Author: Padmasambhava and Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye
A commentary by Jamgon Kongtrul the Great on the `Gradual Path of the Wisdom Essence', a record of the oral teachings of Padmasambhava as recorded by his chief female disciple Yeshe Tsogyal. The Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo, a terma, or hidden treasure text of Padmasambhava revealed by the great terton Chokgyur Lingpa, is presented here along with annotations to the commentary Entering the Path of Wisdom spoken by Jamyang Drakpa and recorded by Jokyab Rinpoche as well as clarifications from other masters.
Volume one includes in-depth explanations of the Vajrayana Buddhist perspective. It begins with the nature of the ground, the Buddha nature present in all beings, continues with the teachings common to all vehicles, and concludes with the Mahayana and the link to the Vajrayana.
"The root text of Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo and its commentary by Kongtrul Rinpoche, the great translator in person, form together a complete scripture that embodies all the tantras, statements and instructions of the Nyingma school, which is most rare to find in the past, present, or future." ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
