Showing the Path of Liberation: The Kagyu Lineage Prayer

Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche (Author) Geshe Lharampa (Author)
Synopsis This text has been called a "prayer" and "aspiration", and a "chant". This text is a prayer in that we pray to Dorje Chang to help us in our practice but it is a Buddhist prayer which means we do not believe that there is some higher power up there who if pleased gives us what we want and if displeased gives us nothing. Thrangu Rinpoche has said we should realize that what we are trying to do is open ourselves up to receive the blessings (Tib. chin lap) of the lineage. The present book contains the Kagyu lineage prayer; an introduction to showing the path of liberation; the superior qualities of the lineage Gurus; the foundations practices; meditation; notes; glossary; the glossary of Tibetan terms; and the bibliography.

Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche was born in Kham in 1933. At the age of five he was formally recognized by the Sixteenth Karmapa and the previous situ Rinpoche as the incarnation of the great Thrangu tulku. From the ages of seven to sixteen he entered Thrangu monastery and studied reading, writing, grammar, poetry, astrology, memorized ritual texts and completed two preliminary retreats. At the age of sixteen he began the study of the three vehicles of Buddhism under the direction of Khenpo Lodro Rabsel. He also spent time in retreat. At the age of twenty-three and the time of the Chinese Military takeover, Rinpoche left Tibet for Rumtek monastery in Sikkim where the Karmapa had his seat in exile. At the age of thirty-five he took the geshe examination before 1,500 monks at Buxador monastic refugee camp in Bengal and was awarded the highest degree of Rabjam. On his return to Rumtek he was named Khenpo or main teacher of Rumtek and all other Kagyu monasteries and became abbot of Rumtek monastery and also of the Nalanda Institute for Higher Buddhist studies also at Rumtek.
