- The Treasury of Knowledge - Volume 7 — Book 7 & Book 8, Parts 1 & 2

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.

His ten-volume Treasury of Knowledge  is a unique encyclopedic masterpiece embodying the entire range of Buddhist teachings as they were preserved in Tibet.

Foundations of Buddhist Study and Practice  comprises Book Seven and Book Eight, Parts One and Two of the Treasury of Knowledge.

Jamgon KongtrulBook Seven elucidates the various keys needed to correctly interpret, understand, and contemplate Buddhist teachings, including the secret teachings of the Vajrayana.

Parts One and Two of Book Eight explain how the teachings are to be integrated into one’s life through the practice of meditation, which unites a state of one-pointed attention with profound insight into emptiness.

Jamgon Kongtrul's evenhanded, elegant, and authoritative statement of such controversial doctrines as unqualified emptiness ("self-empty") and qualified emptiness ("other-empty"), provisional and definitive meaning, and conventional and ultimate truth as presented in the various schools of Tibetan Buddhism will appeal to both serious Dharma practitioners and advanced students and scholars.
