As some of you may know, I have been diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. I have been receiving treatments for the last two years, but as of yesterday I had to stop the chemotherapy indefinitely due to the damage it is causing my liver. At this point the doctors are uncertain as to how long it will take for the cancer to actually end my life.
This puts Dechen Ling Press in a challenging position. We are still $7,500 in debt for Ecstatic Dance and $4,500 in debt for Healing Nectar and Secret Revelations, and still have four more books to publish: 1) Kachen Yeshe Gyaltsen’s commentary on Lama Chopa, 2) Ngulchu Dharmabadra’s commentary on the Six Yogas of Naropa, 3) Yangchen Drupai Dorje’s commentary on the extensive dedication prayers for Vajrayogini, and 4) Pabongkha Rinpoche’s commentary on Je Tsongkhapa’s Middle-Length Lamrim.
All of these books are completely translated and ready to be put through the publishing process; however, we don’t have the money required to publish them. We are in need of at least $50,000 to get all four books published. We could have all of them published and available for purchase within six to eight months, with a new title coming out every couple of months, if we had the money available.
If we don’t get the funds to publish these books while I am still alive, the chances of getting them published are extremely slim. We have a situation in place to ensure that once they are published, they will continue to be available for a very long time into the future; however, we first need to get them published. (I have also written a brief autobiography that could be published last if funding permits.)
Dechen Ling Press is looking to our readers for help in getting these titles published. Since it is readers like you who will benefit from the publication of these amazing texts, we are asking for your support in getting them published and into the hands of those that will truly benefit.
