In the early days of Vajrayana few Tibetan Lamas visited Britain, and eager students were often prepared to travel considerable distances to receive instruction. Yet some sought out a young... More > Englishman recently returned from the Himalayas. Inspired by the magic and mystery of Tibet, they were keen to discover the lived meaning. Ngak’chang Rinpoche’s teachings were simple, direct, and experiential. The four evening talks contained here deal with the themes studied by everyone exploring Buddhism in depth: the four noble truths, eightfold path, causality, compassion and refuge. This material is discussed in creative contemporary English, and presented from a perspective informed by Dzogchen. Rinpoche was first asked to teach by Gétsulma Tsültrim Zangmo, a Western nun whom Rinpoche named ’ö-Zér Nyima after she received Dzogchen transmissions from him. ’ö-Zér Nyima means Rays of the Sun and this book is dedicated to the memory of this extraordinary English woman.< Less
Tupakka: Sokeaa taluttava opas tuhoon tuomitulla polulla By Kyabjé Jigdrèl Yeshé Dorje Düd'jom Rinpoche
Paperback: $6.53

Loputtomassa ystävällisyydessään vajrayana-harjoittajia kohtaa, Kyabjé Düd’jom Rinpoche viittaa Chögyal Ratna Lingpan, Sang-gyé Lingpan,... More > Rig’dzin Go’demin, Düd’dül Dorjen, gTértön Longselin, Thugchog Dorjen, Dro’dül Lingpan ja Ma-gÇig Labdrönin gTérmoihin kertoakseen epätavallisen näyllisen historian, joka valaisee tupakan haitallista luonnetta. Tupakkaa koskevia varoituksia on paljastettu gTérmoina siitä saakka kun buddhalaisuus levisi ensimmäistä kertaa Tiibetiin, ja siksi aidoilla nyingma-harjoittajilla ei voi olla mitään tekemistä tupakan kanssa. Düd’jom Rinpochen esitys käsittelee suurten gTértöneiden gTérmoissa ilmaistua tupakan demonista aietta, ja siksi se on merkittävä erityisesti niille vajrayana-harjoittajille, jotka luottavat Padmasambhavaan ja gTérma-perinteeseen. Mutta myös muitakin buddhalaisia – ja ihmisiä ylipäänsä – pitäisi kiinnostaa se, että tämänkaltaiset varoitukset ovat olleet olemassa jo kauan ja että ne ovat aika rajuja.< Less

More > It is a coming-of-age adventure, both surreal and innocent, humorous and poignant, depicting an era when the Arts set a generation’s imagination on fire. The author’s life is a rare roulette wheel of childhood wonder and tragic debacles; a debilitating stammer and a powerful singing voice; bad luck and fierce good fortune. At 16 he’s travelled far in human experience from the midnight expedition he made to the crossroads at the age of 12.< Less

