These companion volumes contain the root terma - hidden treasures text - of Padmasambhava, The Gradual Path of the Wisdom Essence and its commentary, The Light of Wisdom by Jamgon Kongtrul the Great.
Annotations on the commentary, Entering the Path of Wisdom, spoken by Jamyang Drakpa and recorded by Jokyab Rinpoche are included, as well as clarification from other masters. Both volumes present in-depth explanations of the Vajrayana Buddhist perspective.
Volume I begins with the nature of the ground, the buddha nature present in all beings, and continues with the teachings that are common to all vehicles. It concludes with the Mahayana and the link to Vajrayana.
