The Tibetan book of the great liberation; or, The method of realizing Nirvāṇa through knowing the mind; preceded by an epitome of Padma-Sambhava's biography by W. Y Evans-Wentz( Book )

41 editions published between 1954 and 1999 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unknown to the Western world until its first publication in 1954, this work explicates the quintessence of the Supreme Path, or Mahayana, and fully reveals the yogic method of attaining Enlightenment. Such attainment can happen, as shown here, by means of knowing the One Mind, the cosmic All-Consciousness, without recourse to the postures, breathings, and other techniques associated with the lower yogas. Also presented here is a thirty-five page commentary by the eminent psychoanalyst Dr. C.G. Jung and a one hundred page General Introduction from editor W.Y. Evans-Wentz. The former discusses differences in Eastern and Western modes of thought and equates the "collective unconscious" with the Buddhist Enlightened Mind; while the latter explains several key names and notions (such as Nirvana) with the lucidity, ease, and sagacity that are this scholar's hallmark." "Although the original text of this yoga belongs to the Bardo Thodol series of treatises concerning various methods of attaining transcendence, authorship of this particular volume is attributed to the legendary Padma-Sambhava. Padma-Sambhava's text is preceded by an account of the great guru's own life and secret doctrines and is followed by the testamentary teachings of the Guru Phadampa Sangay, which are meant to augment the thought of the other gurus discussed herein."--Jacket
The light of wisdom by Kong-sprul Blo-gros-mthaʼ-yas( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Light of Wisdom, the Conclusion, presents detailed explanations of the activities of a Vajra Master and Buddhist practices to clear away hindrances on the path and enhance realization. The book is a combination of three texts: The root text, The Gradual Path of the Wisdom Essence is oral instructions of Padmasambhava, recorded by his chief female disciple, Yeshe Tsogyal. Padmasambhava established the Buddhist doctrine in Tibet during the eight century. He concealed teachings in the form of hidden treasures, to be revealed at an appropriate time in the future. The Light of Wisdom by JamgOn KongtrUl, one of the most prominent Buddhist masters of nineteenth-century Tibet, is an extensive commentary on this sacred scripture. Entering the Path of Wisdom consists of annotations on the commentary by Jamyang Drakpa, a student of JamgOn KongtrUl, dictated to Jokyab Rinpoche. The root text of Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo, a terma revealed by the great treasure-finder Chokgyur Lingpa, and its commentary by KongtrUl Rinpoche, the great translator in person, form together a complete scripture that embodies all the tantras, statements and instructions of the Nyingma School of the early translations, which is most rare to find in the past, present, or future ... I find it important that all Dharma practitioners study and reflect upon this book. ' Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche It is correct that it will be quite difficult to practice the entire Gradual Path of the Wisdom Essence, so you should use what is directly appropriate for your training. It is never said that you should practice an entire root text as Light of Wisdom contains the complete path for different kinds of individuals, both of Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana. But since its title is the Wisdom Essence, it means that its ultimate practice is Dzogchen. ' Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche

A garland of views : a guide to view, meditation, and result in the nine vehicles : Padmasambhava's classic text with a commentary by Jamgön Mipham by Padma Sambhava( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A core text of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, presented in English for the first time, with commentary by Jamgon Mipham, one of the Nyingma tradition's most lucid and brilliant minds. A concise commentary by the eighth-century Indian Buddhist master Padmasambhava on a chapter from the Guhyagarbha Tantra, which gives an overview of the different Buddhist and non-Buddhist philosophical views, including the Great Perfection (Dzogchen), with an explicative commentary by the nineteenth-century scholar Jamgon Mipham (1846-1912). Padmasambhava's text is a core text of the Nyingma tradition because it provides the basis for the system of nine vehicles (three sutra vehicles and six tantra vehicles) that subsequently became the accepted way of classifying the different Buddhist paths in the Nyingma tradition. Mipham's commentary is the one most commonly used to explain Padmasambhava's teaching. Mipham is well known for his prolific, lucid, and original writings on many subjects, including science, medicine, and philosophy, in addition to Tibetan Buddhist practice and theory"--

Treasures from Juniper Ridge : the profound instructions of Padmasambhava to the Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal by Padma Sambhava( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Treasures from Juniper Ridge combines meditation and pith practice instructions in a way that is easy to apply and comprehend. It is a compilation of discovered teachings, termas, by the greatest master of Vajrayana Buddhism, Padmasambhava, hidden by his female disciple, Yeshe Tsogyal. Treasures is replete with pieces that are direct, profound, fresh, and pertinent to our times. These various revelations are for all levels of practitioners. They provide indepth explanations of assorted aspects of practice, including: deity, death and dying, non-conceptual meditation and recognizing mind nature. The book outlines ways to apply these teachings for the modern student, while remaining true to traditional principles. "Padmasambhava's pith instructions are extremely important because he is not just a legendary figure or an ancient myth. He is an actual person who continuously carries out spontaneous activities, including manifesting as treasure revealers, so that there is always a fresh, unimpaired teaching that people can practice. This also ensures that Padmasambhava's spiritual influence and blessings are unceasing. The special quality of these terma teachings is that they provide a method for accomplishment that is appropriate for each specific generation, period of time, and individual person who meets them. The treasure teachings he gave on the Juniper Ridge of Crystal Pearls contain the essential meaning of hundreds of such instructions."--Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche
