Shantarakshita, also known as Khenpo Bodhisattva, was the abbot of India’s Buddhist Nalanda University in the eighth century, where he united the Madhyamika and Yogachara schools of thought. He went to Tibet at the invitation of King Trisong Detsen, founded the temple of Samye and established the first monastic tradition. After a time his teachings were all but lost for many generations. In the nineteenth century Ju Mipham, at the request of his teacher, Jamyang Kyentse Wangpo, wrote the commentary for the Ornament of the Middle Way. Thrangu Rinpoche notes that this teaching proves through logic why all the appearances we see are mind, and why the essence of mind is naturally empty. This teaching helps generate deep certainty that can benefit those who meditate on Mahamudra and Dzogchen and when receiving the oral instructions of pointing out the nature of the mind. Rinpoche received the transmission for this teaching from a student of Mipham Rinpoche himself. Thus this teaching comes to the present day via a short and direct lineage.

  • Mainly English Edition Because Thrangu Rinpoche often speaks for long periods of time in Tibetan when he teaches, his long monologues have been curtailed on CD and MP3 CD recordings (audio) to preserve the continuity of the teaching and make listening easier. Thus the voice heard for the majority of the time is that of the translator. DVD video recordings include all of Rinpoche’s Tibetan.
  • These audio files 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).
