Practice Overview

  1. The Treasury of Blessings is a well-known practice text written in 1900 by Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche (1846-1912) at the request of Orgyen Tendzin Norbu (orgyan bstan ‘dzin nor bu (1841-1900), a close student of the great Dza Patrul Rinpoche. Mipham also wrote an extensive “supporting teaching” on the text called The White Lotus (yab chö pé ma karpo). No empowerment is required to practice this text, but one should receive the reading transmission from a qualified teacher.

The late Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche summarized oral teachings on this supportive teaching in an adaptation titled The Sage who Dispels Mind’s Anguish. We encourage you to download this text and return to it frequently as you gain practice experience. This concise explanation gives clear instructions on the meditation practice and the stages of experience one cultivates when practicing the Treasury of Blessings. In that adaptation, Khyentse Rinpoche reminds all Buddhist practitioners of the Buddha’s central role as teacher.
