Gampopa's Four Dharmas is closely related to his Jewel Ornament of Liberation, a text that deals with the stages in our spiritual development. First you begin to discover the Dharma, then you make a good job of it, then the Dharma becomes applicable on the path so you begin to clarify confusion on the path, and finally you transmute that confusion into wisdom.

It is through the kindness of the master, Lord Marpa, and his disciples that there could be a Dakpo Kagyu Lineage and moreover that what we call Kagyu Monlam could even happen, so we should remember their lives and examples. It was especially Gampopa who upheld this lineage by being a fine exemplar of monasticism and who turned the wheel of dharma in a vast way. He said to his students of future generations, "I ask all the people of the future who are devoted to me but they cannot meet me to please read the works I have written, such as A Precious Garland of the Supreme Path and the Ornament of Liberation. It will be no different from meeting me personally."
