  The Tibetan Art of Healing

Author: Baker, Ian A.. Published: October 6, 1997

Description: Editorial Reviews Review Tibetan medicine is becoming better known in the Western hemisphere, and this lavishly illustrated volume makes a great contribution to the dissemination of Tibet's medical knowledge. This work features the luminous recreations of traditional medical thanka paintings by the contemporary Nepalese master painter Romi Shrestha. The accompanying text by Ian Baker, who has studies with Hilalayan healers, yogins, and lamas, for fifteen years, unlocks the symbolism of these images for us. -- Yoga World --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Product Description This volume is intended as an artwork in itself and an object of meditation. Based on a revered collection, long considered lost, of Tibetan "thangkas" - elaborate scroll paintings that portray a philosophy of healing based on Buddhist beliefs, Ayurvedic practices and ancient shamanic traditions - these works may still have much to teach us. Created by a traditional artist from Nepal, Romio Shrestha, using the ancient technique of painting with rich minerals such as powdered gold, and lapis lazuli, the works are intended for the minutest contemplation. Divided into sections illuminating the Tibetan Buddhist view of physiology, pathology, diagnosis and cure, the book demonstrates the processes that sustain, enhance and ultimately transform the life-force. It addresses contemporary ills, such as stress, allergies and heart disease, offering practical advice on treatment and prevention. Going beyond cure, a final section introduces more esoteric perspectives on the interaction of body and mind, presenting the body itself as a source of insight and revelation.

  The Awakening of the West: The Encounter of Buddhism and Western Culture

Author: Batchelor, Stephen. Published: August 1, 1994

Description: From Library Journal Unlike Rick Fields, whose How the Swans Came to the Lake (Shambhala, 1992. 3d ed.) focuses on American Buddhism, ex-Buddhist monk Batchelor (The Faith To Doubt, LJ 2/1/90) examines a broader canvas, surveying 2000 years of Western history. He finds but a handful of Europeans who were directly impressed by Buddhism; only during the last 150 years did any tangible "awakening" occur. While erudite, Batchelor's coverage is diffuse and uneven. Thus, while his chapter on Russian Buddhism is a captivating study of Kalmucks, reincarnated lamas, Stalinist purges, and perestroikan revival, his dismissal of theosophist Elena Blavatsky and painter Nicholas Roerich as "romantic fantasizers" is questionable. Urging Western modifications of Buddhist practice, Batchelor downplays the guru factor that produced an unbroken lineage from Gautama Buddha. Recommended for large collections only. Dara Eklund, Los Angeles P.L. Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Book Description From Greek kings to nineteenth-century adventurers, from missionaries to monks, the encounter of Buddhism and the West is filled with intriguing personalities in Awakening of the West.

  Getting Unstuck: Breaking Your Habitual Patterns & Encountering Naked Reality [AUDIOBOOK]

Author: Chodron, Pema. Published: 2004

Description: Book Description An urge comes up, we succumb to it, and it becomes stronger. We reinforce our cravings, habits, and addictions by giving in to them repeatedly. Pema Chödrön guides us through this "sticky feeling" and offers us tools for learning to stay with our uneasiness, soften our hearts toward others, and ourselves and live a more peaceful life in the fullness of the present moment. About the Author Pema Chödrön is an American bhikshuni, or Buddhist nun in the Tibetan Vajrayana tradition. Since her ordination in 1974, Ane Pema ("Ane" is a Tibetan honorific for a nun) has conducted workshops, seminars, and meditation retreats in Europe, Australia, and throughout North America. She is the director of Gampo Abbey, the first Tibetan Buddhist monastery in North America. Pema Chödrön is also an acharya (master teacher) in the lineage of Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche.

  No Time to Lose: A Timely Guide to the Way of the Bodhisattva

Author: Chodron, Pema. Published: August 14, 2007

Description: From Publishers Weekly Popular Buddhist teacher Chödrön has a surprise for her many readers and students: textual commentary. Her newest book comments at length on an eighth-century text by the Indian Buddhist sage Shantideva. It's a guidebook for developing bodhichitta, an awakened mind that expresses itself in compassionate action to alleviate suffering. The lengthy text will certainly be unfamiliar to beginners, but Chödrön is a wise choice for an escort. She is a clear teacher, explaining key terms (the Sanskrit term klesha, for example, may be translated as neurosis or affliction) and making things simple and characteristically plainspoken ("When we are distracted, we can't remember anything we've studied or read"). She is also the right kind of motivator, telling readers immediately what's in it for them: this book can inspire those who want to make the world a better place. Readers will need a helpful teacher and patience to take up the challenge offered by the long Buddhist text, which has been important in Chödrön's own study. It's not a book for beginners or a good introduction to Chödrön's own body of accessible work. But for those wanting depth and greater awareness of the Buddhist canon, this book opens a door. (Nov. 8) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Review "Chödrön's commentary on Shantideva's text is wise yet humble, and always encouraging."-Yoga Journal "No Time to Lose represents the fruition of Chödrön's years of practice and study: a traditional commentary in which passages from The Way of the Bodhisattva are interspersed with her ever-approachable and pithy instructions for daily life."-Parabola "Chödrön provides consistently clear expositions of Shantideva's sometimes convoluted verses and lines of argument, keeping her eye firmly on the question of how his discussion is relevant to the lives of ordinary people living in modern societies.  A superlative presentation of the text."-Buddhadharma "In this ambitious and profound work, Chödrön hits high stride, creating a wide-ranging, accessible, and soul-stirring commentary on the classic Buddhist text The Way of the Bodhisattva."-Spirituality and Health "Chödrön is a clear teacher, explaining key terms and making things simple and characteristically plainspoken.  She is also the right kind of motivator, telling readers immediately what's in it for them: this book can inspire those who want to make the world a better place."-Publishers Weekly "Pema Chödrön's writings have been helpful to countless numbers of people trying to find some ground for their being in this chaotic world."-Bill Moyers

