Acquisitions July 2013

On the occasion of its official opening, the Dhagpo Kagyu Library received a generous donation of more than 7 700€ from the Bodhi Path Centers for buying texts and books and contributing in this way to the development of the documentary collection. They also offered a new collection in 3 volumes of the works of the meditation master Chögyam Trungpa, The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Boston, Shambhala Publications, 2013.

The first volume presents the path of individual liberation, the second one the bodhisattva path of wisdom and compassion and the third one gives insight into the vajrayana path.
These 3 volumes are based on the teachings transmitted by Chögyam Trungpa during his thirteen Vajradhatu Seminaries held in US between 1973 and 1986. This collection gives an overview of the whole Buddhist path including the hinaya, bodhisattvayana and vajrayana vehicles as presented according to Chögyam Trungpa’s approach.
