The Collected Works of Chögyam Trungpa brings together in eight volumes the writings of one of the first and most influential and inspirational Tibetan teachers to present Buddhism in the West. Organized by theme, the collection includes full-length books as well as articles, seminar transcripts, poems, plays, and interviews, many of which have never before been available in book form. From memoirs of his escape from Chinese-occupied Tibet to insightful discussions of psychology, mind, and meditation; from original verse and calligraphy to the esoteric lore of tantric Buddhism-the impressive range of Trungpa's vision, talents, and teachings is showcased in this landmark series. Volume Five focuses on the lineages of great teachers who have transmitted the Tibetan Buddhist teachings and on the practice of devotion to the spiritual teacher. It includes inspirational commentaries by Chögyam Trungpa on the lives of famous masters such as Padmasambhava, Naropa, Milarepa, Marpa, and Tilopa, as well as an excerpt from The Sadhana of Mahamudra, a tantric text that Chögyam Trungpa received as terma in 1968. Among the selected writings are "Explanation of the Vajra Guru Mantra," an article never before published, which deals with the mantra that invokes Guru Rinpoche; seminar talks available in book form for the first time; and previously unpublished articles on Milarepa.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,7, RWTH Aachen University (Lehrstuhl für Angewandte Sprachwissenschaften), course: Varieties of English, language: English, abstract: English is spoken all around the world. There is hardly any place in the world where you can not see or hear the impact English has on every part of our daily life. The English language also reshaped India's linguistic situation, since the first Englishman has reached 'Goa in October 1597' (Mehrotra 1998: 3). India has always been a multilingual country. Eighteen different Indian languages derived from the four language families 'Indo-European, Dravidian, Austro-Asiatic and Sino-Tibetan' (Mehrotra 1998:1). Hindi is spoken by most of the people but nevertheless there would not be a language shared by a major part of the population, if English had not entered the country in the 16th century. The English language became the lingua franca between Englishmen and Indians and later between the Indians themselves. In 1971 223,981 Indians stated that English is their mother tongue and it was estimated that about 25 million Indians speak English as a second language (cf. Mehrotra 1998: 1). This vast number shows the importance Indian English has for the world and the Indians themselves and therefore arouse my interest to give a description of the linguistic situation in India, and thereby going into detail as regards Indian English.

Since the occupation of Tibet by the Peoples Republic of China in 1959, former border principalities and feudatories of the former realm of the Dalai Lama have broken away and have developed sociopolitical and economic bonds with other states. Sikkim, Bhutan, Ladakh, and the Tibeto-Burman speaking regions of Burma, Nepal, and others have all developed strong ethnic identities apart from Tibet. Eleven well-known scholars working in these borderlands of Tibet present in this volume aspects of their current historical, linguistic, and ethnographic research. Originally presented at the Oxford University meeting of the International Association of Tibetan Studies in 2003, the volume provides a unique panoply of cultural diversity within the contemporary Tibeto-Burman speaking world. It is presented in an illustrated format, along with an introduction.