  The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness

Author: Chodron, Pema. Published: 2003

Description: Editorial Reviews Review 'It's short, and so beautifully written that the reading is a pleasure -- speaks to people of all religious persuasions. The clearsighted practicality of Chodron's approach to the practice of meditation is a persuasive introduction to its benefits in our daily lives. Her voice is , understanding, gently humorous, always kind and seemingly infinitely wise.' The LA Times 'As one of Pema Chodron's grateful students, I have been learning the most pressing and necessary lesson of all: how to keep opening wider my own heart.' Alice Walker 'It is a lively and accessible take on ancient techniques for transforming terror and pain into joy and compassion.' O, the Oprah Winfrey magazine "Pema's deep experience and her fresh way of looking at things are like mountain water -- clear and deep.' Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart and After the Ecstasy, the Laundry. Product Description One of the most inspiring spiritual teachers of our time offers simple, practical advice for living with less fear, less anxiety and a more open heart. Bought in a hotly contested auction, The Places That Scare You is now available in massmarket, taking Pema Chodron 's spiritual teachings to a wider audience. We always have a choice, Pema Chodron teaches: we can either let the circumstances of our lives harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kind. This unique book shows us how to awaken our basic goodness and connect to others. In her lively, contemporary voice, Chodron translates the wisdom of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition for the layperson. Her wisdom cuts across all traditions and religions -- appealing to everyone from the Dalai Lama's followers to ordinary people trying to make sense of their lives. This title has gone straight onto the bestseller lists in the USA, where it has just been published. Recently profiled in Oprah's O magazine, Pema Chodron is a spiritual teacher for anyone -- whether they have a spiritual path or not. Her heartfelt advice and wisdom (developed in her 20 years of practice as a Tibetan Buddhist nun as well as her years previously as a normal 'housewife and mother') give her a wide appeal. Particularly in these difficult times, this advice strikes just the right note, offering us comfort and challenging us to live deeply and contribute to creating a more loving world.

  Practicing Peace in Times of War

Author: Chodron, Pema. Published: August 29, 2006

Description: From Publishers Weekly This gifty little book by the American Buddhist nun Chödrön is a solid reinforcement of what she has been saying for many years and in many books. Here, her focus is on the relationship between aggression within and the aggression that fuels war. Chödrön begins with some disquieting observations, such as that we can all be fundamentalists--that is, self-righteous and closed-minded--and that peace demonstrators are not terribly peaceful. Like other Buddhist teachers on the subject of political action, she sees a direct connection between what is in the heart and expressed in outward actions. She teaches how to stop the reflexive and habitual emotional reaction to perceived hostility through patience, pausing, breathing. It's not easy, but it is simple. Chödrön is also provocative: insecurity has a positive function, she suggests, so don't run away from it. Some of what this skillful teacher says is almost too simple or underexplained, which can happen when a talk becomes a book, as is the case here. "Don't spin off" is a condensed instruction that is a little too condensed. While it may intrigue beginners, this book will be a better gift for those who are already familiar with Chödrön's body of work. (Sept. 5) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Product Description With war and violence flaring  all over the world, many of us are left feeling vulnerable and utterly helpless. In this book Pema Chödrön draws on Buddhist teachings to explore the origins of aggression, hatred, and war, explaining that they lie nowhere but within our own hearts and minds. She goes on to explain that the way in which we as individuals respond to challenges in our everyday lives can either perpetuate a culture of violence or create a new culture of compassion. "War and peace begin in the hearts of individuals," declares Pema Chödrön at the opening of this inspiring and accessible book. She goes on to offer practical techniques any of us can use to work for peace in our own lives, at the level of our habits of thought and action. It's never too late, she tells us, to look within and discover a new way of living and transform not only our personal lives but our whole world.

  When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times

Author: Chodron, Pema. Published: September 26, 2000

Description: Amazon.com Much like Zen, Pema Chodron's interpretation of Tibetan Buddhism takes the form of a nontheistic spiritualism. In When Things Fall Apart this head of a Tibetan monastery in Canada outlines some relevant and deceptively profound terms of Tibetan Buddhism that are germane to modern issues. The key to all of these terms is accepting that in the final analysis, life is groundless. By letting go, we free ourselves to face fear and obstacles and offer ourselves unflinchingly to others. The graceful, conversational tone of Chodron's writing gives the impression of sitting on a pillow across from her, listening to her everyday examples of Buddhist wisdom. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Publishers Weekly Pema Chodron, a student of Chogyam Trunpa Rinpoche and Abbot of Gampo Abbey, has written the Tibetan Buddhist equivalent of Harold Kushner's famous book, When Bad Things Happen to Good People. As the author indicates in the postscript to her book: "We live in difficult times. One senses a possibility they may get worse." Consequently, Chodron's book is filled with useful advice about how Buddhism helps readers to cope with the grim realities of modern life, including fear, despair, rage and the feeling that we are not in control of our lives. Through reflections on the central Buddhist teaching of right mindfulness, Chodron orients readers and gives them language with which to shape their thinking about the ordinary and extraordinary traumas of modern life. But most importantly, Chodron demonstrates how effective the Buddhist point of view can be in bringing order into disordered lives.

Description: The Vajra Cutter Sutra is unbelievable. It is one of the most profitable practices, because the root of all sufferings, yours and others, is the ignorance holding ÒIÓ as truly existent - even though it is empty of that; and the ignorance holding the aggregates as truly existent, even though they are empty of that. The only antidote to cut that, to get rid of that and through which to achieve liberation, the total cessation of the suffering causes - delusions and karma - is the wisdom realizing emptiness. This is the subject of the Vajra Cutter Sutra, emptiness. So, each time you read it, it leaves such a positive imprint.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama was born in 1935, and enthroned as the reincarnation of the thirteenth Dalai Lama in 1940. Following the suppression of the Tibetan national uprising in 1959, he escaped to India where he was given political asylum. At the heart of all the Dalai Lama's teaching is the plea for compassion and non-violence, the essential goodness of the human heart, and the need to live well and die well.

