From: William Magee
Subject: NEW BOOK> UMA's first Go-mang Project publication

The UMA Institute for Tibetan Studies announces the on-line publication of *The Hidden Teaching of the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras: Jam-yang-shay-pa's Seventy Topics and Kon-chog-jig-may-wang-po's Supplement,* by Jeffrey Hopkins and Jongbok Yi, edited by Elizabeth Napper. This 770 page book is available for free download (in PDF and DOCX versions) from UMA Institute's website http://uma-tibet.org/edu/gomang/phar_ph ... oad_70.php

The book contains:

• the first translation of Jam-yang-shay-pa's *Eloquent Presentation of the Eight Categories and Seventy Topics: Sacred Word of Guru Ajita*
• the first translation of Ngag-wang-pal-dan’s commentary on the 203 stanzas that Jam-yang-shay-pa cites from the 274 stanzas of Maitreya's *Ornament for the Clear Realizations*
• the Tibetan texts of the above two items interspersed with the translations
• the first translation of Kön-chog-jig-may-wang-po’s *Thorough Expression of the Natures of the One Hundred Seventy-Three Aspects of the Three Exalted Knowers: White Lotus Vine of Eloquence*
* annotations drawn from eight Tibetan and Mongolian authors representing several Ge-lug-pa monasteries and colleges
• oral commentary from Dan-ma-lo-cho, Abbot Emeritus of Nam-gyal College
• annotations comparing editions of Jam-yang-shay-pa’s text (a separate critical edition will be available for free download)
• a Mind Map Presentation of the Eight Categories and Seventy Topics and further subdivisions.

This publication is the first in a series of translations by the UMA Institute of textbooks of the Go-mang College.

The UMA Institute for Tibetan Studies is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization concentrating on translation of texts from Tibetan Buddhist traditions; conducting seminars, classes, and retreats on focal topics of Tibetan Buddhism and instruction in the literary and colloquial aspects of the Tibetan language; and maintaining and developing multimedia archives as research and instructional resources accessible across the Worldwide Web.
