Description Contents
 
The present work is the cornerstone of our Jey Yabsey Sungbum Collection, a subset of our Treasury of the Buddhist Sciences series. Compromised of the collected work of Tsong Khapa Losang Drakpa (1357-1419) and His Spiritual Sons, Gyaltsap Darma Rinchen (1364-1432) and Khendrup Gelek Pelsang (1385-1438), this Collection is a voluminous set of independent Tibetan treatises and super commentaries, all based on the thousands of works contained in the Kangyur and Tengyur Collections.
The Brilliant Illumination of the Lamp of the Five Stages (Rim Inga rab tu gsal ba'i sgron me) is Tsong Khampa's most important commentary on the perfection stage practices of the Esoteric Community (Guhyasamaja), the Tantra he considered fundamental for the practice of the "Father Tantra" class of Unexcelled Yoga Tantras. It draws heavily on Nagarjuna's Five Stages (Pancakrama) and Aryadeva's Lamp the integrates the Practices (Caryamelapakapradipa),as well as a vast range of perfection stage works included in the Tibetan Kangyur and Tengyur collections. It is an important work for both scholars and practitioners. An annotated translation is supplemented with extensive glossaries and other support material. A companion volume of the critically edited Tibetan text, annotated with the found quoted from Tengyur and Kangyur texts in Tibetan and Sanskrit where available, will soon be published in a limited edition, and as an e-book.
