Synopsis:
In Tibetan religious literature, Jamgon Kongtrul`s Treasury of Knowledge in ten volumes stands out as a unique encyclopedic masterpiece embodying the entire range of Buddhist teachings.

This volume from the sixth book of the Treasury is a survey of classic Indian learning as it was preserved and practiced in Tibet - including subjects such as medicine, astrology, and logic - and of the philosophy of non-Buddhist schools. The second part of this book is an analysis of Buddhist phenomenology.

This work analyzes the traditional subjects of phonology and Sanskrit grammar, logic, fine art and medicine, along with astrology, poetics, prosody, synonymics, and dramaturgy. The principal non-Buddhist philosophical systems of ancient India are then summarized and contrasted with the hierarchical meditative concentrations and formless absorptions through which the summit of cyclic existence can genuinely be attained. Part Two examines the phenomenological structures of Abhidharma - the shared inheritance of all Buddhist traditions - from three distinct perspectives, corresponding to the threee successive turnings of wheel of Dharma.

"The Treasury of Knowledge excellently presents the entire corpus of the sutra and mantra traditions, from the path of the common sciences all the way up to the uncommon Great Perfection, or Atiyoga (Dzogchen), which is the culmination of the nine vehicles." Dudjom Rinpoche.

"Jamgon Kongtrul was a true saint, a great scholar, an exemplary teacher, a renowned physician, a peacemaker, and one of the most prolific writers of Tibet…the Five Great Treatises of Kongtrul..enshrine all the wisdom of Tibet." Ringu Tulku.