An introductory essay provides background about the Buddha and Buddhism so that the 19 subsequent essays are accessible and convey profound thought in clear language with analogies helpful to Westerners.

  Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

Author: Hanh, Thich Nhat. Published: March 1, 1992

Description: Amazon.com Thich Nhat Hanh's writing is deceptive in its subtlety. He'll go on and on with stories about tree-hugging or metaphors involving raw potatoes; he'll tell you how to eat mindfully, even how to breathe and walk; he'll suggest looking closely at a flower and to see the sun as your heart. As the Zen teacher Richard Baker commented, however, Nhat Hanh is "a cross between a cloud, a snail, and piece of heavy machinery." Sooner or later, it begins to sink in that Nhat Hanh is conveying a depth of psychology and a world outlook that require nothing less than a complete paradigm shift. Through his cute stories and compassionate admonitions, he gradually builds up to his philosophy of interbeing, the notion that none of us is separately, but rather that we inter-are. The ramifications are explosive. How can we mindlessly and selfishly pursue our individual ends, when we are inextricably bound up with everyone and everything else? We see an enemy not as focus of anger but as a human with a complex history, who could be us if we had the same history. Suffice it to say, that after reading Peace Is Every Step, you'll never look at a plastic bag the same way again, and you may even develop a penchant for hugging trees. --Brian Bruya From Publishers Weekly "Next time you are caught in a traffic jam . . . sit back and smile . . . a smile of compassion and loving kindness." While such sappy Zen advice from a Buddhist monk, a Vietnamese resident in France following his exile in 1966, could send Western seekers of enlightenment into overdrive, fortunately most of the suggestions offered in this slim guidebook are of more substance. In a series of vignettes and short passages, e.g., "Cooking Our Potatoes," Nhat Hanh outlines techniques for living mindfullly, that is, in the present. Emphasizing that all things are interconnected on personal and political levels, he notes, for example, that the wealth of one society is based on the poverty of others. This book of illuminating reminders bids us to reorient the way we look at the world, turning away from a goal-driven, me-first modality toward a humanitarian perspective.

  Seven Years In Tibet

Author: Harrer, Heinrich. Published: December 1, 1997

Description: Amazon.com Originally published in 1953, this adventure classic recounts Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer's 1943 escape from a British internment camp in India, his daring trek across the Himalayas, and his happy sojourn in Tibet, then, as now, a remote land little visited by foreigners. Warmly welcomed, he eventually became tutor to the Dalai Lama, teenaged god-king of the theocratic nation. The author's vivid descriptions of Tibetan rites and customs capture its unique traditions before the Chinese invasion in 1950, which prompted Harrer's departure. A 1996 epilogue details the genocidal havoc wrought over the past half-century. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From AudioFile In this fascinating memoir Pigott-Smith's intonations reveal practically nothing of the German rogue who befriended the boy Dalai Lama in Tibet. His mellifluous British cadences are in the style of documentary narration -- excellent documentary narration, in fact -- not of personal confession. Anyone expecting a spiritual journey will be disappointed. The schematic abridgment tells an arresting tale of how a fugitive from the World War rose to prominence in an exotic locale and met the living incarnation of Buddha before being forced to flee. Whatever enlightenment Harrere achieved from the horse's mouth, as it were, gets short shift. Y.R.

  Siddhartha

Author: Hesse, Hermann. Published: December 1997

Description: Siddhartha (novel) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Siddhartha is an allegorical novel by Hermann Hesse which deals with the spiritual journey of an Indian man called Siddhartha during the time of the Buddha. The book, Hesse's ninth novel, was written in German, in a simple, yet powerful and lyrical style. It was first published in 1922, after Hesse had spent some time in India in the 1910s. It was published in the U.S. in 1951 and became influential during the 1960s. "Siddhartha" means "he who has attained his goals" or "every wish fulfilled". The Buddha's name, before his renunciation, was Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later the Buddha. The main character of Siddhartha in the book is not the same person as the Buddha, who in the book goes by the name "Gotama".

  What Makes You Not a Buddhist

Author: Khyentse, Dzongsar Jamyang. Published: December 5, 2006

Description: From Publishers Weekly Here at last is a crisp new voice in Tibetan Buddhism. Khyentse, a lama from an influential family and Buddhist lineage in Bhutan, is also a filmmaker, responsible for the sleeper hit The Cup, about a group of Tibetan monks obsessed with soccer. The monk brings the same multicultural fluency to his first book. He can make references to Viagra and Camilla Parker-Bowles as easily as he can tell stories of the Buddha's life. With confidence tempered by wit, he cuts to the core of Buddhism: four "seals"--truths--that make up a Buddhist "right view" of the world and existence. This book is not, repeat not, about meditation. Instead, it looks at everyday life through a Buddhist lens, understanding happiness and suffering from that perspective. Enlightenment ends suffering but also trumps happiness. Khyentse writes persuasively about the importance of understanding emptiness: disappointment lessens, expectations soften, and change is not a shock. There is much food for thought in this short book for Buddhist students and for anyone interested in the ongoing adaptation of traditional Eastern wisdom into postmodern Western settings. "You can change the cup," Khyentse writes, "but the tea remains pure." (Jan. 9) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  Story of Tibet: Conversations with the Dalai Lama

Author: Laird, Thomas. Published: 2007

Description: From Publishers Weekly In a tenderly crafted study that is equal parts love letter, traditional history and oral history, Laird chronicles the development of Tibet from its mythic origins to its takeover by Communist China in 1950. Weaving historical research with interviews with the Dalai Lama, Tibet's exiled leader, veteran journalist Laird (Into Tibet: The CIA's First Atomic Spy and His Secret Expedition to Lhasa) offers insight into the triumphs and failures of the country. In one particularly fascinating section, the Dalai Lama expresses reservations about the truth of the Tibetan creation myths involving a demon and a monkey and accepts Darwin's theory of evolution as the most logical explanation of the origins of humankind. Laird traces Tibet's sometimes tortured relationships with China and India, recounting the country's conflicts with the Mongols and the Manchu Empire, as well as its struggles for independence in the face of Chinese occupation. The Dalai Lama also recounts his early life; vividly recalls his first meeting, at age 19, with Mao Zedong; and reflects on his years in exile and his hopes for Tibet to be freed from occupation. Throughout, Laird's colorful and lively writing brings to life thousands of years of Tibetan history, inviting the reader on his journey to a strange and wonderful land.

