Illumination of the Path to Freedom by His Holiness the First Dalai Lama Gyalwa Gendun Drup

Posted on | January 26, 2012 | 2 Comments

His Holiness the First Dalai Lama Gyalwa Gendun DrupIllumination of the Path to Freedom by His Holiness the First Dalai Lama Gyalwa Gendun Drup (1391-1474), is a commentary to a much older Tibetan classic:  The Treasure House of Knowledge, written by the Master Vasubandhu (350 AD). Dalai Lama starts out with an entertaining discussion about Tibetan versus Sanskrit – Tibet versus India:

“If a commentary comes from India people will take the time to study and teach it. It’s just like the local merchants. If they hear some barley has come from the lowlands, right away they want to trade for it, because the source is a good one. A commentary may be excellent, but if you don’t put some Sanskrit in it nobody wants to work with it. They think it’s just Tibetan.”

    Haven’t been able to download this after a couple tries. Adobe Reader says that it is damaged and could not be repaired.
