Description About the author Contents
The first Barway Dorje was a precious revealer of treasure and the rebirth of Nupchen Sangye Yeshe, one of Guru Padma's twenty-five disciples. Barway Dorje appeared in Tibet during the nineteenth century, and was praised and respected by the many holy beings of his time as an authentic treasure revealer. His many treasures include The Sadhanas of the Vidyadhara Guru, The Vajrakila Cycle, and The Dakini Cycle, all of which contain profound instructions pertaining to ripening and liberation. The previous Gyalwang Karmapa, Rikpe Dorje, displayed great interest in The Vajrakila Cycle in particular.

In addition to his treasures, Terchen Barway Dorje composed many works of his own that have been of great service to the essence teachings, such as his Barom Kagyu Mahamudra and Six Doctrines.

One handwritten edition of his biography exists, and is found in both India and Tibet. I am delighted that English and Chinese translations of it are being published, and I make the dedication and aspiration that this good work may plant the seed of liberation in beings.

His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje

From Precious Essence, "An Account of the Essence of This Life"

In the vast ocean of buddha nature
The little fish of mind itself, with the golden
eyes of awareness,
Flaps the six wings of the inner faculties.
The outer faculties move about in the ten
If the outer and inner retain this golden gleam
Object and subject are powerful and not two.
Self-awareness is the perfect buddha! emaho!
May this be realized by myself and all beings!
This was composed by Dechen Barway Dorje.
May all attain buddhahood."
