Item Description

 

The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma represents a milestone in the transmission of the Buddhadharma to the West.

The three volumes of this extraordinary work present a complete map of the Tibetan Buddhist path from beginning to end, as taught by the Vidyadhara, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. It is based on the teachings presented at the annual three-month meditation and study retreats known as the Vajradhatu Seminaries that he led every summer from 1973 to 1986. This remarkable material—which has never before been published— presents Trungpa Rinpoche’s teaching on the Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana in a way that joins the traditional concepts with contemplative understanding.

Shambhala Publications has long been one of the premier publishers of dharma and spiritual books in the West. From simple beginnings in Berkeley at the height of the sixties counterculture, Shambhala Publications went on to become one of the most respected publishers of the most important books in the spiritual landscape. Their landmark titles include Meditation in Action by Chogyam Trungpa, The Spiritual Teaching of Ramana Maharshi, Edward Espe Brown's Tassajara Bread Book, Fritjof Capra’s The Tao of Physics, best selling translations of the Art of War, Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones,  Pema Chödrön’s When Things Fall Apart, and Suzuki Roshi’s classic, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind.

Shambhala Publications publishes books that present creative and conscious ways of transforming the individual, the society, and the planet. It presents dharma expressed beyond the meditation cushion, in everyday activities and all spheres of human endeavor, including psychology and the sciences, the arts and creativity, business and economics, and health and healing.
