Editorial Reviews

H.H. the Dalai Lama
Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye was one of the leading scholars of the nineteenth century. He broke through sectarian constraints and achieved a deep understanding of the the different philosophical approaches in Tibet. I have no doubt that by studying Kongtrul's works readers will be inspired to emulate his great qualities of humility, dedication, patience and nonsectarianism.
The Mirror
In making a concerted effort to publish the works of translators and translation groups, Snow Lion Publications is playing an important role in the transmission of Buddhism to the West. Their commitment to publish major works such as this [Kongtrul's Treasury of Knowledge] will ensure that substantial portions of Tibetan Buddhist learning will become accessible to a wider range of Western students and practitioners.
Cornelia Weishaar-Gunter
Jamgon Kongtrul is considered to be one of the great leaders of the nonsectarian movement in Tibetan Buddhism, and his Treasury of Knowledge is considered to be one of the most important texts for reference and study in Tibetan Buddhism. Many Tibetan teachers have a compact edition of this monumental work in their travel bags in order to consult it again and again for detailed questions of all types, and not infrequently whole chapters serve as the basis for courses.
