Published Works by Erick Tsiknopoulos

The following is an incomplete list of some of the published works and translations of Erick Tsiknopoulos which have been published on paper or electronic formats for the widespread availability or sale to the general public, or else within certain organizations, either as printed documents, books or online. This list is currently in progress, and presently serves only as an introduction to works which were published until October 2018.

For the most part, this list does not include the currently over 160 titles published on Amazon, which mostly consist of translations previously published on this website. You can view the Amazon author page here

It should be noted that Erick Tsiknopoulos has also translated almost all of the main practices from the Heart Sphere of Yuthok (g.yu thog snying thig), and has in total translated about 2/3 of the entire collection of texts related to the Yuthok Nyingthik cycle. This work was undertaken from 2012 to 2018 under the guidance of native Tibetan scholars of Buddhism and Tibetan medicine, mostly while living in India and using the educational resources of the Tibetan community in Dharamsala and the Esukhia Institute, and was funded by a university in the United States. All of these translations are planned for publication in the future, and eventually the entire Heart Sphere of Yuthok collection will be published in separate volumes.
