Book Launch November 2016

It is with great joy and honor that we announce the upcoming launch of our new book,The Great Tertön!

The Great Tertön is at once a history book, a collection of oral instructions, and a support for our practice. It presents the life-stories of Guru Rinpoché, Chokgyur Lingpa, and all the subsequent Chokling incarnations, as well as some of the main lineage masters from the line of transmission that has come down to rest with Phakchok Rinpoché. These biographies have been taken either from original Tibetan texts or from the oral teachings that great masters have given in recent years. Each text benefits from a commentary by Phakchok Rinpoché, and each section is accompanied by a supplication or aspiration prayer, giving us the means to apply what we have learnt, directly in our practice. The choice of texts and the structure of the book were designed by Rinpoché himself, who thereby gently guides us throughout the book towards a deeper understanding of the ground, path, and fruition of Vajrayāna practice.

The Great Tertön is thus an indispensable book for all Chokling Tersar practitioners, but also a source of wisdom and inspiration for any follower of the Vajrayāna. Filled with amazing accounts, replete with teachings on devotion and pure perception, The Great Tertön offers practitioners all the necessary resources to cultivate the right approach towards our practice and our teachers.

The Great Tertön is a rich collection of 560 pages of translations of the writings of our lineage masters, accompanied by original teachings from Phakchok Rinpoche. At Lhasey Lotsawa Translations and Publications, we wished for the book’s outer appearance to do honor to its precious contents, and The Great Tertön is therefore a hard-cover book, beautifully illustrated with color pictures of sacred images.

The Great Tertön thus not only provides its readers with comprehensive teachings on the Chokling Tersar lineage, but is also a precious object that they can treasure for a long time coming. It is also the fruit of two years of work and of the numerous contributions of our translators, writers, editors, and designers. In order to continue to support their work in the future, we are selling the book for 34.95 USD.

All proceeds from these sales will go toward funding further Lhasey Lotsawa Translations and Publications projects, and supporting our ongoing endeavor to make the teachings of our precious guru and of his lineage masters available to students across the world.
