After achieving supreme attainment in India, Mahasidda Padampa Sangye traveled to Tibet and settled in Dingri in the Xizang Province near Mt. Everest. After teaching in that area for many years, Padampa Sangye returned to India. Prior to leaving Dingri he taught eighty verses of advice (sometimes split into 100 verses) to his disciples. These verses provide profound advice relevant to any dharma practitioner. The first verse summarizes the entire set of teachings, advising us not to waste our lives on mundane pursuits, but rather to direct all of our resources to practicing the dharma.

The verses then begin by explaining why it makes no sense to hold on to our attachments to mundane possessions, family, friends and even our body, as well as why we should cultivate loving kindness and compassion for all sentient beings. These introductory verses lay the groundwork for an extensive and profound teaching on the only thing we can rely on -- the ultimate nature of mind, thoughts, emotions and phenomena. These verses use many skillful analogies to explain the ultimate nature. This teaching is brilliant. The talk on the verses that explain the ultimate nature merits repeated viewing. Lama Yeshe Gyamtso provides superb translation. These audio recordings have been edited in the "Mainly English" format. (click on image for details)
