In the Bardo there are two main sets of deities that appear: the peaceful deities and the wrathful or fierce deities. This Picture is of Samantarabhadra in union with his femine aspect who is Samantrabhadri. These two are the head  of the peaceful deities in the Bardo. This picture is actually almost two feet wide and we make it available as a 8 inch by 10 inch and also a very small 4 by 6 inch picture.

This 74 page booklet gives a clear and concise overview of how to do basic sitting meditation. The author Thrangu Rinpoche has spent the last 40 years teaching meditation and other Buddhist topics to both Western and asian students. The process of developing good meditation is to begin with Shamatha meditation which is to settle the mind and to gradually train it it so that we can rest without becoming overly distracted by thoughts and emotions. The second step to developing good meditation is developing Vipashyana in which we learn how to look directly at our mind and see its true nature. When we are able to do this, we can begin to diminish our disturbing emotions and thoughts and our anxieties. Both of these meditations can be done anywhere and without a special setting, implements, or empowerments. Rinpoche explains meditation in a simple, non-technical language based on a meditation tradition that is over 1,000-year-old and has produced many enlightened individuals. Tranquility and Insight  is a 170 page book by Thrangu Rinpoche available on this website that gives extensive descriptions of Shamatha and Vipashyana. This book includes a discussion of the purpose of these meditations, their different levels of practice, the obstacles and antidotes to these obstacles that can arise, and the accomplishments that can come out of of each practice. As a result this book is a careful study of the mind from the point of view of actual meditation practice. ... more info

Death and Reincarnation in Tibetan Buddhism Inbetween Bodies by Tanya Zivkowic The book looks closely at previously unexamined figures whose history is relevant to a better understanding of how Tibetan culture navigates its own under- standing of reincarnation, the veneration of relics and different social roles of different types of practitioners. It analyses both the minutiae of everyday interre- lations between lamas and their devotees, specifically noted in ritual performances and the enactment of lived tradition, and the sacred hagiographical conventions that underpin local knowledge.

Rainbow Body and Resurrection: Spritual Attainment, the Dissolution of the Material body and the case of Khenpo Acho by Francis Tiso. The Rainbow body in which the body of a high practitioner dissolves into space at death is the highest spiritual achievment.   “Francis Tiso has written an astonishing work of broad and deep scholarship that blends a personal spiritual journey, erudition, and on-the-ground interviews with witnesses of the rainbow body to reveal a conversation that began long ago in Central Asia about postmortem transformations of the body in a variety of religious traditions. He has delved deeply into esoteric texts and carefully reviewed recent scholarship to present a detailed history and explanation of practices leading to the attainment of the rainbow body as well as the doctrine of the resurrection in Christianity. General readers and scholars alike will find much of interest in [this book].” —SERINITY YOUNG
