Maitreya’s text shows how to practice the generosity, patience, energy, discipline, concentration, and wisdom that are essential to saving all beings. The commentaries by Khenpo Shenga and Ju Mipham provide profound insight into the bodhisattva path. “ The translators have rendered this text, together with two of its most informative Tibetan commentaries, into the most accessible and readable English now available. For the systematic study and practice of Mahāyāna Buddhism, there is no better classical source than this.” —John Makransky, Associate Professor of Buddhism, Boston College “This collection of some im- portant and rare works on this text that specially emphasize its meditation and Mahāmudrā aspects is a great contribution to the Buddhist literature in English. I am grateful to Karl Brunnhölzl for this work, as he is not only a scholar but also an experienced practitioner of these teachings, and has been for many years.”— Ringu Tulku, author of Confusion Arises as Wisdom Paperback Paperback $19.95 $19.95 Paperback $19.95 “On the path to greater freedom and wisdom, psychotherapy typically en- courages us to get to know our feelings, even to follow them into stories of meaning and action. Buddhism, on the other hand, tends to encourage us to temper or ignore our feelings as a means to liberation from suffering. Rob Preece guides us in a tremendously useful and practical dialogue between these two disciplines.”—Polly Young-Eisendrath, PhD, author of The Resilient Spirit and The Present Heart Paperback Paperback $15.95 $15.95 Paperback $15.95 Hardcover Hardcover $49.95 $ Hardcover $49.95 “The translation of this text is a major milestone in bringing Tibetan Buddhist wisdom to the West. One of the legacies of ancient Tibet is the preservation of vast numbers of the Buddhist scriptures in their most complete and authentic forms. This text is a remark- able example of that. It has the power to reveal the rich traditions of Tibetan Buddhism from its surface to its depth, and it will illuminate the minds of those who have the great good fortune to meet with it.” —Anam Thubten, author of No Self, No Problem In 1838 Choying Tobden Dorje, a ngakpa, or lay Buddhist yogi-scholar of the Repkong region of eastern Tibet, completed a masterwork that traces the entire path of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism from beginning to end. Written for laypeople as well as for monastics, it was intended to be accessible, informative, inspirational, and above all, practical. Its twenty-fve books, to be published in six volumes—of which this is the frst— offer a comprehensive and detailed view of the entire Buddhist path according to the original school of Tibetan Buddhism, spanning the vast range of Buddhist teachings from the initial steps to the highest teachings of the Great Perfection. This work is one of the most comprehensive presentations of the Nyingma tradition in Tibetan, and now it is available for readers of English. “For all who love the Dharma, Kaz’s study of the Heart Sutra is a true boon—it serves us as introduction, history, toolbox, and treasure chest of teachings. It reads as a love story, a detective story, and yet it is a stunning scholarly resource. As inspiration, as reference, as deep study, this work is unsurpassable!”—Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, author of Most Intimate: A Zen Approach to Life’s Challenges This, the frst major work from the Drupka Kagya lineage to appear in English, presents a step-by-step program of spiritual exercises that lead to the realization of noduality. “Clearly and extensively presents such topics as ground, path, and fruition; instructions on the four yogas of mahamudra; and detailed descriptions of a yogin’s meditative experiences. It is my hope that it may be of great beneft to those Westerners who wish to study and practice mahamudra.”—H.E. Dorzong Rinpoche Hardcover Hardcover $24.95 $24.95 Hardcover $24.95 Hardcover $34.95 er Hardcover $34.95 $34.95 Hardcover $34.95 “I was born in the Land of Gods, between east and west, in the center, near the Temple of Miraculous Goat-Earth Phenomena.” From that auspicious start, the Nyingma master Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche (1931-2011) went on to teach widely throughout the world beyond his native Tibet. This memoir of his early life and of his dharmic insights into the people and places he later encountered, is funny, idiosyncratic, and thought-provoking.
