The name of a text by Shabkar. (RY)

The Emanated Scriptures of the Kadampas. By Shabkar's own account, this work--composed at Mount Kailash around 1815--is intended to make the meaning of the Kadampas' Graded Path easily intelligible to ordinary people. This text is a perfect example of Shabkar's colorful style. Beginning with renunciation and culminating with the six paramitas, it abounds with stories and anecdotes illustrating teachings on practices for various individuals of limited, medium, and superior faculties. It may be considered a lively, expanded version of The Torch That Illuminates the Graded Path. (MR) from The Life of Shabkar, page 581.
