TRANSCENDING EGO:  Distinguishing Consciousness from Wisdom
by Thrangu Rinpoche

Distinguishing Consciousness from Wisdom is a translation of the root verses of the Third Karmapa, Rangjung Dorje, accompanied by a line-by-line commentary by Thrangu Rinpoche, the foremost scholar of this tradition.

Rinpoche, with his vast experience in meditation, explains how the eight consciousnesses function and how they are transformed into the five wisdoms at enlightenment.

This text on Buddhist psychology was written 800 years ago by one of the greatest scholars and meditators of his time. Thrangu Rinpoche's very lucid commentary makes it clear that Rangjung Dorje's text is extremely relevant and important to the meditator of today. 

The book can be ordered from Namo Buddha Publications, the source for Thrangu Rinpoche's teachings :

An EPub PDF copy of bookis also available at:  conwisdom.pdf

Please read Chapter 1 for the first class. Strongly recommended would be to also read the Editor’s Forward and Translators Preface.
