By Khenpo Ngawang Pelzang
Translated by Padmakara Translation Group
This guide provides readers with essential background information for studying and practicing with Patrul Rinpoche’s Words of My Perfect Teacher – a text that has, for more than a century, served as the reliable sourcebook to the spiritual practices common to all the major schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Khenpo Pelzang provides perspective on the role of teacher; the stages of the path; the view of the Three Jewels; Madhyamika, the basis of transcendent wisdom; and much more.
Khenpo Ngawang Pelzang (1879-1941) was a major teacher and abbot in the Nyingma Lineage of Buddhism in Tibet. He studied for years with a close disciple of Patrul Rinpoche, from whom he received direct instructions on how to study and practice with The Words of My Perfect Teacher.
