Overview


This
commentary on Padampa Sangye's classic verses of advise to Tibetan villagers of
Tingri—by renowned and beloved meditation master Dilgo Khyentse—offers
guidance for people trying to lead a dharmic life in the workaday world. These
hundred verses, studied for centuries by Tibetans and students of Buddhism,
contain a complete survey of the Tibetan Buddhist path. Dilgo Khyentse's lively
explication of each stanza brings to light subtleties and amplifies the
richness of the words and their pertinence to our lives. These two venerable
teachers advise us in relating to everyday difficulties such as loneliness,
craving, family squabbles, competition in business, disagreements with
neighbors, and betrayal by friends—as challenging to us as they have been to
meditators for centuries.

Meet the Author

The Padmakara Translation Group, based in France, has a distinguished reputation for all its translations of Tibetan texts and teachings. Its work has been published in several languages and is renowned for its clear and accurate literary style.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910–1991) was a highly accomplished meditation master, scholar, and poet, and a principal holder of the Nyingma lineage. His extraordinary depth of realization enabled him to be, for all who met him, a foundation of loving-kindness, wisdom, and compassion. A dedicated exponent of the nonsectarian Rime movement, Khyentse Rinpoche was respected by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism and taught many eminent teachers, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He tirelessly worked to uphold the Dharma through the publication of texts, the building of monasteries and stupas, and by offering instruction to thousands of people throughout the world. His writings in Tibetan fill twenty-five volumes.

Padampa Sangye was an eleventh-century Indian yogi and spiritual master (known also as Kamalashila) who traveled widely throughout his life and brought Indian Buddhist teachings to China and Tibet.

Read an Excerpt

The very thing you feel attached to, let go of it, whatever—
People of Tingiri, there isn't anything you need.

· · ·

Think of any person, any object, or situation about which you feel strong grasping or possessiveness, and try to look clearly at the beauty, power, or wealth to which you are so attached. Examine each of them down to the very foundation. Do they not seem like illusions? When you look at things in this way, your attachments diminish and you no longer feel the same pressing need to possess them. If you take the attitude, "I don't need anything!" your state of mind will be naturally free and serene.
