Summary note
"Gesar of Ling is widely known as the hero of Tibet's national oral epic, considered the longest epic in the world. But he is also the focus of Buddhist practices in which his enlightened form known as King Gesar the Jewel becomes one of the numerous spiritual methods offered by Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism to progress towards buddhahood. This work contains the complete selection of practice texts compiled by the early modern Tibetan polymath Ju Mipham and included in his Collected Works"-- Provided by publisher.
