Description About the author Contents
 
In Tibetan religious literature, Jamgon Kongtruls Treasury of Knowledge in ten books stands out as a unique encyclopedic masterpiece embodying the entire range of Buddhist teachings as it was preserved in Tibet.

Fundamentals of Buddhist Study and Practice comprises book seven and book eight, parts one and two of the Treasury of Knowledge. Book seven provides a detailed exposition of contemplation, which consists of reflecting repeatedly on the points one has already understood in order to deepen ones appreciation of them. It includes a lucid discussion of various interpretations of the meaning of emptiness. Once one has gained certainty about the teachings through hearing and contemplation, the logical next step is that of integrating them into one's experience through the process known as meditation. This is the main focus of book eight. Part one of book eight presents the practice of meditation as a twofold process comprising elements of calm abiding and a deeper awareness of the nature of reality. Part two of book eight treats the stages of meditation as these are described the sutra tradition that includes the three paths of the sravaka, the pratyekabuddha, and the bodhisattva.
