Recollecting the Three Jewels

Khenchen Appey Rinpoche – Commentary on the Sutra of Recollecting the Three Jewels

translators: Ven. Jhampa Losal and Jay Goldberg

In this teaching, Khenchen Appey Rinpoche gives a word-for-word commentary on the Sutra of Recollecting the Three Jewels. This sutra is part of the daily liturgy in many Tibetan monasteries and constitutes an important tool for the generation of faith in the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha, the understanding of whose qualities builds a strong foundation for the entire path to liberation.

Khenchen Appey Rinpoche (1926-2010) was widely respected as one of the most eminent teachers in the Sakya tradition of our time. Belonging to the generation of masters who received their full training in Tibet, Appey Rinpoche was instrumental for the transmission of this knowledge to the new generation of teachers. He was the founder of the Sakya College in Dehradun, India, and of the International Buddhist Academy in Kathmandu, Nepal, and initiated the digitisation of hundreds of volumes of the Sakya tradition.
