A tulku is a fully enlightened one (buddha) or highly accomplished adept (siddha) who chooses to be reborn again and again for the benefit of all beings. Most tulkus, though, are the rebirths of well-trained masters who are engaged in spiritual training and serving others. Tibetan Buddhists have, for well over a millennium, been meticulously following the tradition of finding, recognizing, enthroning, training, and venerating these revered figures who provide teachings of liberation for both monks and laypeople. This guide to the tulku tradition covers its long history, separating fact from fiction, giving an overview of how the system works, and providing short biographies of some of the great tulkus of the past and present. Included are accounts of the magical occurrences that are associated with these remarkable beings, and advice for how anyone can set out on the tulku path.

Have you ever wondered what mysticism is? This text attempts to answer this and many other questions and presents an objective study of the subjective mystical experience. Including selected texts from both well-known and some more unfamiliar mystics, the author suggests an explanation of an essentially personal experience. The book attempts to provide answers to the following questions: what is mysticism?; why do people seek mystical experience?; how can the essence of mysticism be communicated?; what are the stages on the way of Divine Union?; and why is mysticism such a universal phenomenon?

The texts in Sacred Tibetan Teachings include "The Great Secret Union of the Sun and Moon", and "The Doctrine of the Six Lights". According to these esoteric writings of the pre-Buddhist Bonpo era, after-death experience are only reflections of one's own mind. Recognizing their illusory nature is the beginning of liberation from the causal chain of birth, death and rebirth. Giacomella Orofino's translations make an excellent companion to W. Y. Evans-Wentz's classic studies.
