Vasubandhu’s Verses on the Treasury of Abhidharma with Commentary by the 9th Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje
རྗེ་མི་བསྐྱོད་ཞབས་ཀྱི་རྣམ་ཐར་བསྟོད་པ།
Translation: Khenpo David Karma Choephel

There are many accounts of the Eighth Karmapa Mikyö Dorje’s life and liberation, both written by himself and by others. Among them, this book contains two praises he wrote of himself, Autobiographical Verses of Karmapa Mikyö Dorje Called “Good Deeds” and The Praise “He Searched Thoroughly…”

Good Deeds gives an account of his life by recounting thirty-three of his good deeds. At that time, he was one of the greatest lamas of the Dakpo Kagyu, and this is one of longer among his autobiographical works in verse. There is a commentary on it by Sangye Paldrup. The Praise “He Searched Thoroughly…” teaches nine different points about his life. It is included in the prayer book compiled by Situ Panchen Chökyi Jungne, and there is a complete explanation of it in Pawo Tsuglak Trengwa’s Dharma History: A Feast for the Learned.

This ebook edition of these two texts was prepared for the 2021/2022 Arya Kshema Spring Dharma Teachings for the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa’s teaching of these two texts. We hope to publish the commentaries on these two texts soon.
