La otra piel

Merecedor del Premio Bellas Artes Juan Rulfo para Primera Novela, La otra piel, es una novela de viaje y de introspección, a un tiempo histórica e intimista, en la que los secretos de una familia mexicana son la clave para descifrar el sentido de las comunas anarquistas del siglo XX. "Tu madre es Sophie Lenz. Vivió en Ascona": ésta es la confesión…

Machik developed a system, the Mahamudra Chöd, that takes the Buddha's teachings as a basis and applies them to the immediate experiences of negative mind states and malignant forces. Her unique feminine approach is to invoke and nurture the very "demons" that we fear and hate, transforming those reactive emotions into love. It is the tantric version of developing compassion and fearlessness, a radical method of cutting through ego-fixation.

This expanded edition includes Machik Lapdrön's earliest known teaching, the original source text for the tradition, The Great Bundle of Precepts on Severance (Chöd). This pithy set of instructions reveals that the teachings of the perfection of wisdom are the true inspiration for Chöd. It is beautifully clarified in a short commentary by Rangjung Dorje, the Third Karmapa.
