The Jewel Tree of Tibet

The Enlightenment Engine of Tibetan Buddhism
Digital goods limited to 1 product per purchase
Discover the riches of Tibetan Buddhism and its tradition of a “wish-fulfilling gem tree.”
Full Description

Tibetans call their cherished tradition of Buddhism a wish-fulfilling jewel tree for its power to generate bliss and enlightenment within all who absorb its teachings. This path to enlightenment, it is taught, requires more than a sitting meditation practice alone. With The Jewel Tree of Tibet, honored scholar and teacher Robert Thurman brings these insights to you as they were meant to be transmitted through the spoken word.

As a young seeker almost 40 years ago, Thurman first journeyed to Dharamsala, where he became the first Westerner ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Now, Thurman guides you lucidly through the unifying principles of Tibetan Buddhism's many branches. You will discover Tibetan Buddhism's detailed map of the bliss state of enlightenment; the principles of tantra for opening the doors to infinite compassion and continuity; and how to overcome the dangers of the spiritual quest to discover states of consciousness that transcend even death.

Finally, here is Robert Thurman on audio, offering a rich and intellectually riveting retreat program complete with many specific meditations and spiritual practices to fully immerse you in the mysteries of The Jewel Tree of Tibet.

Review for The Jewel Tree of Tibet

I found Robert Thurman to be a Great Teacher of "The Jewel Tree of Tibet." I've not only learned a great deal about Mahayana Buddhism within these twelve CD,s, but I enjoyed enormously the good humor and liveliness that Robert Thurman gives the teachings. I have listened to all twelve CDs numerous times and each time I learn something new and have fun listening to them. The Jewel Tree of Tibet is not for the beginner, but I highly recommend anyone interested in Buddhism or who is a Buddhist to listen to this wonderful teacher explain The Enlighment Engine of Tibetan Buddhism.
