Books

We have all of Thrangu Rinpoche’s books which have been published. These are listed below and are available for purchase.

All books are brand new and we have reduced their price so that Buddhist students can afford them. A few of Thrangu Rinpoche’s books are out of print or have been made into new books and we have provided these out-of-print books as inexpensive downloadable PDFs.


On Amazon and other places there here cheap Indian knock-offs by Rinpoche which we do not carry simply because we have taken all these rough and outdated manuscripts and have re-editied and corrected them them and had them published by major publishers such as Shambhala Publications, Snow Lion publications, Rangjung Yeshe, Wisdom publications, and Namo Buddha Publications.
