Sakya Pandita's Treasury of Good Advice

Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltsen (1182–1251) was a renowned scholar and Tibetan statesman who staved off a Mongolian invasion by converting Emperor Godan Khan to Buddhism. A luminary of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism, his peerless erudition stands out even among a tradition known for its scholastic adepts, and many of his works have been bedrock texts for study and practice since the thirteenth century.

Sakya PanditaA popular guide to the art of living, the Sakya Legshe - or "Treasury of Good Advice" - has been fundamental to the development of Tibetan culture and character.

As in Aesop's Fables, Sakya Pandita uses proverbs and stories to address the basic question: "How are we to live peaceably with ourselves and with others?"

This is the only available English translation of the Sakya Legshe - a book that reveals the heart of the Buddhist way of life.
