The Diamond Cutter Book Excerpt:

With a unique combination of ancient and contemporary wisdom from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, The Diamond Cutter presents readers with empowering strategies for success in their work and personal lives. Geshe Michael Roach, one of the great teachers today of Tibetan Buddhism, has richly woven The Diamond Cutter in three layers. The first is a translation of selections from the Diamond Sutra itself, an ancient text comprised of conversations between the Buddha and his close disciple Subhuti. Considered a central work by Buddhists throughout the world, the Diamond Sutra has been the focus of much interpretation over the centuries. In the second layer, Geshe Michael quotes from some of the best commentaries of the Tibetan tradition. In the main text, the third layer, he uses both sutra and commentary as a jumping-off point for presenting his own teaching. Geshe Michael gives fresh insight into ancient wisdom by using examples from his own experience as one of the founders of the Andin International Diamond Corporation, which was started with capital of fifty thousand dollars and which today has annual sales in excess of one hundred million dollars. Much of the success of Andin has come from applying the business strategies presented in The Diamond Cutter. Geshe Michael's easy style and spiritual understanding make this work of timeless wisdom an invaluable source for those already familiar with, and those unfamiliar with, Tibetan Buddhism.

The Diamond Cutter Sutra Book Excerpt:

Khenpo Sodargye translates and provides commentary on the Diamond Cutter Sutra, the oldest printed book in China, shedding light on the Buddha’s teachings on how to destroy attachment without being led astray; the author is a household name in China and his books and CDs sell in the millions in China. In the profound teachings of the Diamond Cutter Sutra, the Buddha offers a view of the world that deconstructs our normal categories of experience to show us that what we think are real entities in the world are actually our conceptualizations. The Buddha teaches us to cut our attachment to all phenomena and to the “I,” which are empty of inherent existence, and in so doing, cut the root cause of our suffering. Yet without wise guidance we may think that because all phenomena are empty there is no need to be attached to virtue, and thus we fall into the worst trap of all—an attachment to emptiness. How do we destroy our attachment without being led astray? With this question in mind, Dzogchen Master Khenpo Sodargye provides sparkling commentary on the Diamond Cutter Sutra so that we understand its actual meaning, thus preparing us to understand the view of the Great Perfection and Mahamudra. Before recognizing the nature of the mind, we learn we must hold on to things that are virtuous and right. Like a boat, these can help us cross a river; until we reach the other shore, it makes no sense to give them up.

Summary of Geshe Michael Roach Lama Christie McNally s The Diamond Cutter Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The Diamond Cutter is an ancient book of Buddhist wisdom that was taught by the Buddha over 2,500 years ago. It was passed down by word of mouth, and then inscribed onto long palm leaves. The books were kept wrapped in cloths. #2 The Diamond Cutter, written by a Tibetan Lama named Choney Drakpa Shedrup, was translated into English by a group of colleagues and me. It is the first time this important explanation has ever been translated into English. #3 The Diamond Cutter explains the secret wisdom behind the title. Diamonds represent a hidden potential in all things, and a businessperson who is aware of this potential can attain success in both financial and personal terms. #4 The Diamond Cutter teaches you how to see the potential hidden in every person and thing around you. It is this potential which, if harnessed, leads to personal and business success.

Sunlight on the Path to Freedom Book Excerpt:

The Diamond Cutter Sutra is one of the most famous Buddhist books of all time; it was taught by the Buddha 25 centuries ago, and then spread throughout India, China, Tibet, Japan, and many other countries. The Chinese edition seen here is the oldest printed book in the world with a date inside.The sutra focuses on the concept of emptiness, which is a key to success and happiness in the modern world, if we get a good explanation of how to apply it at work and at home. Emptiness has been widely misunderstood though, throughout history--and there are very few clear explanations of the Diamond Cutter. Perhaps the best ever written is Sunlight on the Path to Freedom, by Choney Lama Drakpa Shedrup, a Tibetan sage who lived 1675-1748.Our first complete woodblock manuscript for this masterpiece was discovered in the Oriental Library of the Russian Academy of Sciences by staff of the Asian Classics Input Project. The translation is the first ever undertaken into English of this crucial text, and includes a wonderful summary on the idea of emptiness, and how this can be used in real life.

The day, he attends Sophie's new project proposal. She nicknames it "The Diamond Project." Mason notices something different in the way Sophie presents the project. He can't put his finger on it. He asks if she'll explain it over lunch. One lunch turns into a series of lunches as Sophie shares how she became a "diamond miner." Join Mason as he follows Sophie's lead.

Teachings from the Medicine Buddha Retreat Book Excerpt:

Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave these teachings during a Medicine Buddha retreat held at Land of Medicine Buddha in Soquel, California, from October 26 to November 17, 2001. Edited by Ailsa Cameron, this book covers an amazing range of topics. From a review in BuddhaDharma magazine: Teachings From the Medicine Buddha Retreat is a nearly complete record of the teachings given by Lama Zopa Rinpoche during a twenty-five day Medicine Buddha retreat in the fall of 2001. The sections are short, on topics such as making offerings to the buddhas and the nature of mind. The retreat was held less than two months after the 9/11 attacks, and Lama Zopa's teachings are full of references to terrorism, war, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The book is not meant as a coherent presentation on any particular topic; however, one is rewarded by just opening it and reading anywhere. Lama Zopa is a clear and effective teacher, and his stories are endlessly entertaining and inspiring. This book is made possible by kind supporters of the Archive who, like you, appreciate how we make these teachings freely available in so many ways, including in our website for instant reading, listening or downloading, and as printed and electronic books.

Black Diamond Reset Book Excerpt:

We have always associated blackness with failure, negativity, and witchcraft. We have always associated darkness with less than, disapproval, and unattractiveness. We have always associated blackness with inequality, injustice, and incrimination. However, it is in the midst of the darkness that things began to adapt and organize. It is in the middle of the night that things start to grow and develop. It is in the midst of the darkness that things ultimately reproduce as in the story of the Black Diamond.
