In "A Precious Garland" Gampopa gives precise instructions on the correct view, meditation and conduct, and succinctly outlines in 28 categories what we need to know in order to perfect our spiritual practice. This commentary by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche expands on the pithy instructions and offers frank answers to common questions concerning obstacles to Dharma practice.
The Precious Garland is one of the masterworks of Gampopa, father of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism and foremost student of the great yogi Milarepa. According to Kathar Rinpoche, for those with faith in Gampopa studying this text can be "exactly the same as receiving teachings directly from him."
