- A Hundred Teachings From the Heart
- The Wisdom of Drikung Bhande Dharmaradza

The author of this remarkable and inspiring text, Drikung Bhande Dharmaradza (1704-1754), was the reincarnation of the great Drikung Dharmakirti (1595-1659), the first of the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang Rinpoches. Revered for centuries as a combined emanation of Manjushri and Guru Padmasambhava, these great lamas have held one of the thrones of the Drikung Kagyu lineage from the seventeenth century up to the present day.

Drikung Lama Chopa RefugeIn these Hundred Teachings from the Heart , Dharmaradza maps out, in verse, the entire structure of the Buddhist path according to both sutra and tantra.

The teachings given here are honest and direct, yet rich in analogy, and cover topics ranging from the first contemplations on impermanence to how the disciplines and vows of the three yanas may be practiced without conflict or contradiction.

The book's concluding section, "The Life of Drikung Bhande Dharmaradza", was taken from The Golden Rosary of the Drikung Kagyu  - a lineage history composed by Tendzin Pemai Gyaltsen (1770-1826).
