Karma Chakme's Mountain Dharma is a complete text for those who want to practice Tibetan Buddhism. Whether you are in an intensive retreat where you practice most of the time or in a busy life where you practice as much as you can, the issues are the same, the practices are the same, and the postmeditation is the same. Mountain Dharma contains everything you need to undertake any practice, from the most basic to the tantrayana, including how to conduct a proper retreat. Because this text is very precise and very clear, you do not have to obtain sixty different texts. Volume four explores the conduct and lifestyle that create an appropriate framework for Dharma including how to relate to the sangha, incorporating insights on how to benefit others through the traditions of scholarship and realization, and includes a comprehensive exploration of the phenomenon of death.
Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, born in East Tibet in 1924, is one of the great masters of the Karma Kagyu tradition.
