A Profound Commentary of Oral Instructions on the Practice of Lama Chöpa

Kachen Yeshe Gyaltsen David Gonsalez

Highly informative and deeply moving, Manjushri’s Innermost Secret contains the entire path to enlightenment that was transmitted in direct communication with Lama Tsongkhapa by the wisdom-buddha Manjushri. This invaluable commentary provides an authoritative illumination of the Lama Chöpa ritual text for practitioners and is widely revered and commented upon in its own right.

Designed for those who have received the highest yoga tantra empowerment, these texts swiftly guide the spiritual practitioner to the state of complete enlightenment through the full spectrum of teachings on the lamrim and mind training (lojong). It also covers the generation and completion stages of highest yoga tantra, all of which are grounded in deep, heartfelt faith and devotion for one’s spiritual guide.

In addition to the Lama Chöpa ritual text itself, this book also includes the First Panchen Lama’s root text on Ganden Mahamudra, the supplication verses to the lineage gurus, and the Fifty Verses of Guru Devotion composed by the Indian saint Ashvagosha.

The Dechen Ling Practice Series from Wisdom Publications is committed to furthering the vision of David Gonsalez (Venerable Losang Tsering) and the Dechen Ling Press of bringing the sacred literature of Tibet to the West by making available many never-before-translated texts.
