Nagrim translations

Post by Nicholas Weeks » Fri Nov 03, 2017 4:09 pm

The first four chapters of Je Rinpoche's Stages of Mantra came out quickly in 1987. Then nothing in English until 2013 when chapters 11 and 12 came out. So two questions:
1) Is any group working on completing the translation of the remaining seven or so chapters?

2) Will anyone supply a short summary of the untranslated chapters?

There was a new translation released this year of all the volumes, https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1611803594.

Nope, that is just the old 1987 chapter one, re-titled and slightly revised. Same with the other two by Hopkins which covered the first four chapters.

Oh sorry Nicholas, I'm not aware of any then.

Thanks for paying attention and trying L.C. :thanks:

That complete text is probably too deep for nearly everyone in the West. But perhaps some Tibetan reader will pop up to answer this:
Will anyone supply a short summary of the untranslated chapters?
Which are 5-10 & 13 - I think.

I heard somewhere that the FPMT Masters program has a full translation for internal use only. It may be better this way, since easy access in Chinese has lead to many people misunderstanding and slandering tantra.
