New paperback edition. This renowned work by the eleventh-century master Padampa Sangye is translated by the Padmakara group, accompanied by a commentary by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. The Hundred Verses of Advice presents clear and straightforward spiritual advice given by Padampa Sangye to the Tibetan villagers of Tingri for the ordinary difficulties of everyday life: family squabbles, disagreements with neighbours, competition in the marketplace, fixation on material possessions, betrayal by friends, loneliness, and craving for sensory pleasures. Simple and direct, this short work is remarkably relevant for modern-day students of Buddhism. "An extraordinary treasure: a moving and deeply transforming teaching by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, one of the greatest masters of our time." Sogyal Rinpoche. "Were we to take these verses to heart, our relationships would be transformed, our minds would be at ease, and we would no longer be afraid of death; our lives would be seamlessly devoted to our own freedom and to the well-being of others." Sharon Salzberg.
