The Meditator’s Nest (2 Volumes)


The Meditator's Nest: Building a spiritual practice (Oral teachings on the essentials of the Buddhist path)

Volume 1

Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin

Drawing from his scholastic and contemplative training, as well as his personal understanding of modern life, Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin offers excellent guidance to both beginners and experienced practitioners on the Buddha's way.

Based on the pith instructions transmitted in the Sakya tradition, such as the Lamdré teachings on The Three Visions and the instructions on Parting from the Four Attachments, as well as the Indian classics of Buddhist philosophy like Shantideva's The Way of the Bodhisattva and Chandrakirti's Introduction to the Middle Way, the teachings offered in this book show us how to integrate both elements - theory and practice - in a most meaningful way on our path.

Together with The Meditator's Nest , Vol. 2: A Mahayana Meditation Manual, this book forms a set, a precious companion for those travelling the path to awakening.

Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin is the abbot of Tsechen Dongag Choeling, a Sakya monastery in Mundgod, South India. He studied under the late Khenchen Appey Rinpoche at Sakya College, where he also taught for several years, and completed a three-year retreat under the guidance of H.E. Chogye Trichen Rinpoche.

Since 2001 Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin has been teaching philosophy and meditation at the International Buddhist Academy in Kathmandu, Nepal.

DHL Receiver’s Guide to Duties and Taxes, Goods Purchased Online for Personal Use
You may be charged customs duties and taxes for something purchased online because:

Duties and taxes are most typically not included in the price of the goods you purchase online, and might not be included in the overall shipping costs you pay to the online retailer.
When purchasing goods online, some or all of these goods may not originate in the country you reside in, therefore are subject to a customs duty, which is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders.
When goods are not shipped domestically (within your country) or within a single customs union, such as the European Union, you are liable to pay any inbound duties and taxes which your local customs authority deems appropriate.
To ensure the DHL courier can deliver your goods in shortest possible time after entering your country or customs union, DHL pays the customs authority on your behalf for any duties and taxes that are due on the goods.
Once the duties and taxes are fully repaid to DHL the goods will be delivered to you What is payable, if anything, depends on where the goods are sent from, the type of goods, their transactional value and the weight of the package
