Torch of Certainty

Torch of Certainty - coverThe Torch of Certainty
— by Jamgon Kongtrul

Jamgon Kongtrul (1813–1899) was a versatile and prolific scholar. He has been characterized as a "Tibetan Leonardo" because of his significant contributions to religion, education, medicine, and politics.

Three eminent contemporary Tibetan Buddhist masters - Kalu Rinpoche, Deshung Rinpoche, and Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche - explain the significance of The Torch of Certainty  for modern-day students and practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism.

Mahakala and Palden Lhamo

This translation of a fundamental Tantric text reveals the richness and profundity of the intellectual and contemplative traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

The text describes the Four Foundation Practices that all practitioners of Vajrayana Buddhism must complete.

The nature of impermanence, the effects of karma, the development of an enlightened attitude, and devotion to the guru are among the subjects treated in this book.

    I was wondering if it was a good idea to share the link to your download offering of The Torch of Certainty. On the one hand, people might need to read it, on the other hand, I am not sure: Do you have licence to share if for download? Of course I would be super happy if you had. So please let me know.
    Best wishes,
