10 Questions for the Dalai Lama DVD 8090032   $ 35.00
Product Image How do you reconcile a commitment to non-violence when faced with violence? Why do the poor often seem happier than the rich? Must a society lose its traditions in order to move into the future? These are some of the questions posed to His Holiness the Dalai Lama by filmmaker and explorer Rick Ray. Ray examines some of the fundamental questions of our time by weaving together observations from his own journeys throughout India and the Middle East, and the wisdom of an extraordinary spiritual leader. This is his story, as told and filmed by Rick Ray during a private visit to his monastery in Dharamsala, India over the course of several months. Also included is rare historical footage as well as footage supplied by individuals who at great personal risk, filmed with hidden cameras within Tibet. Part biography, part philosophy, part adventure and part politics, "10 Questions for The Dalai Lama" conveys more than history and more than answers - it opens a window into the heart of an inspiring man. If you had only one hour, what would you ask?

Anger Buddhist Wisdom for Cooling the Flames 3110115   $ 36.00
Product Image Anger can be one of the most frustrating emotions, carrying us headlong away from ourselves and depositing us into separation and dismay. Vietnamese monk and world teacher Thich Nhat Hanh tackles this most difficult of emotions in Anger. A master at putting complex ideas into simple, colorful packages, Nhat Hanh tells us that, fundamentally, to be angry is to suffer, and that it is our responsibility to alleviate our own suffering. The way to do this is not to fight our emotions or to "let it all out" but to transform ourselves through mindfulness. Emphasizing our basic interdependence, he teaches us how to help others through deep listening and how to water the positive seeds in those around us while starving the negative seeds. Serious though lighthearted, Anger is a handbook not only for transforming anger but for living each moment beautifully

Art of Power 1104040   $ 35.00
Product Image Turning our conventional understanding of power on its head, world-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader, and national bestselling author Thich Nhat Hanh reveals how true power comes from within. What we seek, we already have. Whether we want it or not, power remains one of the central issues in all of our lives. Every day, each of us exercises power in many ways, and our every act subtly affects the world we live in. This struggle for control and authority permeates every aspect of our private and public lives, preventing us from attaining true happiness. The me-first mentality in our culture seeps unnoticed into our decisions and choices. Our bottom-line approach to getting ahead may be most visible in the business world, but the stress, fear, and anxiety it causes are being felt by people in all walks of life.Thich Nhat Hanh illustrates how the current understanding of power leads us on a never-ending search for external markers like job title or salary. "The Art of Power" boldly challenges our assumptions and teaches each of us how to access the true power that is within our grasp.

Awake at Work 5040017   $ 44.00
Product Image Awake at Work: 35 Practical Buddhist Principles for Discovering Clarity and Balance in the Midst of Work's Chaos : Carroll, a businessman and graduate of a Buddhist seminary, brings the sitting cushion into the boardroom with this collection of teachings designed to illuminate the power that mindfulness—"being somewhere completely"—can have at work. By surrendering to the moment, one becomes "alert, open, and unusually skillful," and in this way, Carroll asserts, "our work actually becomes our spiritual path." In brief, accessible chapters, Carroll expounds some 35 slogans designed to be both fodder for meditation and mnemonic devices for when that particular message can help the most, during an opportune moment at work. Many of the slogans are catchy, and their teachings are pointed and easy to recall: "Welcome the tyrant" helps one to disarm a cranky boss; "Avoid idiot compassion" reminds one to eschew giving merely superficial help. But other slogans are more obscure and their teachings more convoluted: "Study the six confusions" and "Extend the four composures." Carroll relates the spiritual principles to practical business settings—such as cherishing the "small boredom" of an elevator ride—and casual readers will gain some helpful tips for handling their professional lives. Yet for the uninitiated, Carroll's simple mindfulness slogans may appear merely simplistic, leaving the slogans' greatest impact for those who already have some experience with—and faith in—the practice of mindfulness training.

