In this unique compendium of teachings, Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol provides practical yet profound directives that cover the entire Tibetan Buddhist path to enlightenment, with pithy instructions regarding the graded stages of the path (lam-rim); the practice of calm abiding and special insight; bodhichitta; the bodhisattva vow; and study of the six perfections, Mahamudra, and Dzogchen. Through twenty-three pieces of advice, Shabkar takes the essentials of Tibetan Buddhist spiritual practice (based on Je Tsongkhapa’s Great Graded Path, or lam rim chen mo) and presents them in the form of questions and answers, alternating verse and prose, to give a deep-rooted and concise set of instructions.
"I am extremely grateful to Gelong Tenzin Jamchen (Sean Price) for kindly offering to the eyes and minds of countless readers and dharma practitioners this inspiring and accurate translation of these most precious teachings." —from the introduction by Matthieu Ricard
"Shabkar Tsogruk Rangdrol was an astonishing, highly realized master of Vajrayana Buddhism. He lived the simple life of a hermit, yet his activity and view were extremely vast and all encompassing. I’m sure that anyone who reads The Emanated Scripture of Manjushri will be struck by Shabkar’s simple yet extremely profound contemplations." —Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche
