Wilfrid Sellars and Buddhist Philosophy
Genealogies of Mahayana Buddhism: Emptiness, Power and the question of Origin
By: Joseph G Walser
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.

Las ensenanzas de Padmasambhava Y el budismo tibetano
By: Fernando Mora
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
By: The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje
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.

Our Price: $10.99
Members Price: $9.89

The ngondro or preliminary practices of Vajrayana Buddhism help you set your intention and commitment to fully follow these teachings. There are several approaches that have been taught. The primary approach involves 500,000 repetitions with at least 100,000 prostrations and other supporting actions. This can be viewed as a massive undertaking by Western practitioners with jobs, families, etc. It can take several years to complete these, and we tend to be impatient! Some masters have given alternative instructions on how to complete these requirements, while still showing to the Lama your commitment and dedication in preparing for the more advanced practices. more info

Buddha ranks among the most often depicted holy figures of the world -
perhaps appearing more than Christ, a subject widely treated by Western
artists. Venerated in all the nations of Asia, and even beyond, his
image took form along the Silk Road, the birthplace of many schools of
Buddhism. Indeed, the Buddhist religion recognizes many Buddhas
representing various traditions: such as Buddhism of the Ancient
Teaching (Theravada), of the Great Vehicle" (Mahayana) and Tantric
Buddhism (Varjrayana).

12 Steps on the Buddha's Path is the extraordinary spiritual journey of a woman once trapped in the downward spiral of alcoholism. Misdiagnosed, Laura Keene was put in a mental hospital and given more than 40 electroshock treatments. Left incapable by the treatments of even speaking a coherent sentence, Keene was released against medical advice and ended up in the back row of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting where she embraced the 12 Step program and gradually recovered. Yet the black hole inside her remained, until, on a trek in the Himalayas, Keene discovered Buddhism and began a new path on the road to recovery. With humor and grace, this brilliant author shows that the experience, strength, and hope of Alcoholics Anonymous meld seamlessly with Buddha's teachings of wisdom and compassion. more info

The face of addiction and alcoholism is a face that many have seen before -- it may be a celebrity, a colleague, or even a family member. And though the 12-step program by itself can often bring initial success, many addicts find themselves relapsing back into old ways and old patterns, or replacing one addiction with another. Author Darren Littlejohn has been there and back, and presents a complimentary guide for recovery to the traditional twelve-step program, out of his own struggles and successes through the study of Zen and Tibetan Buddhism.

No one would deny that the Abhidhamma is a difficult subject to study, for it is the quintessence of the Buddhas teachings, and requires deep insight and understanding into the fundamental principles of Buddhism.  I have, however, always felt that the subject could be made simple.  I was very glad, therefore, surprised indeed, to find that with deep insight, Mr. Baptist had actually succeeded in presenting the main elements of the Abhidhamma in the language of the man-in-the-street.  Anyone with average intelligence should be able to profit by this book considerably.  To my knowledge, no book has yet appeared on so deep a subject in so simple a language.  Mr. Baptist is to be congratulated on his achievement.  Nay, I would go further and suggest that this book should now be translated into Sinhalese that it may reach a wider circle of students, and be made the basis of future Abhidhamma studies to beginners. more info

Here in this book it has been taken into consideration of their ethical behaviour, mental attitude - like latent factors, belief, and other difiling and purifying factors connected with the worldly and spiritual life. In this way, it appears mere a book of psychology than of Philosophy. more info

A translation of Vasubandhu's Abhidharma Kosa Bhasyam.
The Sanskrit word "Abhidharma" means the systematic philosophy of Buddhism. From the time of the Buddha onward, the Buddha's disciples, and many later generations of his followers studied, analyzed, and re-classified the teachings of the Buddha, and in the process created a unique field of study which has come to be known as the Abhidharma. Only a small but important portion of Abhidharma literature has been preserved in its original Sanskrit: Vasubandhu's Abhidharmakosabhasyam, and its commentary, Yasomitra's Vyakhya

Vasubandhu's "Abhidharmakosa-Bhasya" (ca. 380-390), besides its culminating achievement in streamlining the overall structure of the exposition of the preceding "Abhidharma" manuals, is unmatched by any of the preceding manuals in respect of its comprehensiveness - incorporating all important Vaibhasika doctrines since the time of the Abhidharma-mahavibhasa - of its excellent skill in definition and elucidation, and of its ability to clarify the difficult points involved in doctrinal disputations. more info

The Abhidharmasamuccaya is an extremely important text of Mahayana Abhidharma. It contains nearly all the main teachings of the Mahayana and can be considered as the summary of all the works by Asanga. The method of treatment of the subjects in this work is the same as the traditional method found in the texts of the Pali Abhidhamma which preceded it by several centuries, such as the Dhammasangani, Vibhanga and Dhatukatha: posing a question and answering it.

Absence of the Buddha Image in Early Buddhist Art

It is next to impossible today to even think of Buddhism without the presence of the Buddha image! The image of the Buddha, in truth, has not only come to symbolise the essence of Buddhism but is also a brilliant expression of the cultural/artistic achievements of the Buddhists since ancient times. Surprisingly, the Buddha image developed at a later stage of the evolutionary process; after the parinirvana of the Buddha, the Buddhists for a considerable time beheld the Buddha and experienced him in their own minds without taking recourse to the Buddha image itself. more info

Absorption in No External World: 170 Issues In Mind-Only Buddhism
By: Jeffrey Hopkins
Our Price: $59.95

This stand-alone book is the final volume of a trilogy on Mind-Only that Hopkins composed over the last twenty-two years. Here Hopkins presents opinions on crucial issues from twenty-two commentaries on Dzong-ka-ba's The Essence of Eloquence, considered by his followers to be so challenging that it is called his steel bow and steel arrow, hard to pull but powerful when one succeeds. The careful and intense analysis with which these scholar-yogis probe these 170 issues over time opens a door into patterns of thought that constitute the environment of the text. Hopkins' lively style draws the reader into the drama, stimulating the reader's metaphysical imagination. more info

His is the only complete reconstruction that we possess of the Tibetan religion, founded entirely on canonical texts. And all of this more than a century before Europeans had any knowledge of the Tibetan language.

There is no more powerful mind than bodhicitta. There is no more joyous mind than bodhicitta. For the accomplishment of one's own ultimate purpose, the awakening mind is supreme, and to accomplish the purpose of all other living beings there is nothing superior to bodhicitta. The awakening mind is the unsurpassable way to collect merit. To purify obstacles bodhicitta is supreme. For protection from interferences bodhicitta is supreme. It is the unique, all-encompassing method. Every kind of ordinary and supra-mundane power can be accomplished through bodhicitta. Thus, it is absolutely precious.

Madhyamaka, or the Middle Way, is accepted by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism as the most profound expression, in philosophical terms, of emptiness, the true nature of phenomena. Emptiness is the basis on which the whole of Mahayana practice is founded, from the mind-training meditations on bodhichitta to the advanced yogas of tantra and dzogchen. The Madhyamaka tradition, inaugurated by Nagarjuna and dominant in India for over a thousand years, remains a vibrant force in Tibetan Buddhism.

By: Parimal G. Patil

Arguments about the existence of God are not confined to the West.
Buddhist and Hindu philosophers in premodern India engaged in
centuries-long arguments about the existence of a God-like being called
"Isvara" and the religious epistemology used to support them. These
arguments culminated in a sophisticated critique by the eleventh-century
Buddhist intellectual Ratnakirti, one of the last great Buddhist
philosophers of India. By focusing on Ratnakirti's arguments against his
Hindu opponents, Parimal G. Patil summarizes South Asian intellectual
practices and shows how the philosophy and intellectual history of
religions was understood in precolonial South Asia.

The result, regardless of whatever physical limitations we may be experiencing, is the possibility of cultivating and living increasingly from kindness and gratitude two of the essential qualities of a life of satisfaction and equanimity. more info

The two most dominating personalities of India, Buddha and Gandhi, have dwelt on the notion Ahimhsa as the most important aspect of moral life. There is a definite commonality of ideas and sources of the thought of Buddha and Gandhi. Several important parts of their thinking appear to derive from similar or shared concerns. Both of them adumbrated extensive systems of ethics within which all aspects of their thinking were organized. Ahimsa is the keynote of the ethics of Buddhism. Non-injury in thought word and deed, love, goodwill, patience, endurance, forgiveness, compassion, and self-purification are the virtues to be cultivated. Buddhist morality is the mean between self-indulgence and self-mortification-the middle way. more info

Such activity is not supposed to be theory, but a practical fact, a sacred pledge (samaya) integrated into the fibre of one's every mode of conduct on the path to enlightenment and liberation from the samsara. However, as this text elaborates, all good intent along this line falls flat in the light of the practice condoned by many Buddhists of meat consumption. more info
Ajanta Caves; Ancient Paintings of Buddhist India
Ajanta Caves; Ancient Paintings of Buddhist India

In 1819, a group of British soldiers on a hunting expedition chanced upon the Ajanta caves in a ravine some 200 miles north-east of Bombay. Ranging from the second century BC to the sixth century AD, the breathtaking Buddhist paintings and sculptures found there rank among the world's most important cultural treasures.

Ajanta provides virtually the only evidence remaining of painting styles that first developed in India and then travelled with the spread of Buddhism into the Himalayan regions, and then via the Silk Roads across Central Asia into China, and from there to Japan and Korea.

Situated about 106 kilometers from Aurangabad in Maharashtra, Ajanta rock cut caves are creations of about 700 years, roughly from 200 BC to AD 525. This glorious Buddhist art of the Deccan was discovered in 1819, and given a World Heritage status by UNESCO in 1983. The most striking characteristic of Ajanta art is that architecture, sculpture and painting--the three expressions of fine art--all articulate at one place. Ajanta paintings give us graphic insights into the history of Buddhism in India. The caves also help us reconstruct the interrelationship between such centers in Central Asia and China, as also those in Buddhist countries like Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, which have similar specimens, but from a later period. more info

The Alambana-pariksa, "Examination of the Object of Consciousness," seeks to establish that the object of consciousness (alambana) as it appears to us is unreal; only consciousness is real. Dinnaga (or Dignaga) was a student of Vasubandhu, and this text, although brief, is an influential work of the Citta-matra or Mind-Only school. Dinnaga is most famous as the author of the Pramana-samuccaya and founding father of the Buddhist school of logic, and he here uses reasoning to establish his thesis. This book includes Dharmapala's commentary, retranslations into Sanskrit from Chinese and Tibetan, English translations, and Tibetan texts. more info
