great resource for free modern and ancient Tibetan texts

Stuff from all the traditions- both modern masters and ancient adepts. And in an easy-to-read format.
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

Thanks for the link
The nonexistence of the transcendence of suffering
is what the protector of the world has taught as the transcendence
of suffering.
Knots tied on space
are untied by space itself.

May I never be seperated from perfect masters in all lives,
and delightfully experiencing the magnificent dharma,
completing all qualities of the stages of the paths
may I quickly attain the state of Vajradhara

Glad you guys are enjoying them, it is a great website.
Now that they are making Science a mandatory part of the geshe curriculum, those science texts should come in handy!
