The Four Dharmas of Gampopa are the quintessence that brings together the very profound and vast meaning of the Buddha’s entire teachings in just four lines:
Dharma becomes the Dharma.
Dharma becomes the path.
The path dispels confusion.
Confusion dawns as wisdom.

Sometimes we put it as a supplication or a prayer:
Grant your magnificent blessings so that my mind and the minds of all sentient beings may follow the Dharma.
Grant your magnificent blessings so that Dharma may follow along the path.
Grant your magnificent blessings so that confusion may be dispelled from the path.
Grant your magnificent blessings so that confusion may dawn as wisdom.


The Four Dharmas of Gampopa, the realization of the enlightened Gampopa, are the profound pith instructions of the path to buddhahood in four lines. To unfold their deep and vast meaning, Gampopa taught extensively, and many commentaries have been written by great masters including Lord Jigten Sumg├Ân, the founder of Drikung Kagyu lineage, who said, ÔÇťOf the 84,000 doors of Dharma taught by the Buddha, there is nothing that is not included in these four Dharmas. They are the complete and unmistaken path that leads to ultimate enlightenment.ÔÇŁ This book contains the essence of Lord Jigten Sumg├Ân’s commentaries as taught by Venerable Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen Rinpoche in a clear, compassionate, accessible, and complete way.

Gampopa (1074-1153), MilarepaÔÇÖs heart disciple and the author of The Jewel Ornament of Liberation, merged and actualized the wisdom from the lineages of the Profound View, Vast Action, and Magnificent Blessing Realization, and attained buddhahood. Thereafter, he taught extensively, passing down his wisdom and realization through unbroken lineages and writings collected in five volumes. He is highly venerated and praised by all.

Venerable Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen Rinpoche was born in 1946 in Tsari, Tibet. After nine years of higher buddhist studies, he furthered his study with H.E. Khunu Lama and went into retreat under the guidance of H.E. Khyunga Rinpoche, Vajradhara Pachung Rinpoche, and Gelong Tenzin Nyima Rinpoche. After coming to USA in 1982 and founding the Tibetan Meditation Center, for forty years Rinpoche has been tirelessly travelling and showing the path that purifies obscurations and leads to perfect enlightenment to his disciples all over the world. Revered and beloved as an accomplished scholar, meditation master, teacher, translator, and author, like the sun that shines impartially upon all, RinpocheÔÇÖs radiance of compassion, vast knowledge and wisdom inspires, benefits, and ripens us all.
