This major Tibetan Buddhist guide to meditation was composed in the sixteenth century by an eminent lama of the Kagyu lineage and is so comprehensive and practical that it is still widely used today as a manual. Divided into two major sections, it presents first the common approach and then the mahamudra approach to calm abiding (shamatha) and insight (vipashyana) meditation.

Dakpo Tashi Namgyal (1511-1587), a lineage holder of the Drukpa Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism who also trained in the Sakya lineage, was renowned as both a scholar and meditator. During his later years he served as chief abbot of Daklha Gampo in southern Tibet.

Lobsang P. Lhalungpa was born in Lhasa, Tibet in 1926. From 1940 until 1952, he was a monk-official in the service of His Holiness the fourteenth Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government. He is also the translator of The Life of Milarepa. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
