Description
The Light of Wisdom, Vol. I, will be of special interest to students of Buddhism for its clear overview from a Vajrayana perspective of teachings particular to Hinayana and Mahayana Buddhism. Padmasambhava, known as the Second Buddha, is renowned for establishing the tantric teachings of Buddhism in Tibet during the ninth century. He predicted that his oral teachings, concealed in the form of termas, or "hidden treasures," would be revealed at an appropriate future time.

The Light of Wisdom is an extensive commentary on the above text, by Jamgon Kongtrul the Great, one of the most prominent Buddhist masters of nineteenth-century Tibet.

Entering the Path of Wisdom consists of annotations on the commentary by Jamyang Drakpa, a student of Jamgon Kongtrul, and recorded by Jokyab Rinpoche.

"The root text of Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo, a terma revealed by the great treasure-finder Chokgyur Lingpa, and its commentary by Kongtrul Rinpoche, the great translator in person, form tohether a complete scripture that embodies all the tantras, statements and instructions of the Nyingma School of the early translations, which is most rare to find in the past, present, or future."
— Kyabje Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche
