In Tibetan religious literature, Jamg n Kongtr l's Treasury of Knowledge in ten books stands out as a unique, encyclopedic masterpiece embodying the entire range of Buddhist teachings as it was preserved in Tibet.
Jamg n Kongtr l (1813 1899) was a versatile and prolific scholar. He has been characterized as a "Tibetan Leonardo" because of his significant contributions to religion, education, medicine, and politics.
"Jamg n Kongtrul Lodr Tay was one of the leading scholars of the
nineteenth century. He broke through sectarian constraints and
achieved a deep understanding of the different philosophical
approaches in Tibet. I have no doubt that by studying Kongtrul's
works readers will be inspired to emulate his great qualities of
humility, dedication, patience, and nonsectarianism."--H.H. the
"The Treasury of Knowledge excellently presents the entire corpus of the sutra and mantra traditions, from the path of the common sciences all the way up to the uncommon Great Perfection, or Atiyoga, which is the culmination of the nine vehicles."--H.H.
