A Concise Biography of the Great Tertön Pedgyal Lingpa, An Emanation of Nupchen Sangye Yeshe

By Gochen Tulku Sangak Rinpoche, Chökyi Nyima (translator)


Pedgyal Lingpa (1924-1988) was a tertön, a modern-day master of the ancient tradition of terma, or revealed teachings, that has its origins in the 8th century CE, during the time of Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava in Tibet. In this biography, Gochen Tulku Sangak Rinpoche, himself a personal student of Pedgyal Lingpa, has given us a rich portrait of this remarkable figure, much of it based on oral history not previously committed to writing.

 

The Lotus & The Rose

$18.95
A Conversation Between Tibetan Buddhism & Mystical Christianity
By Reverend Matthew Fox, Lama Tsomo

What happens when a Tibetan Buddhist lama and a Christian clergyman sit down to talk? And not just any lama and clergyman, but a renegade Catholic priest silenced by the Church for his progressive and inclusive beliefs and an American-born secular Jew who once embraced Tibetan Buddhism as a student, and now is embraced as a teacher.

These conversations between Lama Tsomo and Matthew Fox over the past years explore the essential principles shared by their traditions―and the differences that distinguish them. The Lotus & the Rose includes three public dialogues between Matthew and Lama Tsomo during weekend workshops at Stanford University, The Upaya Zen Center in Santa Fe, and The Jung Center in Houston. Also included is a more personal conversation with no audience except each other. And, finally, individual interviews with both of them, revealing more about their own lives and worldview. Also available to the reader are video excerpts from the presentations, conversations, and interviews.

Buddhists, Christians, followers of other spiritual traditions―and perhaps no spiritual tradition at all―will be intrigued by the range of ideas, and impressed and enlightened by the knowledge and experience that Matthew and Lama Tsomo bring to their exchanges. In this perilously contentious world, all viewers will be heartened by the admiration, respect, humor, and warmth that flows between these two friends who celebrate their common ground and delight in their differences.

Purchase of the book includes free access to the videos using the information on page 16.
