5 Chogyam, Ngakpa SPECTRUM OF ECSTASY: EMBRACING THE FIVE WISDOM EMOTIONS OF VAJRAYANA BUDDHI SM
Shambhala 2003 1590300610 / 9781590300619 Paperback As New 
Here two Western-born lamas of the Nyingma tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism explore what it means to be utterly emotionally alive. Written in contempor ary, nonacademic language, this book is a radical challenge to the misconce ption that inner Vajrayana is primarily an esoteric system of ritual and li turgy. The authors teach that emotions can be embraced as a rich and profou nd opportunity for realization. This fiercely compassionate battle cry rall ies all who are audacious enough to appreciate emotions for their supreme p otential as vehicles for awakening.

AWAKENING TO THE SACRED, Das, Lama Surya
7 Das, Lama Surya AWAKENING TO THE SACRED
Broadway 1999 0767902742 / 9780767902748 First Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A crisp clean first edition (as stated) no markings throughout, not an ex-l ib edition: Surya Das is like a Buddhist Johnny Appleseed, galavanting across the countryside, planting seeds of spirituality in bare patches of ground. He believes that we are all fertile soil for cultivating the sacred in everyday life. "We all have spiritual DNA," he says. In Awakening to the Sacred, Surya Das heightens his efforts to increase the planet's spirituality quotient by teaching people how to take advantage of their own spiritual resources. Whether Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, or atheist, we can all enhance our spiritual side. Certainly meditating is a good way, and there's no one better to teach us than this limpid lama. But even more familiar activities can help, like praying, creating a spiritual notebook, or reading spiritual books--even gardening and walking count. Surya Das excels at demystifying the mystical and urges the reader to capitalize on resources closest at hand. No need to look too far when we can draw inspiration and practices from our own traditions. So take that apple seed, thumb through Awakening to the Sacred, and nourish those precious roots of spirituality.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Although Tibetan Buddhism continues to grow in popularity, the crucial relationship between teacher and student remains largely misunderstood. Dangerous Friend offers an in-depth exploration of this mysterious and complex bond, a relationship of paramount importance in Tibetan Buddhist practice. According to Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the student must have complete trust in the teacher (the dangerous friend) if he or she is to achieve any understanding. It is the teacher's responsibility to uphold the integrity of the tradition, the basis of which is compassion for all beings, by transmitting it properly to an appropriate student. Likewise, it is the student's responsibility to meet the challenge of carrying on the lineage of teachings. By entering such a relationship, both teacher and student accept the burden of protecting those teachings by understanding them completely and correctly, by practicing them fully and faultlessly, and by transmitting them without omission. Dangerous Friend includes discussions of the following topics: Meeting and recognizing an appropriate teacher. Understanding the gravity of entering the teacher-student relationship. Shifting one's approach from spiritual materialism to genuine Buddhist practice. Accepting the challenge of being truly kind, honest, and courageous.

TRACKING BODHIDHARMA: A JOURNEY TO THE HEART OF CHINESE CULTURE, Ferguson, Andy
12 Ferguson, Andy TRACKING BODHIDHARMA: A JOURNEY TO THE HEART OF CHINESE CULTURE
Counterpoint Press 2013 1619021595 / 9781619021594 Paperback Very Good 
In excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlig hting. The spine remains undamaged. The life of Bodhidharma, the founder of Zen Buddhism, has, with the passing of time, been magnified to the scale of myth, turning history into the stu ff of legend. Known as the First Patriarch, Bodhidharma brought Zen from So uth India into China in 500 CE, changing the country forever. In Tracking B odhidharma, Andrew Ferguson recreates the path of Bodhidharma, traveling th rough China to the places where the First Patriarch lived and taught. This sacred trail takes Ferguson deep into ancient China, and allows him to expl ore the origins of Chan [Zen] Buddhism, the cultural aftermath that Bodhidh arma left in his wake, and the stories of a man who shaped a civilization. Tracking Bodhidharma offers a previously unheard perspective on the life of Zen's most important religious leader, while simultaneously showing how that history is relevant to the rapidly developing super-power that is present-day China. By placing Zen Buddhism within the country's political landscape, Ferguson presents the religion as a counterpoint to other Buddhist sects, a catalyst for some of the most revolutionary moments in China's history, and as the ancient spiritual core of a country that is every day becoming more an emblem of the modern era.
