Precious Garland of the Supreme Path

This well loved text from the Kagyu tradition was composed by Gampopa, the gentle monk disciple of Tibet's most famous yogi Lord Milarepa. Gampopa was Milarepa's closest student and a great practitioner of meditation. His spiritual journey, like that of his master, had many obstacles, so his texts speak a great deal about transforming difficult circumstances. It is a favourite of both His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness the Karmapa who have taught it several times.
From the text:

"Modest conduct and high thinking are an unmistaken principle to be observed.
To have broad view, open mind, and strong commitment is an unmistaken principle to be observed.
To have supreme wisdom and less pride is an unmistaken principle to be observed.
To have the supreme experience and Enlightenment without arrogance and vanity is an unmistaken principle to be observed."

Friday February 14, 8.00 p.m. until Sunday February 16, 5.00 p.m.

A foolish man proclaims his qualifications,
A wise man keeps them secret within.
A straw floats on the surface of water,
But a precious gem placed upon it sinks to the depths
-Sakya Pandita
