Buddhahood in This Life

Post by Malcolm » Thu Jun 02, 2016 5:58 pm

Hi all,

I just wanted to let anyone who is interested know that they can order my book, Buddhahood in This Life, from Wisdom Publications at a 30% discount directly from Wisdom using this link, http://www.wisdompubs.org/book/buddhahood-life, and the discount code: BLPD16. By doing so, you will very likely receive it earlier than the official Amazon date of 12/6/16, perhaps by as much as a month.

Thanks,

M

Thanks, Malcolm!
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

Any money-back guarantee if it doesn't work as promised in title? ;)

Looking forward.

It comes out to $20.97 after the discount. I found out because I forgot to apply my discount code and then emailed the publisher directly.

You can ask Tulku Dagpa for the Lung, or any Lama who was present for the Gongpa Zangthal teachings in Poland, Virginia, or LA. Their pronunciation will be much better than mine. :-)

I strongly encourage anyone in Europe to make a connection with Tulku Dakpa. He lives in Finland and he is really an awesome guy. He is beginning a five year series on Longchenpa's Great Chariot in Finland in July.

Sounds great. Unfortunately for me Finland is 2600 kilometers away (1588 miles) and REALLY expensive (especially for an under/un-employed Greek). :smile: Plus I am organising and hosting Loppon Ogyan Tanzin in Athens in July.

Just kidding around, but it is worth it to get there somehow...
