Reproduced from a set of prints the dpal spungs xylographs in eastern Tibet. PREFACE: Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye ('Jam-mgon Kong-sprul Blo-gros-mtha'-yas, 1813-1899), along with Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Patrul Rinpoche, Lama Mipham, and other 19th century luminaries, eloquently elucidated how all the many different Dharma teachings of the nine vehicles of Tibetan Buddhism form on coherent, non-contradictory whole. These teachers inspired the nonsectarian movement that flourished in the nineteenth century. Gathering teachings from all areas of Tibet and from masters of all spiritual traditions, these teachers -- themselves all authentic masters, scholars, poets, commentators, and accomplished yogins -- saved the heritage of Tibetan Buddhism from decline and restored its vitality, a heritage still benefiting us today. These teachings were compiled into major collections, chiefly The Five Great Treasuries (mdzod chen po lnga), which were collected and edited by Jamgön Kongtrul.
