Buddhist Yoga, translated by Thomas Cleary
Buddhist Yoga, translated by Thomas Cleary
Our Price: $18.95

The word yoga has many meanings, including "meditation," "method," and "union." While the physical exercises of Hindu yoga are familiar to Westerners, the subtle metaphysics and refined methods of spiritual development that characterize Buddhist yoga are not yet well known. This volume presents a landmark translation of a classical sourcebook of Buddhist yoga, the Sandhinirmochana-sutra, or "Scripture Unlocking the Mysteries," a revered text of the school of Buddhism known as Vijnanavada or Yogachara. The study of this scripture is essential preparation for anyone undertaking meditation exercise. Linking theory and praxis, the scripture offers a remarkably detailed and thorough course of study in both the philosophical and pragmatic foundation of Buddhist yoga, and their perfect, harmonious union in the realization of Buddhist enlightenment.

Tibetan Yogas of Body, Speech, and Mind, by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
Our Price: $18.95

Understanding how our actions words and thoughts interact enhances our ability to progress in spiritual practice and brings us closer to self-realization. In a warm informal style Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche opens up Tibetan meditation practice to both beginners and experienced students placing as much emphasis on practice as on knowledge. Depending on the sources of the problems in our lives he offers practices that work with the body speech or the mind—a collection of Tibetan yoga exercises visualizations, sacred sound practices, and spacious meditations on the nature of mind. Together he says knowledge and regular meditation practice can alter our self-image and lead to a lighter more joyful sense of being. The stillness of the body the silence of speech and the spacious awareness of mind are the true three doors to enlightenment.
