This website buddhavisions.com and Buddha Visions Press are designed to be effective resources to catalyze the spread and practice of rare and special Buddhist teachings and meditation techniques. The texts presented here and in the bookstore were translated with the support of sangha, family, and friends, under the guidance of very kind teachers. There are a number of editors that worked tirelessly on these texts over the past decade, whose work was essential to making these translations what they are. To those who supported these translations and helped in the process, there is endless appreciation. It is difficult to perfectly capture the essence of the meaning of these materials composed by wise and realized meditators of the past. Still, these translations are being humbly offered here with the hope that they will be of at least some benefit to those who seek to practice and learn more about these vast traditions. While many of these teachings may have been kept secret in the past, Tibetan originals are now widely available. The secrecy of these teachings in the past was intended to ensure that these were transmitted accurately with care. The offering of these materials in English is not to discourage anyone from studying, contemplating, and meditating upon these in traditional contexts, but to instead transparently catalyze authentic transmissions of the dharma from qualified teachers and the practice of such. Please use these wisely and enjoy.
