1 Lisa Stein and Ngawang Zangpo (trs.)
Buton's History of Buddhism in India and Its Spread to Tibet. A Treasury of Priceless Scripture
Snow Lion Publications; Ithaca, New York, USA; 1559394137 / 9781559394130; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This 14th century lively history introduces basic Buddhism as practiced throughout India and Tibet and describes the process of entering the Buddhist path through study and reflection. In the first chapter, we read about the structure of Buddhist education and the range of its subjects, and we're treated to a rousing litany of the merits of such instruction. In the second chapter, Butön introduces us to the buddhas of our world and eon, three of whom have already lived, taught, and passed into transcendence, before examining in detail the fourth, our own Buddha Shakyamuni. Butön tells the story of Shakyamuni in his past lives, then presents the path the Buddha followed (the same that all historical buddhas, including future ones, must follow). Only at the conclusion of the discussion of the result—enlightenment—do we return to the specific case of the Buddha and his twelve deeds. This marks the start of the history of the Buddha as most of us imagine it. After the Buddha's story, Butön recounts three compilations of Buddhist scriptures, and then quotes from sacred texts that foretell the lives and contributions of great Indian Buddhist masters, which he then relates. The chapter concludes with the tale of the Buddhist doctrine's eventual demise and disappearance, a concept and a tale squarely within the Mahayana. The final chapter, the shortest of the three, gives an account of the inception and spread of Buddhism in Tibet, focused mainly on the country's kings and early adopters of the foreign faith. The watershed debate at Samyé Monastery between representatives of Chinese and Indian styles of Buddhist practice is given the most attention in this chapter. An afterword by Ngawang Zangpo, one of the translators, discusses and contextualizes Butön's exemplary life, his turbulent times, and his prolific works. Printed Pages: 444. 037859

3 Ngawang Zangpo
Sacred Ground: Jamgon Kongtrul on "Pilgrimage and Sacred Geography"
Snow Lion Publications; Boston, USA; 1559391642 / 9781559391641; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé (1813-1899) was one of the most influential figures and prolific writers in the Tibetan Buddhist world. He was a founder and the single most important proponent of the nonsectarian movement that flourished in eastern Tibet and remains popular today. Two additional texts discuss his previous lives and recount Kongtrul's final days. "Filled with insight into the human heart. It stands out as a superb example of a genuinely unbiased approach to spirituality, which is of particular relevance to our modern world."--The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche "More than a biography, the story of the extraordinary Kongtrul is an inspiration to all serious students of Buddhist practice and scholarship. Unparalleled in benefiting beings, his life exemplifies the most noble of human endeavors--the accomplishment of receiving and practicing, codifying and transmitting, the entirety of Tibet's spiritual traditions. We are fortunate that one of the most gifted translators of our times, Richard Barron, has brought forth this treasure."--Erik Pema Kunsang, translator of Kongtrul's "Light of Wisdom" series "Reading the autobiography of this supreme master gives us an understanding of the truly wondrous deeds that bodhisattvas perform, filling our minds with awe and our hearts with faith. It inspires us to actualize our own inherent potential that allows the qualities of the bodhisattvas to manifest within ourselves. This book is a priceless treasure to be studied and revered."--Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche "To glimpse the origins of Buddhism in Tibet, we must read accounts of the lives of such masters as Milarepa and Guru Rinpoch8}É{c9}é. To survey Tibetan Buddhism at its fullest flowering many centuries later, we must read this book, the autobiography of the lama who gave Tibetan Buddhism its definitive form. Richard Barron, brilliant translator of some of the most important Buddhist texts to appear in English, again offers us a meticulous translation of a crucial, challenging work. This book is a must-read for any person committed to the Tibetan Buddhist path of reflection and meditation."-- Ngawang Zangpo, author of Sacred Ground and Guru Rinpoché Printed Pages: 574. 020858

4 Jamgon Kongtrul; translated and Introduced By Ngawang Zangpo
Timeless Rapture: Inspired Verse of the Shangpa Masters
Snow Lion Publications; Ithaca, New York, USA; 1559392045 / 9781559392044; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Throughout history awakened ones have celebrated the rapture of mystical states with inspired verse, sung extemporaneously. This book offers a rare glimpse into the mysticism of the Shangpa Kagyu lineage, a tradition based mainly on the profound teaching of 2 women. This compendium of spontaneous verse sung by tantric Buddhist masters from the 10th century to the present includes translations as well as short descriptions of each poet's life and a historical overview of the lineage. "Our lineage's past spiritual masters used songs to express their manifest experience and realization of the spiritual path's vital subjects, such as the trio of basis, path, and result; or view, meditation, and conduct; as well as dispelling hindrances and enriching meditative experience. The blessings of the lineage enter our heart, the very best technique to realize our mind's abiding nature, Great Seal. I pray that all who see, hear, or read this book be blessed."-- Bokar Rinpoche "Only a fraction of Tibet's vast literature of mystical poetry has yet been translated into other languages. Now, with the gift of Ngawang Zangpo's inspired English translations, the exquisite expressions of inner experience sung by the greatest men and women of the Shangpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism are available to the world."-- Cyrus Stearns, author of The Buddha from Dolpo, Hermit of Go Gliffs, and Luminous Lives "Ngawang Zangpo's fluid translation and rich commentary truly brings us into the presence of the extra-ordinary masters of the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. As we listen to their verse, we are transported by their devotion, awakened wisdom, and blessing to the Vajra world that has become their home."-- Lama Drupgyu Tenzin "Ngawang Zangpo has given us, for the first time in English, the complete translation of the Songs of Realization of the Shangpa masters. This is a living, unbroken lineage, of fully realized mahasiddhas, both female and male, whose teachings burst forth in spontaneous song. Through the centuries these pith instructions have inspired and brought to full realization generations of yogis and yoginis. I highly recommend Timeless Rapture for its illuminating and joyful transmission."-- Lama Palden Drolma, Sukhasiddhi Foundation Printed Pages: 416. 001689