Being Peace 3030267   $ 26.00
Product Image At sixty-two poet, author, and Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh is the perfect embodiment of his teachings of socially engaged Buddhism. For the past two decades, exemplifying the Buddhist principles of compassion and reconciliation, he has lived and taught primarily in France and America. two wealthy, powerful countries that did their best to destroy his homeland, Vietnam. Being Peace is a jewel of love and wisdom, a mirror reflecting our own happy Buddhahood, as Hanh always points out, and it is a recognition that will inspire everyone, regardless of previous religious persuasion, with the unexpected joy of smiling. Hanh reminds us of the fundamental importance for the world of just one person smiling, breathing, and being peaceand this is empowering. Yet with that distinct Buddhist love for paradox, in the next breath Hanh dissolves our sense of privileged separateness. Engaged Buddhism means we recognize the inextricable interconnectedness of everyone, or in Buddhist parlance, the endless chain of codependent origination. Clouds, water, sunlight, trees, the logger's labor, his breakfast bread"everything is in this sheet of paper." This is the context for meditation, says Hanh, such that when an individual enters the meditation hall, she brings all of society. We meditate the world and we breathe, smile, and be peace for the enlightenment of everyone, for the clarity of everybody's thoughts, feelings, and attitudes. The apparent membrane separating us is very permeable, and the responsibility significant because the Buddha takes refuge in us. Without us, the Buddha isn't real at all, says Hank and Buddha nature goes disembodied.

Breathing Through the Whole Body 1204012   $ 24.00
Product Image Breathing Through the Whole Body: the Buddhas Instructions on Integrating Mind Body and Breath.... Explores the Buddha's own words on breathing meditation for healing, wholeness, and a deeper understanding of his teachings - Explains the complete series of steps in the Buddha's Satipatthana Sutta for refining awareness of the breath, from posture and center of gravity to extending breath awareness beyond the nostrils, lungs, and abdomen to the entire body - Shows that stillness in meditation refers only to the mind, not to the body - Reveals breath to be a direct agent of healing for chronic tensions and an agitated mind. Explaining how stillness in meditation refers not to a rigid and frozen body but to a quality of mind, Will Johnson examines the Buddha's own words at the core of the Satipatthana Sutta: "As you breathe in, breathe in through the whole body; as you breathe out, breathe out through the whole body" an instruction often overlooked in the majority of Buddhist schools. Exploring the Buddha's complete series of steps for deepening awareness of the breath, he shows how to invite natural, responsive movement back into the posture of meditation by extending breath awareness beyond the nostrils, lungs, and abdomen to the entire body--a practice that unifies the breath, body, and mind into a single shared phenomenon. Showing how the flow of breath is directly affected by chronic tensions in the body and in the mind, Johnson explains that when breath starts flowing through more and more of the body, it becomes a direct agent of healing, massaging and melting any areas of tension it touches and moves through, whether physical or emotional. By breathing through the whole body in accordance with the Buddha’s instructions on breath, the body becomes much more comfortable, the mind starts resolving its addiction to thinking, and meditative practice deepens much more rapidly, allowing the teachings of the Buddha to be directly glimpsed and revealed.

In all three phases of his life-Siddhartha the prince, Gautama the monk, and Buddha the Compassionate One--he was as mortal as you and I, yet he attained enlightenment and was raised to the rank of an immortal. The miracle is that he got there following a heart as human as yours and mine, and just as vulnerable. ”

Buddhist Tantra (9 CD, 540 mins) 1103016   $ 145.00
Product Image "Within my body are all the sacred places of the world," the Buddhist saint Saraha once said, "and the most profound pilgrimage that I can ever make is within my own body." For 15 centuries, the realized masters of the tantric path used the crucible of their own lives to develop a powerful and accelerated means to enlightenment. Today, these teachings remain alive within the usually hidden "inner courtyard" of the vajrayana vehicle of Tibetan Buddhism - a tradition that requires the courage to engage your body, your human desires, and your most challenging life obstacles as the basic “fuel” for insight. Now, with Buddhist Tantra, Reggie Ray – respected acharya (senior teacher) at the Shambhala Mountain Center – introduces you to these precious teachings, and invites you to explore the path to "naked and unprecedented experience." Entering the Vajra World through the Vehicle of Your Body The word tantra means "to weave through, " a metaphor that points to the vibrant fabric of intelligent and living energies that make up the essence of every cell of your body, every fleeting thought you have, and every particle of the universe. To enter this undefiled and ever-renewing "vajra world" – this is the promise of the tantric path. On "Buddhist Tantra", through specific teachings and guided meditations designed to open your body and mind, you will begin to encounter this wondrous and indisputable realm of reality. From this embodied foundation, you will experience 12 sessions of rare teachings.

