Description Contents
 
The Kadma School, which emerged from the teachings of the Indian master Atisa and his principal student, Dromtonpa, is revered for its unique practical application of the bodhisattva's altruistic ideal in day-to-day life. One of the most well-known sets of spiritual teachings stemming from Atisa and Dromtonpa is a special collection of oral transmissions enshrined in the two-volume Book of Kadam (Bka' gdams glegs bam). The texts in this volume include the core texts of The Book of Kadam, notably the twenty-three-chapter dialogue between Atisa and Dromtonpa that is woven around Atisa's Bodhisattva's Jewel Garland. Sometimes referred to as the Kadam emanation scripture, The Book of Kadam is indisputedly one of the greatest works of Tibetan Buddhism. This volume contains (1) Atisa's Bodhisattva's Jewel Garland, (2) the twenty-three chapters of the Jewel Garland of Dialogues, (3) Dromtonpa's Self-Exhortation, (4) Elucidation of the Heart-Drop Practice by Khenchen Nyima Gyaltsen (1223 - 1305), (5) four selected chapters from Dromtonpa's birth stories, (6) two brief verse summaries of the Book of Kadam, one by the second Dalai Lama (1476-1542) and the other by Yongzin Yeshe Gyaltsen (1713-93), and (7) Sayings of the Kadam Masters, compiled by Chegom Sherap Dorje (ca. twelfth century). Although the Kadam school no longer exists as an autonomous lineage within Tibetan Buddhism, its teachings have become fully incorporated into the teachings of all four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, especially the Geluk School.
