Category 2 : Tibetan Buddhism: Nyingma
Brand new. The main theme of this book is the union of Vajrayana and Dzogchen combined with mindfulness meditation. One of the prevalent misconceptions among Western practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism is that the tradition of mindfulness is somehow only a Theravada or Zen teaching, and is not essential for tantric, Dzogchen, or Mahamudra practice. The Nyingma master Anyen Rinpoche is adament that all Vajrayana practitioners should fully understand the crucial support that mindfulness brings to the practice of tantric meditation and especially to meditation that is free of all concepts. Without the foundation mindfulness provides, it is impossible to attain the results of these beneficial and profound forms of practice.

Another misconception is the usual Western understanding of the term "mindfulness" itself. Anyen Rinpoche felt that the practice of mindfulness has been understood too narrowly, and that many students had missed the true depth and meaning of this type of mind training. Without making the connection between mindfulness and Vajrayana, a rare opportunity to gain experience in the profound tantric tradition is lost. With this is mind, Rinpoche has clarified the confusion on this subject through the teachings in Momentary Buddhahood.

"Anyen Rinpoche offers a profound view of Dzogchen - and he shows how the experience of the mind's true nature is accessible to us at any time, yet nevertheless must still be cultivated through a lifetime of practice." Sam Van Schaik, author of Approaching the Great Perfection.

"Momentary Buddhahood clearly illuminates how mindfulness is a bridge between our everyday mind and realization, showing that the experience of enlightenment is possible in each moment." John Weber, Naropa University.

"A extraordinary book." Deborah Schoeberlein, author of Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness.
