Festschrift for Chögyal Namkhai Norbu

by Various

Book - 58.00€ (without VAT)


This volume, titled SHARRO, a Tibetan term meaning to arise, or to manifest, honors eminent scholar and spiritual master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu on the occasion of the thirty-fifth anniversary of Merigar, the first center of the International Dzogchen Community, founded by him in Tuscany, Italy.
Edited by Prof. Dr. Donatella Rossi and Dr. Charles Jamyang Oliphant, the book contains eighteen scholarly articles predominantly in Tibetan studies dedicated to Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and contributed by colleagues and disciples from around the world.
A wide range of Buddhist, Bon, and Dzogchen-related topics such as ritual, mythology, medicine, spiritual songs, iconography, textual analysis, and social organization, many including original translations from the Tibetan, are brought together and examined in this celebratory publication.

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, born 1938, was educated in the great Derge Gonchen Monastery in Eastern Tibet. He embodies the vast range of learning in the Tibetan tradition. The writings of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu arise from a lifetime’s work bringing together practice, teaching, and historical research. He has had a significant impact on numerous fields of Tibetan studies through his scholarly research, notably on Tibet’s early history. His books reveal as the major source of Tibetan civilization the ancient realm of Zhang Zhung and its pre-Buddhist culture.
This Festschrift is a token of appreciation for an extraordinary man who has dedicated his life to pursuing these areas of study through theoretical approach, reflection, and practical experience. He has distilled and generously transmitted his profound knowledge over the course of decades in the form of books, articles, public talks, and spiritual teachings.
