Madhyamaka is a potent and universally accessible means of calming our suffering and awakening to our innate wisdom. The Center of the Sunlit Sky artfully rescues this brilliant teaching from its unwarranted reputation for intellectual opacity and reinstates it as a supremely practical tool kit for everyday living. The aim of this book is to take Madhyamaka out of the purely intellectual corner into which it--unjustly--gets boxed. It is an attempt to show how Madhayamaka actually addresses and works with all of our experiences in life.

The book follows the original Indian sources as well as the standard commentaries on Madhyamaka in the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. At the same time, these materials are adapted for a contemporary audience, combining the familiar sharpness of Madhyamaka reasonings (launching a massive assault on our cherished belief systems) with exploring the practical relevance of the Madhyamaka way of mind training.

In Praise of Dharmadhatu, translated by Karl Brunnholzl
Our Price: $29.05
Nagarjuna is famous in the West for his works not only on Madhyamaka but his poetic collection of praises, headed by In Praise of Dharmadhatu. This book explores the scope, contents, and significance of Nagarjuna's scriptural legacy in India and Tibet, focusing primarily on the title work. The translation of Nagarjuna's hymn to Buddha nature—here called dharmadhatu—shows how buddha nature is temporarily obscured by adventitious stains in ordinary sentient beings gradually uncovered through the path of bodhisattvas and finally revealed in full bloom as buddhahood. These themes are explored at a deeper level through a Buddhist history of mind's luminous nature and a translation of the text's earliest and most extensive commentary by the Third Karmapa Rangjung Dorje (1284–1339), supplemented by relevant excerpts from all other available commentaries. The book also provides an overview of the Third Karmapa's basic outlook, based on seven of his major texts. He is widely renowned as one of the major proponents of the shentong (other-empty) view. However, as this book demonstrates, this often problematic and misunderstood label needs to be replaced by a more nuanced approach which acknowledges the Karmapa's very finely tuned synthesis of the two great traditions of Indian mahayana Buddhism, Madhyamaka and Yogacara. These two, his distinct positions on Buddha nature, and the transformation of consciousness into enlightened wisdom also serve as the fundamental view for the entire vajrayana as it is understood and practiced in the Kagyu tradition to the present day.
Distinguishing Consciousness from Wisdom with Karl Brunnholzl, MP3
Our Price: $35.00
The Author of "The Center of the Sunlit Sky" and a trained physician, Dr. Karl Brunnhölzl will teach on "Distinguishing Consciousness from Wisdom".

The Third Karmapa, one of the major founders of the Shentong tradition of Mahayana Buddhism, wrote Distinguishing Consciousness from Wisdom, which consists of 36 verses detailing the entire development of how mind works for both ordinary and enlightened persons. The text explains the characteristics of the eight consciousness and how they interact with one another to create thought. It is these consciousnesses that lead one away from the path to enlightenment and make us come to believe that outer appearances are real, solid, and enduring, thus leading to the disturbing emotions. Subjects included in Distinguishing Consciousness from Wisdom: the eight consciousnesses, how the alaya consciousness is responsible for creating the world we live in, and how the eight consciousnesses are transformed into the five wisdoms upon attaining enlightenment.
