Dharma Handbook

Commentary by Tashi Nyima. Revised Second Edition

The Dharma Handbook, formally known as The General Commentary on the Doctrine (Tib. Bstan sta spyi ‘grel,), is a prayer composed by Kunchen Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen (1292–1361) that systematically summarizes the entirety of Buddhist doctrine. In compact form, The Dharma Handbook offers beginning and advanced practitioners an opportunity to hear, contemplate, and meditate on the Three Cycles of the Buddha’s teaching.
