The Marvellous Primordial State.

Post by Ekayano »

The Marvellous Primordial State is what it is, but it is also the title of a book to be published by Shang Shung Publications this summer. It is a translation of a tibetan text done by a group of translators under the supervision of CNN. I found the excerpts from the book so marvellous that I decided a donation to sponsor the book would be a fine thing to do. Info on the book, and the link for sponsoring it can be be found on the Shang Shung Publications homepage.
I have never heard of this text before, and the author is not mentioned, so it would be interesting with some more info. :twothumbsup:

Thanks for mentioning this Ekayano. I just made a small donation to sponsor the book as well.

If others wish to:

    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!

Been waiting for this to get published for a long time, they keep moving the date.

No idea. I will tell you sometime next week when I should get it, unless someone else gets it first or already has it.

No, only English translation. Basically foreword, preface, introduction, the Mejung Tantra itself, three appendices, notes, bibliography, and key terms in Tibetan and Sanskrit.

Bummer. Although on the other hand, it would get more expensive with that included.

It's not cheap but I don't think it's expensive either, seems about right to me. I actually wouldn't have been surprised if they had made it more expensive.
