In the Spring of 1996, Ringu Tulku returned to Kagyu Samye Ling in Scotland to give his fourth sequence of teachings on The Treasury of Knowledge. These 22 recordings cover the entire month of these talks and students’ Q&As. As always the Ringu Tulku Archive is enormously grateful to Kagyu Samye Ling for recording these teachings at the time, and for subsequently making them available through this Archive, to benefit practitioners and scholars for generations to come.
Although not available at the time these teachings were given, these 3 chapters of Book 6 have now been translated and published in English and are available both in paper and ebook form, through SnowLion/Shambhala publications (URL links below):
“The first two parts of Book Six concern Indo-Tibetan classical learning and Buddhist phenomenology:
Book Six Part Three Frameworks of Buddhist Philosophy, surveys the broad themes and subtle philosophical points found in more than 1500 years of Buddhist philosophical writings. In a clear and systematic manner, it sets out the traditional framework of Buddhism’s three vehicles and four philosophical systems, and provides an overview of the key points of each system. It emphasizes the strengths of each of the systems and incorporates them into a comprehensive picture of philosophical endeavor, for those seeking awakening through the combination of analytical inquiry and meditation”.
