Mipham’s Beacon of Certainty - Foreword
by His Holiness Penor Rinpoche
Lama Mipham was a great Nyingma scholar of the nineteenth century who wrote a prodigious number of works on all subjects, including numerous brilliant commentaries on both sūtra and tantra. His work translated here by John Whitney Pettit as the Beacon of Certainty is particularly famous and is one of the most beneﬁcial for clearing away confusion and doubt regarding views, paths, and meditation.
It is my earnest hope that John Pettit’s translation will bring great beneﬁt to foreign students and scholars in the study of both philosophy and meditation practice.
This work is valuable indeed. I pray that all sentient beings may beneﬁt from this text and ultimately attain enlightenment.
