In this skillful translation, Herbert Guenther offers English-speaking readers sGam.po.pa’s comprehensive and authoritative exposition of the stages of the Buddhist path. A masterly survey of Tibetan Buddhism,The Jewel Ornament of Liberation explains how an enlightened attitude is strengthened by practicing the six perfections (generosity, discipline, patience, exertion, meditation, and knowledge) and offers a concise presentation of Buddhism as a living experience.
As Ch_gyam Trungpa writes in his forword: “It is in the flow of karma that this book materialized in 1959 on the very eve of the destruction of the spiritual land of Tibet. Professor Guenther was instrumental in making available the only commentary and guide in English to the bodhisattva tradition of Tibet, Japan, and China. The book remains the classic text of all Buddhists.”
