    The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa

    A New Translation

    • by
    • Tsangnyon Heruka
    Powerful and deeply inspiring, there is no book more beloved by Tibetans than The Hundred Thousand Songs, and no figure more revered than Milarepa, the great eleventh-century poet and saint. An ordinary man who, through sheer force of effort, faith, and perseverance, overcame nearly insurmountable obstacles on the spiritual path to achieve enlightenment in a single lifetime, he stands as an exemplar of what it is to lead a spiritual… Read More

    The Life and Visions of Yeshe Tsogyal

    The Autobiography of the Great Wisdom Queen

    • by
    • Drime Kunga
    This secret life story of Yeshé Tsogyal presents a valuable and unique perspective that is quite a departure from any other account of this remarkable woman. Described as a “secret life story,” its many layers include an outer account—detailing her birth, family, and societal constraints—an inner account that begins as she meets and escapes captivity with Guru Rinpoché, and a secret account as she enters twelve years of retreat at… Read More

    The Revolutionary Life of Freda Bedi

    British Feminist, Indian Nationalist, Buddhist Nun

    • by
    • Vicki Mackenzie
    She was the first Western woman to become a Tibetan Buddhist nun—but that pioneering ordination was really just one in a life full of revolutionary acts. Freda Bedi (1911–1977) broke the rules of gender, race, and religion—in many cases before it was thought that the rules were ready to be challenged. She was at various times a force in the struggle for Indian independence, spiritual seeker, scholar, professor, journalist, author,… Read More

  5. Milarepa

    Milarepa

    Lessons from the Life and Songs of Tibet’s Great Yogi

    • by
    • Chogyam Trungpa
    • edited by
    • Judith L. Lief
    He went from being the worst kind of malevolent sorcerer to a devoted and ascetic Buddhist practitioner to a completely enlightened being all in a single lifetime. The story of Milarepa (1040–1123) is a tale of such extreme and powerful transformation that it might be thought not to have much direct application to our own less dramatic lives—but Chögyam Trungpa shows otherwise. This collection of his teachings on the life… Read More

    Discovering a Lost Tradition

    • by
    • Sam van Schaik

Then the discovery of a sealed cave in Dunhuang, full of manuscripts in various languages dating from the first millennium CE, transformed our understanding of early Zen. This book translates some of the earliest surviving Tibetan Zen manuscripts preserved in Dunhuang. The translations illuminate different aspects of the Zen tradition, with… Read More
