The Light of Wisdom free pdf The role of a Vajra Master in a student's spiritual development to clear away hindrances on the path and enhance self-realization forms the core of this final volume in the "Light of Wisdom" series. Padmasambhava, the lotus-born founder of Vajrayana Buddhism, established Buddhist doctrine in Tibet during the eighth century. He concealed teachings in the form of hidden treasures, to be revealed at an appropriate time in the future. The book is a combination of three texts: the root text, "The Gradual Path of the Wisdom Essence" comprising oral instructions of Padmasambhava, recorded by his chief female disciple, Yeshe Tsogyal- "The Light of Wisdom" by Jamgon Kongtrul, one of the most prominent Buddhist masters of nineteenth-century Tibet, an extensive commentary on this sacred scripture- and "Entering the Path of Wisdom," annotations on the commentary by Jamyang Drakpa, a student of Jamgon Kongtrul as dictated to the scholar Jokyab Rinpoche.

About Padmasambhava

PADMASAMBHAVA was the legendary tantric master who, at the invitation of King Trisong Deutsen, established Vajrayana Buddhism in Tibet in the ninth century. He hid innumerable Dharma treasures throughout Tibet, Nepal, and Bhutan to be revealed by destined disciples in the centuries to come. CHOKGYUR LINGPA (1829-70) is regarded as one of the major tertons in Tibetan history, and his termas are widely practiced by both the Kagyu and Nyingma schools. JAMGON KONGTRUL (1813-99) was a leader at the forefront of the nonsectarian rimey movement in the nineteenth century. Renowned as an accomplished master, scholar, and writer, he authored more than 188 volumes of scripture. JAMYANG KHYENTSE WANGPO (1820-92), the last of the five great tertons, was the master and teacher of all the Buddhist schools of Tibet and the founder of the nonsectarian rimey movement.
