Gathering the Garlands of the Gurus’ Precious Teachings KTD Publications, a part of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra (www.kagyu.org), is a not-for-profit publisher established with the purpose of facilitating the projects and activities manifesting from His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa’s inspiration and blessings. We are dedicated to “gathering the garlands of precious teachings” of the past and present and producing fine-quality books.

It provides clear descriptions of the three main sections: the four common preliminary practices (the Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind); the four special preliminary practices (Prostrations, Vajrasattva Practice, Mandala Offering, and Guru Yoga); and the main practice of Mahamudra. Each section contains instructions on what to do and then how to bring the practice into your experience from your whole being. This is the text that the Gyalwang Kar mapa has been teaching for the last years at Kagyu Monlam and will continue to teach in the future. This year he will explain the instructions on Vajrasattva practice. This new translation is special in that the Kar mapa has gone over the English and made many sug gestions which were incorporated into this version. +VisitOurN e wW e bsit e !
