Translated by Ken Holmes

A translation of the classic Jewel Ornament of Liberation by Gampopa. For some 800 years this masterly overview of the Buddha's teachings has served as a handbook for followers of the twelve Kagyu traditions which all stem from Gampopa's disciples. Placing the quintessential meaning of hundreds of Buddhist scriptures in the palm of one`s hand, it provides an ideal resource for those new to Buddhism and is an invaluable reference work for experienced practitioners.

This translation is the result of fifteen years of study under distinguished tutors of the Kagyu tradition, and conveys the meaning of Gampopa`s text as it has been traditionally taught down the centuries.

Gampopa was a saintly monk and accomplished scholar, who after training with the original Kadampa masters was inspired to seek out Tibet`s famous yogi Milarepa - under whose guidance he attained enlightenment. The Jewel Ornament of Liberation from this forefather of the Kagyu tradition contains a wealth of knowledge, presented through the lucidity and authority of a truly enlightened mind.
