Namo Buddha Publications has not published this teaching as a book but will be publishing these teachings in the future. Until now the very best way to "be there" at the teachings is to purchase the DVD. The DVD plays in DVD players and most computers and includes the Tibetan by Thrangu Rinpoche, the English translation, Questions and Answers.
The Magical Key is a concise text written by Khenpo Gangshar Wangpo presenting the philosophical schools, focusing primarily on the profound definitive meaning of the Great Middle Way. Khenpo Gangshar held the lineage of teachings of Mipham Rinpoche. He also was one of the most influential teachers of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Thrangu Rinpoche.
This text by Khenpo Gangshar was recently discovered and translated into English. Understanding the view is an essential foundation for developing direct experience and realization when practicing Mahamudra and Dzogchen. In these talks, Thrangu Rinpoche presents the view based on teachings he received directly from Khenpo Gangshar. Rinpoche briefly explains five non-Buddhist Schools as well as the Vaibhashika, Sautantrika and Chittmatra (Mind Only) schools of Buddhism. The primary focus of these teachings, however, is on the Middle Way Schools of the Mahayana.
Khenpo Gangshar’s text skillfully presents the meaning of the Great Shentong Middle Way School and its relationship to the Rongtong Middle Way School. Thrangu Rinpoche’s commentary clarifies this text making Khenpo Gangshar’s profound teaching accessible. Translation by David Karma Choephel.
This DVD Set consists of 9 talks on 5 DVDs.
