Kachen Yeshe Gyaltsen’s commentary on the First Panchen Lama’s liturgical text Lama Chöpa stands as one of the great literary contributions to the Gelug Hearing Lineage. Revealing a treasury of closely guarded oral instructions, this amazing text was written at the behest of the Third Panchen Lama, Palden Yeshe. Highly informative and deeply moving, Manjushri’s Innermost Secret contains the entire path to enlightenment that was transmitted in direct communication with Lama Tsongkhapa by the wisdom-buddha Manjushri.
Many of these teachings were previously held as sealed- in-secret oral instructions that swiftly guide the spiritual practitioner to the state of complete enlightenment through the full spectrum of teachings on the lamrim and mind training (lojong) as well as the generation and completion stages of highest yoga tantra, all of which are centered around, and grounded in, deep heart-felt faith and devotion for one’s spiritual guide.
In addition to the Lama Chöpa ritual text itself, this book also includes the First Panchen Lama’s root text on Ganden Mahamudra, the supplication verses to the lineage gurus, and the Fifty Verses of Guru Devotion composed by the Indian saint Ashvagosha.
This text is restricted to those who have received a Highest Yoga Tantra empowerment.
