The Collected Works of Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse in 3 Volumes

Postby phantom59 » Mon May 17, 2010 4:37 pm

This 3 volume set presents the collected works in English of one of the great luminaries of Tibetan Buddhism in our time, published to mark his centennial celebration. A complete exposition of the stages of the Buddhist path is presented through Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s commentaries on the root texts of classic Tibetan masters including Patrul Rinpoche, Jigme Lingpa, Shechen Gyaltsab, and Mipham Rinpoche.

Volume one begins with the inspiring story of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s life told largely in his own words and illustrated with photographs. This is followed by two texts that illuminate the instructions of the celebrated Ngulchu Thogme Zangpo on the Seven-Point Mind Training and the Thirty-seven Practices of a Bodhisattva

Volume two explores fundamental practices of Vajrayana Buddhism and teachings of both sutra and tantra. It includes a manual for the fundamental practice of ngöndro; a pithy commentary on body, speech, and mind; instructions for guru yoga, “merging with the mind of the guru”; and practical guidance on using everyday circumstances on the path to buddhahood.

Volume three expands on the inner core of the Vajrayana teachings of the development and completion stages, and contemplative retreat practice. It begins with a guide to authentic spiritual practice that combines the wisdom of three of the greatest masters of the Tibetan tradition. This is followed by a witty manual of advice for solitary retreat; discussion of the four empowerments and the three samadhis; a commentary on an important dzogchen text, “The Three Words That Strike the Vital Point”; and quintessential teachings on the ultimate nature of the mind.

Wow, that looks like an amazing set of books!
    How foolish you are,
    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!

Rest in natural great peace this exhausted mind,
Beaten helplessly by karma and neurotic thoughts
Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves
In the infinite ocean of samsara.
Rest in natural great peace.
~Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche
