Five Buddha Families and The Eight Consciousnesses, by Thrangu Rinpoche
Five Buddha Families and The Eight Consciousnesses, by Thrangu Rinpoche
Our Price: $7.00

Thrangu Rinpoche has often taught the transformation of our confused mind which is full of delusion and defilements into an enlightened mind. He describes the confused mind in terms of the eight consciousnesses which are the five sensory consciousnesses, the mental consciousness, the afflicted consciousness which gives us our sense of "I" and "me," and finally the alaya or storehouse consciousness.

These eight consciousnesses are described and then Rinpoche explains how these are transformed into the five wisdoms of the five Buddha families upon reaching enlightenment.

Included are drawings of the five buddhas along with the characteristics of each including their related directions, abode, mudra, skandha, klesha, chakra, and color.

Lady of Realization by Sheila Fugard
Lady of Realization by Sheila Fugard
Our Price: $8.99

Sister Palmo's life as an Englishwoman in India was extraordinary both as an academic, political activist, and social worker. She is remembered as one of the key figures in bringing the sixteenth Karmapa to the West. She influenced younger important teachers like Trungpa Rinpoche and Akong Rinpoche. It was my privilege to have been her student, and to study and travel with her. This memoir is a reflection of that extraordinary time of the arrival of Tibetan Buddhism in the West in the 1970s. The memoir brings with it deep, personal experiences from my own life, lived out during the brutal years of the apartheid government in South Africa. The life and work of Sister Palmo continues to inspire others on the path. She brought the ancient yogic tradition of the woman yogis of the past together with insights into contemporary life. Her invaluable teachings open a door into the practice of Buddhism in our everyday journey. more info
