Buddhist Ethics (Treasury of Knowledge) book 5

Auteur: : Kongtrul Jamgon


THE TREASURY OF KNOWLEDGE- Book Five: Buddhist Ethics
by Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé, trans. by the Kalu Rinpoche Translation Group, under the direction of Ven. Bokar Rinpoche

Book Five, Buddhist Ethics, is considered by many scholars to be the heart of Jamgön Kongtrul's Treasury of Knowledge. Kongtrul explains here the complete code of personal liberation as it applies to both monastic and lay persons, the precepts for those aspiring to the life of a bodhisattva, and the exceptional pledges for practitioners on the tantric path of pure perception.

"Upon seeing the Treasury of Knowledge, the first Khyentse Rinpoche, a contemporary of Lodro Thaye, said that it was so inclusive of all knowledge that it did not seem to be composed by a human being, but must have been written through the blessing of the dakinis."—Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

"In Tibetan religious literature, Jamgon Kongtrul's Treasury of Knowledge in ten books stands out as a unique encyclopedic masterpiece embodying the entire range of Buddhist teachings as it was preserved in Tibet. This volume is Book Five of that work and is considered by many scholars to be its heart.... It provides a clearly structured and lucid exposition of the qualities of spiritual teachers and their students, as well as of the ethical systems of Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana Buddhism."—The Indian International Journal of Buddhist Studies

"Both the Tibetan original and the English translation are exemplary in their lucidity... an incredible resource for all serious students of Tibetan Buddhism."—Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D., is the author over 40 books on yoga and health, including Yoga Morality: Ancient Teachings at a Time of Global Crisis, The Deeper Dimension of Yoga, Holy Madness: Spirituality, Crazy-Wise Teachers, and Enlightenment, and Shambhala Encyclopedia of Yoga
