The Complete Nyingma Tradition

Choying Tobden Dorje

In 1838, Choying Tobden Dorje, a Buddhist yogi-scholar of eastern Tibet, completed a multivolume masterwork that traces the entire path of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism from beginning to end. Written by a lay practitioner for laypeople, it was intended to be accessible, informative, inspirational, and above all, practical. Its twenty-five books, or topical divisions, offer a comprehensive and detailed view of the Buddhist path according to the early translation school of Tibetan Buddhism, spanning the vast range of Buddhist teachings from the initial steps to the highest esoteric teachings of great perfection. Choying Tobden Dorje’s magnum opus appears in English here for the first time.

Tibetan Buddhist Publishing

From Our President's Desk

Asked by the Vajrayana World blog about his thoughts, he wrote this essay covering all aspects of Tibetan Buddhist publishing:

"...yet, as I survey the landscape of Buddhism in the West through the lens of Buddhist publishing in English, at times I have a lot of trepidation—as a publisher and also as a Buddhist. We have a long way to go. My concerns focus on how we read, what we read, and who is reading—or not..."

Online Courses

The Mandala Principle

In this online course, esteemed Buddhist teacher and editor Judith Lief takes us on a journey through the mandala principle teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche as presented in his Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma.

Taught by: Judith L. Lief

Discovering the Relaxed Mind

Learn a seven-step meditation practice, concisely and practically adapted from the meditation techniques of three major Buddhist traditions—Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana—which Tibetan Buddhism knits into a seamless whole.

Taught by: Dza Kilung Rinpoche

The Heart Sutra

One of the most beloved scriptures of Mahayana Buddhism, the Heart Sutra is chanted daily around the world in dozens of languages by millions of practitioners. For Zen Buddhists—and many others—the sutra expresses the nature of reality in ways both profound and paradoxical. In this online course, Kazuaki Tanahashi and Roshi Joan Halifax collaboratively explore the depths of the sutra’s teaching through talks, chanting, readings, and group discussions.

Taught by: Joan Halifax & Kazuaki Tanahashi

Mindfulness in Action

In this online course, the practice of meditation will be accompanied by practices for expanding awareness in everyday activities, dissolving the boundary between meditation and everything else we do in our life. This is a course for new meditators, for those who want to deepen their meditation practice, and for mindfulness trainers and teachers. The approach is based on the mindfulness teachings of Chögyam Trungpa, from his book Mindfulness in Action.

Taught by: Carolyn Rose Gimian

Living the Dharma

Tibetan Buddhist master Anyen Rinpoche and his teaching partner Allison Choying Zangmo share what it takes to achieve realization on the spiritual path with a practical and approachable means for bringing our practice alive and actualizing the wisdom of the Buddha in our hearts.

Taught by: Anyen Rinpoche & Allison Choying Zangmo

Glimpses of Mahamudra

Mahamudra is a meditation tradition within tantric Buddhism that points to the nature of awareness itself, elevating our ordinary perception to the level of the sacred. In this view, all experiences arise from a mind that is naturally vast, empty, and luminous.

Taught by: Judith L. Lief

Glimpses of Vajrayana

The tantric path requires complete engagement and fierce dedication. There is a quality of directness, abruptness, and wholeheartedness to it, and it is said to be the more rapid but more dangerous path.

Taught by: Judith L. Lief

The Bodhisattva Path of Wisdom and Compassion

Once the essential foundation of the hinayana teachings has been laid, the next step begins with opening the focus of practice to include the world beyond oneself. This personal paradigm shift is the gate to the mahayana teachings, beginning with shunyata, the essential emptiness of all phenomena, and with the compassion that naturally arises from that understanding.

Taught by: Judith L. Lief

Entering the Path

The hinayana path is the foundation of the Buddhist teachings. To enter the path of Buddhist practice, one must start here. Based on training in mindfulness and awareness and in cultivating a deeper understanding of one’s own mind, the hinayana is what allows us to take delight in our everyday life just as it is.

Taught by: Judith L. Lief

Making Friends with Yourself

Imagine having Pema Chödrön sitting in your living room, speaking directly to you. This course, beautifully set in the intimate environment of remote Gampo Abbey, presents Pema teaching how to step outside ourselves to see how our sense of self develops and leads us to negative patterns of thinking.

Taught by: Pema Chödrön
