Mani Kabum Translation by H.E. Trizin Tsering Rinpoche

Postby Mr. G » Mon Jan 30, 2012 1:01 pm

Has anyone read or gotten a copy of this two volume set? It looks amazing, but too much for me to afford at this time. Hopefully sometime this year.

Excellent! But I hope they publish an ebooks version.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

From the forward, by the editor:

My job was a lot easier. It was like weeding a forest. I just had to be careful not to remove the right words, and English grammar was really not a top priority. As long as the reader is able to grasp the essence of the text, its purpose is served.


With all due respect to the long hours they've put into this "translation", I find this sentiment completely unacceptable.

This 'reviewer' was very impressed with the very presence of the text: http://tibetanaltar.blogspot.com/2009/0 ... iewed.html

The price is $268 (Singapore$), which is about $215 US.

Is this Mani Kabum the same as the Karanda-vyuha Sutra?

Mani Kabum (Wyl. ma Ni bka' 'bum) - a collection of teachings and practices focused on Avalokiteshvara, attributed to King Songtsen Gampo and revealed as a terma by three different masters: the siddha Ngödrup, Nyangrel Nyima Özer, and Shakya Ö.
