Gateway to Knowledge, Volume 4: The Treatise Entitled the Gate for Entering the Way of a Pandita (New)
by Mipham, Jamgon
Publisher: Rangjung Yeshe
Book ID: 9789627341680, 9627341681
Usually available in 3-5 days
The Gateway to Knowledge is a condensation of the Tripitaka (the traditional term used to describe Buddhist canons of scriptures) and its accompanying commentaries by the Tibetan Buddhist master Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche.
Consolidating the intent of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni's teachings into a unified body of textbooks, Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche elucidates the philosophical backbone of the living tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. This rich source book embodies the basics of Prajnaparamita and Madhyamika as well as the Abhidharma from both Mahayana ("greater vehicle") and Hinayana ("lesser vehicle") perspectives.
Every volume in this series includes the Tibetan text and the English translation on facing pages, permitting side-by-side textual study. Volume 4 elucidates "The Four Seals of the Dharma" (all conditioned things are impermanent, everything defiling is suffering, nirvana is peace, and all phenomena are empty and devoid of self-entity). It also includes the four right discriminations (meaning, Dharma, definitive words, and ready speech) as well as the four reasonings that have been taught in the sutras (the principle of efficacy, the principle of dependence, the principle of reality, and the principle of valid proof) and the four reliances (do not rely on the individual, but on the Dharma; do not rely on the words, but on the meaning; do not rely on the provisional meaning, but on the definitive meaning; and do not rely on the ordinary mind, but rely on wisdom).

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
