English summary: Dharmakirti's second fundamental treatise, the Pramanaviniscaya, contains a mature and comprehensive explanation of his epistemology and logic. The work of this influential Indian philosopher, active in the first half of the 7th century CE, consists of three chapters that are devoted, respectively, to the sources of knowledge and perception, to inference, and to proof. The first two chapters are presented here. An edition of the third chapter is under preparation by Pascale Hugon, Toru Tomabechi, and Tom Tillemans. Until recently this work was known only through its Tibetan translation. The present edition of the original Sanskrit text is based on two complete codices, three larger and one smaller fragment in the collection of photocopies of the Chinese Tibetology Research Center, Beijing, as well as a single folio from the National Archives, Kathmandu. Of this manuscript materials there are actually three complete codices available for the first two chapters. In addition to these codices, numerous citations and reports are adduced as secondary testimonies. The introduction not only describes the codices used for the present edition and the fragments relevant for the third chapter, but also introduces the secondary testimonies and explains their treatment. Preliminary conclusions about the stemma as based on the present text and explanations of the apparatus and editorial conventions conclude the introduction. In addition, the publication includes a bibliography, two appendices and indices. German description: Dharmakirtis zweites Hauptwerk, der Prama?aviniscaya, enthalt die ausgereifte und umfassende Darlegung seiner Erkenntnislehre und Logik. Das Werk dieses einflussreichen indischen Philosophen der ersten Halfte des 7. Jh. n.u.Z. besteht aus drei Kapiteln, die den Erkenntnisquellen und der Wahrnehmung, der Schluafolgerung, und dem Beweis gewidmet sind. Die beiden ersten Kapitel liegen hier vor. Die Edition des dritten Kapitels durch Pascale Hugon, Toru Tomabechi und Tom Tillemans ist z. Z. in Vorbereitung. Das Werk war bis vor kurzem nur durch seine tibetische Ubersetzung bekannt. Die vorgelegte Edition des originalen Sanskrit-Textes beruht auf zwei vollstandigen codices, drei groaeren und einem kleineren Fragmenten in der Kopiensammlung des Chinese Tibetology Research Center, Beijing, und einem einzelnen Blatt der national Archives, Kathmandu. Fur die ersten zwei Kapitel verfugen wir sogar uber drei codices. Neben diesen codices stehen zahlreiche Zitate und Referate als Sekundarzeugen. In der Einleitung werden nicht nur die fur die vorliegende Ausgabe relevanten codices beschrieben, sondern auch die fragmentarischen fur das dritte Kapitel. Dazu werden die Sekundarquellen vorgestellt und die Art ihrer Behandlung begrundet. Vorlaufige, nur auf den bearbeiteten Bereich bezogene Stemma-Bemerkungen sowie Erklarungen der Apparate und Konventionen schlieaen die Einleitung ab.

In this book, Anne Carolyn Klein, an American scholar and teacher of Buddhism, and Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, a rigorously trained Tibetan Lama who was among the first to bring Bon Dzogchen teachings to the West, provide a study and translation of the Authenticity of Open Awareness, a foundational text of the Bon Dzogchen tradition. This is the first time a Bon philosophical text of this scope has been translated into any Western language, and as such it is a significant addition to the study of Tibetan religion and Eastern thought. Klein and Rinpoche provide extensive introductory, explanatory and historical material that situates the text in the context of Tibetan thought and culture, thus making it accessible to nonspecialists, and an essential reference for scholars and practitioners alike.

Great Treatise On The Stages Of Mantra Sngags Rim Chen Mo

Tsong Khapa's Great Treatise on the Stages of Mantra ( Sngags rim chen mo)--considered by the present Dalai Lama to be one of Tsong Khapa's two most im­portant books (along with his Lam rim chen mo)--is his masterful synthesis of the prin­ciples and practices of all four classes of Tantra, which formed the basis of his innovation in creat­ing the esoteric "Tantric College" institution and cur­ricu­lum in the early fifteenth century. With detailed reference to hundreds of works from the Tibetan Kangyur and Tengyur, the chapters presented and studied in this volume concern his treatment of the creation stage (bskyed rim) meditations of Unexcelled Yoga Tantra. This includes a detailed analysis emphasizing how and why such creation stage practices--uti­lizing deity yoga to transform death, the between, and life into the three bodies of buddhahood--are indispensible to creat­­ing a foundation for successfully enter­ing the culminal yogic practices of the perfection stage. (A subsequent volume will present the perfection stage chapters of this essential masterwork.) An important work for both scholars and practitioners, this annotated translation is sup­ple­men­ted with extensive support materials. A companion volume of the critically edited Tibetan text--annotated with the found quotes from Tengyur and Kangyur texts in Tibetan (and Sanskrit where available)--also will be published in a limited edition, and as an e-book.

The book shows that the ancient Indians were no primitives but possessed a high spiritual culture, which not only influenced the evolution of the Western world in decisive ways but which still has much to teach us today. India`s archaic spirituality is codified in the rich symbols, metaphors, and myths of the magnificent Rig-Veda, which is shown to be much older than has been widely assumed by scholars. The present book also unravels the astonishing mathematical and astronomical code hidden in the Vedic hymns. Anyone interested in ancient cultural history, India, archaeo-astronomy, or spirituality will find this well-researched and cross-cultural work spellbinding and enriching.
