The Life of Gampopa

by Jampa Mackenzie Stewart

#SLP0695

$15.95, plus shipping


Here is the first complete life story of Gampopa, foremost disciple of Milarepa and a forefather of the Kagyu lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. Compiled from numerous Tibetan biographies, this comprehensive and inspiring rendition highlights the extraordinary details of Gampopla's meditative experiences and presents direct insights into the practices and realization of Mahamudra.

A history of the Kagyu order by Lobsang P. Lhalungpa augments Gampopa's biography, illustrating this revered teacher's central role in the development of Tibetan Buddhism. A concluding essay on Mahamudra introduces Vajrayana Buddhism to beginners, while simultaneously supporting advanced practitioners with fresh insights.

"Jampa Stewart's biography of the remarkable being most responsible for the rapid growth of his guru Milarepa's glorious Kagyu tradition is both informative and inspiring, and will be a valuable addition to the library of anyone interested in the profound ways in which the spiritual realizations of a single individual can impact the lives of countless beings in many different cultures over the centuries. Highly recommend it."

--Jonathan Landaw