  The World of Tibetan Buddhism: An Overview of Its Philosophy and Practice

Author: Lama, Dalai. Published: March 25, 1995

Description: From Publishers Weekly In his foreword to The World of Tibetan Buddhism, actor Richard Gere describes the Dalai Lama as "universally respected as one of our greatest spiritual friends." The implied sentiment of equality and ease is appropriate for this manual by His Holiness, who here continues his loving attack on the West through publishing. A guidebook, this fluid translation by Geshe Thupten Jinpa of talks given by the Dalai Lama in London in 1988 is suitable for beginners in, as well as more advanced practitioners of, the Buddhist way, for it discusses general Buddhism as well as the esoteric Vajrayana Buddhism of Tibet. Of interest and also useful to any reader is the central section, "An Altruistic Outlook and Way of Life," in which the benefits of the Dalai Lama's clear mind are in abundance. Just before the glossary and bibliography at the end of this substantive textbook, His Holiness closes his remarks on the specifics of daily practice with typical simplicity: "This is the way: try, try, try!! Then, over time, there is hope." Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal This overview of Tibetan Buddhism is a rare and marvelous opportunity for Engish-language readers to learn more about the special viewpoints of the religion and the approach of spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama. The book covers an overview of general Mahayana Buddhism, the importance of an altruistic life for spiritual practice, and the tantric practices of the Vajrayana Buddhism of Tibet. Originally a series of lectures, the three each chapters each end with a set of questions from the audience and the Dalai Lama's answers. The book also includes a glossary of selected Buddhist terms as well as an excellent bibliography and index. The Dalai Lama has provided a lucid and profound yet eminently readable introduction to this subject. Recommended for any library needing a good introduction to Tibetan Buddhism.

  Cave in the Snow: A Western Woman's Quest for Enlightenment/Vicki Mackenzie

Author: MacKenzie, Vicki. Published: July 27, 1999

Description: Amazon.com Review It sounds like a legend out of medieval Tibet: the ascetic who leaves home to join the Buddhist order, then spends 12 years in a cave, 15 hours a day in a meditation box. This is no legend, but you could call Tenzin Palmo legendary in her single-minded pursuit of higher realizations. From the East End of London to halfway up the Himalayas, she is now back in society, attempting to pull medieval Tibetan Buddhism into the modern era--women's rights and all. As biographer Vickie Mackenzie says by way of background, a group of elite women practitioners called "Togdemnas" still existed just decades ago. Tenzin Palmo, having studied with her male counterparts, is now canvassing the planet, welcoming women into full participation in Tibetan Buddhism and building support for an academy of Togdemnas that she plans to establish in the Himalayas. Mackenzie helps raise awareness for women's roles in Tibetan Buddhism by going into some detail about obstacles still faced by women as well as heroines who have overcome those obstacles, such as Yeshe Tsogyel (Sky Dancer) and Machig Lapdron, a mother who started her own lineage. If Mackenzie has it her way, it won't be long before Tenzin Palmo joins that list of heroines. --Brian Bruya --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Library Journal Very possibly, the central figures of these two books?one German, the other British?met during their Buddhist training and charitable work. They undergo similar transformations, abandoning established middle-class lives to adhere to strict Buddhist rules of self-denial, meditation, and hardship. Khema, however, escaped Nazi Germany and had a remarkably peripatetic life that entailed two marriages and much travel. Her telling of her search for Buddhism and life as a nun dwells on the facts of her travels and good works rather than inner thoughts. Despite professions of humility and selflessness, she appears arrogant and proud. But perhaps this impression comes from the process of dictation and a translation from German that is full of cliches and inappropriate expressions. On the other hand, in Cave in the Snow, Mackenzie, a journalist with a special interest in Buddhism, recounts with passion and beauty the story of Tenzin Palmo (nee Diane Perry), which involved 12 years of living in an Indian cave, snowbound for eight months of each year. She delves into Palmo's motivations, feelings, thoughts, and teachings, presenting the facts of her life while preserving the anguish, desire, conviction, and conflict that accompanied her conversion to Buddhism. The result is thoroughly engrossing.?Kitty Chen Dean, Nassau Coll., Garden City, NY Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  Tree of Knowledge: the biological roots of human understanding/ Humberto Maturana and Francisco J. Varela.

Author: Maturana, Humberto R.. Published: 1992

Description: From Library Journal This book was originally a series of lectures by the Chilean coauthors, sponsored by the Organization for American States. It applies science, especially what is known of neural systems, to philosophical questions about human perception and understanding. The arguments are built up methodically, beginning with the origin of life and continuing through the the development of language in humans. The main virtues of the book are its logical approach and its use of examples. However, the style is in many places unnecessarily abstruse. The book will yield profitable discussion for philosophers, social scientists, and some lay readers. Margery C. Coombs, Zoology Dept., Univ. of Massachusetts, Amherst Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review "A refreshing and new approach to cognition--one which has dramatic cultural, social, and ethical ramifications. . . . While stimulating the imagination of readers it has, however, not received the scholarly acclaim it richly deserves."-- Journal of Religion and Psychical Research "A book with great breadth and ambition . . .

The basic premise of Buddhism is that all suffering, however real it may seem, is the product of our own minds.Rebecca Novick's concise history of Buddhism and her explanations of the Four Noble Truths, Wheel of Life, Karma, the path of the Bodhisattva, and the four schools help us understand Tibetan Buddhism as a religion or philosophy, and more important, as a way of experiencing the world.