Tobak: guiden som leder de blinda längs med en falsk väg som slutar i ett stup By Kyabjé Jigdrèl Yeshé Dorje Düd’jom Rinpoche
Paperback: $6.30
Prints in 3-5 business days
I sin oändliga vänlighet gentemot varjayanautövare citerar Kyabjé Düd’jom Rinpoche från gTérmas utav Chögyal Ratna Lingpa, Sang-gyé Lingpa,... More > Rig’dzin Go’dem, Düd’dül Dorje, gTértön Longsel, Thugchog Dorje, Dro’dül Lingpa, och Ma-gÇig Labdrön, för att förklara den ickeordinära visionära historien som kastar ljus över tobakens skadliga natur. Varningar angående tobak har blivit upptäckta som gTérmas sedan den första spridningen av buddhism i Tibet och därför kan inte autentiska Nyingmautövare förknippa sig med tobak. Düd’jom Rinpoche's text avhandling behandlar demonisk avsiktlighet som den diskuteras i de stora gTértönas gTérmor och är därför främst inflytelserik för de vajrayanautövare som har tillit till Padmasambhava och gTérmatraditionen. Det borde hursomhelst vara av intresse för andra buddhister – och för folk i allmänhet – att sådana varningar har existerat så länge och att de är så starka.< Less
Tobacco: ‘the guide that leads the blind on a false path which ends in a precipice’ By Kyabjé Jigdrèl Yeshé Dorje Düd’jom Rinpoche
Paperback: $6.30
Prints in 3-5 business days
In his endless kindness to Vajrayana practitioners, Kyabjé Düd’jom Rinpoche quotes from the gTérmas of Chögyal Ratna Lingpa, Sang-gyé Lingpa, Rig’dzin... More > Go’dem, Düd’dül Dorje, gTértön Longsel, Thugchog Dorje, Dro’dül Lingpa, and Ma-gÇig Labdrön, in order to explain the non-ordinary visionary history which illuminates the deleterious nature of tobacco. Warnings concerning tobacco have been revealed as gTérmas since the first spread of Buddhism in Tibet, and therefore authentic Nyingma practitioners cannot have association with tobacco. D üd’jom Rinpoche’s treatise deals with demonic intentionality as discussed in the gTérmas of the great gTértöns, and is thus mainly influential with those Vajrayana practitioners who have confidence in Padmasambhava and the gTérma tradition. It should, however, be of interest to other Buddhists – and to people in general – that such warnings have existed for so long and that they are so vehement.< Less
Tabaco: el guía que conduce a los ciegos por un falso sendero que acaba en un precipicio By Kyabjé Jigdrèl Yeshé Dorje Düd’jom Rinpoche
Paperback: $6.29

En su infinita bondad con los practicantes de Vajrayana, Kyabjé Düd’jom Rinpoche cita los gTérmas de Chögyal Ratna Lingpa, Sang-gyé Lingpa, Rig’dzin... More > Go’dem, Düd’dül Dorje, gTértön Longsel, Thugchog Dorje, Dro’dül Lingpa, y Ma-gÇig Labdrön, para relatar la historia visionaria no ordinaria que desvela la naturaleza nociva del tabaco. Las advertencias sobre el tabaco han sido reveladas como gTérmas desde la primera propagación del Budismo en el Tíbet, por lo tanto los auténticos practicantes Nyingma no pueden estar asociados al tabaco. El tratado de Dúd´jom Rinpoche nos habla de intencionalidad demoniaca tal como está expresada en los gTérmas de los grandes gTértönes, y ejerce así su influencia principalmente en los practicantes de Vajrayana que tienen confianza en Padmasambhava y la tradición gTérma.< Less

Dans son amour sans faille pour les pratiquants du Vajrayana, Kyabjé Düd'jom Rinpoche cite les gTérmas de Chögyal Ratna Lingpa, Sang-gyé Lingpa, Rig'dzin Go’dem,... More > Düd’dül Dorje, gTértön Longsel, Thugchog Dorje, Dro’dül Lingpa, et Ma-gÇig Labdrön, afin d’expliciter l’histoire visionnaire non-ordinaire qui illumine la nature dangereuse du tabac. Depuis la première dissémination du Bouddhisme au Tibet, de nombreux gTérmas ont proscrit la consommation de tabac. Le texte de Düd’jom Rinpoche traite de l’intentionnalité démoniaque du tabac telle qu’elle est décrite dans les gTérmas des grands gTértöns, et les pratiquants du Vajrayana qui ont confiance en Padmasambhava et la tradition des gTérmas s’y fieront. Mais ce texte sera également utile pour d’autres Bouddhistes de par la véhémence et l'ancienneté qui caractérisent ces avertissements.< Less

Den Tabak betreffende Warnungen sind seit der ersten Verbreitung des Buddhismus in Tibet immer wieder als gTérmas aufgetaucht und deshalb können authentische Nyingma Praktizierende kein positives Verhältnis zum Tabak haben.< Less
