History of the Parting from the Four Attachments

When he was twelve years old, one of the great founding lamas of Sakya, Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, did a long retreat on the practice of the Bodhisattva of Wisdom Manjushri. During the retreat Sachen had a direct vision of Manjushri who spoke to him four lines, the ‘Parting from the Four Attachments’.

When Sachen reflected on these lines he realized that they summarized all the practices of the mahayana Buddhist path.  Since that time, many great masters of Sakya school have expounded and the text,  making it to be one of the most popular and famous teachings of the Sakya tradition.