  A Buddhist spectrum: Contributions to Buddhist-Christian dialogue

Author: Pallis, Marco. Published: 1981

Description: Editorial Reviews Product Description These ten essays cover a wide range of topics which are both specific to Buddhism as well as being pertinent to other religious traditions, most notably Christianity (e.g. "Living One's Karma," "Is There a Problem with Evil?" "Is There Room for 'Grace' in Buddhism?" "Nembutsu as Remembrance," "Dharma and the Dharmas," and "Archetupes, as Seen through Buddhist Eyes"). Collectively they represent the crowning achievement of the only member of the "inner circle" of traditionalist authors who was formally attached to Buddhism. Brother David Steindl-Rast OSB has called his volume "a rich resource for dialogue between Christians and Buddhists" characterized by an "extraordinary grasp of the refinements of Buddhist thought." Like Buddhism itself, Pallis' writings possess at the same time the yielding gentleness of a flowing stream and the implacable resistance of a mountain. And like all of Pallis's books, A Buddhist Spectrum combines the wisdom gained from a lifetime of scholarship with the luminous insights of a seasoned spiritual traveler. Marco Pallis (1895-1990) was an author, a mountain climber, and a professional musician and musicologist. As a result of his mountaineering expeditions in 1923, 1933, and 1936 in southern Tibet, the Himalayas, Sikkim, and Ladak, he visited and stayed in Buddhist monasteries and experienced the spiritual depth and beauty of a living traditional culture. He also gained fluency in the Tibetan language, and developed a life-long commitment to Buddhism, especially in its Vajrayana form, in addition to making many contacts with Buddhist scholars and spiritual authorities during his life. In his seminal work, Traditionalism: Religion in the Light of the Perennial Philosophy, Kenneth Oldmeadow writes that "the work of Marco Pallis radiates a distinctively Buddhist ambience. The tone is less combative and more amiable than that found in the work of some of the other traditionalists but he is no less tough-minded." As one of the earliest translators of the writings of Rene Guenon and Frithjof Schuon, as well as the author of many profound and penetrating articles on both Buddhist topics and the Perennial Philosophy, Pallis was one of the great twentieth-century bridge-builders between East and West. Writing about Pallis at the time of the first publication of this book in 1980, Huston Smith commented: "For insight, and the beauty insight requires if it is to be effective, I find no writer on Buddhism surpassing him." --This text refers to the Paperback edition. About the Author Born in England into a distinguished Greek family, Marco Pallis is considered by many to have been the best of all the writers on Tibetan religion and spirituality. He wrote two books deriving from his experiences in Tibet, Peaks and Lamas (1939), which has become a classic, and The Way of the Mountain (1960). They are a unique blend of travelogue, botanical lore, discursive essays on Tibetan civilization, and metaphysical expositions. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

  Indestructible Truth: The Living Spirituality of Tibetan Buddhism

Author: Ray, Reginald A.. Published: July 23, 2002

Description: This book is divided into 4 parts: The sacred environment, Tibet's story, core teachings, Buddhist philosophy Amazon.com Studying Tibetan Buddhism can be like entering a maelstrom of deities, rituals, and scriptures. In a new introduction to the history, the religion, and the philosophy of Tibetan Buddhism, Reginald Ray calms the storm and provides a compass for exploration. A professor and seasoned practitioner, Ray walks the line between objective historian and caring adviser. With spare precision and rich detail, he tells the story of Buddhism in Tibet, from its great progenitors in India to the larger than life transmitters to the series of schools that developed over the centuries. Ray makes no pretense at secularizing Tibetan Buddhism or diminishing its magical elements. He begins with the multifarious Tibetan cosmos but also covers the major tenets of Buddhism, emphasizing the living practices and their results. Capping the book, Ray devotes a section to the development of Buddhist philosophy, again displaying a knack for putting complex issues debated over centuries into just a few easy-to-understand paragraphs. It would be no exaggeration to say that indestructible truth is the best all-around introduction to Tibetan Buddhism you're likely to find. --Brian Bruya --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Publishers Weekly The tyro learning something about Buddhism will have noticed a trend in books: many are either about how to meditate or they're about theory. Fewer present Buddhist basics from the perspective of practice (that is, practice above and beyond meditation). Filling that gulch is this hefty volume by Ray, a Naropa University Buddhist studies professor, who presents ideas and actions, theory and practice. This book is distinguished by the author's comprehensive attention to detail. He explains both Buddhist cosmology and the history of Buddhism, and cogently outlines Geluk Buddhism, a line of monastic traditions from central Tibet. While many books focus exclusively on Geluk (which is a bit like using the example of Roman Catholicism to explain all of Christianity), Ray also explores non-Geluk practices, though he does not always flag a given practice as Geluk or other. There may be too much of a good thing here. History, doctrine, practice, Geluk, non-Geluk, the kitchen sink. The novice may easily lose the forest for the trees. Clearer chapter introductions would have gone a long way to ameliorating that problem, and a glossary would have been more helpful than the chronology of important dates appended to the book's end. Ray refers to, but never delves deeply into, Tantric Buddhism (but his announced Shambhala 2001 title promises to pick up where this book left off). This tome belongs primarily to the very devoted and the very knowledgeable. Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  The thirty seven practices of Bodhisattvas : an oral teaching / by Geshe Sonam Rinchen ; translated and edited by Ruth Sonam

Author: Rinchen, Geshe Sonam. Published: February 25, 1997

Description: From Library Journal These two volumes present perspectives on the Boddhisattva ideal, the distinguishing characteristic of Mahayana Buddhism that emphasizes the desire for enlightment as an act of altruism toward all beings. A Guide to the Boddhisattva Way of Life is a classic of Tibetan Buddhism, composed in the eighth century by a Buddhist monk. The Wallaces (a professor and a student in religious studies, Stanford Univ.) translated this work with careful attention to Tibetan and Sanskrit versions, which makes their translation unique. The main text has been re-created from the Sanskrit with attention to the Tibetan. Where the nuances in the originals differ significantly, the translation of the Tibetan version is given in the notes. The Thirty Seven Practices of Boddhisattvas is a transcription of an oral teaching by a Buddhist scholar and teacher. The text on which the teaching is given is a set of verses written in the 14th century by a Tibetan Buddhist monk. Like the first title, this work seeks to elucidate the day-to-day practice of the Boddhisattva. The original verses are short and fairly clear, and the commentary by Rinchen makes the meaning and the demanding character of the Boddhisattva ideal realistic for the contemporary reader. The two titles offer insight upon insight as to the way a life should be lead. Rinchen's is perhaps the more accessible to general readers. For the price, any library with an interest in Buddhism would do well to acquire both.?Mark Woodhouse, Elmira Coll. Lib., N.Y. Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.