Immortality and Reincarnation: 1110018   $ 26.00
Product Image Immortality and Reincarnation: Wisdom from the Forbidden Journey: In "Immortality And Reincarnation", the author examines Taoist, Tibetan, and Hindu concepts concerning life after death. This question of what occurs to the individual personality after death is fundamental to the human experience. Contrary to Western belief, which sees the human being as composed of a mortal body and an immortal soul, many Easterners believe on the immortality of both the body and the soul. Famed traveller and mystic, Alexandra David-Neel (1868-1969), was the first Western woman to see the forbidden city of Lhasa, Tibet and to interview the 13th Dalai Lama. She has gained first hand knowledge of Easterners' beliefs on this subject of immortality, and has experience of the practices they engendered. In "Immortality And Reincarnation", she ties together all her knowledge and experiences for a unique look at reincarnation and eternal life in a region untouched by the modern world.

Do you have to believe in reincarnation to understand it? How do I get rid of ?bad? karma?

Session two then brings us an inspirational dharma talk with Dzigar Kongtr Rinpoche, exploring the roots of positive and negative karma, how your 'good heart' will shape this life and the next, service versus self-attachment, and much more.A mature view of karma empowers us to steer our lives through conscious choice rather than conditioned behaviors. Karma gives us a guiding light for living life at the level of cause, not effect, with responsibility and compassion.

Product Image The first book in English to reveal the principles and techniques of the Tibetan martial art of Senguei Ngaro Written by the last holder of the Senguei Ngaro to receive this teaching from its last surviving master Reveals the postures, rules, and teachings of this martial art rooted in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition Senguei Ngaro, which means "the lion’s roar,' is a traditional martial art that was born in the Kham region of Tibet and was secretly handed down by its lineage of warrior monks from the fifteenth century until 1956, when Chinese soldiers destroyed the monastery and massacred all the monks. The superior of the monastery, Lama Bui, survived and fled to the West where he taught it to Lama Tra, the teacher of the author of this book. Today Yogi Tchouzar Pa is the keeper and guardian of this almost vanished tradition. Senguei Ngaro consists of a series of 86 movements and 10 techniques inspired by animal behavior. It offers both a formidable art of combat and, when combined with its advanced meditation on the ultimate nature of spirituality, a means of spiritual advancement. In "The Last Lama Warrior", Yogi Tchouzar Pa provides for the first time in English a fully illustrated and detailed explanation of these postures and their purpose as well as the spiritual principles and traditions on which they are founded. As Yogi Tchouzar Pa explains, "it is only by practicing the physical forms that the depth of the spiritual principles can be understood."

Lifetime of Peace 4100007   $ 46.00
Product Image A Lifetime of Peace follows the successful model established by A Lifetime of Wisdom: Essential Writings by and about the Dalai Lama. It draws on dozens of sources to collect the very best writing by and about Thich Nhat Hanh, the revered Vietnamese Buddhist monk and peace activist. This timely collection is both a political and spiritual handbook which encompasses all of Thich Nhat Hanh's major themes—mindfulness, love, truth, compassion, and peace on earth. In 1967 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. nominated Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize, citing the monk’s lifelong efforts to encourage peace and reconciliation around the world. This important collection will not only present Hanh’s writing about his experiences during the Vietnam War and excerpts from his journals, but also collect a range of other highlights, such as his advice for those entering into meditation practice and his unique insights into Buddhist and Christian theology. But above all, A Lifetime of Peace is a timely and thought-provoking examination of the nature of peace—both as an inner state of being and as a real condition in the world.

Peace is Every Step: the Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Lif 3110149   $ 36.00
Product Image In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. Zen master, peace activist and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the very situations that usually pressure and antagonize us. For him, a ringing telephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, red lights and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to "mindfulness" - the process of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality. The most profound satisfactions, the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we can form right now. Thich Naht Hahn offers commentaries and meditations, personal anecdotes and stories to show how deep meditative presence is available. He provides exercises to increase our awareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing - and he also shows us how to be aware of our relationships with others and of the world around us, its beauty as well as its pollution and injustices.

Pure Sounds Gyuto Monks of Tibet CD 1011074   $ 33.00
Product Image The Gyuto Monks are a world-renowned ensemble of Tibetan vocalists whose music acts as a window into Tibetan Buddhist spiritual tradition. The monks chant using a method called overtone chant - a deep, guttural sound with drone elements. To the novice, the chant may sound unusual. However, if you empty your mind and let the primal drone wash over you, you'll find that eh sounds are very hypnotic and mesmerizing, not unlike the multi-faceted drone of a didgeridoo. The chants are designed for healing and purification, removing internal impurities and helping one focus during meditation. Pure Sounds was named as such to reflect the fact that there is no accompanying music, this is authentic overtone chant performed by this accomplished group of monks.

