Description About the author Contents
 
His Holiness the Sakya Trichen, the forty-first head of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism, with his trademark clarity and deep wisdom here unpacks two texts by the legendary thirteenth-century Drogon Chogyal Phagpa. A founding father of the Sakya school, Chogyal Phagpa became the first imperial preceptor under Kublai Khan and thus converted the Mongols to Tibetan Buddhism. His two texts presented here, A Gift of Dharma to Kublai Khan and A Garland of Jewels - the second of which was written as advice for Prince Gibek Timur - are marvels of insight.

Freeing the Heart and Mind includes a biography of Chogyal Phagpa by Ngawang Kunga Sonam, himself an important Sakya throneholder. A Gift of Dharma to Kublai Khan and A Garland of Jewels are then presented in sparkling translation, each accompanied by penetrating commentary from His Holiness. Freeing the Heart and Mind takes these two texts, written initially for royalty, and reveals how their timeless lessons - how to meditate, the personal characteristics we should cultivate, and the states on the path to buddhahood - can be incorporated into our lives today.

Featuring a gorgeous full-color photo section, this book can be enjoyed either as the second volume in the course developed by His Holiness or as a stand-alone volume on its own merits.
