Letting Go: A Commentary On Parting from the Four Attachments

This short but profound text is universally regarded as one of the treasures of Tibetan Buddhism. A supremely important mind training from the Sakya tradition, it was transmitted by the Buddha of Wisdom Manjushri to the great lay practitioner Sachen Kunga Nyingpo (1092-1158) when he was just twelve years old. This text is eminently practical, and is said to have the power to instill realization in the minds of practitioners as it is spoken, listened to, and understood. Geshe Sonam Ngodrup will base his explanation on a commentary by the great Sakya yogi Jetsun Drakpa Gyaltsen, who was the son of the author and the third of the five Sakya patriarchs.

In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

Such a wonderful text.
