The Treasury of Knowledge Book Nine and Ten: Journey and Goal

An Analysis of the Spiritual Paths and Levels to be Traversed and the Consummate Fruition State

by Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye

Translated, introduced, and annotated by Richard Barron

Jamgon Kongtrul’s ten-volume Treasury of Knowledge is a unique encyclopedic masterpiece embodying the entire range of Buddhist teachings as they were preserved in Tibet. Tibetan Buddhist teachers expected their students to study Buddhist philosophical texts as well as practice reflection and meditation; present-day students have also realized that awakening has its source in study as well as in reflection and practice. Journey and Goal focuses on the spiritual path—”the journey”, and the resultant state of enlightenment to which it leads—”the goal.” Extensively varied perspectives are offered, not only from within the many schools of Buddhism, but also from the different levels of practice and attainment.
