Contemporary Visions in Tibetan Studies: Proceedings of the First International Seminar of Young Tibetologists

By Brandon Dotson, Kalsang Norbu Gurung, Georgios Halkias & Tim Myatt (Eds)

Serindia Publicationns Inc., 2009. First edition. Hardcover. New. 20 x 28 cm. From the early 1980s onward, the field of Tibetan studies has been transformed by the opening of Tibet to foreign researchers. This has ushered in a new era of engagement with Tibet characterized by partnership between Tibetan scholars and their international colleagues, and by an increasing focus on the study of modern Tibet. Concomitant with this trend, the study of traditional Tibetan society and the imperative for cultural preservation has gained a newfound sense of urgency as the older generation of Tibetans, both in Tibet and in the Tibetan diaspora, began to pass away, taking their stories with them. This volume of essays, Contemporary Visions in Tibetan Studies, reflects in many ways a critical phase in the discipline of Tibetan studies. The contributions, from promising young scholars, both Tibetan and non-Tibetan from across the globe, are divided evenly between essays that engage with the various modernities of Tibet, China and the diaspora on the one hand, and more classically oriented studies of history, culture and religion on the other. Here Tibetan tradition is scrutinized from without and within, sometimes upheld and sometimes revised. Reflecting the growth of the field and its movement away from assertions of Tibetan exceptionalism and towards cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural projects, many of the essays are problem-oriented, and their enquiries take them outside of the confines of the Tibetan cultural area and towards engagement with the wider world.

Tibet: Saga of Indian Explorers (1864-1894)

By P.L. Madan

Manohar Publishers & Distributors, 2004. Hardcover. New. By the middle of the nineteenth century the English were beginning to enjoy the fruits of their colonial empire. Military strategy and the political considerations, along with pressure from their intelligentsia for the safety of their colonial empire, and of course geographical expediencies forced the English authorities in the later half of the nineteenth century to begin seriously to collect information, both geographical and of general nature, about the vast terra incognita that was there all along the land frontiers of India since the prehistoric age. These were the regions where the English could travel in those days only at the risk to their lives. Printed Pages: 158. Tibet: Saga of Indian Explorers (1864-1894)P.L. Madan9788173045677

Four-Session Guru Yoga by the Eighth Gyalwang Karmapa Mikyo Dorje: Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche`s Commentary Based on the Commentary by Karma Chakme Rinpoche

By Lama Yeshe Gyamtso (Tr.)

KTD Publications, 2012. First edition. Softcover. New. 18 x 25 cm. Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche teaches the Four-Session Guru Yoga, composed by the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje, from a commentary by Karma Chakme Rinpoche. This special edition includes the actual sadhana of Four-Session Guru Yoga by Mikyo Dorje and a CD with Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche chanting the sadhana. The Four-Session Guru Yoga that we practice, composed by the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje, was based on an earlier guru yoga found in the writings of Lama Shangtsalpa’s (Lord Gampopa’s disciple) secret teachings that were sealed by command seal. Mikyo Dorje used this as the basis for his composition. There is a commentary on this practice written by the Ninth Gyalwang Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje that is impracticably long. Chakme Rinpoche wrote his commentary because until that time there was no easily accessible commentary for doing Four-Session Guru Yoga. Chakme Rinpoche’s commentary presents the meditations and visualizations to be done at the various sections of the text. Khenpo Kathar Rinpoche’s commentary goes through Chakme Rinpoches explanation of the visualizations first, and then goes through the text word by word. Printed Pages: 87. NA

Indian Tibet Tibetan India: The Cultural Legacy of the Western Himalayas

By Peter Van Ham

Niyogi Books, 2015. First edition. Hardcover. New. 28 x 24 cm. Inspired by the first cultural expedition into the Western Himalayas by August Hermann Francke in 1909 which resulted in the region’s denomination as ‘Indian Tibet’, Peter van Ham has travelled for years in the long inaccessible Indo-Tibetan border regions after they were opened to the public in the beginning of the 1990’s. In secluded and remote high-altitude-valleys of breath-taking grandeur he documented some of the last refuges of Tibetan and early Indian culture and photographed people and the unique testimonies of their art, religion and architecture, culturally influenced by both of the region’s great neighbours—India and Tibet. With the aid of rare archival and contemporary textual and visual materials, many seen here for the first time ever, Peter van Ham draws a comprehensive picture of the fascinating history of the exploration of the present Indian border region towards Tibet. Knowledgably he describes the customs of its various inhabitants many of whom still follow their age-old traditions which at present are being stimulated and revived by the many exiled Tibetans that have found a new home in the region, thus designating it as ‘Tibetan India.’ With a message by the Dalai Lama and a preface by Michel Peissel.

