Wylie:Spyan ras gzigs kyi lam gyi rim pa rdo rje'i tshig rkang
Whether Mitrayogin received this poem from Avalokiteshvara and used it as the basis for the sādhana, pith instructions, and guide that he subsequently transmitted to his disciple Shrīputra or whether he himself composed it as a concise presentation of the teachings he received from Avalokiteshvara is not clear from the colophon. In any case, these few pages essentialize the instructions contained in the three texts that follow. Their condensed form is impossible to understand fully without the relevant commentary provided in those texts. The subject of the poem covers the entire path, from reflecting on the precious human life, through the preliminary practices, to the visualizations and mantra recitation of the generation stage and the different practices of the perfection stage, culminating in the teachings on the intermediate state, or bardo.

Information about Unicode Tibetan and the digitization of this text
As the only available unicode Tibetan text at the time, Nitartha International's version of the Paro Edition of the gdams ngag mdzod is provided here. However, note that it has not been thoroughly edited and that there may also be mistakes introduced through the conversion process. Eventually we will provide a fully edited version of the entire Shechen Edition, entered and edited multiple times by Pulahari Monastery in Nepal, but as of fall 2017 that project has not been finished. Note that the folio numbers that appear throughout were added by Nitartha Input Center at the time of input.