  The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

Author: Rinpoche, Sogyal. Published: May 9, 2002

Description: Amazon.com In 1927, Walter Evans-Wentz published his translation of an obscure Tibetan Nyingma text and called it the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Popular Tibetan teacher Sogyal Rinpoche has transformed that ancient text, conveying a perennial philosophy that is at once religious, scientific, and practical. Through extraordinary anecdotes and stories from religious traditions East and West, Rinpoche introduces the reader to the fundamentals of Tibetan Buddhism, moving gradually to the topics of death and dying. Death turns out to be less of a crisis and more of an opportunity. Concepts such as reincarnation, karma, and bardo and practices such as meditation, tonglen, and phowa teach us how to face death constructively. As a result, life becomes much richer. Like Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Sogyal Rinpoche opens the door to a full experience of death. It is up to the reader to walk through. --Brian Bruya --This text refers to the Paperback edition. From Publishers Weekly A clear pool of practical wisdom, this rewarding modern reinterpretation of the classic Tibetan Book of the Dead is a manual on learning to accept death, on caring for the dying, and on spiritual growth. Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist teacher who has lived in the West since 1971, maintains that innermost consciousness, rather than an unchanging soul or ego, survives the death of the body. He draws parallels between contemporary Western near-death experiences and the afterlife journey through the bardos, or intermediate planes between death and rebirth, described in sacred Tibetan texts. Bardos, he further argues, are junctures that also occur continually throughout life, opportunities for liberation present in ordinary daily experiences, in sleep and dreams. Rinpoche outlines a path of spiritual transformation that involves meditation, strengthening of positive karma, compassion, generosity and mental exercises. 25,000 ad/promo; author tour.

  As It Is Vol. 1

Author: Rinpoche, Tulku. Published: June 29, 2004

Description: Review "Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche's direct oral instructions inspired admiration, delight in practice, and deep trust and confidence in the teachings among those who met him. His words always helped their minds, in the sense that applying even some of his advice reduced disturbing emotions and naturally allowed compassion, love and insight to blossom." - Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, Introductory Teachings Product Description The teachings presented in As It Is, Volume I are primarily selected from talks given by the Dzogchen master, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, in 1994 and 1995, during the last two years of his life. The unambiguous Buddhist perception of reality is transmitted in profound, simple language by one of the foremost masters in the Tibetan tradition. Dzogchen is to take the final result, the state of enlightenment itself, as path. This is the style of simply picking the ripened fruit or the fully bloomed flowers. Tulku Urgyen's way of communicating this wisdom was to awaken the individual to their potential and reveal the methods to acknowledge and stabilize that prospective. His distinctive teaching style was widely known for its unique directness in introducing students to the nature of mind in a way that allowed immediate experience. This book offers the direct oral instructions of a master who inspired admiration, delight in practice, and deep trust and confidence in the Buddhist way.

The great masters of this time - the 16th Karmapa, Dudjom Rinpoche and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche - all venerated him as one of their root gurus and a jewel in their crown ornament. He was someone who achieved the final relization of the Great Perfection." - Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche Product Description The teachings presented in As It Is, Volume II are primarily selected from talks given by the Dzogchen master, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, in 1994 and 1995, during the last two years of his life.

Informative, unbiased and not overblown history of Buddhism. A former Unitarian as well as more than a few Chritian denominations, Ms. Ross covers the 3 branches with very readable prose. When the subject of miracles comes up, she's objective and does not impose on the reader to believe them. As you might expect, she compares Buddhism with western religions throughout. It's obvious I enjoyed the book but for another reason as well. I sense that Ross is herself a compassionate one who treats her readers with respect for their intellect and was inspired by that. Myself,a former conservative Christian (I just couldn't "get it" for some reason), I appreciated her unbiased and objective writing. As Leonard Da Vinci stated (roughly): An investment in knowledge about a subject is an increase in love for the subject. In this case, the subject is love in a broad sense - a love to help people find happiness by seeing this great religious tradition from its roots as well as current thought. Great book! Always the hard part, tho: practicing what you learn. But Rosses words inspire me to "practice" and not "try" so much.

  The Dzogchen Primer: An Anthology of Writings by Masters of the Great Perfection

Author: Schmidt, Marcia Binder (Compiler). Published: July 23, 2002

Description: From Publishers Weekly (Tibetan Buddhism/Meditation)Dzogchen (pronounced Zog-chen), also known as The Great Perfection, is arguably the heart of Tibetan Buddhist meditation, and in this impressive collection Schmidt pulls together writings from historic and contemporary masters to facilitate study for serious, committed beginners and longtime practitioners. In 35 generally short essays, students can delve into topics such as Re-enlightenment and The True Foundation by recently deceased (1996) Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, who transmitted the complete teachings of the last century's three great masters and who has 10 passages here. They can also find more ancient voices such as the seventh century's Shantideva on the The Excellence of Bodhichitta, or Milarepa, one of Tibet's most famous yogis and poets, who lived 1,000 years ago, on The Song of Realization. This sequential manual is designed to aid individuals as well as Sangha or workshop leaders, and offers facilitator guidelines, a glossary, author profiles and a bibliography. This primer can help students without a teacher or meditation center, but the volume quickly points out that time in the presence of living masters is essential. Not a collection of academic ruminations, this important work also stresses application. As Ch^kyi Nyima Rinpoche says in the introduction, We do not need to let the teachings remain as mere words or ideas; we can put them to use in our own experience. This is how the buddha nature can be revealed, since it is already present in every one of us. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

