Teachings by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche on the text ‘Peycho Rinchen Pungpa’ by the great Kadampa master Geshe Potowa. What makes it so special are the many examples and illustrations, from day to day life, from the Jataka stories or other stories and sayings. It covers all of Buddhism, from the early buddhist teachings, going for Refuge to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, to the Tantrayana.
This is one of the most important teachings of the Kadampa school of Buddhism. Geshe Potowa (1031 – 1106) was a direct disciple of Dromtönpa, who was one of the main disciples of Atisha Dipamkara. The many teachings of Potowa with all the examples were collected and written down by his students. So far neither the main teaching nor the commentary or the story book were translated into English.
