The treasure of profound wisdom

by Khenchen Könchog Gyaltsen Rinpoche


Khenchen Könchog Gyaltsen's detailed commentary on the vajra chants provides a comprehensive insight into the profundity of these spontaneous compositions. This book is a valuable source and inspiration especially for those who want to consistently follow the path of the Buddha. Khenchen Rinpoche repeatedly invites us to think through and understand the teachings and to use them for meditation or our own lives. Spiritual teachings in the form of chants - direct expressions of profound wisdom and insight that reveal the nature of reality - have been preserved in India since the beginning of Buddhism. In 'The Treasure of Profound Wisdom', Khenchen Könchog Gyaltsen translates nine such chants by Jigten Sumgön and Milarepa and then explains them in contemporary language. Through his insights, Buddha's ancient wisdom is brought directly from the intellectual realm into our hearts. We are invited here into the world of transmission from master to disciple to discover the truth for ourselves and open the 'treasure of profound wisdom' that fully grasps the nature of reality. Khenchen Könchog Gyaltsen Rinpoche, founder of numerous Drikung Kagyu centers worldwide, is popular and highly respected as an experienced scholar, meditation master, translator and author. In 2001 he was given the great honor of being enthroned as Khenchen (great abbot).
