    • Orgyen Tobgyal
    Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö (1893–1959), the previous incarnation of Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, was an essential bridge between the ecumenical Rime masters of the nineteenth century (Ju Mipham, Patrul Rinpoche, Chogyur Lingpa, Jamgön Kongtrul) and the lamas of today (Dilgo Khyentse, Tulku Thondup, Sogyal Rinpoche, and so many others). The staggeringly long lists of all the teachings he received and passed on testify to his abiding appreciation for all aspects of… Read More

  5. The Heart of Meditation

    The Heart of Meditation

    Discovering Innermost Awareness

    • by
    • H.H. the Fourteenth Dalai Lama,
    • Jeffrey Hopkins
    The heart of meditation—the thing that brings it alive—is compassion. This is not an ordinary compassion but one that is developed and expanded in parallel with wisdom that arises through meditation. Without that essential foundation, other practices are pointless. Fortunately, the mind can be trained in compassion, and the mind thus trained is fertile ground for the practice of the Great Completeness (Dzogchen), which is considered the pinnacle of spiritual… Read More

  7. The Revolutionary Life of Freda Bedi

    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

  8. 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

    Adorning Maitreya’s Intent

    Arriving at the View of Nonduality

    • by
    • Rongtonpa
    According to tradition, Distinguishing the Middle from the Extremes (Madhyāntavibhāga) was revealed by Maitreya to Asaṅga, and the radical view it presents forever changed the way Mahayana Buddhists perceive reality. Here, the Tibetan master Rongtön unpacks this manual and its practices for us in a way that is at once accessible and profound, with actual practical meditative applications. The work explains the vast paths of the three vehicles of Buddhism,… Read More

    Entering the Way of the Great Vehicle

    Dzogchen as the Culmination of the Mahāyanā

    • by
    • Rongzom Chokyi Zangpo
    Rongzom Chökyi Zangpo wrote this treatise in the eleventh century during the renaissance of Buddhism in Tibet that was spurred by the influx of new translations of Indian Buddhist texts, tantras, and esoteric transmissions from India. For political and religious reasons, adherents of the “new schools” of Tibetan Buddhism fostered by these new translations cast the older tradition of lineages and transmissions as impure and decadent. Rongzompa composed the work… Read More
