Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Only a fraction of Tibet's vast literature of mystical poetry has yet been translated into other languages. Now with the gift of Ngawang Zangpo's inspired English translations the exquisite expressions of inner experience sung by the greatest men and women of the Shangpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism are available to the world."—Cyrus Stearns, author of The Buddha from Dolpo, Hermit of Go Gliffs, and Luminous Lives

"Our lineage's past spiritual masters used songs to express their manifest experience and realization of the spiritual path's vital subjects such as the trio of basis path and result; or view meditation and conduct; as well as dispelling hindrances and enriching meditative experience. The blessings of the lineage enter our heart the very best technique to realize our mind's abiding nature Great Seal. I pray that all who see hear or read this book be blessed."— Bokar Rinpoche

"Highly commendable volume....flows beautifully and [is] rendered by a skilled and experienced translator..."— Journal of Asian Studies

From the foreword: " "Timeless Rapture" now takes its honored place beside such books as the "The Hundred Thousand Songs", "Drinking the Mountain Stream" (both of Milarepa) and "The Rain of Wisdom: Vajra Songs of the Kagyu Gurus." Each of these texts shares the quality of inspiration described here, yet each offers its own distinct perspective on the vajra world."

"The Shangpa Kagyu lineage originated during the eleventh century with the learned and accomplished Kyungpo Naljor. (...) Exceptionally, the Shangpa Kagyu lineage remained for seven generations a one-to-one transmission, each master transmitting these instructions to a single disciple. (...) This lineage has managed to remain unobtrusive; most of the primary lineage holders have chosen to live as concealed yogis, to avoid institutional responsibilities, and to commit themselves to solitude and meditation."

From the translator's preface: "Lamas of every tradition - Gelug, Sakya, Nyingma, and Kagyu - have received and practice the Shangpa tradition. The lineage is extremely discreet but not elusive; it silently pervades the Himalayan region yet is centered nowhere. In this the Shangpa lineage resembles another lineage of tantric meditation begun by a woman: the Severance (Chö), established by Machig Lapdrön, a Tibetan reincarnation of one of the Shangpa lineage founders, Sukasiddhi. Her spiritual children as well have always preferred the freedom of homelessness, the exhilaration of total renunciation, and good-natured harmony with one and all. The Severance lineage often walked hand-in-hand with the Shangpa teachings through the walls of Tibet's religious institutions, whereas less ethereal traditions were often stopped at the gates."

The importance of the Shangpa lineage is expressed by the following quotation (on p.257 of the text): "Looking back over more than a thousand years of the Tibetan experience of Buddhism, Kongtrul felt that Kyungpo Naljor was the finest accomplished master Tibet had ever produced, bar none." And further: "No authoritative testimonial to the greatness of this master surpasses that of Jamgön Kongtrul, who expressed this opinion of Kyungpo Nalyor in "An Impartial History of the Sources of Spiritual Instruction". Jamgön Kongtrul, himself a Shangpa lineage holder, is the original compiler of this collection of "Timeless Rapture".

This book is a must-own for those interested.
