Like Dreams and Clouds

Emptiness & Interdependence
Mahamudra & Dzogchen

The Fourth book in the Heart Wisdom series, by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, will be available from early December. It is a beautiful and concise exploration of core topics of dharma practice which should interest new students and experienced practitioners alike.

Emptiness or Interdependence describes the key philosophical view of Buddhism. An experiential understanding of this is the basis for appreciating Buddhist teaching deeply. Ringu Tulku gives us a short, clear, step-by-step practical discussion of this central topic and looks at how it applies to our lives.

This teaching is combined in this edition with a revised edit of another favorite teaching by Ringu Tulku which was originally published as the first in the Heart Wisdom series. This covers Mahamudra and Dzogchen: approaches which provide skilful means and an overall path by which we can realize the true nature of ourselves, our world and all things – as none other than emptiness or interdependence.

This latest book of Rinpoche’s teachings is brought to you by a concerted effort of many students. With thanks to Margaret Ford for overseeing and coordinating the project to bring this teaching into concrete form and Paul O’Connor for continuing to provide inspiring layout for Rinpoche’s teachings. And with appreciation of the whole Bodhicharya Publications team, many of whom have contributed to this edition; and also all the students who organised teachings and took part in the gatherings this book came out of.

The book is available on Amazon here.
