A collection of "hidden" or terma teachings given by Padmasambhava - the Tantric master who brought Vajrayana Buddhism to Tibet.
According to Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, Padmasambhava hid many teachings to be uncovered later by "revealers of hidden treasures". The special quality of the terma teachings is that they provide guidance appropriate for each period of time and individual person. By working with Padmasambhava, Yeshe Tsogyal - his mystic spiritual consort - was able to compile and codify these precious insights and hide them for use by future generations.
Treasures from Juniper Ridge presents a variety of significant revelations for seekers on the advanced path of the Tibetan Vajrayana tradition – from meditation instruction and the Dzogchen view to advice for women householders and a description of the bardo - as well as in-depth explanations of assorted aspects of practice: deity-focused meditation, nonconceptual meditation, death and dying, and recognizing the nature of mind.
Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche (1921—1996) was widely acknowledged as one of the great meditation masters of modern times.
The book outlines ways for the modern student to apply these teachings while remaining true to Vajrayana Buddhism’s traditional principles
