SAVE 20% Lesser-known stories from Sanskrit and Pali sources are for the first time woven into an entertaining and thought-provoking narrative that celebrates women’s crucial roles in the Buddha’s life. “An extraordinary book, following the life span of the Buddha, as the great and brave women who brought equality to the dharma shine through rare and rich stories of their lives. This is a radical and wondrous book, shedding a new and bright light on Buddhism.”—Roshi Joan Halifax, Abbot, Upaya Zen Center Paperback $18.95 This is the first time the mind-training teachings from the Dzogchen tradition have been presented in English translation. The contemplations themselves are vividly described, and some unfold as dramatic stories in which the meditator imagines himself or herself as the main character. Eighteenth-century teacher Jigme Lingpa is one of the most important masters of the Nyingma tradition. He and the great fourteenth-century master Longchen Rabjam, with whom he was closely linked through visionary experience, are known as the “two omniscient masters, father and son.” p s m m “ Thubten Chodron offers a commentary on one of the great Tibetan Buddhist poems, The Wheel of Sharp Weapons, which shows, clearly and practically, how to eliminate the causes of anxiety, fear, and depression and create the causes of joyful liberation for oneself and others. “Thubten Chodron’s commentary on Dharmarakshita’s Wheel of Sharp Weapons is a crash course on transforming pain and suffering into power tools for liberation.” —Chade-Meng Tan, Google’s Jolly Good Fellow, author of Search Inside Yourself Paperback $16.95 Hardcover $29.95 An Online Course taught by Carolyn Rose Gimian Mindfulness in Action Making Friends with Yourself through Meditation and Everyday Awareness See more at: shambhala.com/mindfulness Start date is August 9 • Registration open through August 30 The rewards of mindfulness practice are well proven: reduced stress, improved concentration, and an overall sense of well-being. But those benefits are just the beginning; it can also help us work more effectively with life’s challenges, expanding our appreciation and potential for creative engagement. In this online course, the practice of meditation will be accompanied by instructions for expanding awareness in everyday life, breaking down the boundary between meditation and non-meditation. This is a course for new meditators, for those who want to deepen their meditation practice, and for mindfulness trainers and teachers. The approach is based on the mindfulness teachings of Chögyam Trungpa, as presented in the recent release Mindfulness in Action. Carolyn Gimian has been writing, editing, and teaching meditation and mindfulness for more than thirty-five years. A contributor to Mindful magazine, she teaches seminars on meditation and working with fear, including several she cotaught with Pema Chödrön. She is the editor of many books by Chögyam Trungpa, including his Collected Works and most recently Mindfulness in Action. “One of the effects of meditation is that you become more open-minded, and this gives rise to an interest in working with others. In that way, meditation practice can transform your lifestyle and your relationships with other people.”—Chögyam Trungpa
