Dear Friends,

Now available:

The Aspiration of Kuntu Zangpo

By Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa

278 pages. US$24.95

The aspiration of Kuntu Zangpo, the prayer of the Primordial Buddha, is one of the deepest and most profound Buddhist texts. It is also a prayer of aspiration on the path of awakening to the true nature of reality. It expresses the different forms in which primordial awareness appears and helps us to understand that it is only our clouded understanding that makes things appear as other than they really are.

Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa's line-by-line teaching is based on the commentary by the 15th Gyalwa Karmapa.

"The prayer is such that by hearing it, by understanding it, there is no way and no possibility for you not to get enlightened."  The 15th Gyalwa Karmapa

Rechungpa, A Biography of Milarepa's Disciple

By Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

Foreword by His Holiness 17th Gyalwa Karmapa

117 pages. US$14.50

Milarepa, Tibet's greatest saint, had two major disciples: Gampopa, who established the monastic foundation of the Kagyu lineage, and Rechungpa, who traveled to India and brought back profound teachings which were absorbed into several lineages. Rechungpa's biography stands out because of the unorthodox unfolding of his realization. His pride and arrogance caused him to go against Milarepa's advice three times, putting his practice at risk. Even with this obstacle, Rechungpa's undying devotion to Milarepa served as the cause for his enlightenment as evidenced by Rechungpa's achievement of rainbow body at his death.

Monthly Dharma Teaching # 24 from Palpung Publications

Palpung Publications Banner

The Essential Teachings of the Buddhadharma
the 3rd Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche

During this lecture I wish to discuss the view, meditation and action in the Buddhist tradition in general.

The Buddhist teachings are very vast and profound. In order to be able to integrate the teachings properly, one must proceed by learning the view, by meditating on the instructions and by acting accordingly, all three aspects must be present.

There are 84,000 general teachings of the Buddha. All teachings are directed towards becoming free from the three mind poisons of ignorance, attachment and aversion. As such, there are what is known as the three baskets of teachings showing how to become free of these poisons. These three baskets of teachings are presented in the three vehicles of learning: discipline, meditation and wisdom. These three are employed in order to develop the three wisdoms won from hearing, from contemplating and from meditating, and to engender the correct view, meditation and action. The three vehicles of learning are explained in the three baskets of teachings, summarized in the two truths: the relative and ultimate truths.
