Luminous Essence is a complete introduction to the world of tantric thought and practice. Composed by the renowned Tibetan master Jamgon Mipham (1846-1912), the text provides an overview of the Guhyagarbha Tantra, which has been a central scripture in Tibetan Buddhism for well over a thousand years. Mipham's explanation, translated here for the first time, is one of the most celebrated commentaries on this classic text. Luminous Essence is intended for initiated tantric practitioners. To fully appreciate and assimilate its message, it should be studied under the guidance of a qualified teacher by those who have received the appropriate empowerments, reading transmissions, and oral instructions. I have no doubt that practitioners of the Guhyagarbha Tantra will derive great benefit from reading and relying on this explanatory text. --His Holiness the Dalai Lama

One of the most accomplished scholars and prolific writers of recent times in Tibet was Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche. An eclectic master, who was prominent in the nonsectarian movement that flourished, particularly in Eastern Tibet, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, his works are regarded as authoritative. I am pleased to know that great care has been taken in preparing this translation of Luminous Essence, Mipham Rinpoche's commentary on the Guhyagarbha Tantra, the root tantra which reveals mind and wisdom to be naturally manifest.

Blending contemporary and traditional perspectives, this groundbreaking work offers guidance on the profound foundational practices of the Great Perfection. It contains classic commentaries by the renowned Tibetan masters Jigme Lingpa and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, alongside a lively contemporary discussion by filmmaker, author, and spiritual teacher Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse that discusses how to incorporate these ancient practices into the fast-paced lifestyle of the Western world. Also included are a lengthy introduction to the world of Tibetan Buddhism and its meditative practices, as well as the long and short preliminary practice liturgies and numerous appendices on the nine yanas and other topics. The ngöndro or preliminary practice is treasured in the Ancient School of Tibetan Buddhism as vital for effecting a profound inner transformation and as a foundation for the very highest teachings of the Great Perfection, or Dzogchen. In particular, the Longchen Nyingtik ngöndro—revealed by the great saint Jigme Lingpa following a series of visions in which he was blessed by the omniscient Longchen Rabjam and received the transmission of his wisdom mind—has long been cherished by followers of all traditions on account of its power, depth, and poetic beauty.

Tema în jurul căreia se configurează demersul acestei cărţi este, într-o primă formulare, necritică, cea a ierarhiilor divine. Cadrul metodologic şi de cercetare se înfiripă la confluenţa dintre filosofia religiei şi religie comparată, cu trimiteri înspre domenii de interfaţă precum studiile contemplative, studiile cognitive, filosofia ştiinţei, hermeneutică. Miza este aceea de a înţelege care este sensul şi dinamica ierarhiilor divine, aşa cum sunt ele înfăţişate în diferite tradiţii religioase şi de gândire, pentru a scoate la lumină, în oglindă, diferitele moduri de percepţie şi întruchipare a structurii şi dinamicii lumii / lumilor, printr-un demers care se doreşte relevant pentru înţelegerea omului.

All lineages of Mahamudra meditation have their source in a verse teaching—a "song of realization"—sung by the Mahasiddha Tilopa to his disciple Naropa on the banks of the Ganges River more than a thousand years ago. Since that time, the meaning of Tilopa’s instructions has been passed directly from master to disciple in a continuous stream that exists unbroken to this day. This book offers the reader a rare glimpse into the Mahamudra oral transmission, given in a traditional Tibetan context by one of the lineage’s most learned and accomplished contemporary masters. Mahamudra meditation, while highly advanced, is yet simple, practical, and accessible for anyone, because what is identified and meditated upon is the very nature of one’s own mind. In Sangyes Nyenpa Rinpoche’s words, "The distinction between deception and liberation lies in whether we understand the ever-present nature of our own mind or not. Knowing our own face is liberation; not knowing our own face is samsara. This is not something far distant from us." The instructions are ideal for Westerners because the root text is manageable and Rinpoche has provided an outline of his own composition that makes it easily understandable. He explains terminology with frequent comparisons between Dzogchen and Mahamudra, quotes prolifically from scripture, gives clear examples, and generally cajoles, admonishes, and encourages his listeners to be true to their own spiritual path.

Komplexe dynamische Systeme werden in verschiedenen Wissenschaftsdisziplinen untersucht - von Physik, Chemie, Biologie und Medizin über Kognitionswissenschaften und Psychologie bis zu Soziologie und Ökonomie. Dieser Band zieht Bilanz und zeigt künftige Forschungsperspektiven auf. Gemeinsames methodisches Thema ist die Modellierung komplexer Systeme, deren Dynamik durch Nichtlinearität bestimmt ist. Mathematische Methoden und Computersimulationen machen aber nur Sinn, wenn sie mit konkreten einzelwissenschaftlichen Analysen verbunden sind. Das Buch liefert nicht nur fachübergreifende Informationen über den aktuellen Forschungsstand, sondern kann auch von Nichtspezialisten als Einführung in das spannende Gebiet komplexer Systeme und nichtlinearer Dynamik in Natur und Gesellschaft gelesen werden.

Alle lebendigen Wesen sind Buddhas und verfügen über Weisheit und Tugend.„ (Buddha) Buddha zählt zu den am häufigsten dargestellten Heiligenfiguren der gesamten Welt, vielleicht ist er sogar häufiger als der in der westlichen Kunst so wichtige Christus abgebildet worden. Buddha wird in ganz Asien und weit darüber hinaus verehrt. Sein Bild nahm an der Seidenstraße, dem Geburtsort vieler Varianten des Buddhismus, Gestalt an. Die buddhistische Religion erkennt viele verschiedene Buddhas an, die wiederum unterschiedliche Traditionen verkörpern: so z. B. den Buddhismus der Lehre der Ordens-Älteren (Theravada), des Großen Fahrzeugs (Mahayana) und den Tantrischen Buddhismus (Vajrayana).Der in allen Traditionen verehrte Buddha ist in jeder Kunstform dargestellt worden: in der Bildhauerei, häufig in monumentalen Skulpturen wie etwa den heute zerstörten Buddhas von Bamyan, in der Malerei und vor allem in unzähligen Höhlenmalereien wie etwa jenen im indischen Ajanta oder in den Dunhuang-Höhlen in China. Das vorliegende Werk ist sowohl für den leidenschaftlichen Liebhaber asiatischer Kunst als auch für Neulinge auf diesem Feld ideal geeignet. Es lädt ein, Buddha, seine Geschichte, seine Lehren, aber auch seine unzähligen Gesichter durch insgesamt tausend Abbildungen, großartige Kunstwerke aus den größten Museen der Welt, zu entdecken oder wiederzuentdecken.
