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

In seiner unendlichen Freundlichkeit zu den Vajrayana Praktizierenden zitiert Kyabjé Düd’jom Rinpoche Texte aus den gTérmas von Chögyal Ratna Lingpa, Sang-gyé... More > Lingpa, Rig’dzin Go’dem, Düd’dül Dorje, gTértön Longsel, Thugchog Dorje, Dro’dül Lingpa und Ma-gCig Labdrön, um die nicht-gewöhnliche visionäre Geschichte zu erklären, welche ein Licht auf die schädliche Natur des Tabaks wirft. 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

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
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

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

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

More > nye) enables one to enter the dimension of energy revealed through Dzogchen longdé, the series of space. 35 elemental exercises cover 7 dynamic movements from each series of symbolic animals: lion, vulture, tiger, eagle, and garuda. Aro sKu-mNyé can be practised by almost anyone as the forms range from simple to challenging, from mild to strongly aerobic. The theoretical background to the exercises is explained in simple contemporary English, which is accessible to those with no experience of Vajrayana Buddhism, yet will be of value and interest to those who have practised intensively and studied the tradition in depth. The exercises are finely illustrated by Pauline Williams in a western life-drawing style that portrays real-life practitioners rather than perfect iconographic bodies of yogis and yoginis.< Less