Tao CD 1105012   $ 32.00
Product Image This is by far Aroshanti's best to date. There are not words to describe how beautiful this performance is as you lose yourself in its stillness and absolute grace. In Zen Buddhism, Tao is "The Way" with Buddha-nature and Buddha-mind. Tao, or Dao, is the sense and expression of the natural balance between opposites. It is soft and quiet but immensely powerful. It is the Tao that keeps the universe balanced and ordered. Translated literally as "The Way" or "The Path", Tao is a name for the eternally nameless, for the fabric out of which all things in the universe are made and from which all universal energies flow. Like a river that never runs dry, the Tao endlessly replenishes itself.

Tibetan Art of Positive Thinking 8040056   $ 30.00
Product Image Tibetan Art Of Positive Thinking: Skillful Thoughts For Successful Living: Norman Vincent Peale goes to Tibet in this self-help manual based on Baan, the little-known indigenous religion of Tibet that predates Buddhism. Since he was a child, Hansard trained in the spiritual and medical traditions of Baan, and now runs a London clinic where he treats celebrities and commoners with the principles of this ancient wisdom. The first two chapters lay out key ideas and theory before moving to the areas where people commonly experience problems: work, money, relationships, health. The book is long on simple exercises, using concentration and ritual practice to resolve problems. As such, it offers help for particular issues: what to do about bullies, stress and overwork, for example. Some ideas are unique to a close relationship with another forms a "third person" that needs nurturing in order to foster that relationship. Others are self-help staples: visualize, let your energy flow. The real-life examples-such as a woman who began to treat herself lovingly and was vibrant and joyful six months later are well-intentioned but unconvincing. Those familiar with Buddhism will find special value in exposure to the religious tradition on which some of the unique forms of Tibetan Buddhism are based. But all can benefit from this problem-solving manual that cultivates concentration and compassion.

Tibetan Energy Yoga DVD 7050006   $ 35.00
Product Image A Traditional Workout To Liberate And Elevate Your Energy:A recent New York Times/NBC poll found that over 23% of Americans practice yoga, meditation, or some form of stress reduction every day. What if there was a way to gain the benefits of these in a single, proven method? Tibetan Energy Yoga does just that. This simple and revitalizing whole-body system began over ten centuries ago when the yogis of India first brought their secret techniques northward to Tibet. From this meeting, the Tibetan lamas weaved together Indian yoga with their own principles of mind training to create a powerful new set of energy exercises found in no other spiritual tradition. On Tibetan Energy Yoga, respected meditation teacher Lama Surya Das guides us through eight of Tibetan yoga’s most effective exercises to master the two vital currents of the body - our solar and lunar energies, as they are known in traditional Tibetan medicine. Originating from the Vajrayana ("lightning" or "diamond") path of Tibetan Buddhism, these practices are meant to benefit users in minutes - not lifetimes - and to generate a pleasurable boost of energy the moment we begin using them. Now, in one exhilarating 30-minute session, here is a way for anyone - from complete beginners to seasoned yoga practitioners - to calm and balance the nervous system, improve breathing, sharpen mental awareness, and restore a healthy and harmonious flow to the dual energy system of the body, with Tibetan Energy Yoga. Includes an 11-page study guide.

When Pain is the Doorway 2 CD 1307010   $ 32.00
Product Image Awakening in the Most Difficult Circumstances Finding Freedom in Our Most Difficult Circumstances.What if the full sense of our aliveness were only to be found amidst our most challenging times and difficult experiences? In pain and crisis, teaches Pema Chodron, there lies a hidden doorway to freedom that appears to us only when we're sure that there is no way out.In these intimate audio learning sessions, Pema Chodron helps us distinguish the triggers or external events that we blame for our suffering from the deeper habitual patterns that feed our anger, fear, or sadness. From this understanding, we learn how to free ourselves from our propensity to suffer through the transformative awareness of impermanence-the dynamic and ever-shifting nature of both joy and suffering, self and selflessness-and the absolute and eternal flow from which all of it arises.What is causing my pain? What will happen if I simply lean in, keep company with it, hold it with tenderness? Moment by moment, Pema supports and encourages listeners to bring an openhearted sense of curiosity and welcoming to our apparently impossible situations or unbearable relationships-to discover the deeper freedom available just beneath the surface.For those experiencing emotional crisis, "When Pain Is the Doorway" provides expert guidance to help us stop, stay present, and enter into a more welcoming, spacious place of being that is our true home.
