Notă biografică

Migmar Tseten is a Buddhist chaplain at Harvard University. He leads retreats at Buddhist centers throughout North America. He founded the Sakya Institute in Cambridge, Mass., and has served as the head of the Sakya Retreat Center in Barre, Mass. He also served as the head of the Sakya Center in Rajpur, India, and the Sakya Monastery in Puruwalla, India, from 1981 to 1989.


"The Sakya Lineage, one of the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, is little known among English-speaking Buddhists. This collection aims to fill that void. . . . Tseten is well-positioned to bring these teachings to an audience with some awareness of Tibetan Buddhism; he is a Buddhist chaplain at Harvard University and founded the Sakya Institute in Cambridge, Mass. The book offers writings by important figures in the school, some ancient and others contemporary. Key Buddhist concepts frequently discussed include karma, emptiness, and compassion. An essay on Sakya history is especially helpful; the history of Buddhism from this school's view contains some interesting stories and variants."—Publishers Weekly

"I am sure the contents of this book will benefit many seekers of the profound truth. With my blessings for the success of all the noble efforts made toward propagating the peerless doctrine of the Enlightened One."—His Holiness Sakya Trizin

"This volume is a treasure of heart teachings on esoteric practices and philosophy, yogic songs, and training instructions, expounded by the greatest masters of the glorious Sakya lineage. These are invaluable provisions for all travelers of any Buddhist path."—Tulku Thondup Rinpoche, author of The Healing Power of Mind and Peaceful Death, Joyful Rebirth
