2 Balmiki Prasad Singh; Foreword By His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Bahudha and the Post 9/11 World
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195693558 / 9780195693553; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The rise of terrorism and fundamentalism in recent times has brought about phenomenal changes in global politics. These unprecedented challenges call for a new, bold, and imaginative statecraft from world leaders. Underlining the need to transcend age-old peace mechanisms and reconstruct our language of discourse, this book propounds the concept of Bahudh"a—an eternal reality or continuum, a dialogue of harmony, and peaceful living. Bahudh"a recognizes the distinction between plural societies and pluralism, facilitates exchange of views, and promotes understanding of the collective good. The book is divided into five parts. The first part discusses the major events witnessed by the world during 1989–2001—the fall of Berlin Wall, transfer of Hong Kong to China, and the terrorist attack on the USA on September 11— and their implications for various nations, cultures, and international peace. The next part discusses India’s experiences in handling the pluralistic challenge by citing examples from the Vedas and Puranas and analysing policies followed by Ashoka, Kabir, Guru Nanak, Akbar, and Mahatma Gandhi. In the subsequent sections, the author underlines the importance of Bahudh"a as an instrument of public policy for harmony and also discusses the global imperatives of following such an approach. He highlights the central role of education and religion in the building of a harmonious society and advocates the strengthening of the United Nations to become an effective global conflict resolution mechanism. B.P. Singh argues that the answer to terrorism lies in respecting human rights and appreciating various cultures and value systems. This is crucial for facilitating and enhancing dialogue processes eventually leading to amity and a peaceful world. 022710

Thames & Hudson; London, UK; 2002; 0500511012 / 9780500511015; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This spectacular book invites the reader on a journey to an exotic land – and into one’s heart and soul. The authors’ profound intimacy with their subject is immediately apparent in these awe-inspiring images, which present a harmonious mosaic of the unmatched richness of the civilization on the Roof of the World. The beauty of the majestic Himalayan landscape, of the Tibetan people – spiritual masters and humble shepherds alike – and of their sacred places all inspire a desire to look within, in search of an understanding of the essence of Buddhism and the Himalayan spirit. The pictures are accompanied throughout by contributions from nineteen eminent specialists on the region, who discuss the culture, customs, politics and faith of the Himalayan world; past and present. Reflecting not only the cycle of human existence but also the history of the Himalayas, this lavish volume offers an unparalleled insight into Himalayan Buddhism in the 21st century. Olivier and Danielle Föllmi, winners of the World Press Photo Prize, have published fourteen books and have dedicated more than twenty-five years to this project. Matthieu Ricard has been living in the Himalayas as a Buddhist monk for the past thirty years, and has been the French interpreter for the Dalai Lama since 1989.

5 Michaela Haas; Foreword By His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Dakini Power: Twelve Extraordinary Women Shaping the Transmission of Tibetan Buddhism in the West
Snow Lion Publications; New York ,USA; 1559394072 / 9781559394079; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
How 12 Tibetan Buddhist Teachers Succeed in Merging East and West - including Pema Chödrön, Joan Halifax, and Thubten Chodron, among others Personal reflections and life stories from 12 contemporary female Tibetan Buddhist teachers, both Westerners and Tibetans, who share insights into how they discovered their true calling, overcame barriers, and developed the courage, determination, and wisdom to progress on the spiritual path. What drives a young London librarian to board a ship to India, meditate in a remote cave by herself for twelve years, and then build a flourishing nunnery in the Himalayas? How does a surfer girl from Malibu become the head of the main international organization for Buddhist women? Why does the daughter of a music executive in Santa Monica dream so vividly of peacocks one night that she chases these images to Nepal, where she finds the love of her life in an unconventional young Tibetan master? The women featured in Dakini Power—contemporary teachers of Tibetan Buddhism, both Asians and Westerners, who teach in the West—have been universally recognized as accomplished practitioners and brilliant teachers whose life stories demonstrate their immense determination and bravery. Meeting them in this book, readers will be inspired to let go of old fears, explore new paths, and lead the lives they envision. Featured here are: • Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche (This Precious Life) • Dagmola Sakya (Princess in the Land of Snows) • Jetsun Tenzin Palmo (Diane Perry) (Into the Heart of Life) • Pema Chödrön (Deirdre Blomfield-Brown) (When Things Fall Apart; Start Where You Are) • Khandro Tsering Chödron (most familiar to readers as the late aunt of Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying) • Thubten Chodron (Cherry Greene) (Buddhism for Beginners; Taming the Mind) • Karma Lekshe Tsomo (Patricia Zenn) (Buddhism Through American Women ’s Eyes) • Chagdud Khadro (Jane Dedman) (P ’howa Commentary; Life in Relation to Death) • Sangye Khandro (Nanci Gay Gustafson) (Meditation, Transformation, and Dream Yoga) • Roshi Joan Halifax (Being with Dying) • Lama Tsultrim Allione (Joan Rousmanière Ewing) (Women of Wisdom; Feeding Your Demons) • Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel (The Power of an Open Question).

12 Dakpo Tashi Namgyal; translated and Annotated By Lobsang P. Lhalungpa; Foreword By His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Mahamudra: The Moonlight. Quintessence of Mind and Meditation
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 0861712994 / 9780861712991; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
When Mahamudra first appeared in 1986, it was a landmark in the history of Buddhist publishing in English. It was translated at the behest of the 16th Karmapa, who was asked what text would be most beneficial to Western practitioners. Collecting all of Mahamudra's key texts in one volume, the book is a staple for practitioners of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism, who appreciate its detailed theoretical and practical explanations. This stunning new edition, printed on fine paper, is as inspiring to behold as it is to read. Printed Pages: 480. 037423

18 Francisco J. Varela (narrated and edited); Foreword By His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama; Translated By B. Alan Wallace and Thupten Jinpa
Sleeping, Dreaming, and Dying: An Exploration of Consciousness with the Dalai Lama
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 1997; 0861711238 / 9780861711239; First Edition; Paperback; Brand New; 
This is an absorbing account of a dialogue between leading Western scientists and the foremost representative of Buddhism today, the Dalai Lama of Tibet. For modern science, the transitional states of consciousness lie at the forefront of research in many fields. For a Buddhist practitioner these same states present crucial opportunities to explore and transform consciousness itself. This book is the account of a historic dialogue between leading Western scientists and the Dalai Lama of Tibet. Revolving around three key moments of consciousness—sleep, dreams, and death—the conversations recorded here are both engrossing and highly readable. Whether the topic is lucid dreaming, near-death experiences, or the very structure of consciousness itself, the reader is continually surprised and delighted. Narrated by Francisco Varela, an internationally recognized neuroscientist, the book begins with insightful remarks on the notion of personal identity by noted philosopher Charles Taylor, author of the acclaimed Sources of Self. This sets the stage for Dr. Jerome Engel, Dr. Joyce MacDougal, and others to engage in extraordinary exchanges with the Dalai Lama on topics ranging from the neurology of sleep to the yoga of dreams. Remarkable convergences between the Western scientific tradition and the Buddhist contemplative sciences are revealed. Dr. Jayne Gackenbach's discussion of lucid dreaming, for example, prompts a detailed and fascinating response from the Dalai Lama on the manipulation of dreams by Buddhist meditators. The conversations also reveal provocative divergences of opinion, as when the Dalai Lama expresses skepticism about "Near-Death Experiences" as presented by Joan Halifax. The conversations are engrossing and highly readable. Any reader interested in psychology, neuroscience, Buddhism, or the alternative worlds of dreams will surely enjoy Sleeping, Dreaming, and Dying.

19 Geshe Lhundub Sopa with David Patt; Foreword By His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Steps on the Path to Enlightenment: A Commentary on Tsongkhapa's Lamrim Chenmo: Volume I: The Foundation Practices
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 0861713036 / 9780861713035; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The first volume of a much-anticipated, comprehensive commentary on the Lamrim Chenmo by the renowned Buddhist scholar, Geshe Sopa. This landmark commentary - on what is perhaps the most elaborate and elegant Tibetan presentation of the Buddhist path - offers a detail overview of Buddhist philosophy which will be especially invaluable for those who want to enact the wisdom of the Buddha in their lives. In the Lamrim Chenmo, Tsonghkapa explains the path in terms of the three levels of practitioners, those of small capacity who seek happiness in future lives, those of medium capacity who seek liberation from the cycle of suffering, and those of great capacity who seek full enlightenment in order to benefit al beings. This volume covers the topics common to the first level: Tsongkhapa''s explanations of the role of this teacher, his exhortation to take the essence of human existence, the contemplation of death and future lives, and going for the refuge. Given his vast knowledge and his experience in both the Tibetan and Western contexts, Geshe Sopa is the ideal commentator for this work for the modern student of Tibetan Buddhism.
