Large Nyingma Collection (New Link)

CLICK IN THE DOUBLE DORJE TO SEE THE NYINGMA FOLDER!

The Nyingma tradition is the oldest of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism (the other three being the Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug). "Nyingma" literally means "ancient," and is often referred to as Nga'gyur (Tibetan: སྔ་འགྱུར།, Wylie: snga 'gyur, ZYPY: Nga'gyur, school of the ancient translations) or the "old school" because it is founded on the first translations of Buddhist scriptures from Sanskrit into Tibetan, in the eighth century. The Tibetan script and grammar was actually created for this endeavour. In modern times the Nyingma lineage has been centered in Kham in eastern Tibet.

Lama Dampa Sönam Gyaltsen - Treasury of Esoteric Instructions

CLICK IN THE COVER TO DOWNLOAD THE PDF (NEW LINK)!

Treasury of Esoteric Instructions: An Explication of the Oral Instructions of the Path with the Result by Lama Dampa Sönam Gyaltsen, translated and edited by Cyrus Stearns.

The Lamdré, or the Path with the Result, is the most important system of tantric practice in the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The goddess Vajra Nairatmya first transmitted these teachings to the Indian adept Virupa (ca. seventh-eighth centuries), who then composed the Vajra Lines. Virupa’s words were transmitted orally until the Tibetan master Sachen Kunga Nyingpo (1092-1158) wrote eleven commentaries to explain them. Two hundred years later, in 1342, Lama Dampa Sönam Gyaltsen (1312-75) composed the Treasury of Esoteric Instructions, the culminating commentary on Virupa’s work.

According to His Holiness Sakya Trizin, “There have been many treatises of commentary on the intention of the Vajra Lines. However, this Treasury of Esoteric Instructions, the commentary composed by the sovereign of the doctrine Lama Dampa Sönam Gyaltsen Palsangpo of the Khön family, has many special qualities, and is clearer and more easily understood than others, suitably elaborate, and precise in drawing out the key points.”

This book contains translations of Virupa’s Vajra Lines and Lama Dampa’s Treasury of Esoteric Instructions. Issued as a separate booklet is a translation of Pleasure Grove for the Intelligent, a structural commentary on the Vajra Lines written by Jamgön Ameshap Ngawang Kunga Sönam (1597-1659), the twenty-eighth throne holder of Sakya.

Virupa (ca. seventh-eighth centuries)was one of the legendary eighty-four great adepts of tantric Buddhism in ancient India. His instructions known as Lamdré, or the Path with the Result, have been the specialty of the Sakya tradition in Tibet for almost nine hundred years.

Lama Dampa Sönam Gyaltsen (1312-75) was the fifteenth throne holder of the Sakya tradition in Tibet. He was a great yogin and scholar who became the teacher of prominent Buddhist masters of all traditions. Lama Dampa spent years in solitary meditation retreat, but also composed many exceptional literary works.

Cyrus Stearns began studying and practicing Buddhism in 1973. He is the author/translator of two previous books about the Lamdré tradition: Luminous Lives and Taking the Result As the Path. He is a fellow at the Tsadra Foundation and lives in the woods on Whidbey Island, north of Seattle, Washington.

Tsele Natsok Rangdrol - The Circle fo the Sun (Scanned Version)

CLICK IN THE COVER TO DOWNLOAD THE PDF!

This is the scanned version of the same file already posted in this blog in OCR format.

There is a teaching which, if you are able to practice it intelligently and diligently, is a shortcut to enlightenment within this very body and lifetime, a magical staircase, a secret pathway, the quintessence of all the sutras, tantras and oral instructions, the ultimate view, meditation and action, the vital point of the ground, path and fruition and the victorious summit of all the vehicles. It is Trekcho and Thogal, the instructions of atiyoga.

This book, a profound guidance text written by the learned and accomplished Tsele Natsok Rangdrol, is concise, lucid and easy to practice.

The Circle of the Sun  would benefit everyone interested in the Dharma. The words are clear and easy to understand and lengthy scholarly expositions are not emphasized. This text, easy to comprehend and containing all the key points and very direct instructions, results from following the oral advice of a qualified master.

The most effective style of teaching for a practitioner in this dark age is not a lengthy scholarly explanation but a direct ‘guidance manual'. 'Guidance manual', triyik, means a short, comprehensive teaching.

Trekcho and thogal are the two main topics in this book. Trekcho is the main view in all the Eight Practice Lineages. Through trekcho, all the masters of the past attained enlightenment. Without the view of trekcho one doesn't reach the core of thogal practice. The thogal visions are  rigdang, 'manifestations of awareness', but lacking the correct view of recognizing rigpa, they become nothing but lungdang, 'manifestations of the karmic wind' - expressions of dualistic fixation. Recognizing rigpa is the key point in trekcho.

Library.nu shut down

The address gigapedia.info has just one message in the last days:


Gigapedia is the entry door to Library.nu one of the largest (and free) booksharing sites. The site operated for years just to providing reading to those that cannot (or don't want) to pay.

You can read more about this sad news in the article by Andrew Losowsky:


TorrentFreak also posted about the shut down:


Read and keep your eyes open. Government don't want people reading and learning for free. In the Middle Ages a copied work of art was a encomium to the artist, today is a easy way to court.

Stop and think by yourself, don't let the money owners think for you. Learn and spread the news, the way to knowledge is becoming dark and dark... but we have an answer: we will not stop because of publishers, fake and bad quality artists, Lamas and Priests, leaders and politicians!

The game is just beginning. Share everywhere!
