Nyingma School

The Nyingma School - coverThe Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism
- Its Fundamentals and History
— by Dudjom Rinpoche

Written by a great modern Nyingma master, this work covers in detail and depth both the fundamental teachings and the history of Tibetan Buddhism's oldest school.

Two treatises - Fundamentals of the Nyingma School and the History of the Nyingma School - are among the most widely read of all His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche's works.

Composed during the years immediately following his arrival in India as a refugee, these treatises were intended to preserve the precise structure of the Nyingma philosophical view within its own historical and cultural context.

Padmasambhava - Guru DragpoThe Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism - the first English translation of these treatises - constitutes the most complete work of its type in the West. Beautifully presented, this single-volume edition features illustrations in black and white and in color, plus maps, bibliographic information, and useful annotations.

The book includes chronologies and glossaries that elucidate Buddhist doctrine, and provides fascinating insights into the Buddhist history of Tibet.

An absolute treasure for students of the tradition, it is also an indispensable reference for anyone with an interest in Buddhism.
