Book Description

This second and concluding volume of Jigme Lingpa’s classic Treasury of Precious Qualities is presented together with a detailed commentary by Kangyur Rinpoche. Composed in the form of a lamrim, or presentation of the stages of the path, the first volume set out the teachings of the sutras. The present volume continues this same structure and is a general description of the tantra teachings followed by an exposition of the Great Perfection, which in the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism is regarded as the summit of all vehicles and the final stage of the path of spiritual training. The section on the tantras is a compendious presentation of all important issues: lineage, empowerment, the generation and perfection stages, and samaya. The section on the Great Perfection is arranged according to the classification of Ground, Path, and Result and gives an extremely clear introduction to the doctrinal background that underpins the practice of this unique system.

This text is phenomenal and, for anyone who has received the appropriate teachings and initiations from a qualified master, is a must have. On the other hand, if you happen to be one of the self taught experts that seep through every nook and cranny nowadays and have not received these essential prerequisites, this text represents a poison which drives one to the misery of the lower realms for a seeming eternity-Your call, big boy

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection 5 Nov. 2013
By Pacific9 - Published on
What can I say about a text by the great Jigme Lingpa and a commentary by the incredible Kangyur Rinpoche (father of Tulku Pema Wangyal and Jigme Khyentse) on the most profound subject possible and deftly translated by what I - and many - regard as the pinnacle of translators. This is a text to study and study. A desert island book, though hopefully if I end up on what it is with a lama who can instruct me on the finer points!

5.0 out of 5 stars but wonderful all the same 14 Mar. 2015
By Katherine F. Wheeler - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A dense book, not for beginners, but wonderful all the same. The paper edition is the easier to work with. Somehow in the Kindle edition there is not enough indexing and the text is one huge piece, which made it difficult to navigate to sections or understand the overall shape. But of course, Kindle's portable.
