This meditation text belongs to the type of Buddhist literature known as "Shastra", a didactic commentary of the teachings of the Buddha. Divided into three sections, the work first deals with the suffering experienced by those immersed in a wordly life of attachment. The second section discusses solutions to this suffering, including various meditation practices. The third section shows how the results of these practices find expression in a daily life free from preoccupation with wordly affairs and in harmony with the teachings. In this edition this text is complemented by a modern commentary.
About the Author
Patrul Rinpoche (1808-1887) was one of the greatest Tibetan teachers of the nineteenth century. Famous for his precise and direct style, he shunned high monastic office and lived the life of a homeless wanderer, writing his book in a rustic hermitage under an overhanging rock.
