Guhyasamaja Practice in the Arya Nagarjuna Syst...
40,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Complete instructions on how to practice the generation stage of Guhyasamaja from a contemporary Tibetan Buddhist master, with a new English translation of the self-generation ritual. The Guhyasamaja Tantra is one of the Unexcelled Yoga Tantras of Vajrayana Buddhism. In the initial, generation-stage practice, one engages in a prescribed sequence of visualizations of oneself as an enlightened being in a purified environment in order to prepare one´s mind and body to engage in the second stage: the completion stage. The latter works directly with the subtle energies of one´s mind and body and transforms them into the enlightened mind and body of a buddha. In this book, Gyumé Khensur Lobsang Jampa, a former abbot of Gyumé Tantric College, provides complete instructions on how to practice the generation stage of Guhyasamaja, explaining the visualizations, offerings, and mantras involved, what they symbolize, and the purpose they serve. These instructions, which are usually imparted only orally from master to student after the student has been initiated into the Guhyasamaja mandala, are now being published in English for the first time and are supplemented by extracts from key written commentaries in the footnotes to support practitioners who have received the required transmissions from a holder of this lineage. The complete self-generation ritual is included in the second part of the book, with the Tibetan on facing pages, which can be used by those who read Tibetan and want to recite the ritual in Tibetan.

Tsongkhapa: A Buddha in the Land of Snows
24,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The new standard work and definitive biography of Tsongkhapa, one of the principle founders of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism--the school of the Dalai Lamas. In this groundbreaking addition to the Lives of the Masters series, Thupten Jinpa, a scholar-practitioner and long-time translator for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, offers the most comprehensive portrait available of Jé Tsongkhapa (1357-1419), one of the greatest Buddhist teachers in history. A devout monastic, Tsongkhapa took on the difficult task of locating and studying all of the Indian Buddhist classics available in Tibet in his day. He went on to synthesize this knowledge into a holistic approach to the path of awakening. In an achievement of incredible magnitude, he integrated the pivotal yet disparate Mahayana teachings on emptiness while retaining the important role of critical reason and avoiding the extreme of negating the reality of the everyday world. Included in this volume is a discussion of Tsongkhapa´s early life and training; his emergence as a precociously intelligent Buddhist mind; the composition of his Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, Great Exposition of Tantra, and many other important works; and his founding of the Lhasa Prayer Festival and Ganden Monastery. This is a necessary resource for anyone interested in Tsongkhapa´s transformative effect on the understanding and practice of Buddhism in Tibet in his time and his continued influence today.

Tantric Sex and Menopause (eBook, ePUB)
11,65 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A tantric guide to discovering the hidden gifts of menopause • Explains why Tantra works for menopausal women and how their bodies are naturally entering a more tantric phase focused on creative, spiritual energy • Details tantric practices and tools to connect with the body´s inner intuitive wisdom, remove the ´´performance pressure´´ of conventional sex, and set the stage for passion and pleasure to thrive both in the bedroom and beyond • Explores what to expect physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and in relationships As women, we live so closely to the body--through menstruation, pregnancy, birthing, motherhood, and then menopause. Each of these transitions changes a woman in a multitude of ways, most of which are celebrated. Yet menopause often causes women to feel despondent, as if our bodies are broken or deficient, especially when it comes to sex and intimacy. However, as tantric teachers Diana Richardson and Janet McGeever show, menopause has many hidden gifts to offer if we learn to embrace rather than suppress the changes this natural transition brings. Shining the light of tantric intelligence on menopause, the authors reveal how to explore and experience menopause in a radically positive fashion, suffused with a sense of vital awakening and ´´re-wilding´´ of a woman´s sexuality, creativity, and spirituality. Explaining what to expect physically, emotionally, and spiritually, as well as what it means for relationships, they detail tantric practices and tools to connect with the body´s inner intuitive wisdom and heart energies, remove the ´´performance pressure´´ of conventional sex, and set the stage for passion and pleasure to thrive both in the bedroom and beyond. They explain why Tantra works for menopausal women and how their bodies are naturally entering a more tantric phase focused on creative, spiritual energy. They explore how, in Tantra, sex is practiced not for the sake of sex itself but as an instrument for going ´´beyond´´ sex, for better health, improved relationships, enhanced self-control and emotional balance, and even higher states of consciousness. They also offer many self-help practices, exercises, and meditations to reinforce a positive attitude toward menopause and overcome many of the physical and sexual problems, such as pain, dryness, loss of interest, and loss of libido. Providing a guide for women who are approaching, experiencing, or have gone through menopause, the authors show how a more informed, tantric approach to menopause allows each woman to deepen her trust in the perfect functioning of the female body, embrace her natural sexual response, and reconnect with her inner self.

Liberation: The Fruition of Yoga (AYP Enlighten...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This concise volume provides a survey of the methods of Yoga as they relate to the rise of the non-dual condition of enlightenment, or ´´Liberation´´ (´´Moksha´´ in Sanskrit), and practices that can be utilized during the end stage of the journey. It is about the rise of the witness and the evolution to ripeness and relational self-inquiry for permanent realization of the observer being both beyond and in unity with all objects of perception, accompanied by the natural emergence of an unending flow of divine love in the world. While this book is about Advaita-Vedanta and Jnana Yoga for end stage realization, it is also about assuring that the prerequisites of Deep Meditation and related yogic methods are not ignored, as so often happens in modern teachings on enlightenment. Liberation is the cap-stone of the AYP Enlightenment Series, the ´´vedanta´´ of it so to speak, meaning, ´´the end of knowledge.´´ It is also an expansion on the discussion that began in the seventh book of the series: ´´Self-Inquiry.´´ As has always been said throughout the AYP Enlightenment Series, the center of all spiritual progress is found within each human being, and that theme culminates here. Liberation is in your hands. ´´Liberation´´ is the eleventh book in the Enlightenment Series, preceded by Retreats, Eight Limbs of Yoga, Bhakti and Karma Yoga, Self-Inquiry, Diet, Shatkarmas and Amaroli, Samyama, Asanas, Mudras and Bandhas, Tantra, Spinal Breathing Pranayama, and Deep Meditation. Yogani is also the author of two highly-regarded user-friendly textbooks providing detailed instructions on full-scope yoga practices, Advanced Yoga Practice - Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living, Volumes 1 & 2, and a spiritual adventure novel, The Secrets of Wilder - A Story of Inner Silence, Ecstasy and Enlightenment. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section 1. Language: English. Narrator: Yogani.
