A treasure that sheds some light on the lineage, and the masters. With knowledge like this so hard to come by, it can help bring the Teachers to life. A must-read, and keep.

Tulku Thondup's book is a great contribution to English language resources on Tibetan Buddhism. The background information in the introduction and footnotes is extensive and provides what scholars and neophytes alike would need to know about Vajrayana Buddhism in general, and the Nyingma tradition in particular, in order to better understand and appreciate the sacred biographies of great masters that are collected here. The life-stories themselves are redolent of the spirit of enlightenment, and as the title suggests, abound in descriptions of meditational experience and miraculous events. This is a good book for Buddhist practitioners, because it shows the true meaning of discipline and devotion, as exemplified by the lives of great masters.

Though the life-stories are not all told chronologically, as tends to be the case with Western sacred biographies, this also tends to be true of the original Tibetan biographies. Tulku Thondup, with the skillful editorship of Harold Talbot, has done a great service in navigating many difficult and rare primary sources in Tibetan language, and compiling and translating these stories from them.

A small word of caution regarding the first book review above, frank@philos.rug.nl from Groningen, Holland. Tulku Thondup's book has little if anything to do with Phowa. The Phowa or "transference of consciousness" taught by Ole Nydahl is a distinct practice of the Karma Kagyu tradition (though it is found in similar forms elsewhere, including the Nyingma traditions such as the Longchen Nyingthig). The Nyingthig tradition is much more than just Phowa, so the two should not be confused, as our Dutch friend suggests here. Those interested in the Kagyu tradition of Phowa can learn something of its transmission in another excellent example of Tibetan sacred biography in translation, _The Life of Marpa the Translator_, Shambhala (1995 et. al.).

Tulku Thondup presents here the biographies of 36 Tibetan Buddhist Masters. They belong to the Longchen Nyingthig tradition which is currently one of the most well known and practiced among Western followers of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.

The Introduction and first chapters explain the setting of the Longchen Nyingthig tradition within Tibetan Buddhism and Buddhism as a whole, and give detailed lineage lists. Then follow the biographies, the heart of the book.

These life-stories vary greatly - some are brief and others run to many pages. Some of the masters lived over a thousand years ago while others are still alive now. But each story is told with simplicity and freshness that help the reader to connect with these masters. As Tulku Thondup says in his Preface, "If the lives are read in order to feel and unite with the experiences of the masters, the stories will certainly arouse spiritual realization, love, peace, openness, light, and healing in the reader's heart."
