelheid Herrmann-Pfandt
Pre-Order
Our Price: $450.00
Members Price: $405.00

The rNin ma (Nyingma) pas are the only minority school of Tibetan Buddhism whose iconography differs markedly from the mainstream iconography re-presented by the gSar ma pa or new schools. Scholarly works on rNin ma iconography are quite rare and have so far never covered the whole of the rNin ma pantheon. This book has been written as an attempt to fill this gap, trying to supply introductory as well as comprehensive information, meant for people interested in Tibetan Buddhism, whether lay persons, practitioners, or scholars.

Padmasambhava is a Sanskrit word that literally translates as 'One Born from a Lotus'. An eighth-century Indian Buddhist master, Padmasambhava is widely venerated as a 'second Buddha' across Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and the Himalayan states of India. It is because of him that Tibet gave up her imperialistic attitude and embraced the teachings of the Buddha. The heritage of the Vajrayana Buddhists all over the world can be traced to this one man from India. Due to his immense compassion and kindness towards sentient beings of this age, he is affectionately referred to as Guru Rinpoche-the 'Precious Teacher'. This simple yet deeply illuminating book, written by a master himself and adorned with beautiful and rare illustrations, is a great example of India's timeless Buddhist heritage.

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.

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.

Visionary, artist, poet, iconoclast, philosopher, adventurer, master of the arts of love, tantric yogin, Buddhist saint.

The life and writings of this sage of the Himalayas mark a key turning point in Tibetan history, when twentieth-century modernity came crashing into Tibet from British India to the south and from Communist China to the east. For the first time, the astonishing breadth of his remarkable accomplishments is captured in a single, definitive volume.

The Passion Book is the most famous work of erotica in the vast literature of Tibetan Buddhism, written by the legendary scholar and poet Gendun Chopel (1903-1951). Soon after arriving in India in 1934, he discovered the Kama Sutra. Realizing that this genre of the erotic was unknown in Tibet, he set out to correct the situation. His sources were two: classical Sanskrit works and his own experiences with his lovers. Completed in 1939, his "treatise on passion" circulated in manuscript form in Tibet, scandalizing and arousing its readers.
