A Bolt of Lightning by Martin Boord

Through this translation, Martin Boord makes available for the first time in English the “Phur ‘grel ‘bum nag” and other related texts. The Phur ‘grel ‘bum nag is a series of explanations from Padmasambhava, Vimalamitra and Shilamanju. It was created by the three Acarya in Nepal more than twelve-hundred years ago, during a concentrated religious retreat, and was transmitted to Yeshe Tsogyal. This remarkable encyclopaedic text marks the beginning of the tantric Buddhist practice of the wrathful deity Vajrakila. It is the most important commentary to the rites of Kila. 412 pages; English, Sanskrit, Tibetan; 22 cm x 15 cm, sewn pages, hard cover; 59€, Wandel Verlag, 2010, ISBN: 978-3-942380-00-3 Continue reading
