AbstractThis book brings together an inspiring collection of poems, songs of realization, meditation instructions, and philosophical treatises all chosen for their power to speak directly to the student. Drawn from Indian Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism, as well as from all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism, some will impress with their beautiful poetry and powerful imagery; others with their profound power of instruction. Still others share personal advice for life that seems to come directly from the mouth of the author, and some serve as immediate and profound practice instructions. Several are just delightfully unconventional, even outrageous, letting in fresh air on petrified views or musty traditions.
Each of the works is preceded by a brief introduction and a short biography of its author. Many of these are legendary accounts of supernatural feats, edifying examples meant to to expand the limited outlook of students with mind-blowing stories.
The texts include works by Atisha, Tilopa, Nagarjuna, Maitripa, Asvaghosha, Padmasambhava, Aryadeva, Chandrakirti, Rechungpa, Tangtong Gyalpo, Gampopa, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Sakya Pandita, Karma Chagme, Mipham Rinpoche, the Thirteenth Karmapa, the Fourth, Fifth and the Sixth Sharmapas, Patrul Rinpoche, Gendun Chopel, Jigden Sumgon, Longchenpa, Thrangu Rinpoche, Sakya Chogden, the Eighth Karmapa, Kunkyen Dashi Oser, and others.
