Product Description

“Some of the most inspiring verses ever written.”—Geshe Thupten Jinpa, PhD, founder, Institute for Tibetan Classics

The Tibetan saint Tsongkhapa (1357-1419), the founder of the Dalai Lama's tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, was renowned for his vast learning, meditational achievements, influential writings on practice and philosophy, and reform of tantric religious practices. A deeply humble and religious man, he expressed himself in exquisite verse.

Here, presented in both the original Tibetan and in English translation, are twenty-one devotional poems by Tsongkhapa. Each verse--dedicated to the Buddha, bodhisattvas, and lamas--illuminates some aspect of the Buddhist path. Gavin Kilty's commentary places each prayer into context, and his careful, artful translations will appeal to anyone with a love of poetry.

About the Author

The Tibetan saint Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) is among the most influential figures in Tibetan Buddhism. The founder of the Gelug tradition, he was most renowned for the compilation of the Lamrim Chenmo (Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment) and the Ngagrim Chenmo (Great Treatise on Secret Mantra).

Gavin Kilty has worked as a translator and teacher of the Tibetan language since 1970. He teaches Tibetan and English, as well as Mahayana Buddhism, at various colleges in England.