Rainbow Body: The Life and Realization of a Tibetan Yogin, Togden Ugyen Tendzin

By Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

New Delhi, India: North Atlantic Books/TBI "The Rainbow Body- The Life and Realization of a Tibetan Yogin, Togden Ugyen Tendzin, presents the remarkable life story of Togden (a title meaning "endowed with realization") Ugyen Tendzin (1888-1962) who, at the end of his life, attained the "rainbow body." Described as the release of the physical body to the essence of the five elements leaving no material body after death, the rainbow body has been achieved by advanced Tibetan masters in the Dzogchen tradition. It is believed that the rainbow body is an immaterial body, invisible to the physical eye, that continues to exists, actively working for the benefit of all sentient beings. Tendzin's nephew, author and Tibetan teacher, Ch gyal Namkhai Norbu, developed the book from extensive interviews with Tendzin and information received from one of his closest disciples. Written mainly in first person, as if Tendzin himself were retelling the events of his life, the book traces his childhood struggles and the circumstances which led him to his teacher Adzom Drugpa Drodul Pawo Dorje, one of the greatest Dzogchen masters of the last century. Describing the lessons and instructions Tendzin received from his master, the book ends. Printed Pages: 160.. Softcover. New. 14 x 23 Cm.

By Gavin Kilty (Tr. & Intro.)

New Delhi, India: Wisdom Publication/TBI The Tibetan saint Tsongkhapa (1357-1419), the founder of the Dalai Lama's tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, was renowned for his vast learning, meditational achievements, influential writings on practice and philosophy, and reform of tantric religious practices. A deeply humble and religious man, he expressed himself in exquisite verse. Here, twenty-one devotional poems by Tsongkhapa are presented in both the original Tibetan and in English translation. Each verse ? dedicated to the Buddha, bodhisattvas, and lamas ? illuminates some aspect of the Buddhist path. Gavin Kilty's commentary places each prayer into context, and his careful, artful translations will appeal to anyone with a love of poetry.. Softcover. New. 15 x 23 Cm.

The Life of the Madman of U

By David M. Divalerio

New Delhi, India: Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2017. The Life of the Madman of U tells the story of Kunga Zangpo (1458-1532), a famous Tibetan Buddhist yogin of the Kangyu sect. Having grown weary of the trials of human existence, Kunga Zangpo renounced the world during his teenage years, committing himself to learning and practicing the holy Dharma as a monk. Some years later he would give up his monkhood to take on a unique tantric lifestyle that entailed dressing in human remains, wandering from place to place, and provoking other to attack him physically, among other norm-overturning behaviors. It was because of this asceticism that Kunga Zangpo came to be known as the Madman of U. David M. DiValerio translates this biography, originally written in two parts in 1494 and 1537, making accessible to a modern audience a rich depiction of religious life in fifteenth-and sixteenth-century Tibet. The book also details Kunga Zangpo's many miracles, a testament to the spiritual perfection he attained. His final thirty years were spent at his monastery of Tsimar Pel, where he dispensed teachings to his numerous disciples and followers. The Life of this remarkable and controversial figure, now available in English for the first time, provides new means for understanding the tradition of the "holy madman" (smyon pa) in Tibetan Buddhism.

My Land and My People: Memoirs of The Dalai Lama of Tibet

By Dalai Lama

New Delhi, India: Timeless Books/TBI This dignified testament by a great spiritual and temporal leader, driven into exile by Communist China, is one of the most heartbreaking documents ever published. His Holiness the fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet relates the story of his brief, tumultuous reign climaxed by the appalling humiliation and systematic murder of his people by the Chinese. A civilized, compassionate man and a sincere reformer, he writes of the simple Tibetan life into which he was born, and among whom he, as the reincarnation of his predecessor, was discovered and declared Dalai Lama according to his country's ancient customs. During and after the invasion, the Dalai Lama appealed to the United Nations, and the International Commission of Jurists undertook a detailed study of the situation. The horror uncovered by the Commission surpassed sanity and reason, and it is detailed in these pages. My Land and My People is a tragic book. Yet, it is deeply inspiring, for the whole story is told with the gentle forgiving spirit of a Buddhist monk.. Softcover. New.
