Treatise on Awareness


Ordinary Awareness & Pristine Awareness: A Treatise on the Distinction

Composed by the 3rd Karmapa Rangjung Dorje (1284-1339), this treatise on the nature of awareness has been characterized by Tibetan masters as articulating a distinctive "zhentong" view. Rangjung Dorje's poetic work distinguishes the minds of buddhas from those of non-buddhas in clear and precise prose, giving us insights into the subtle movements and dynamics of awareness.
