Description About the author Contents
 
In the words of Gampopa: "To all future individuals devoted to me who think they cannot meet me: Please read the treatises composed by me, such as Precious Garland and The Ornament of Precious Liberation. It will be no different from meeting me personally." Since he has said this, you fortunate ones devoted to Lord Gampopa, please be diligent in the propagation of these texts.

Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche came to the United States in 1976 at the request of His Holiness the Sixteenth Karmapa to estabilsh the North American seat of the Karma Kagyu Lineage. Under Rinpoche's guidance over twenty-five affiliated centers have formed, and the magnificent Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Monastery in Woodstock, New York was constructed.

In his first book, Dharma Paths, Rinpoche demonstrated his lucid teaching style, which delivers profound insights in language that is direct and inspiring. In this commentary on the Precious Garland, one of the masterworks of Gampopa, Rinpoche outlines in twenty-eight categories what practioners of varying levels need to know in order to perfect their spiritual practice. He gives precise instructions on the correct view, meditation and conduct, and offers frank answers to common questions concerning obstacles to Dharma practice.

Gampopa (1070-1153), the father of the Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, was the foremost student of the great yogi Milarepa. Among his many writings the two most influential are The Jewel Ornament of Liberation and A Precious Garland of the Supreme Path. As Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche points out in his commentary to the Precious Garland, for those with faith in Gampopa, studying his text can be "exactly the same as receiving teachings directly from him."
