The Collected Works of Chögyam Trungpa brings together in eight volumes the writings of one of the first and most influential and inspirational Tibetan teachers to present Buddhism in the West. Organized by theme, the collection includes full-length books as well as articles, seminar transcripts, poems, plays, and interviews, many of which have never before been available in book form. From memoirs of his escape from Chinese-occupied Tibet to insightful discussions of psychology, mind, and meditation; from original verse and calligraphy to the esoteric lore of tantric Buddhism—the impressive range of Trungpa's vision, talents, and teachings is showcased in this landmark series. Volume Five focuses on the lineages of great teachers who have transmitted the Tibetan Buddhist teachings and on the practice of devotion to the spiritual teacher. It includes inspirational commentaries by Chögyam Trungpa on the lives of famous masters such as Padmasambhava, Naropa, Milarepa, Marpa, and Tilopa, as well as an excerpt from The Sadhana of Mahamudra, a tantric text that Chögyam Trungpa received as terma in 1968. Among the selected writings are "Explanation of the Vajra Guru Mantra," an article never before published, which deals with the mantra that invokes Guru Rinpoche; seminar talks available in book form for the first time; and previously unpublished articles on Milarepa.

From a New York Times–bestselling master with over one million copies in print: Prosecutor Butch Karp hunts a psychopath targeting the innocent. He is the Bogeyman: a remorseless monster stalking the streets of New York in search of fresh victims—his chosen prey being children. The killings are ghastly enough to shock lawyer Butch Karp, who thought he’d already seen the absolute worst of humanity in his work. So when a child abuse case and a homicide case seem to be connected, Karp and his colleague Marlene Ciampi find themselves delving into the darkest corners of New York’s underworld. Their chosen prey? A cold-blooded predator whose twisted work has only just begun—and whose true motives will force Karp to decide how far he is truly willing to go to stop the horror. Known to his fans as “one hell of a writer,” (New York Post) Robert K. Tanenbaum lends truthful, gritty authenticity to his legal thrillers as one of the most successful prosecuting attorneys in America, having convicted hundreds of violent criminals. This is one of the most intense and haunting of the popular series that includes Infamy, Tragic, and No Lesser Plea. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert K. Tanenbaum including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Vajrayogini is a tantric goddess from the highest class of Buddhist tantras who manifests the ultimate development of wisdom and compassion. Her practice is prevalent today among practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism. This ground-breaking book delves into the origins of Vajrayogini, charting her evolution in India and examining her roots in the Cakrasamvara tantra and in Indian tradition relating to siva. The focus of this work is the Guhyasamayasadhanamala, a collection of forty-six sadhanas, or practice texts. Written on palm leaves in Sanskrit and preserved since the twelfth century, this diverse collection, composed by various authors, reveals a multitude of forms of the goddess, each of which is described and illustrated here. One of the sadhanas, the Vajravarahi Sadhana by Umapatideva, depicts Vajrayogini at the center of a mandala of thirty-seven different goddesses, and is here presented in full translation alongside a Sanskrit edition. Elizabeth English provides extensive explanation and annotation of this representative text. Sixteen pages of stunning color plates not only enhance the study but bring the goddess to life.

"This book relies on the insights of ancient and postmodern religious and noetic consciousness, continental philosophy, themes of critical theory, contemporary theorise of self-organizing systems and hermeneutic auto-poiesis, on Jean Gebser's ideas of consciousness structures and on related ideas from hermeneutic ontology and mythopoeia concerning the knack and practical wisdom of non-dualizingly ecopoetic-mind/language-as-nature."--BOOK JACKET.
