Wheel of Sharp Weapons

Wheel of Sharp Weapons - coverThe Wheel of Sharp Weapons
- A Mahayana Training of the Mind
- by Dharmaraksita

The Wheel of Sharp Weapons Effectively Striking the Heart of the Foe has been composed by the great Yogi Dharmaraksita in his retreat in the jungle where many fierce animals pray. What this great Yogi, the possessor of vast scriptural knowledge, the full powers of logic and deep profound insight, has written here is the essence of the teachings of all his holy Gurus. He always practised in accordance with this essence in his fearsome jungle retreat during the degenerate age in which he lived.

DharmarakshitaFrom among his many unimaginably great disciples in both India and Tibet, Dharmaraksita transmitted these teachings to Atisa (982--1054), and Atisa practised them wherever he traveled in order to tame those who ware most wild. Atisa transmitted these teachings to Upasaka Dromtompa, who had been prophesied to be his most fitting disciple by many of Atisa's meditational deities such as Tara. Atisa transmitted these teachings to Dromtompa in order to pacify the minds of the disciples of remote Tibet who ware difficult to tame.

The present English translation based on its Tibetan text was done by the Translation Bureau of the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives. Commentary to The Wheel of Sharp Weapons was given by Geshe Ngawang Dhargyey.
