about this item

Explore two seminal Sakya texts with an incomparable teacher.

His Holiness Kyabgon Gongma Sakya Trichen Rinpoche, the noble forty-first head of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism, with his trademark clarity and deep wisdom here unpacks two texts by the legendary thirteenth-century Drogön Chögyal Phagpa. The fifth leader of the Sakya school, Chögyal Phagpa became the first imperial preceptor under Kublai Khan and thus converted the Mongols to Tibetan Buddhism. His two texts presented here, A Gift of Dharma to Kublai Khan and A Garland of Jewels, which was written as advice for Prince Gibek Timur, are marvels of insight.

Freeing the Heart and Mind begins with a biography of Chögyal Phagpa by Ngawang Kunga Sönam, himself an important Sakya throneholder. The two texts are then presented in sparkling translation, each accompanied by penetrating commentary from His Holiness, who takes these texts, written initially for royalty, and shows how their timeless lessons—how to meditate, the personal characteristics we should cultivate, and the states on the path to buddhahood—can be incorporated into our lives today.

A must-read for students of the Sakya tradition, with a gorgeous full-color photo section, it can be enjoyed either as the second volume in the course developed by His Holiness or as a stand-alone volume on its own merits.
