Ani-La: The Nuns from Redna Menling
Ani-La: The Nuns from Redna Menling
By:J. van de Belt
Sale Price: $40.00
Members Price: $40.00

The Bon religion is often seen as a part of Tibetan Buddhism but its bond is actually far more complex and has its own origin in the history of Tibet. The role of women worshipping in Bon and in Tibetan Buddhism is quite different. And although there are studies on Buddhist nuns, there is hardly any research available on nuns in the Bon tradition. This pioneering study vividly portrays the nuns of the Redna Menling monastery in Dolanji (India), the headquarters of the Bon religion, in exile. It focuses on the developments of the Bon in exile, the specific context in which Bon nuns live and how the monastic tradition takes shape. It provides interesting insights into the monastic community in exile, the historic context of the Bon religion as well as the personal motives to become a nun.

Bon, Tibet's Ancient Religion
Bon, Tibet's Ancient Religion
By: Christoph Baumer

Members Price: $54.00

Until well into the eighth century, Bon was the dominant religion and culture on the roof of the world; it is in essence the belief system of ancient Tibet. From the second half of the eighth century onward, B÷n was superseded by Buddhism, which had traveled north from India, and the two religions came to influence each other in both doctrine and ritual. In spite of the eventual dominance of Buddhism through its position as the state religion, however, a reformed Bon school has been able to assert itself down to the present.

The book contains the work of scholars esteemed in the field and in particular that of Tibetan-born scholar Samten G. Karmay, who has contributed a historical overview of Bon religion to the present volume. Jeff Watt, curator of the Rubin Museum of Art, does much in his essay to distinguish between Bon and Buddhist art, with which it is so often confused, and in doing so brings out its unique character. The other contributors look at specific topics within Bon, including its paintings, sacred geography and its foundation, in efforts to set its art and artefacts within their contexts. The purpose of this book is to enable the reader to appreciate the beauty of Bon art whilst, at the same time, gaining an understanding of the spirit of Bon from the time of its foundation through to the present day.

In 1959 a young monk named Tsung Tsai (Ancestor Wisdom) escapes the Red Army troops that destroy his monastery, and flees alone three thousand miles across a China swept by chaos and famine. Knowing his fellow monks are dead, himself starving and hunted, he is sustained by his mission: to carry on the teachings of his Buddhist meditation master, who was too old to leave with his disciple.
Nearly forty years later Tsung Tsai — now an old master himself — persuades his American neighbor, maverick poet George Crane, to travel with him back to his birthplace at the edge of the Gobi Desert.

Nowadays there are two principal philosophical traditions followed by Tibetan Lamas. The first is found among the Sarmapas, or Newer Schools, which employ the Prasangika Madhyamaka view of Chandrakirti, not only in explicating the real meaning of the Sutra system but also in their interpretation of the Tantras. The second is found among the two Older Schools, the Nyingmapa and the Bonpo, which emphasize the Dzogchen point of view in elucidating their understanding of the Higher Tantras. Among the Older Schools, Dzogchen, “the Great Perfection”, which lies beyond the process of Tantric transformation, is regarded as the quintessential teaching of the Buddha, pointing directly to the Nature of Mind and its intrinsic awareness, known as Rigpa.

-HERE IS THE CORE of the Buddha's teaching in his own words, as memorized word for word by his disciples and written down two hundred years after his death. These selections deal with the search for truth, the way of contemplation, the experience of sorrow, death, and many other topics, serving as an excellent introduction to the Buddna's teaching. Whether addrressed to monks and nuns, kings, householders, or outcastes, the Buddha's teachings are characterized by one main concern: conveying the reality of our bondage to suffering and the supremely good news that liberation is possible. As a result, these teachings are as relevant for people today as they were for the people of north India a millennium and a half ago.

By: Douglas J. Penick

"Crossings On A Bridge of Light" is the first English rendition of a vibrant and pivotal episode in the Gesar of Ling epic. In this story, Gesar, King of Ling, moves between life and death to free his mother from the bonds of hell. He traverses the six realms of being and passes through the five traditional states (bardos). His journey reaches its apex in four visions of the enlightened rulers of the Kingdom of Shambhala. Gesar's inner journey, his encounters with a panoply of beings embodying the spontaneous presence of the awakened state, enable him to heal the doubts and divisions that have come to threaten his kingdom. This tale of how the vision of an enlightened society can be realized on this earth has inspired people for many centuries; it is equally powerful today.

Throughout the centuries, moral philosophers have considered a permanent and eternal law a necessary requirement for the formulation of a moral principle. In contrast, early Buddhism presented a radical theory of impermanence. Interpreters of this tradition, however, have been persistent in viewing nirvana or freedom as a permanent and eternal state in contrast to the impermanent world of sensory experience and bondage.

Our recognition of our potential to awaken is the basis of the spiritual practice according to Bon. Through this knowledge we have the choice to either remain as we are or to transform our mind and our life. This thought that turns the mind toward its essence is the aspiration of the Intimate Mind. It allows us to approach whatever we encounter with genuine feelings of love, compassion, and care; a capacity that is calm and poised keeping us strong, stable, and clear, without fear, chaos or judgment. Tempa Dukte Lama helps us remember our potential of innate goodness. Based on this recognition, he offers teachings from the three Bon paths of Sutra, Tantra, and Dzogchen that will guide us on the path of transformation.

Kailas Histories: Renunciate Traditions and the Construction of Himalayan Sacred Geography
By: Alex McKay
Our Price: $180.00

Tibet's Mount Kailas is one of the world’s great pilgrimage centres, renowned as an ancient sacred site that embodies a universal sacrality. But Kailas Histories: Renunciate Traditions and the Construction of Himalayan Sacred Geography demonstrates that this understanding is a recent construction by British colonial, Hindu modernist, and New Age interests. Using multiple sources, including fieldwork, Alex McKay describes how the early Indic vision of a heavenly mountain named Kailas became identified with actual mountains. He emphasises renunciate agency in demonstrating how local beliefs were subsumed as Kailas developed within Hindu, Buddhist, and Bon traditions, how five mountains in the Indian Himalayan are also named Kailas, and how Kailas sacred geography constructions and a sacred Ganges source region were related.

Lamas, Shamans and Ancestors: Village Religion in Sikkim
By: Anna Balikci
Our Price: $153.00

This careful study of the co-existence over time of Buddhism and shamanism among the Lhopo (Bhutia) people of Sikkim sheds new light on their supposedly hostile relationship. It examines the working relationships between Buddhist lamas and practitioners of bon, taking into consideration the sacred history of the land as well as its more recent political and economic transformation. Their interactions are presented in terms of the contexts in which lamas and shamans meet, these being rituals of the sacred land, of the individual and household, and of village and state. Village lamas and shamans are shown to share a conceptual view of reality which is at the base of their amiable coexistence. In contrast to the hostility which, the recent literature suggests, characterizes the lama-shaman relationship, their association reveals that the real confrontation occurs when village Buddhism is challenged by its conventional counterpart.

The main purpose of this instruction is to engender a deep aversion for samsaric existence, along with the aspiration to attain permanent freedom from it.
