The Internal Reality of Human Beings
The material in this section presents the nature of the human body and how it can be used as a powerful support for spiritual practice. This includes understanding how the body evolves over time and how to avoid death in order to take full advantage of this precious human rebirth.
By Kalki Manjushri Yashas and Jetsun Taranatha
This text contains verses from the second chapter of the Abridged Tantra in which Manjushri Yashas describes the development of the human body and how it acts as a support for the sufferings of samsara. By understanding the profound nature of this body, it can be used as a basis for achieving enlightenment. This essential summary was composed with verses extracted from the Jonang translation created by Kunkhyen Dolpopa and his students and later arranged by Jetsun Taranatha.
