Mystical Verses of a Mad Dalai Lama

By Glenn H. Mullin, Foreword by His Holiness The Dalai Lama.

270 Pages | First Quest Edition 1994 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607003.

The Tibetan tradition of mystical verse is brought stunningly to life by renowned translator Glenn Mullin through these spontaneous outpourings of the ecstasy of enlightenment. Step into the visionairy of the outspoken and unconventional Second Dalai Lama, who was ‘crazed’ by the wisdom of the nature of reality. Prefaced by a readable and comprehensive introduction to the life and times of this wise exponent of spiritual knowledge, these poems are shining, lyric illuminations of Buddhist life. Each is prefaced by a translator’s preamble.

From Chapter 11 – ‘A Prayer of Pure Aspirations’ (p. 193):

Part One: A Call to the Guru:

” Most kind root guru, who always rests

On a sun and moon above my head,

I, a humble disciple, call out to you

With emotion surging in the depths of my heart.

From wherever you may physically be in this world,

Send forth a mystical emanation to heed me.

Reveal your radiant countenance to me;

And may we never ever become parted. “

Letters to a Dying Friend – Helping Those You Love Make A Conscious Transition (1997 edition)

By Anton Grosz with a Foreword by His Holines the 14th Dalai Lama.

170 Pages | A Quest Original 1989, second edition 1992, revised edition 1997 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607658.

Based on Tibetan Book of the Dead. Advice from Ancient Teachings and Modern Science on the dying process and what comes next.

When Anton Grosz’s friend Peter died – suddenly, much too young, while jogging with his dog Max – Grosz was struck by how little prepared Peter had been to make a conscious exit. These letters are what Grosz would have told him, if he had had the chance. about the process of dying and what comes next.

Fortunately, we do have the opportunity to read these moving letters and to discover how the Ancient Wisdom of The Tibetan Book of the Dead and the findings of modern science can help us be better prepared – and prepare those we love – to leave life with conscious grace and faith in the life to come.

From Chapter 15 – ‘The Tibetan Book of the Dead’ (p. 60):

” Dear friend, in the last letter we looked at the historical setting within which Padma Sambhava, the founder of Tibetan Lamaism, created the ‘Bardo Thödol’, a book which has been remained a cornerstone of the Tibetan culture for over a thousand years. Its teachings about the many pathways which the individual Soul can take after death are a fascinating combination of the Buddha’s concept of the totality of existence being within the individual consciousness and the various aspects of that consciousness, represented by the numerous Gods, spirits, and settings known and accepted by the practitioners of Bön. In some ways, it is this very dichotomy between the highly intellectual and the intensely ritualistic which provides the book’s great emotional and inspirational impact, not to mention its unique and colorful cast of characters. “

Kundun – A Biography of the Family of the Dalai Lama

By Mary Craig.

391 Pages | First published in Great Britain, first paperback edition 1998 | Paperback | Counterpoint, Washington | ISBN: 1887178910.

Here is the story of Tibet as told by its remarkable first family – a story of reïncarnation, coronation, heartbreaking exile, and finally the tenacious efforts of a holy man to save a nation and its people.

From the Foreword:

” We Tibetans are resilient, patient and resourceful. Ours is just a cause. We continue to be confident that the truth will ultimately triumph and our land and people will once more be free. Would the Chinese consider the Tibetan question so sensitive if our cause was dead? Under difficult circumstances we have kept the Tibetan spirit and a sense of hope alive. However, it is clear that these efforts alone will not be sufficient to bring about a final positive solution. Therefore, I appeal to the readers of this book to support the Tibetan people, so that ultimately they may again live in peace and dignity.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. “

From Chapter ‘Lord of the Lion Throne’, p. 68:

” He is supposed to be the temporary embodiment of a god . . . called upon to lead, comfort and improve sinful, sufferinf mankind, and to teach the way to release. It is throughout the same being who sits on the Lhasa throne in successive embodiments. The secret person, the spiritual reality of the Dalai Lama, is immutable and only his body changes, a perishable vessel employed to reach down to the lowly human level and to make the dazzling light of the truth he embodies accessible to our limited understanding. ”
