Origin of Parting from the Four Attachments
When the great Lama Sachen Kunga Nyingpo was twelve years old, his master, Bari Lotsawa advised him, “Since you are the son of a great master, it is important that you study the scriptures. To study, you need to acquire wisdom, and in order to acquire wisdom, you should practice Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of wisdom.”
After six months of retreat, Manjushri appeared in Lama Sakyapa’s pure vision seated on a jeweled throne and spoke this teaching which consists of just four lines. Analyzing this teaching, the young Lama Sakyapa realized that these four lines include the entireprofound practice of the Buddhist Mahayana path.
