Description
 
After achieving supreme attainment in India, Mahasidda Padampa Sangye traveled to Tibet and settled in Dingri in the Xizang Province near Mt. Everest. After teaching in that area for many years, Padampa Sangye returned to India. Prior to leaving Dingri he taught eighty verses of advice (sometimes split into 100 verses) to his disciples. These verses provide profound advice relevant to any dharma practitioner. The first verse summarizes the entire set of teachings, advising us not to waste our lives on mundane pursuits, but rather to direct all of our resources to practicing the dharma. The verses then begin by explaining why it makes no sense to hold on to our attachments to mundane possessions, family, friends and even our body, as well as why we should cultivate loving kindness and compassion for all sentient beings. These introductory verses lay the groundwork for an extensive and profound teaching on the only thing we can rely on -- the ultimate nature of mind, thoughts, emotions and phenomena. These verses use many skillful analogies to explain the ultimate nature. This teaching is brilliant. The talk on the verses that explain the ultimate nature merits repeated viewing. Lama Yeshe Gyamtso provides superb translation. These audio recordings have been edited in the "Mainly English" format.

Additional commentary on these teachings by Padampa Sangye can be found in The Hundred Verses of  Advice of Padampa Sangye (Sechen Publications 2002).
Features
  • "Mainly English" Edition
  • Because Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche spoke for long periods of time in Tibetan, his long monologues have been curtailed so that the continuity of the English translations of these teaching is not broken. Thus, the voice heard for the vast majority of the time is that of the translator, Lama Yeshe Gyamtso. The unedited teaching (including all Tibetan) is available on DVD.

  • MP3CD Recordings
    MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have MP3 or MP3-WMA clearly marked on the front of it.
  • The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
