EPUB PDF   Apple Books   “Google

A String of Pearls is a collection of dharma talks given by Lord Gampopa in plain-spoken, no-nonsense, and direct language. In them, Gampopa continually exhorts us to remember the qualities that will allow us to practice dharma genuinely—loving-kindness, compassion, and bodhichitta. These talks speak to issues that affect practitioners of today just as much as they did the people who gathered around Gampopa and listened to him teach some 800 years ago.

The three prayers to Buddha Amitabha by Karma Chakme and Tertön Mingyur Dorje that are recited frequently in monasteries, nunneries, and dharma centers around the world, and many practitioners also include them in their daily practice to pray either for themselves or on behalf of recently departed loved ones.

This is Jamgön Kongtrul’s well-known and probably most useful instruction on the daily practice of Severance (see A Concise Daily Practice of Offering One’s Body), written at the behest of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo. It has been translated several times, with the title rendered variously as “Grove of Delights,” “Garden of All Joy,” “Garden of Pleasures,” and so forth. It is also the basis of many oral commentaries by great contemporary masters such as Venerable Tenga Rinpoche, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, and so on. Indeed, the text is concise and yet thoroughly informative; one might almost call it user-friendly.

The Sadhana of the Vision of Lord Karma Pakshi

From the Mind Treasure of the Great Terton Mingyur Dorje
རྗེ་ཀརྨ་པཀྵི་ཞལ་གཟིགས་མའི་ལས་བྱང་༔

EPUB PDF

This practice text was composed by the great terton Mingyur Dorje, who had a vision of the Second Karmapa Karma Pakshi as the embodiment of all the gurus, yidams, dakas, dakinis and Dharma protectors — the single source of the Three Jewels and the Three Roots. Later other masters, like the Fourteenth Karmapa Tekchok Dorje or Palden Khyentse Özer, the Second Jamgön Rinpoche, added the ritual parts and supplications to create a complete sadhana used nowadays. It should be used with care and only by those who received the appropriate empowerment, transmission and instructions from a qualified lama.

A Short Guru Yoga on the Seventeenth Karmapa

With Instructions, a Supplication and It’s Commentary

EPUB 🎧 PDF

This Short Guru Yoga on the Root Lama Karmapa by the Third Kyabje Dorlop Tenga Rinpoche is a guru yoga for making your own body, speech, and mind inseparable from three vajras of body, speech and mind of the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa. The text encapsulates the meaning in a few words and is easy to practice regularly. Originally, Tenga Rinpoche asked the Gyalwang Karmapa several times to write his own short guru yoga. The Karmapa said he would look into it, but did not write one. Later, Kyabje Rinpoche himself prayed with one pointed faith and devotion and wrote this short guru yoga. He showed it to the Karmapa and asked whether it would be permissible to use it for practice, and the Karmapa gave his blessings, saying it would be permissible to use this text for practice. Tenga Rinpoche also composed a melody for it, which is included in the EPUB file.

The Short Vajradhara Prayer

A Teaching on the Lineage and Sustaining One’s Nature

EPUB KINDLE PDF

From the Preface: “The Dorje Chang Tungma is probably the most well-known of the Kagyu prayers, traditionally recited before teaching sessions and often recited by practitioners as part of their daily practice. Nearly everyone knows this prayer by heart, but such familiarity can be dangerous. It is all too easy to recite the prayer mindlessly, like a parrot, without focusing on the words or reflecting on the meaning of what we are saying. By studying it, we should gain deeper understanding and be able to appreciate its profundity more fully.”
