In the Mirror of Memory
In the Mirror of Memory (October 1992)
Reflections on Mindfulness and Remembrance in Indian and Tibetan Buddhism
Janet Gyatso - Editor

“Gyatso has put together a collection written by some of the indisputably top-ranking people in the field. All the contributors are internationally recognized scholars, and the level of their essays is uniformly very high: scholarly, erudite, but above all pioneering, fresh, original. The collection is thought-provoking and challenging, yet deeply responsible and responsive to the tradition of textual interpretation. It is very interesting, g...(Read More)

The Sovereign All-Creating Mind - The Motherly Buddha (September 1992)
A Translation of the Kun byed rgyal po'i mdo
E. K. Neumaier-Dargyay - Author

What distinguishes this Buddhist text from so many others is the timelessness of its ideas. It constitutes a radical attempt toward deconstructing Buddhist philosophy, and presents a feminist perspective on Buddhist spirituality. The text holds that being is the center and depth of existence, and is therefore accessible in everyday experience. The fleeting existence (samsara) is in its depth being, i.e. a state of complete integratio...(Read More)

Steven D. Goodman - Editor
Ronald M. Davidson - Editor

"Contains some of the best work that has been done in Tibetan studies in the past decade." -- Lewis Lancaster

This volume consists of eight studies, each one bringing to light new material of use to comparative religionists and historians of religion, as well as to students of Tibetan Buddhism.

Ethics of Tibet (September 1991)
Bodhisattva Section of Tsong-Kha-Pa's Lam Rim Chen Mo
Alex Wayman - Translator

"One of the leading Tibetan scholars in the world has translated this work by the great Tsong-kha-pa, the titular head of the Ge-lug-pa Sect and perhaps the Tibetan equivalent of the great Nagarjuna. This first complete English translation also reveals the encyclopedic mind of Tsong-kha-pa, whose copious references to the sutras are a gold mine. He, more than anyone else, shaped the development of Tibetan Buddhism as we know of it today.

"T...(Read More)

Mipam: The Lama of the Five Wisdoms (January 1987)
A Tibetan Novel by Lama Yongden
Lama Yongden - Author
Percy Lloyd - Author

This story, drawn from old Tibetan folk tales, has the psychological depth of a western novel. It is a love story woven around the search for the missing reincarnation of a great Lama. Along the way we glimpse a people whose spirituality is as exalted as the Himalayas. There is humor as well, when the hero encounters a bewildering group of Christian missionaries. In the depiction of Chinese culture, and the Chinese merchants of Tibet, there is a for...(Read More)
