2015: The Chödung Karmo Translation Group is very happy to announce its latest publication, Yael Bentor’s bilingual edition/translation of Jetsün Dragpa Gyaltsen’s “Clarifying The Meaning Of The Arga And Consecration Rituals”.
Jetsün Dragpa Gyaltsen (1147-1216) was one of the five founding masters of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. Renowned for his spiritual accomplishments and songs of realisation, Dragpa Gyaltsen was instrumental in developing the tantric teachings of his tradition. Among Dragpa Gyaltsen’s many writings, his explanation of the arga and consecration rituals represents an important milestone in this genre of literature, being one of the earliest and at the same time most influential treatments of this subject. This publication contains the Tibetan original, translated and introduced by Yael Bentor.