  His Holiness the Dalai Lama: The Oral Biography

Author: Strober, Deborah Hart. Published: July 4, 2005

Description: From Publishers Weekly The Strobers, who have written oral biographies of John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, use the same techniques here for an oral biography of Tibet's famous spiritual leader. They begin by offering brief profiles of the 54 interviewees, ranging from Western Buddhist VIPs like Robert Thurman, Jeffrey Hopkins and Lama Surya Das (an American convert from Judaism) to Tibetan lamas and monks, including Venerable Lama Thubten Zoba Rinpoche and Lama Lobsang Thamcho Nyima. (Refreshingly, this volume doesn't pander to Hollywood celebrities; Richard Gere is the only famous entertainer interviewed, and he has some genuinely insightful things to say.) The authors arrange the interviewees' snippets thematically, beginning with the lama's basic appeal and personal character before moving through his life chronologically, starting with his recognition as the Dalai Lama at the age of three. (About this, Thurman makes the helpful analogy that it's not only that the lamas are expected to be child prodigies and "little Mozarts," but also that they're believed to have "already written a million symphonies in ten previous lives.") The interviews then cover Chinese occupation and the exile to India, and the Dalai Lama's gradual rise to international fame. Some of the stories are humorous and light, while others are profoundly moving and personal. One of the great strengths of this book is that the interviewees are allowed to discuss the Tibetan political situation at some length, and to speculate on Tibet's evolving relationship with the Chinese government. Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Review "The Dalai Lama is one of the most significant religious leaders of our time. His religious spirit and leadership have endeared him to his followers and to those of us who call him our friend. I hope many people will read this book and share our admiration of the Dalai Lama."-- Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, President Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, Indiana "A warm-hearted account of one of the greatest spiritual leaders of our time."-- Lord George Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury "The Dalai Lama's warm embrace of all humanity places him among the greatest spiritual giants of our time. As a Christian leader who has met him several times, I honour his remarkable spiritual journey and commend this new biography." -- Lord George Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury "You too can know him, the great prophet of compassion whose grace touches us all."-- bell hooks, Distinguished Professor of English, City College, New York, author and contributor to the Shambala Sun "This biography presents a fascinating mosaic of His Holiness the Dalai Lama as a multifaceted individual, viewed from the perspectives of a wide range of people who have encountered him over the past seventy years. The picture that emerges is the epitome of a sublimely balanced human being: with open-minded intelligence and unconditional compassion, an eagerness to engage with the world and a love of solitary meditation, embodying qualities of nobility and humility, of mature authority and childlike humor and playfulness. He is a complex man - a statesman and a holy man - who thinks of himself as a simple Buddhist monk. He inspires us all to become better people and to treat each other with love and respect, as he does with everyone he meets." -- B.

Author: Suzuki, Beatrice Lane. Published: May 1991

Description: Book Description In this outline, the author confines herself to the teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, which accepts many of the doctrines found in all forms of Buddhism. Mahayana accepts many of these doctrines but holds some of them less important. What is most important in Mahayana is Enlightenment, freedom from Illusion, and the aspiration after Buddhahood, and this not only for a few wise monks but for all beings. Mahayana is the religion of the Buddhists of the North and East of Asia and, as such, deserves to be studied and appreciated.

  Boundless Healing: Mediation Exercises to Enlighten the Mind and Heal the Body

Author: Thondup, Tulku. Published: October 17, 2000

Description: Amazon.com Esteemed author and teacher Tulku Thondup offers this convincing guidebook on healing the mind, body, and spirit through meditation. Although Thondup relies on the principles of Buddhism to explain the intimate connection between the mind and body, readers won't feel pressured to become budding Buddhists in order to learn these meditation techniques. In fact, what makes Boundless Healing so effective is Thondup's very detailed and nondogmatic style of teaching meditations. For example, when speaking to a meditation for healing sick cells, he stays focused on the physical and mental sensations, rather than flittering into ungrounded spiritual metaphors: "As your breath is moving through your body, think and feel that all the cells of your body are also breathing. All the trillions of cells of light and blissful heat are breathing from the top of your head to the soles of your feet." Devout Buddhists will find nourishing soul food in his one section devoted to specific Buddhist healing meditations. As for everyone else, Thondup has written an accessible, information-packed book that covers it all--from "Avoiding Expectations" to "Creating a Healing Aura While Sleeping" to "Meditations for the Dead or Dying" to "How Helpers and Survivors Should Behave." Regardless of the disease, discomfort, or desire, Thondup has a meditation up his sleeve, making this one of the most practical handbooks on healing meditations available. --Gail Hudson Review "Filled with ingenious and potent meditation exercises, Boundless Healing provides teachings on sources and benefits of healing, practical tips on meditating beneficially and rejoicing in progress, stages of meditation (on anatomical details of the body, cells as cells of light, feeling each cell as filled with healing energies, sharing the healing waves with others and the universe, etc.), healing with the colors of light, healing with the elements, mediations on the Healing Buddha's, healing meditations for the dying and the dead, and healing practices utilizing heat, bliss, light, breathing, the sound of AH, mantra, and more."--Banyen Books, Branches of Light. "Tulku Thondup was born in Tibet and studied at the Dodrupchen Monastery. He is the author of three previous books including "The Healing Power of the Mind." This immensely practical work spells out the wonders that can abound from tapping the riches of the mind-body connection. Using meditation exercises developed over the centuries in Tibetan Buddhism, Thondup demonstrates how they can help facilitate both peace of mind and physical well-being."--Frederic A. Brussat, Spirituality & Health.

  HEALING POWER OF THE MIND

Author: Thondup, Tulku. Published: August 20, 1996

Description: Amazon.com Review It sounds like science fiction, but more and more people are tapping into the healing power of the mind. Bill Moyers brought this topic to light in a big way with his bestselling Healing and the Mind, but that was just an overview. For step-by-step instructions, you can turn to Tulku Thondup's The Healing Power of Mind. Thondup, Harvard scholar and Tibetan Buddhist monk since the age of 5, says that in the Tibetan tradition the mind is the key to health, and that mental grasping is often the cause of our physical undoing. A cosmic counselor of sorts, Thondup guides us first through simple exercises in relaxation and accepting present circumstances. His healing method centers on visualization, beginning with emotions and moving on to the body. With breathing and sound as part of the package, the meditator creates a sense of well-being and compassion that is ideally carried over mindfully into everyday activities. The accelerated pupil can move on to more complex Buddhist imagery, but no matter how far you go, trusting the healing power of the mind is the first step. --Brian Bruya --This text refers to the Paperback edition. From Publishers Weekly More than just another introduction to meditation, Thondup's book is a rich survey of the healing resources inherent in Nyingma Buddhism, the oldest school of Buddhism in Tibet, offered by one of the truly distinguished exemplars of the ancient monastic tradition rapidly being extinguished by the Chinese occupation of Tibet. Consequently, much of the text rings with a clarity and potent energy sedom found elsewhere among texts on Tibetan Buddhism. In Thondup's view, meditation is not merely a useful way of finding peace of mind and being centered, it is also an important path to healing both mind and body. In simple language, Thondup presents an ancient transformative approach to the true nature of the mind and the sources of suffering. The uncomplicated exercises and insights he presents provide an important link between body and mind that strengthens the immune system and reinforces the health of the student. Thondup's book is a rare and invaluable guide to an ancient Tibetan treasure. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

  Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism

Author: Trungpa, Chogyam. Published: June 12, 1987

Description: Product Description The now classic Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism is the record of two series of lectures given by Trungpa Rinpoche in 1970-71. "First discussed are the various ways in which people involve themselves in spiritual materialism, the many forms of self-deception into which aspirants may fall. After this tour of the sidetracks along the way, the broad outlines of the true spiritual path are discussed. The approach presented is a classical Buddhist one--not in a formal sense, but in the sense of presenting the heart of the Buddhist approach to spirituality. Although the Buddhist way is not theistic, it does not contradict the theistic disciplines. Rather the differences between the ways are a matter of emphasis and method. The basic problems of spiritual materialism are common to all spiritual disciplines." Inside Flap Copy Examines the self-deceptions, distortions, and sidetracks that imperil the spiritual journey as well as awareness and fearlessness of the true path.

Description: Product Description Padmasambhava, the Indian mystic and tantric Buddhist master, is second only to Buddha Shakyamuni as the most famous personage in the Tibetan tradition of Buddhism. In the ninth century, he made the journey across the Himalayan Mountains to establish Buddhism for the people in that country. Now, more than 1,000 years later, we are able to hear and be touched by his voice as contained within this collection of oral advice. The selections in Dakini Teachings are timely advice - short, direct instructions relating to the three levels of Buddhist practice: Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana. The main emphasis of Padmasambhava's teaching is that spiritual knowledge must be personalized and not remain as mere theory. The book includes an introductory discourse by Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and a short biography of Padmasambhava by Jamgon Kongtrul the First. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

  What the Buddha Never Taught

Author: Ward, Tim. Published: February 1993

Description: From Publishers Weekly According to Ward's delightful account of a stay in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand, there are many things that the Buddha never taught. One is the extreme rigor of the Pah Nanachat monastery, involving rising at 3 a.m. for chanting, walking on gravel roads in bare feet and eating only one meal a day. Another, Ward concludes, is that all this self-denial and sacrifice is ultimately hollow. The final lesson is the redemptive power of laughter. Ward, a Canadian journalist, traveled around Asia for six years, eventually winding up at Pah Nanachat, which was built to spread Theravada Buddhism to farangs (or non-Thais). Among the motley crew the author finds at the monastery are an ex-gospel singer from England, a former accountant from China and a former real estate millionaire from Chicago. The head monk is an Australian who used to play jazz guitar in his last life. The book is Ward's affectionate, and often very humorous, account of his sojourn in this place of meditation and renunciation. The volume could have been improved by some sharp editing, but its little redundancies and repetitions help capture the often monotonous life of the monk. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal This book is a first-person narrative of the author's training as a monk in a Theravada Buddhist monastery in Thailand. Unlike other books in which Westerners find new meanings to life from Eastern religious training or praise Eastern mysticism over the West, there are no enlightenments, but there is bureaucracy, drudgery, and dogmatic laws. Ward's book paints an exotic, exclusive world and fills it with complex characters and contradictory incidents. It succeeds in relating the frustrations, confusions, and, surprisingly, humor that accompanies Eastern religious training and speaks of the author's experiences honestly. Recommended for public libraries. - Glenn Masuchika, Chaminade Univ. Lib., Honolulu Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

The self-cherishing thought is like a nail or a sword in your heart; it always feels uncomfortable. With bodhicitta, from the moment you begin to open, you feel incredibly peaceful and you get tremendous pleasure and inexhaustible energy. Forget about enlightenment - as soon as you begin to open yourself to others, you gain tremendous pleasure and satisfaction. Working for others is very interesting; it's an infinite activity. Your life becomes continuously rich and interesting. "Historically, Shakyamuni Buddha taught the four noble truths. To whose culture do the four noble truths belong? The essence of religion has nothing to do with any one particular country's culture. Compassion, love, reality - to whose culture do they belong? The people of any country, any nation, can implement the three principal aspects of the path, the four noble truths or the eightfold path. There's no contradiction at all."

Common to all four traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, the practice of Vajrasattva is used to purify obstacles to spiritual development, negative karma, and illness.

Also included is an entire section of complete retreat instructions-required reading for anyone undertaking a meditation retreat in the Tibetan tradition.
