“Advice from the heart for the path of liberation. In his distinctive clear and direct style, Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen uncovers the richness and depth of Buddhist songs of realization, which are the lifeblood of the Kagyu tradition.”—Douglas Duckworth, author of Jamgön Mipam: His Life and Teachings 

Spiritual teachings in the form of songs—spontaneous expressions of deep wisdom and understanding that reveal the nature of reality—have been treasured since the dawn of Buddhism in India. In Opening the Treasure of the Profound, Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen translates nine such songs, by Milarepa and Jigten Sumgön, and then explains them in contemporary terms. His insights take the Buddha’s ancient wisdom out of the realm of the intellectual and directly into our hearts. Here, we are invited into the world of transmission from master to disciple in order to discover truth for ourselves—to open the treasure of profound wisdom that fully realizes the nature of reality.
