THE OPENING OF THE WISDOM EYE: AND THE HISTORY OF THE ADVANCEMENT OF BUDDHADHARMA IN TIBET
THE OPENING OF THE WISDOM EYE: AND THE HISTORY OF THE ADVANCEMENT OF BUDDHADHARMA IN TIBET
Description

About the Book:

THIS important book by His Holiness the Dalai Lama XIV gives an authentic account of the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. It is hoped that its publication will contribute to a greater understanding of Tibetan culture.

The main part of the book is preceded by a short account of the spread of Buddhism in Tibet, also written by His Holiness. The whole range of Buddhist teachings as practised in Tibet is expounded with great clarity, yet with brevity.

The work has been translated from the Tibetan language by three Buddhist scholars who worked together at a Buddhist temple in Thailand: Thubten Kalzang Rinpoche from Tibet, a noted scholar of Sanskrit and Hindi; Bhikkhu Nagasena of India, whose knowledge of Pali and Siamese has earned him the title of Phra Maha; and Bhikkhu Khantipalo of England, whose books include Buddhism Explained and Tolerance.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
