Siddhas of Ga

EPUB

A Bouquet of Utpalas: Brief accounts of the lives of siddhas of Ga whom my guru actually met or whose stories he heard from trustworthy sources, set forth here as medicine to restore faith.
Most of the holy beings whose lives are recounted here began as ordinary people like us, and were not recognized emanations of buddhas or bodhisattvas. This book clearly demonstrates that we can, through diligence, achieve the same result. Beautifully recorded by Lama Karma Drodhul, these are stories of siddhas that Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche actually knew. Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche once remarked that there is nothing like these accounts of Siddhas of Ga.

Amrita of Eloquence

A Biography of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche

PDF

Amrita of Eloquence is beautifully written by Lama Karma Drodhul (Rinpoche’s nephew and disciple), and elegantly translated by Lama Yeshe Gyamtso, with a foreword by the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, and prefaces by the Ninth Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche and the Ninth Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche. Originally composed by Lama Karma Drodhul at the request of the abbot of Thrangu Monastery, Lodroe Nyima Rinpoche, for Thrangu Monastery in East Tibet. Though it is composed in the traditional style of Tibetan spiritual biographies, it is nonetheless completely accessible to modern readers. The importance of such biographies cannot be overestimated: studying the life of one’s guru gives rise to spontaneous devotion and that leads to awakening.

Finding Genuine Practice

EPUB KINDLE PDF

The Gyalwang Karmapa has taught Geshe Langri Thangpa’s Eight Verses of Training the Mind on several occasions. Though short, this text gets to the core of Mahayana practice, and each time he teaches it, he emphasizes different themes. In this particular teaching, he stressed how we need to bring our practice to bear on the difficulties that face us in our life and our dharma practice — an issue that all practitioners must face if their practice is to be effective.

Compassion NOW!

EPUB KINDLE

Compassion NOW! exhorts us to translate compassionate feeling into positive action in the world. From a teaching given in India in 2010, the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa asserts that having compassion for oneself is a necessary starting point. From there we can expand compassion to include those beings with whom we have a close connection, and from there expand it even further to develop immeasurable compassion for all sentient beings. We accomplish this through the mahayana practice of mind training, which the Karmapa discusses here with great clarity and insight. An overview of the vajrayana method of meditation on Chenrezik, the bodhisattva of compassion, is also included.
