Pema Lingpa

Life and Revelations of Pema Lingpa - coverThe Life and Revelations of Pema Lingpa
— translated by Sarah Harding

An important introduction to Buddhism and to the teachings of Guru Padmasambhava. In particular, it includes selections from the treasures revealed by the great Bhutanese master Pema Lingpa.

These fascinating discussions between 11th century court ladies and the great master Padmasambhava, available for the first time in English, weave intriguing issues of gender into Buddhist teachings.

Pema LingpaThe women's doubts and hesitations are masterfully resolved in these impassioned exchanges. Dialogues with female disciples offer inspiration to women practicing the Dharma today.

The wonderful material in this book is part of a terma  (treasure) revealed by Pema Lingpa (1450–1521) - the greatest terton  (treasure-revealer) of the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.

The pithy collection is rounded out by Pema Lingpa's astonishing life story.

This will be of benefit to anyone interested in the Dharma and those practicing in the Peling tradition.
