The Dark Red Amulet: Vajrakilaya Practice

Postby Sherab Rigdrol » Sat Mar 23, 2013 7:50 pm

Check out the price inflation!

http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Red-Amulet-I ... red+amulet

What are your thoughts on reselling/selling a dharma book of this nature at those prices?

Also, if anyone is in need of a copy they have one for a normal price at my local bookstore which I'd be more than happy to pick up for someone. I picked up my copy today after I found out the prices skyrocketed on Amazon.

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

-Longchenpa

Or you can purchase it directly from Rinpoches' main US center's book store here for $17: http://www.padmasambhava.org/cart/catal ... 74d9c0a50f

An amazing book for those wishing to practice Kilaya, especially Tsasum Lingpa Kilaya.

I wouldn't ever buy anything from Amazon ever. They don't pay their taxes. If you're going to buy Dharma books, buy them from Dharma people.

Not sure about this, I checked the other day and their site listed it as out of stock. Maybe it is in between printings which explains the inflation...

What happens is that when a book goes out of print, especially from a small press,
is it get labeled as a rare book and gets priced as if there are olny a few dozen in circulation.

According to the PBC website, it will be republished by Shambhala some time in the near future.

It might still be available as an E-book, as my copy is the one on my kindle.
Phenomenon, vast as space, dharmata is your base, arising and falling like ocean tide cycles, why do i cling to your illusion of unceasing changlessness?

Once again if anyone is desperate for a copy I'd be more than happy to pick one up for you!
