Many study the words of the Buddha and his disciples, but few are able to develop unshakable confi dence in his teaching based on thorough, personal investigation. Even fewer are those whose knowledge of the Dharma is both profound with regard to its nature and vast in terms of the classes of teaching mastered. And as rare as stars in bright daylight are those who, through perseverance in the practice of the liberating path, have gained true realization. Khenchen Appey Rinpoche was indeed of such caliber, revered as one of the most learned and accomplished masters in recent times.
The first volume of the collection of teachings by Khenchen Appey Rinpoche includes a number of teachings on various subjects, ranging from pith instructions on mind training to teachings on Buddhist philosophy and short commentaries.
“Khenchen Appey Rinpoche was the founder of both Sakya College in Dehra Dun, India, and the International Buddhist Academy in
Kathmandu, Nepal. He was a great scholar and highly realized master. His teachings and writings are clear and concise and a great
benefit to all, especially those committed to the Dharma path.” — from the foreword by His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin
