About this title

Synopsis:

THE BRILLIANCE OF NAKED MIND tells of the secret visions of the legendary warrior, Gesar, King of Ling. It is a collection of stories and invocations that are the ground for Gesar, King of Ling’s pursuit of enlightened society. The texts include vivid biographies of Tilopa, embodiment of lineage; Kukkuripa, embodiment of compassion; the sisters Mehkhala and Kanhala, essence of unified devotion and prajna; and King Indrabhuti, exemplar of enlightened sovereignty. These are followed by an extensive account of all the rulers of the Kingdom of Shambhala which concludes: “Shambhala opens, In the unchanging now of heart-light. To which you always return.” The texts are loosely bound together in a retelling of Gesar’s conquest of the Demon Lord, Satham, King of Jang. They are aspects of the myriad worlds he passes through. Each world contains its own wakefulness for Gesar and for us to discover.

From the Back Cover:

"Douglas Penick continues his journeys into the visionary world of Gesar of Ling, this time relating Gesar's defeat of the Demon King Satham, and revealing his memories and dreams of (or identity with) several great figures of Buddhist history, followed by the future Kings of Shambhala. In that realm of awareness, where time and place collapse into an ever-present nowness and hereness, the sense of limited individuality is transcended, and one's participation in the whole of existence becomes clear. This is what Gesar himself must experience in order to overcome the demonic force of ego represented by Satham. Within this web of interconnection, certain particular affinities may stand out as part of the continual display that spontaneously arises for the benefit of living beings, suffering in the world of illusion. Telling these stories is a vital, and still living, strand of the tradition, which has the power to inspire and guide us in the darkness and confusion of daily life". - Dr. Francesca Fremantle translator (with Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche) of The Tibetan Book of the Dead and author of Luminous Emptiness.
