Tibetan Buddhism

  1. Secret of the Vajra World

    Enter into the colourful world of tantric Buddhism, with its unique visualizations, liturgies, initiations, and "inner yoga" as practiced in Tibet and conveyed by Tibetan masters teaching in the West. Using non technical language, engaging stories, and personal anecdotes, Reginald Ray demonstrates how the practice of tantra opens up an appreciation for ordinary life - the world of sensory experience, of pleasure and pain - as the place where ultimate revelation occurs.

  2. Buddha Nature

    All sentient beings, without exception have buddha nature, the inherent purity and perfection of the mind, untouched by changing mental states. Thus there is neither any reason for conceit in deeming oneself better than others, nor any reason for self-contempt, thinking of oneself as inferior and unable to reach enlightenment. This seeing is obscured by veils which are removable and do not touch the inherent purity and perfection of the nature of the mind as such.

  3. Nagarjuna's Precious Garland

    Nagarjuna is renowned for his penetrating analysis of reality. In the Precious Garland, he offers intimate counsel on how to conduct one's life and how to construct social policies that reflect Buddhist ideals. The advice for personal happiness is concerned first with improving one's condition over the course of lifetimes and then with release from all kinds of suffering, culminating in Buddhahood.
