Ngondro for Our Current Day: A Short Ngondro Practice and its Instructions
by His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa

In this succinct teaching presented in 2006 by His Holiness the
Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa in Bodhgaya, India, students are guided
through a shortened version of the preliminaries for mahamudra practice,
which His Holiness composed with the aim of benefiting practitioners
from developed countries who often lead busy lives. The complete
practice, in "Brief Recitations," is written in English, Tibetan, and
Tibetan transliteration, and complete instructions for the Four Special
Preliminaries are provided, with the exception of guru yoga. His
Holiness guides students through the details of each practice, including
the visualizations of Refuge, Vajrasattva purification, and Mandala
offerings -- often punctuated with his good humor. A summary of the
practice sequences and a list of precepts of the refuge vow are also
included in two appendices.

Karma Chakme's Mountain Dharma Vol 4

By Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche

"Karma Chakme's Mountain Dharma is a complete text for those who

want to practice Tibetan Buddhism. Whether you are in an intensive retreat

where you practice most of the time or in a busy life where you practice as

much as you can, the issues are the same, the practices are the same, and the

postmeditation is the same. Mountain Dharma contains everything you need

to undertake any practice, from the most basic to the tantrayana, including

how to conduct a proper retreat. Because this text is very precise and very

clear, you do not have to obtain sixty different volumes of texts. If you

become well acquainted with this text, you have everything you need to

achieve enlightenment."

Volume Four explores the conduct and lifestyle that create an appropriate

framework for Dharma—how to relate to the sangha; incorporating insights

on how to benefit others through the traditions of scholarship and

realization. and includes a comprehensive exploration of the phenomenon of

death. We are offered a chapter on Balaha, a horse known to be the

emanation of the bodhisattva Chenrezik and a practice method that

corresponds to Balaha's heroism.
