The Kagyu and Nyingma traditions of Himalayan tantric Buddhism require a long period of intensive training in meditation—a three-year, three-month retreat—before a practitioner is considered to be a qualified teacher. Jamgon Kongtrul's Retreat Manual was written in the mid-nineteenth century for those who wish to embark on this rigorous training. It guides them in preparing for retreat, provides full details of the program of meditation, and offers advice for their re-entry into the world.

Jamgon Kongtrul's Retreat Manual also introduces us to one of the towering figures of nineteenth-century Tibet: Jamgon Kongtrul the Great (1813–99). The three-year retreat center he describes in this book was his creation, and its program consisted of those practices Kongtrul treasured enough to pass on to future generations through the spiritual leaders he trained.

From the Back Cover:

In the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions, a three-year, three-month meditation retreat must be completed before a person is considered a lama (teacher). This manual was written for individuals wanting this rigorous training and consists of spiritual practices Kongtrul considered most essential--he guides students preparing for retreat, provides full details of the meditation program and offers advice for re-entry into the world.

"The translation of this text allows the reader a unique and unlimited view inside the secluded walls of one of Tibet's most influential meditation training centers."--The Indian International Journal of Buddhist Studies

Ngawang Zangpo (Hugh Leslie Thompson) completed two three-year retreats under the direction of the late Kalu Rinpoche. He is presently working on a number of translation projects under the direction of Chadral Rinpoche and Lama Tharchin Rinpoche. His previous works include Jamgon Kongtrul's Retreat Manual and Enthronement: Recognition of the Reincarnate Masters of Tibet and The Himalayas. He also contributed to the work of Kalu Rinpoche's translation group's books Myriad Worlds and Buddhist Ethics.

About the Author:

Jamgön Kongtrül (1813–1899) was a versatile and prolific scholar. He has been characterized as a "Tibetan Leonardo" because of his significant contributions to religion, education, medicine, and politics.
