Vajrayana and the Great Perfection

By Jigme Lingpa
Translated by The Padmakara Translation Group
Foreword by H. H. The Dalai Lama
Commentary by Longchen Yeshe Dorje and Kangyur Rinpoche

This book is a translation of the second part of a commentary on the Treasury of Precious Qualities, the most celebrated work of Jigme Lingpa (1730 – 1798), one of the most important figures in the Nyingma lineage. This precious text is one to deeply read and study throughout one's lifetime.

In a slender volume of elegant verse, this root text (new in this revised edition) presents the entire Buddhist path according to the Nyingma school. Because it is so concise and makes use of elaborate poetic language, the commentary is indispensable.

Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa was a great master of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. As the root of the Khyentse lineage, he was a tertön, or discoverer of treasure teachings, and revealed the Longchen Nyingtik, one of the most important cycles of meditative practice in the Nyingma school.
