Published: November 15, 2013 The Tibetan Yoga of Breath
pairs the teachings of Tibetan Yantra Yoga (breathing yoga) with select contemplative ideas and practices and examines how well they complement each other through the lens of Western medical science.

Momentary Buddhahood: Mindfulness and the Vajrayana Path
Published: October 1, 2009 In this book, esteemed scholar Anyen Rinpoche dispels a common misconception among Western Vajrayana Buddhists: that mindfulness is a Zen teaching and thus not essential for tantric practice. Rinpoche is adamant that Vajrayana practitioners should fully understand the crucial support that mindfulness brings to the practice of tantric meditation, especially to Dzogchen meditation. He also clarifies the concept of mindfulness itself, giving it the true depth and meaning that is often lost in Western teachings.
The Union of Dzogchen and Bodhichitta
Published: April 26, 2006 An illuminating explanation of how the Tibetan Buddhist practices of Dzogchen and Bodhichitta interface and complement one another. Through demonstrating the interrelationship of the outer, inner, and secret teachings and a textual analysis of the words of four renowned Dzogchen yogis, it makes clear that the practice of Bodhichitta is a necessary aspect of every practice within Tibetan Buddhism. Unlike other books that present either the teachings of Bodhichitta or the teachings of Dzogchen as their own system of practice, this book presents them not even as complementary practices, but as a deconstructed inner and outer which are fundamentally intertwined.
